Hold the door, La Llorona: Steve Yzerman is back!

April 23, 2019

On the latest Podcass, how long should you be expected to hold a door open for someone? Also, a review of The Curse of La Llorona. And it's rough being a Detroit sports fan right now, but Steve Yzerman returning to the Red Wings provides some hope.

On the latest Podcass, a review of Hellboy, which is just killing time at the movies until Avengers: Endgame is unleashed upon pop culture. But before that, I need to cool out a little bit. I've been wound way too tight lately, and maybe that's what got me sick.

Waiting Room

Waiting Room

March 31, 2019

The rhythm of the past week was thrown out of whack by an unexpected development. My baby niece hasn't been feeling well and showed symptoms that prompted a trip to the emergency room. And that meant an hours-long wait in the ER. No worries. My niece is fine. My sister, mother and I are a bit sleep-deprived, but we're fine. But the waiting. And the waiting room...

Us review

Us review

March 29, 2019

Us is the movie sensation sweeping the nation. Jordan Peele is considered by many fans and critics to be the new master of horror, and his second film does nothing to dispute that. Some might not like Us as much as Get Out, but there's a whole lot to think about and interpret long after you've seen the film. And the imagery could haunt you for a while. Find somebody to talk to about this movie! 

It’s a teaser!
