Movies I Watch: Over and over.

I’ve always found it hard whenever someone asked me what my favorite movie is so I’ve broken it down to four categories. The first one that I will write about today are the movies that I could (and do) watch over and over without tiring of them. If I can’t decide on a movie to watch, one of these will most definitely come on.

Fair warning: I would mention “my boyfriend and I” a few times in this post because we almost always watch these movies together.Read More »

The Magnus Archives: Season 1 Review

This review may contain spoilers. From the Rusty Quill website:

“Make your statement, face your fear.”

The Magnus Archives is a weekly horror fiction anthology podcast examining what lurks in the archives of The Magnus Institute, an organisation dedicated to researching the esoteric and the weird. Join the new Head Archivist, Jonathan Sims, as he attempts to bring a seemingly neglected collection of supernatural statements up to date, converting them to audio and supplementing them with follow-up work from his small but dedicated team.

Individually, they are unsettling. Together they begin to form a picture that is truly horrifying because as he looks into the depths of the archives, something starts to look back…

I’ve really been into audio drama podcasts the last few months. I first got introduced to it a few years ago with Welcome to Nightvale. I wasn’t able to keep up with it once I lost my iPod Touch, so I didn’t bother to catch up when I got a new phone. Wanting to listen to something similar, I found out about We’re Alive, Tanis, and The Black Tapes. The last two were relatively new so I easily was able to binge both in a couple of weeks. I loved the format as well as the stories. We’re Alive was a lot longer though, I grew tired of the story as a whole so I abandoned it. Tanis and The Black Tapes are well made but I don’t like them as much as The Magnus Archives.

I think I discovered this podcast last month, in the audio drama subreddit. Season 2 was just starting and the reviews were really good. I was hooked (heh) right from the first episode.

Marvel’s Iron Fist: Season 1 Review.

This review may contain spoilers. From the Netflix synopsis:

Danny Rand resurfaces 15 years after being presumed dead. Now, with the power of the Iron Fist, he seeks to reclaim his past and fulfill his destiny.

The early reviews for this show were a mess. Critics seemed eager to tear down this show and racism controversies were going around SJW circlejerks online. I will not get into that for I am not a reader of the comics and I do not get why some people are insisting Danny Rand be Asian.

While I do pay attention to reviews, they do not dictate my decisions to watch a certain show or not. I have been a fan of the Marvel Netflix shows, so I was for sure watching the last intro installment of the Defenders. So let’s just get into it.Read More »

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: Season 1 Review

This review may contain spoilers. From the Netflix synopsis:

Eccentric amateur sleuth Dirk and his grudging assistant Todd make their way haphazardly through a peculiarly tangled, dangerous supernatural mystery.

It’s all connected.

This show has been showing up on my Netflix homepage for a while now and my eye has been drawn to it every time because of the bright yellow jacket and Elijah Wood. I haven’t read the source material, and I haven’t consumed any other adaptation. I also decided against reading anything online about the show and just went in with the synopsis and the (high) rating it had. I was thinking maybe this show will be a good enough time while I wait for Iron Fist to come out.

Oh boy, I was in for a surprise.
