Uncut Gems

I am an Adam Sandler apologist. This is one of my less popular film-related opinions. After all, the man is responsible for Click, Grown Ups and worst of all, Jack and Jill.

The summer after my junior year of high school, I was in between TV shows and in search of a mindless comedy to pass the time while I searched for a serious drama to binge-watch.

Whilst die hard Breaking Bad fans […]

Marianne

It is now October, which means it is basically Halloween. As a film and TV addict, that means that one of my first Google searches of the month was “new horror on Netflix.” I was not prepared for that search to direct me to one of the most terrifying shows I’ve ever had the pleasure […]
