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. Its twisted and manic art style, character designs, and sense of humor was an instant hook for audiences, but due to its sudden cancellation (airing only a…

The Best Episodes of Invader Zim

Invader Zim has always been a unique kind of phenomenon. Upon its release in 2001, the show immediately set itself apart from everything else airing on television at the time; its bizarre sense of humor, dark subject matter, and deranged animation and art style all led to high praise from critics and audiences alike. The series…

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…

The Lobster – Love by Regulation

I really reject the repeated notion that “Hollywood is out of ideas”. You hear that over and over again, and it’s simply not true. There are endless original movies being made every day by an endless amount of filmmakers both new and old, but most people just don’t go see them. It’s something I quickly…

Swiss Army Man – The Weird, Artsy Farting Corpse Movie

I don’t really know what to make of Swiss Army Man. It’s impossible to pin down exactly what it is - it’s doesn’t fit into the confines of any one genre (I guess comedy / adventure would be the closest),  it’s incredibly strange and is proud to be so, its humor goes back and forth…

“The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” Emphasizes Education and Cooperation to Tell an Inspiring True Story

Chiwetel Ejiofor has proven himself to be a force to be reckoned with onscreen. With notable roles in films such as 12 Years a Slave, Doctor Strange, The Martian, Children of Men, and more, the actor has shown a wide range of emotion and versatility. In Netflix’s latest film, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind,…

Roma – The Power of Memory

Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón is one of the greatest visionaries of our time. That’s not opinion at this point, it’s simply a fact. So when he comes out with his first film since 2013’s awards-sweeping Gravity, which was his first film since 2006’s awards-sweeping Children of Men, and he calls it “the most essential movie”…

BoJack Horseman Season 5 – The Complexities of Accountability and Forgiveness

If you’ve never watched Netflix’s tremendously original BoJack Horseman, you need to stop whatever it is that you’re doing and start right now. BoJack is easily and immediately one of the greatest shows not just currently on television, but in television history. Its wildly imaginative and well-defined world, its deeply relatable and layered characters, and its…
