As many millenials are wont to do, I love the Great British Baking Show (or Great British Bake Off for the UK fans). Every season, every challenge, every pastry fills my heart with joy. Whether it's the overt positives vibes or the adorable narratives, I was foolish enough to try one of the cutest and … Continue reading Difficult, Difficult, Lemon Difficult

Review: ‘Years and Years’ Deals in Beautiful Discomfort
It feels like every day is more saturated than the last with tragedies. The sensation is not unlike that of whiplash, a physical failure of the body and mind to adequately keep pace with the sheer barrage of information that is spewed on to the world stage with alarming frequency. Daniel Tovy’s character Danny in … Continue reading Review: ‘Years and Years’ Deals in Beautiful Discomfort
Review: Child’s Play: Let the Luddite Rebellion Begin
Chucky’s movies in relation to horror movie history came at the tail end of the 1980’s slashers zenith. Just eight short years later Scream (1996) was creating satire about a dying genre and kicking off the era of the high school dramas. The original is bad. I sincerely suggest that everyone go back and watch … Continue reading Review: Child’s Play: Let the Luddite Rebellion Begin
Is The New Evangelion Dub Really That Bad?
While away on my Japanese excursion something incredible happened, Netflix finally released the iconic Neon Genesis Evangelion to a wide American audience for the first time since Toonami did back in 2003.

A Grinch’s Guide to Atypical Holiday Movies
If you're like me (and you aren't because I'm special goddammit) then you are tired of watching the same 3 overly saccharine Christmas movies every year. Luckily, there has been a cultural uprising as of late to include Die Hard into the Christmas movie line-up as a sweet piece of counter-culture. It's a good start, … Continue reading A Grinch’s Guide to Atypical Holiday Movies
Trailer Talk: Detective Pikachu Brings Pokemon to Life In a 3D World.
If you hadn't heard, the Toy Story 4 teaser came out today. Kind of a big deal.

What I found there was an entire feed of nothing but the … Continue reading Trailer Talk: Detective Pikachu Brings Pokemon to Life In a 3D World.
