[Spoilers for The Twilight Zone’s season finale “Blurryman” follow.] I have largely stayed away from online discourse concerning The Twilight Zone. While I normally read reviews for movies before I watch them, I wanted to go into this show relatively blind as to what other critics and viewers were saying. Today I went back through…

Cinema was perfected when the party comedy was conceived. With the right talent behind them, party comedies like Neighbors and Blockers can transcend our common understanding of art and elevate us to a higher plane of cinematic enjoyment we never thought possible before. And even bad movies like Sisters and The Hangover trilogy are watchable…

Without dating myself (I’m totally about to date myself), my childhood was a blur of Star Wars and the Disney Renaissance of the 90’s and with all of the recent Disney remakes of classic films from that period it’s given me rose tinted glasses towards basically all those movies. The 2017 remake of Beauty and…

On Tuesday, Gov. Andy Beshear followed CDC guidelines and ordered all “public-facing” businesses in the state to close. These included theaters and concert venues, basically anywhere that people congregate and don’t offer essential services. While a bummer for those of us who are considering scheduling a colonoscopy just for the social interaction, it’s a huge…
