    Sunday Scaries: Gabriel, or What Makes a Great Movie Monster

    Note: Spoilers abound for a movie you definitely should have watched by now. I have made no secret over the past week how much I loved Malignant, and how Warner Bros was stupid/insane/wonderful enough to actually spend real money on producing it. I love that James Wan could have made anything he wanted to after […] More

    Emmy Analysis: Outstanding Comedy Series

    So here’s the thing – I am either the ideal columnist to analyze this category or the absolute worst possible Awards Radar writer to tackle it. Because I have not watched a single episode of any of the eight nominees. At all. For any season, let alone the ones specifically nominated here. Despite paying for […] More

    Interview: Michael Mohan Discusses the Naughty Vision of ‘The Voyeurs’

I’m leading the charge!” laughs Michael Mohan, a screenwriter and filmmaker known for the Netflix high school sitcom Everything Sucks! and the romantic dramedy Save the Date, whose latest film, The Voyeurs, is available for Amazon Prime subscribers right now.

    Where Have All the Labor Movies Gone?

    Happy Labor Day, everyone! Looks like Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (which weirdly wants us to care about its boring titular character with a Great Destiny™ more than his father/nemesis with the genuinely compelling backstory and agency over the plot, but whatever) is going to break the “Labor Day Box Office Curse,” […] More

    TV Review: ‘Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror’ Is More of an Admirably Comprehensive Document than a Revelatory One

    Exactly one week ago today, the last U.S. soldier departed on the last U.S. aircraft from Kabul at 11:59 P.M., ending the longest war in American history. Two days later, Netflix released Brian Knappenberger’s follow-up to his harrowing docuseries The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez with what is very clearly intended to be the definitive chronicle […] More

    On the Radar… (September Edition)

    Okay, another big change to this series because now that we’re at the heat of the awards season, when the heavy hitters start to come and make their play for serious Oscar attention, I cannot handle two months apiece for what will become a mammoth telescope into the future over the rest of the year. […] More

    On the Radar… (Late Summer Edition)

    Hmm…so the math on this was a little off. I traditionally do two months per “preview” article, but if I include August in the “Fall Edition” of this then I have to consider October part of the “Winter Edition” and then I have to figure out how to fit three months into that. I could […] More

    Recommendations for Juneteenth that Show How Hollywood Sees Race in America

    Juneteenth: The Day Racism Ended Forever Happy Juneteenth, everyone! Now it’s officially a federal holiday, which is good because, as our public education system is determined to teach the next generation, that was the day that there was no more racism ever in America. Unfortunately, outside agitators want to make us white people feel bad […] More

    Sunday Scaries: The Grift That Couldn’t Be ‘Conjured’

    Note: This essay contains story details for The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It that may be considered “spoilers.” “The Devil is an optimist if he thinks he can make people worse than they are.” – Karl Kraus The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is not a good movie. Which, if you […] More
