‘Ready or Not’ Says it’s Time to Bring Out the Guillotines

The world’s on fire, and people are angry. That’s putting it mildly, but nevertheless, the collective mindset of the current generations is one of righteous fury. Every once in a while in these times of crisis there comes a movie or two that channels that rage towards the ones responsible for all the chaos and suffering…

Mindhunter Season 2 – Ego, Connection, and Serial Killers

We take a lot of things for granted in the realm of entertainment. A series about interviews with serial killers which are then used to bring the ones still at large to justice, from a brilliant mind like David Fincher, certainly tops the list. Based off of the real F.B.I. Behavioral Science Unit that surfaced…

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus Feels Like the Series Never Left

Invader Zim has endured for nearly sixteen years after it was abruptly yanked off the air by Nickelodeon, existing as a beloved cult classic in the minds of many.

Unicorn Store – Wonder, Magic, and Growing Up Without Losing Yourself

To say that Brie Larson is having a good year would be a bit of an understatement. The Oscar-winning actress smashed through the patriarchy and box office records with Captain Marvel, and less than two months later is set to reprise the role of Carol Danvers in Avengers: Endgame, a little film that’s all but guaranteed…

Climax – Dancing and Descending Into Madness

I have never seen anything quite like Climax, the hallucinatory, drug-and-sex-fueled hour and a half of chaos helmed by Argentine-French writer and director Gaspar Noé. At moments it is beautiful, at others it’s manic and depraved, and at others it’s transcendent of its own art form. It’s horrifying, hypnotic, seductive, and impossible to look away…
