Review: The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

'The Magic School Bus Rides Again' has a weak-ass trailer now

Along with most of my fellow friends and classmates, I grew up in the culture of the late 90's. It was a marvelous time filled with Rollerblades, Pizza, and Nintendo; almost everything a kid needs to have a good time. Almost. Kids are natur...

Review: The Defenders (Season 1)

When the Marvel Cinematic Universe first came to Netflix it seemed like such a great idea. Four individual series of shows focused on more grounded heroes eventually coming together in a small scale, Avengers-like fashion. But the exci...

Review: Death Note

Netflix teases Stranger Things 2 with poster & release date

Netflix's Twitter account teased the return of the smash hit Stranger Things with a vintage-y one sheet. Posters, like all things Stranger Things, are retro AF. Do kids even tack these things to walls these days, or do they just tape up the...

BoJack Horseman returns September 8th

The last season of BoJack Horseman was by far the best yet. Each season has been good, but BoJack is the kind of show that only gets better as its concepts are explored further, and Season 3 was quite an achievement for this funny, yet depr...
