12 Monkeys Series Pilot Review by Chloe James

I’ve noticed a definite trend in the thought process of television execs for the past few years.  “What was an awesome/thought provoking film that was popular in the 1990s? Great, lets make a new series about that!” Those who know me well may predict a distinct attitude of cynicism regarding this subject.  After all, no …

BOOKS FROM THE PAST: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer Review by Bekah Stepanian

(Spoilers) (also….see what I did there with the title?) I know that The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is an older release (published in 2011), but I figured the series is popular enough that I’d give it a try.  There seems to be mixed feelings on this book coming from a lot of people so I …

Predestination: a complex theology we all ponder at some time in our lives, only to see that by accepting it as the truth, there is no turning back for anything WE or anyone else will do as life goes on. However, by rejecting this as the truth, do we really change its existence if it …

The Imitation Game Review by Chloe James

All too often, the moment I suspect a film of being formulaic, I immediately lose interest.  After all, do we not spend our precious time seeing new films for the purpose of experiencing something we have not before? My prejudice of the predictable was shattered upon seeing The Imitation Game as it delivered a heartfelt, …

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Review by Chloe James

I have to admit, I have a huge place in my heart for the third film of any movie trilogy. There is just something so satisfying to me about the promise of ending a story (whether happy or sad) that I spent two previous films engrossing myself into. Empire Strikes Back may have been critically the “best” …

Over the Garden Wall Review by Chloe James

The air has gotten cold and I, in turn, have caught one. True to the title of my blog, in my time of pathetic childlike weaknesses, I will always turn to my favorite childhood cartoons for comfort.  But alas, I have a sacred duty too keep the public informed about new developments in the world …

Snow Like Ashes Review by Bekah Stepanian

When there are only 8 free survivors living after their nation was destroyed, I don’t think it matters that an orphan and the supposed future king are in love.  I mean, honestly, who is to forbid it because there positions in society are too far socially?  There are 6 people left with any say in …

Babadooke Review: The Horror Within our Own Lives by David Tuck

Be prepared to think when watching the Babadook. If you’re like me and go into the film with a mind tuned specifically for horror, you will be one of the droves to miss the beauty of this movie and in turn award it a negative review. Although, it is under the genre, rookie director Jennifer …
