Waco, on Netflix

If you’ve been on Netflix lately, you’ve probably seen some hype about the show Waco. It’s a six-part series featuring Taylor Kitsch and landing in the “Top 10” section of Netflix, what’s not to like? Well, if you love the American Crime Story from FX (like the OJ Simpson miniseries or the Versace one), youContinue reading “Waco, on Netflix”

Quarantarantino

For a long, long time, I have been meaning to watch all of Quentin Tarantino’s movies. Being stuck at home, I figured now is the perfect time! So I watched all 9 of the films written and directed by Tarantino, and I was pleasantly surprised. While they were all pretty lengthy — as the yearsContinue reading “Quarantarantino”

Sonic the Hedgehog

I’m going to start this one off by letting you know that I had zero expectations for this movie; my fiancé was the one who even made me go.  This was one that I was going to skip altogether.  While I found the original drama over the initial trailer hilarious, it didn’t make me wantContinue reading “Sonic the Hedgehog”

Brahms: The Boy 2

               When I first saw the preview for this movie, I was both surprised and confused.  The original, The Boy, was one of my favorite horror films of 2016, in part because of how nicely it ended and how it did not leave much room for a sequel.  I also enjoyed it because (spoiler alert): Continue reading “Brahms: The Boy 2”

Netflix’s Locke and Key

There’s been lots of hype lately about “Locke and Key,” one of Netflix’s newest thriller series. Especially given Netflix’s new Top 10 feature, it seems like lots of people are watching it. At first, I understood the hype. The first episode is creepy, and introduces a seemingly-complex story that is sure to be exciting andContinue reading “Netflix’s Locke and Key”

The Lodge

If you are a horror fan, you NEED to catch “The Lodge” while it’s still in theaters. It’s still on at Regal Opry and Regal Green Hills for the remainder of the week if you’re in Nashville. “The Lodge” is the same raw, haunting style that you see in “Hereditary” and “Midsommar,” and I’d rankContinue reading “The Lodge”

Onward

This preview just did not really speak to me, but I couldn’t figure out why…. I’m not a huge fan of mythological adventure, the characters aren’t as cute as Pixar’s normal characters, maybe something else, I wasn’t too sure.  But when I got the chance to attend an advance screening of the film, I tookContinue reading “Onward”

Downhill

               I’m not sure you can find this movie in theaters anymore, but that’s okay.  You aren’t missing anything.  With Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as lead characters, I (at first) thought it was very strange that this movie did not get much press.  Quirky preview, (pretty) big names, why aren’t they advertising this asContinue reading “Downhill”
