Look, we’re in a pretty rough situation right now. There’s a mysterious and lethal virus hitting the entire world, and by all accounts, weren’t prepared for it. A lot of you are probably like me, trapped at home with very little to do and a quickly dwindling supply of money and basic necessities. But just…

Hey Funkhouser fans, it’s me, the guy who wrote that “Stranger Things” story you probably hated. (Though I wouldn’t really know. I don’t read the comments, because I’m a coward. Chris just told me they were rough.) So anyway, I’ve returned from a school/internship related exile to talk about someone special. A person of eccentric genius and…

My favorite show is now one of the longest running sitcoms in television history. It was around 2 in the morning. I was a 14 year old insomniac in the midst of a freak out about having to get up at 6 the next morning for school. Flipping through the channels, I landed on FX.…

My dear friend and fellow Funkhouser writer Adrian Bryant has always mused that there are two sides to Stephen King. There’s Spooky King, the one everyone knows. He writes things like the criminally underrated ‘Salems Lot, Pet Semetary, and The Stand. Then there’s the other, arguably better, side of the writer. Sentimental King. 11/22/63, Rita…

In this day and age, it’s not often that we get a big budget action film that doesn’t include a superhero. Thankfully, films like John Wick and The Equalizer have gained a healthy enough of an audience to warrant sequels. And while these gritty and smaller films scratch a certain itch in the most satisfying…

This isn’t the first time I’ve ever reviewed a property with ties to Garth Ennis. He’s an extremely polarizing writer; known for filling his stories to the brim with the most graphic of violence, darkest of humor, and snarkiest of dialogue. To call him the Tarantino of the Comics Industry wouldn’t be too far off.…

My first writing job was as an Opinion Editor at a college newspaper. In the semester I ran the Opinion page at the Eastern Progress, I spat out a lot of stories. Some I’m proud of. Others not so much. The one hallmark of all of my stories at the Progress was that I tried…

  May of 2019 saw HBO end two of it’s most famous shows. One of those endings was to the inescapable and ever infuriating Game of Thrones. To say that fan reaction to GoT’s conclusion was mixed would not only be an understatement, but an incredibly charitable one at that. While I personally feel that…

When this decade began, American action films were in a dark place. The superhero had already cemented his iron clad grip on the box office by 2010, so the days of the MCU and its many imitators were already coming out of the depths to deliver clean, family and CGI heavy action fare. The Fast…

  Spoilers Follow When 12 year old me first picked up my dad’s dog eared copy of A Game of Thrones, the first novel in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, I assumed that the story was all leading up to the Ice and Fire bit. After all, the prologue of…
