It seems strange 1987's The Princess Bride works at all. It’s a story that seems to sabotage itself at every step, undercutting its own tension and drama, but it comes off as a remarkably effortless picture. But only sure hands could have pulled it off, the most important being William Goldman, who passed away…
I give you a party place to hide in, you give me GIFs. Quid Pro Quo.
A brand new Coen brothers movie, even an inferior one, would be a nice gift for NetFlix to deliver automatically to-day for its customers, but 2018's The Ballad of Buster Scrubbs happens to be the best Coen brothers movie in years. Beautifully shot and featuring a cast that is simultaneously idiosyncratic and…
This is a reasonable approximation of my basement. It would have been worse if there weren’t 300 books on my kindle. We will be moving in the next year or so and will not have room to store all my books, so I needed to get rid of them.
The Gorgon will be the Svengoolie feature this week. Hammer Films. Directed by Terence Fisher.
I’ll let you drive the Hover-DeLorean I’ll buy with them if you do! Because where that thing goes, it clearly need no roads!
In the final episode of Cowboy Bebop we suddenly find ourselves in a very long story established in a very brief space of time. There were hints to and reflections of it throughout the series but all those elements come together finally in a single piece presenting a completion in the final episode simultaneously…
Hello and welcome, all to WednesdayBookClub, everyone! My name is GeeseJuggler and I have no idea how many times I’ve used this title for book club. Let’s get started!
Because you can only see well with the heart. Of your enemy. After you ripped it out of his chest.
Stan Lee passed away yesterday. Many celebrities and artists and critics are saying things about his work, many of them fairly accurate, like how he is largely responsible for creating the more “down to Earth” superhero of Marvel in contrast to DC’s more godlike beings. It’s all been said before, really. But it’s true.
It’s amazing that someone can be told that they’re talking to is a clone and not ask the question “A clone of who?”. Welcome to the Gifted season 2 episode 7 “no Mercy” spoilerific reaction thread, where you can share your thoughts on the show as it plays out or after it’s done.
If you have ANY type of procedural, there comes a time where you just MUST include a contortionist as a villain for creepy effect. Tonight is the night for The Flash. Let’s react!
From Thor 154, July 1968. “’Tis not by dropping out — but by plunging into the maelstrom of life itself — that thou shalt find thy wisdom! There be causes to espouse!! There be battles to be won! Aye, there be time enow for thee to disavow thy heritage — yea, thou mayest drop out fore’er — once Hela herself hath come…
Let’s do this! Join the gang in a new adventure. I always am intrigued, kinda I’m awe about how many of the episode titles are a triple threat of Meta, referential to movie geeks, AND kinda dad joke humor. So let’s react!
UPDATED with official trailer.
Back for more light torture show guys. Arrow is back tonight and maybe just as disjointed yet not boring. I am really not engaging much with the plot this season, but it is not making me irrationally angry like last season. Let’s react!
I’ve been keen on anime lately and 18th century Europe. If only there were a way I could combine the two. But there is! I’ve watched three episodes now of one of the most influential shojo anime series of a all time, 1979's The Rose of Versailles (ベルサイユのばら), a show I’ve wanted to see for a long time because of its…
