Big Mouth Season 2

This series continues to be one of the smartest and most entertaining sexual education comedy animated series I’ve ever seen. If you’ve ever gone through puberty, you’ll appreciate about 90% of the jokes here, the other 10% are likely gender dependent or orientation dependent that may strike a stronger cord for you than they did for me.

Secrets, and spells, and talking koalas—CURSE WORDS is a gonzo dark fantasy from CHARLES SOULE (Daredevil, Letter 44, Star Wars) and RYAN BROWNE (GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS). Image Comics has this...

The Endless

As kids, they escaped a UFO death cult. Now, two adult brothers seek answers after an old videotape surfaces and brings them back to where they began. Not all Lovecraftian movies rise to this level, the list is pretty short of end of days movies that I would suggest that have a taste of Cthulhu in them. This is one of them. Mind breakingly horrifying at times and well worth your time if you want to get spooked. It might have helped that I was watching this in a city with no power, my windows open in a pitch black...

Train to Busan

While a zombie virus breaks out in South Korea, passengers struggle to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan. This movie has been on my watchlist for about as long as it’s been on Netflix, but I’ve never found the time to sit down and watch it, primarily due to the subtitles. Sure it looks like a fun movie, but it’s rare that I’m able to focus 100% of my attention on the screen to catch every word that goes up, but this last weekend Hurrican Michael rolled through and knocked out power for nearly everyone in my city,...

My Name Is Bruce

Mistaken for his character Ash from the ‘Evil Dead’ trilogy, Bruce Campbell is forced to fight a real monster in a small Oregon town. Bruce Campbell has always seemed like a boorish delight, I’ve never met him personally, but I feel like he’d be a hoot to hang out, have some drinks, and fight the undead with. All his roles have a pretty standard feel to them and this film is no different, so if you like him, this is a great movie to check out.

Snow Crash

One of Time’s 100 best English-language novels • A mind-altering romp through a future America so bizarre, so outrageous, you’ll recognize it immediately. Only once in a great while does a writer come along who defies comparison—a writer so original he redefines the way we look at the world. Neal Stephenson is such a writer and Snow Crash is such a novel, weaving virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility to bring us the gigathriller of the information age. In reality, Hiro Protagonist delivers pizza for Uncle Enzo’s CosoNostra Pizza Inc., but...

While you wait for your morning coffee to brew, for the bus, the train, or a plane to arrive, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry...

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992 movie)

Air-headed high school cheerleader Buffy reluctantly accepts her destiny – to become her generation’s warrior in the never-ending war against vampires! Campy fun, with Donald Sutherland, Paul Reubens. I’m not sure how I was able to get through the entire TV series without watching the movie. I was not expecting this level of camp, nor the low budget feel to the effects and sets, though I guess I shouldn’t be surprised considering the premise. The TV show was better.

Eighth Grade

Thirteen-year-old Kayla endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the last week of middle school-the end of her thus far disastrous eighth grade year-before she begins high school. This was an exercise in anxiety and self loathing that was great to experience once, but man I did not know what kind of film I was getting myself into. Was it going to have a sudden twist that would ruin it? It’s directed by that one guy that does a stand up routine that’s completely off the walls in every good way, so maybe...
