Not sure Yet

Not Sure Yet Last weekend, with much fanfare and anticipation, “Star Trek Discovery” premiered. Before the first 2 episodes of the show aired, quite a few of my friends were adamant… …more

Real or Made-up?

Real or Made-Up? When I was a kid I was intrigued by makeup. I would stand by my mother, her hair in curlers as she applied powders, creams, and colours, getting ready for the day. I wanted to do the same. Despite dabbing a little lipstick on my lips and… …more

Best of the Worst

Best of the Worst As a movie goer and avid comic reader, it has been clear to me for a long time that there is a problem with the DC cinematic universe. Since the horrendous Batman Forever where producers insisted on veering away from the dark humour that is Tim… …more

Film Analysis

So I have had a pretty boring day at work today. Things are slow, it is raining, and everyone just seems to be a bit lethargic. Maybe they are recovering from their epic weekends. Because of this, I have been perusing the interwebs and fallen into watching film analysis videos. As a person who loves… …more

Beautifully Bland

Beautifully Bland A problem that seems prevalent in a world where the technology is advancing faster than people learning how to properly utilise it, is that you get absolutely beautiful films rich in colour, texture, and wonder that lack story, intensity, and gravitas. The films often fall flat… …more

An Argument Against Binge Watching

An Argument Against Binge Watching With the advent of easily acquired content people tend to binge on visual media. Specifically TV shows and sometimes movie franchises. People will sit for 10 or 15 hours straight watching the new season of a show… …more

Perfect End

Perfect End I am going to start by saying this is a review of Logan and there will be spoilers. This hasn’t been an issue for a long time since I have been excessively lackadaisical about posting my reviews. But since the movie just came out on Friday… …more

We’ve still got nothing in Common

We’ve still got nothing in Common A Retro Review I had never seen Breakfast At Tiffany’s until recently and I gotta say I didn’t like it. Sacrilege! I know. It is a movie that has been praised for being a… …more

Christmas in NYC

Over this past Christmas I went for a short, pleasant trip across the border to New York. Well, really, New Jersey but New York was just a train ride away. I have been to the Big Apple many times in my life as my aunt lives there and growing up it was an excuse… …more

Going Rogue

Going Rogue On a cold, dreary, Friday the 13th, the second Friday of 2017, I am sitting at work waiting. Waiting for people to finish their job so I can begin mine. I am running out of ways to look busy while everyone else around me looks to be swamped. I flip… …more

Summer in the city

Just about 2 months ago I lost my job. It was a slap in the face and left me shocked and distressed for a little while. I sat at home watching tv, movies, and writing reviews trying to ignore it. While sitting at my desk looking for new employment this is the view that… …more

A new beginning

I have tried to write this review like 5 times and things just keep going wrong. Not just with my writing but saving it to the site. Hopefully the sixth time is the charm…… I had a perfect intro the last time I tried to get this up. It was about how Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment… …more

I need a fan

Who needs sunshine and picnics when there is cinematic awesomeness to witness? Not me! On Canada day, instead of heading to a park, or going to a fair, or even a party, I headed off to enjoy the holiday in a big way. You could even say it was XXL. …more

I am the walrus

I have been a fan of Kevin Smith for many years. I first encountered his brand of fun crude story telling accidentally while perusing the shelves of a video store (remember those?) looking for something entertaining to fill an afternoon. Over the years he has stuck with his writing style but has decided to …more

Bright little piggies

This weekend marks the official beginning of summer. That means shorts, tanks, skirts and most importantly sandals. That also means I have to step up my pedicure awesomeness. Sandal weather started a few weeks ago so I have managed to do 2 new looks so far. They are both very bright graphic designs. I often……read more

Well, it’s here….

Blockbuster season! It is in full swing as we are about a month in and I have been spending some quality time at the theatre. I have also been spending some time in front of the TV watching some new-ish new-to-me flicks so I have quite a bit to go over today. …more

Stuff on TV

I have also been watching a lot of TV. Well I never stop watching TV. I am glad I was born in a time of TV cuz I don’t know how I would have functioned without it. I am still very much a classic TV watcher as I still like to watch shows when they……read more

Stuff on Screen

Ok so I did that thing again where I watched a whole lot of stuff but didn’t tell you about it. I know I don’t have to but I want to. It saves you from having to wade through all the crap that is out there and it allows me to do 2 things that……read more

Happy Tum Tum

In recent times I have found myself kind of bored with the regular eating establishments that I frequent. It is not that the food or service has diminished in any way, it is that I feel for something different, something exciting, just something new. So, I have been heading out to places that I… …more

Graphic novels

In the last little while I have been trying my best to avoid the comic book store. It just gets to be too expensive. I walk in there thinking I am here for one things, until I reach the door I am focused on my specific task. But then I open the door and I……read more
