Kingdom: two seasons

When I thought nothing more could be done with the Zombie trope, this joint Netflix-Korean production proved me wrong. The zombies are more like ghouls since they can run and you must watch the series through its first two seasons … Continue reading

You: two seasons

In light of Pandemic Theater, I chose to add to the other element involved with getting through the boredom but let’s face it, binge watching was something we were already doing years ago. Netflix and other streaming services didn’t invent it … Continue reading

A Stupid and Futile Gesture

Netflix made an interesting biography flick about the first decade of National Lampoon and its co-founder Douglas Kenney. How they executed it was most impressive because it was filled with surprises: namely the casting, the story flow and it readily admitted to … Continue reading

The Wandering Earth or 流浪的地球: 掷骰子

While Endgame and Captain Marvel tally up as the biggest globally grossing movies of 2019, this Chinese attempt at mainstream Science Fiction/Disaster Porn is in third place thanks to China buying 99% of the tickets; it’s not market size, it’s the limited … Continue reading

The Big Mouth Club

I think the artist who did this shirt is one of those people that focuses on a couple themes and then does them to death. However, this mashup of the Big Mouth crowd with The Breakfast Club is rather fitting. Although Nick, … Continue reading

Big Mouth

Nick Kroll has finally done something funny! I’ve seen his stand-up, feh. His characters are mediocre. The movies he’s co-starred, I haven’t read any rave reviews. Big Mouth seems to work better as a vehicle for what he likes to do … Continue reading

DC works better on the small screen, part one

Next year, I am looking forward to Wonder Woman in theaters but I dread that it will be drenched in Zack Snyder’s style to prep the character for the inevitable Justice League mess; the other purpose behind Batman v. Superman. Here I wish the … Continue reading

Uncle Nick is an acquired taste and my new tradition

Another movie which may or may not have blown through theaters last year but I knew about it courtesy of Posehn’s now gone podcast Nerd Poker. For some, their tradition is Diehard or Gremlins, this one is more my pace. Uncle Nick is about a … Continue reading

Daredevil

Once again Netflix proves that they are a better future for TV because Daredevil is an ongoing superhero/vigilante show done well. It’s a strong balance between being ridiculously gritty/hyper-violent (HBO, Showtime) and milquetoast (all the broadcast networks). An average episode is … Continue reading
