Arrow: The Complete Second Season

| September 15, 2014 | 0 Comments

The CW had their fair share of skeptics when they announced that beloved comic book figure, The Green Arrow, would be heading to the small screen, when Arrow was announced several years ago. I’ll admit to being one of them. However, Arrow, now entering its third season, has done more to prove skeptics wrong and delight new fans in […]

NBC’s Rosemary’s Baby

NBC’s Rosemary’s Baby

| August 19, 2014 | 0 Comments

It should be clear from the beginning that NBC’s Rosemary’s Baby isn’t an attempt to remake Roman Polanski’s seminal 1968 film, but rather, to bring both productions’ source material, Ira Levin’s novel of the same name, into the 21st century. Taking that into account, Rosemary’s Baby is complicated, as the temptation to compare the novel, […]

Hatchet III

| August 5, 2013 | 0 Comments

The Hatchet franchise is one steeped in notoriety. Adam Green’s homage to 80s horror first made waves on the horror scene with the first installment in 2006, but didn’t receive much fanfare except within the horror community itself. Its sequel received its fair share of publicity in 2010, when AMC famously agreed to distribute the […]

Joshua Tree, 1951: A Portrait of James Dean

| June 8, 2013 | 0 Comments

Few have captured the hearts and minds of audiences like James Dean. Misunderstood and aloof, he has captivated the counter culture of the 1950s with his stunning performances in only three motion pictures. It is no surprise that James Dean, who died at age 24, continues to be a source of fascination for so many, […]

True Blood: Season 5

| June 4, 2013 | 0 Comments

When True Blood first hit the airwaves all those years back, the show had promise. Along with all of the typical bloodsucking fare, this show had an age: vampires were out. It always had the potential to be a biting commentary (pun absolutely intended) on the struggle for equal rights within the gay community. Where […]

Come Undone

Come Undone

| May 21, 2013 | 0 Comments

First love is a well-worn topic in the movies. Your average gay film is filled with stilted dialogue, gorgeous but otherwise talentless actors, and an all-too tidy conclusion where either one of the lovers dies or the two live happily ever after. It was with some reservations that I approached Come Undone. The box art […]

Deadball is- well, maybe that’s the best place to start. Deadball simply is. Even days after watching the movie, the fact that Deadball exists is nothing short of amazing. Not because the movie itself is shocking, but because I’m still trying to figure out… why? I mean, I know a blame lot of swill I […]

People have an odd way of catching you offguard. Sometimes the most terrifying onscreen entities can prove to be the nicest people you’ve had a chance to talk to. Such is the case with breakout horror star, Ashley Bell, who audiences may recognize from the 2010 “little indie horror film that could” The Last Exorcism. […]
