It is Tuesday, October 31st, 1978. As Halloween night bounds the small town of Haddonfield with tragedy, Michael Myers lurks the empty suburban streets to find his way back to his childhood home. Despite the carved pumpkins and ghoulish costumes, nothing sends a chill down Haddonfield's spine like the news of the babysitter murders that … Continue reading ‘Halloween Kills’: A Story Of Rage, Violence and Legacy.
Three years ago, I made the decision to watch 'A Star Is Born' over 'Venom' on their opening weekend. As I sat down to watch both 'Venom' movies this year, I realize I made the right choice. Three hours I will never get back, all for the satisfaction of being in the comic-book movie loop. … Continue reading ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Is Ultimately Non-Symbiotic.
The task of introducing a phenomenon like 'Squid Game' for a review is as dreadful as the show itself.

As an … Continue reading My Hero Academia SPOILERS // Season 5: ‘My Villain Academia’ & ‘Endeavor Agency’ Arcs!
