13 Reasons Why is getting another season

Locke and Key reportedly coming to Netflix

Locke and Key is one of the darlings of the comic horror scene, for as long as I have been into comics people have always suggested that I read it because it's so well written. Unfortunately, I am poor and can't afford every book and my lib...

Timeless is currently in limbo, and it's all your fault

Time-travel and comedy, two things that go hand-in-hand like peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, or rum and coke. We've seen the popularity of films like the Back to the Future trilogy, Bill & Ted's excellence in the genre, and A...

Netflix is in the market for a gently used movie chain

Netflix is set to release 80 movies this year, and by virtue of "something has to stick," at least a few of them are bound to be noteworthy. Add their shows to that and Netflix is spending $8 billion on original content, an amount with wh...

Mindhunter Season 2 has a slew of great directors behind it

Last year's Mindhunter was a thrilling and stylish look into the life of serial killers and the people who hunt them. David Fincher's involvement was large part of that, giving each monologue and each scene appropriate weight through his st...

Review: Game Over, Man!

Die Hard doesn’t really need any sequels, but because Bruce Willis is still working, we’ll probably get at least one more anyway, in between Death Wish and Sixth Sense revivals. But, if the creators and ...

Review: Jessica Jones season 2

Fun fact: I watched all of the first season of Jessica Jones in a day. At the time, I was living in England and was so incredibly bored that I order some British pizza (it's just as disappointing as it sounds), camped out on a couch, and wa...

Review: Ravenous

Hoo boy was I hoping for something better out of this. I'll start by saying it has some gorgeous shots throughout, and the performances are largely ok. They don't make up for the general dragginess the movie has, nor it's lack believable ch...

Netflix will have 700 original movies and TV shows in 2018

My Netflix backlog is real. It's not quite as real as my gaming backlog, but with the news that Netflix will hit 700 new, original movies and TV shows this year alone it's about to get there. Of course I don't need to watch all these shows,...

The Ritual is a horror film that manages to graze a long list of standard horror tropes and still turn out a well made film that’s familiar-ish, but more effective than anything I’ve seen in a while. Netflix has plenty of horr...

Review: Fullmetal Alchemist (2017)

It seems that in recent years there has been an uptick in the amount of manga based stories getting live-action treatments. Some of them good, some not so good, some really bad. So it's no surprise that the show that was voted as the most ...

A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2 gets a second trailer

A Series of Unfortunate Events was one of my favorite book series growing up. It was morbid, dark, and had a very British sense of humor. Thus far, Netflix has been doing a bang up job adapting the series. Season 1 had plenty of twists and...

Season 2 of Jessica Jones now has its first trailer

The first trailer for the second season of Jessica Jones sure looks like its jumping off from all the strong points of the first season. It's dark, moody, full of Jessica being a bad ass, psychologically challenging, and plays up...

Review: GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters

Netflix's anime feature, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters,  is a mixture of fantasy and science fiction elements with some play at political intrigue, which makes this familiar tale somewhat fresh and enjoyable, but it doesn't ex...

Review: The End of the F**cking World

An adaptation of the 2013 graphic novel by Charles Forsman, The End of the F**king World is an early 2018 drop for Netflix aimed to cash in on the troubled teen variety of television series' success. Maybe it's done in a slightly diffe...
