I Still Can’t Believe This is the Pushing Daisies Guy – Hannibal (show)

A good horror show is rare to find. Films are common, but something about the transition in medium from a short to a long form makes it difficult to elicit that same rush of dread and fright. Which is a pity, because the longer nature of television shows offers a lot that is difficult to… Continue reading I Still Can’t Believe This is the Pushing Daisies Guy – Hannibal (show)

The Path Beyond the House – Pet Sematary

I need a recalibration because I haven't been keeping up with these reviews as much as I'd like. Whenever I need a recalibration, I go back to the thing that brings me comfort: the horror genre. I like spoopy stuff. So today, let's explore the first Stephen King book I ever read, which will now… Continue reading The Path Beyond the House – Pet Sematary

It’s All Over Now – Bojack Horseman, Season Six

The first few episodes of this, the final season of beloved cartoon Bojack Horseman, aired late last year. I’ve waited to cover the series until now mainly because I wanted to review the entire season at once and the second half of the season didn't come out until later. However, I would be lying if… Continue reading It’s All Over Now – Bojack Horseman, Season Six

2-D Psychonauts? YES, PLEASE! – Stick it to the Man!

So there's this game I like, Psychonauts. Maybe you've heard me gush about it before? Well, I'm always on the lookout for anything remotely similar, so naturally I've dabbled with a few games, films, and the like with similar art styles or premises or themes. Seriously, just look at the number of things I've compared… Continue reading 2-D Psychonauts? YES, PLEASE! – Stick it to the Man!

Into the Smoke – The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

I sometimes find it curious that we group video games together despite many genres having completely different appeal. Sports games rarely overlap with platformers which rarely overlap with simulations which rarely overlap with strategy games. Even within genres, you can often find games that are hardly connected to each other by anything but one mechanic… Continue reading Into the Smoke – The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
