Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne

| December 2, 2016

I’m not sure why I insist on continuing to watch every Jason Bourne movie that comes along.  Part of me hopes that one of the sequels will eventually manage to recapture the magic of the original Bourne Identity.  I had high hopes for this latest chapter in the life of Jason Bourne (Matt Damon; The […]

The IT Crowd: The Complete Series

The IT Crowd: The Complete Series

| November 11, 2016

For four seasons, The IT Crowd delivered consistently hilarious and surreal comedy for fans.  The series centers around two I.T. Professionals at a massive corporation in London: Roy (Chris O’Dowd; Bridesmaids) and Moss (Richard Ayoade; The Double).  The boys are completely content to laze around and play video games in between berating the employees of […]

Hell on Wheels: Season 5: Part 2

Hell on Wheels: Season 5: Part 2

| November 7, 2016

I’ve been fortunate over the past few years to catch some of Hell on Wheels to review for this site and with it coming to an end, and me seeing somewhat where it’s going in the end, I think it may be time to start at the beginning of the series on Netflix and just […]

The Night of The Grizzly

The Night of The Grizzly

| November 1, 2016

Recently, during a horror movie marathon, I watched 1976’s Grizzly, which is a Jaws homage about a massive killer bear terrorizing camping tourists on a mountain.  I really enjoyed the film as a monster movie, with its great moments of blood, gore, and explosions, but wasn’t sure what to expect when popping in The Night […]

Last Girl Standing

Last Girl Standing

| November 1, 2016

With Halloween coming and going this week, it was the season to dive into a bunch of horror movies, and while I tend to not seek them out, I do enjoy watching horror movies with friends.  Some can be effective and scary, while most are hilariously entertaining.  I also tend not to request horror movies […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Sequels No One Wanted

The Countdown: Top Ten Sequels No One Wanted

| October 25, 2016

This was a hard list for me.  I have pretty good instincts about what movies I’m going to like and if I don’t like the first one, I’ll avoid the sequels.  My take on this topic is that these are terrible sequels to terrible movies, so I had to think long and hard about movies […]

The Countdown:  Top Ten Serial Killer Movies

The Countdown: Top Ten Serial Killer Movies

| October 19, 2016

I actually had a hard time with this list.  I like horror, and I like psychological thrillers, and of course there are plenty of serial killer movies that fall in those genres, but I also wanted to include some variety and present a list that represents everything I like about this very specific genre.  In […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Movies Set at Sea

The Countdown: Top Ten Movies Set at Sea

| October 11, 2016

I thought it would be difficult to come up with a list of movies set mostly at sea.  A couple of obvious ones popped right into my head, but I wasn’t sure I would be able to fill out a list of 10 that I really liked.  After some research, I was able to find […]

Banshee: The Final Season

Banshee: The Final Season

| October 5, 2016

We hardly knew ye, Banshee – gone in only 4 short seasons.  I also reviewed season 3 of this series for filmmonthly having not seen the first two seasons, but found it incredibly easy to catch up on what was going on.  It was as if the creators knew no one was watching and had […]
