Hush (2016)

Hush, an independent home invasion thriller that embraces the old tropes and adds a few new intriguing dynamics. Specifically: our protagonist is deaf and mute.

The Hallow (2015)

A supernatural thriller about a family moving to a new home in darkly wooded Northern Island. Not to be confused with The Hollow (2015).

I finally saw The Force Awakens.

I went from not caring, to patient curiosity after hearing good reviews, to almost seeing it in the theatre, to giving up again and waiting until Blu Ray after being disappointed by The Witch (I’ll save that for another post). And now I want to go back and find a place that is screening it…

Back to the Grind.

Whoah. I am not good at this blogging thing. I am effing rusty. I’ve lost writer-voice a little bit, and it’s going to take some time to get myself back into that mental space where I can create mental outlines of posts before I start typing, rather than write a whole epic poem that uses…

Frozen

Sign in to any social network over the past few months and you’re sure to find *someone* still talking about Frozen, posting a video of a girl singing “Let It Go”, or a clip of John Travolta messing up Adele Dazeem’s name. Ms. Dazeem, your voice is beautiful, I have no idea how he could’ve…

Movie Update – Shadowhunters, Dystopias, and Norse Gods.

or… three subtitled movies with colons in them that are also based on books. Some rather minor spoilers follow. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Thor: The Dark World. I saw them all within the past week and a half, and honestly only bits and pieces of them left…

February 21st Update

Another bulk update about tv/movies I’ve seen, games I’ve played, etc. Movies Riddick What do I say about this movie? It doesn’t really hold a candle to other things I’ve seen recently, it definitely feels a bit stunted in a few places, but I still liked it. The biggest flaw is its pacing. It doesn’t…

iamamiwhoami as Aquarius

I was laying in bed the other night, iamamiwhoami’s music swirling around in my head like a music box wound to play for days, and I was wondering to myself when the heck the next video was going to come out. Granted, this project has been going on for years now, so I’m accustomed to…

February 7th Update:

Just a quick update to keep things rolling here on the blog. I consume a lot of media and information on a weekly basis, and it’s really hard to keep up. And between being sick on and off for a week, miserable winter weather, and general seasonal-affective-disorder-type symptoms, it’s been a whirlwind. If by whirlwind…

Another Catch-up Post: Games and Movies.

I will completely admit to being a little out-of-sorts lately. It’s been a few months worth of being pulled in many directions, I’m grumpier than usual, work projects keep dragging on with revisions and edits, and weekends fly by with the zeal of a million locusts, devouring all of my energy and not really preparing…

IMDb’s Top 250.

The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) keeps a running list of the top 250 movies of all time, based on rating. It changes as movies are released and judged, but in general a lot of the films stay on the list throughout time. Some surprise me, because I always feel like there are “better” movies out…
