After today’s movie, I am glad that I’m done playing Netflix Roulette for the week… I feel like I’ve been on a steep downward trajectory since Pontypool and I shudder … Continue reading Netflix Roulette: The Shrine
Netflix Roulette: Animal
After the joy of writing up Pontypool yesterday, I was reluctant to take another spin of the wheel. I know that may seem weird since my viewing of Pontypool was … Continue reading Netflix Roulette: Animal
Netflix Roulette: Pontypool

In “Theaters” Now: The Gallows
As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I had plans to see The Gallows. Unfortunately, that meant delaying my write-up of Pontypool, but I was going to see a … Continue reading In “Theaters” Now: The Gallows
Trailer: Ash vs. Evil Dead
I watched Pontypool this afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I will not get a chance to write up my thoughts until tomorrow… I have a 5pm showing of The Gallows … Continue reading Trailer: Ash vs. Evil Dead
Random Thoughts: A Possible Change (or Changes… Really an Addition (or Additions)) to Our Regularly Scheduled Program
This is going to be a short one, but I wanted to get your opinion on a few changes I’m thinking of making. To be fair, they aren’t really changes… more like additions. Specifically, I’m thinking of adding a couple new categories of postings. While I love playing Netflix Roulette, at times, it can feel a bit soul-sucking (especially when I hit a bad patch of movies). I also enjoy revisiting classic horror movies… at the same time, though, the summer is finite and I would rather spend more of my time discovering new stuff. In reality, I often use the Classics Revisited as a way to cleanse my palate after a particularly bad movie. So, in order to achieve both ends: watching new content and being able to wash the bad taste out of my mouth, I am considering adding two new categories to the blog:
- Reader Recommendation (or something more cleaver once I’ve had time to think about it) – This would be exactly what it sounds like… you recommend something and if I haven’t seen it, I’ll watch it and write up my thoughts. I’ve already gotten a couple of recommendation (As Below so Above and Pontypool), but this category will only work if you keep sending more my way. They can be from any time-period, any country, anything… as long as I haven’t seen it and I can find it (by whatever means) I’ll watch it and give my honest thoughts on the film
- Televised Horror (also working on a better title) – We are in a new golden age of television and there are quite a few horror series on right now. I’m already caught up with The Walking Dead and American Horror Story, but there are a few other current options like the Scream reboot on MTV (to be honest, I’m not psyched about having to watch a show on MTV) as well as Eli Roth’s Hemlock Grove which is on Netflix. That may be a good option since it looks like we may never see his Green Inferno It might be fun to watch one or two episode of this during the week and write up my thoughts episode-by-episode. Thoughts?
Again, I’d love to hear your feedback.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a weekly roundup.
