A.P. Bio

A.P. Bio: Seasons 1 & 2

Things are getting desperate. In the time of COVID I'm reaching for canceled NBC sitcoms like A.P. Bio so I don't have to watch another series about child murder, rape or...
Castle Rock

Castle Rock: Seasons 1 & 2

It's as if I've gone out of my way to watch every single Stephen King thing ever broadcast. Even the weirdo extended Kingverse things like Castle Rock. Weird because the...
The Morning Show

The Morning Show: Season 1

This show — boringly named The Morning Show — is inarguably the flagship franchise of the fledgling Apple TV+ service. And it's a big-ass swing. You literally take the...
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

The Keanussance is real. Ok, it's not real, real, but a guy who was once an acting school punchline has come through the other side as a bonafide action star. Or, more...
Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems

It seems Hollywood is always looking for a return to some time in its past that they consider the golden age. For some I'm sure that involves male/female road movies with...
Little Women

Little Women

I am just killing it with these year-old movies! Movies based on 152-year-old books. I'm honestly not sure why I wanted to see this to begin with. It is definitely not...
Legion Season 3

Legion: Season 3

There has truly never been a TV series like Legion. A giant mind-fuck, acid trip of a show that seems to create the rules on a minute-by-minute basis. Completely unknowable...
Parasite

Parasite

Yes, I am the last person on Earth to see Parasite. And I've decided that's okay. It's almost a challenge these days to avoid spoilers. It's not just like the old days...
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

What's better than watching a semi-violent Dwayne Johnson movie with children when stuck home during a global pandemic? A movie loosely connected to a very successful...
Jumanji the Next Level

Jumanji: The Next Level

This is what happens when you let the kids pick the movie. It's like letting the kids name the pets. That's why there are so many cats out there named Kitty and Fluffy...
Unbelievable

Unbelievable

I had heard a lot of noise about Unbelievable before dialing it up on the Netflix machine. Most of it talked about its unflinching look at sexual assault and praised it...
Glass

Glass

God only knows what possessed me to want to finish this Shymalan trilogy. I alone seemed to like Unbreakable back in the day. And then finally got around to seeing the...
Bombshell

Bombshell

I honestly had no interest in seeing this movie. And after seeing it I'm sticking to my initial resistance. First, you know they're going to try to make me care about...
Ford v Ferrari

Ford v Ferrari

There are movies where the moviemaking overcomes the movie itself. In other words, the script or narrative may be lacking, but the sheer spectacle of the thing makes it...
Knives Out

Knives Out

I recall the first time I saw a trailer for Knives Out. And I recall that I was excited as hell to see it. Never mind the fact it looked like a 2019 update of the movie...
Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Ok, I've hit rock bottom. No, seriously, this is me pretty much giving up. Hipster Jr. Jr. didn't even have to lead me into the abyss. I asked her if she wanted to watch...
