south park 22 2 (1)

Wow, an episode revolving around the Catholic Church and its members that doesn’t touch upon Christianity or God for that matter? I feel like I’ve stumbled into a different timeline.

The Meg review – we all live in a yellow submarine!

the meg

The ocean is a wondrous place, is it not? But alongside that, comes a fleeting feeling of fear. The fear of the unknown is a common sentiment people have regarding the big blue sea; in fact, it’s been noted somewhere that over 80% of the world’s oceans have been left unexplored. Various features that trigger our hydrophobia tend to include: nasty looking fishes, whales, rapey dolphins, the notion of being trapped in a cavern for hours on end, Cthulu, and of course, sharks. And its kind of obvious why we’d be wary of these pointy finned, sharp toothed beasts, considering how tenacious they become when their prey is in their sights. If you’ve found yourself surrounding by these fellas and you’re not a professional swimmer of some sorts, then you’ve signed your death warrant. There’s a reason why Jaws is such an iconic movie to this day; it serves as a reminder for how dangerous the open waters are. Continue reading “The Meg review – we all live in a yellow submarine!”

Oh, tis a dark time we live in. But alas, it is to be expected. Honestly, it’s so dark that my wrists have appeared to have slit itself. Anyways, before I pass out from extreme blood loss (seriously its flowing from my arm like a waterfall), I must preach to you all about a sinister force within our wake.

Sorry to Bother You review – who knew telemarketing could be so insane

sorry to bother you

Sometimes, I wonder what movies were even made for. Were they made solely as a representation of reality, or for people’s pleasure, or a combination of both? Anyways, I was kind of wondering what kind of coke director Boots Riley was snorting when he crafted this “masterpiece” of his. I mean for petes sake, the fella was in charge of making music before tackling this feature length extravaganza.

Millennialism, loneliness, and social media in ‘Ingrid Goes West’

82e66249349517.58efe540e466c

Social media is an unprecedented vehicle for people to connect with one another from across the globe. Fact of the matter is, its advent has led to the insurgence of some interesting phenomena. From people acting under the guise of trolls, to literal edgelords threatening to slit their own wrists, the internet has become a safe haven for people to vent out their frustrations under the protection of anonymity. The idea that anonymity is a thing on these platforms, only makes matters worse, as people from all sorts of backgrounds hide themselves behind an avatar (some of which would include an anime character of some sort) to plot their next move, while disguising their identity in the heat of battle.
