Written by Jason McDonald, March 25, 2018
So i’ll be straight with you here.

Written by Jason McDonald, February 4, 2018

Written by Jason McDonald, December 31, 2017
This year was filled with plenty of highs when it came to the quality of films put out, but with so many peaks there are bound to be plenty of valleys. It’d be easy to pick out movies that are just plain bad, those come out all the time, so instead I opted to pick

Written by Jason McDonald, December 14, 2017
Last week, during the Video Game Awards, they showed a rather lengthy trailer for “Death Stranding” the new video game from Hideo Kojima featuring Norman Reedus (Walking Dead) and Guillermo Del Toro.  While I’m cautiously excited for that game, it got me thinking about the now dead “Silent Hills” game that had lit the world

Where Have the Horror Cartoons Gone?
Written by Chris Savage, January 22, 2017
I think as time winds on, we often get a little nostalgic from time to time. For me though, it doesn’t take much to trigger a fond memory of days gone by, you’d think I’d have a case of those “Member berries” from South Park lying around the amount I procrastinate about the good ol’ days.

Written by Jason McDonald, September 18, 2016
Let me preface this by saying that I don’t think box office results are indicative of movie quality. Otherwise the last few “Transformer” films would have been damn near masterpieces in cinema.  However, something happened at the box office this weekend that I think is worth talking about.
