Vikings (2013-2020)

The History Channel’s flagship series Vikings aired its last episode in December. And though this celebrated work is finally in the history books, its legacy will live on. It isn’t your stereotypical “this is one of the best shows ever” series. It isn’t trying to be anything other than itself. And that’s okay. Vikings is, […]

MIDNIGHT MASS

When it comes to masterpieces of modern horror, Mike Flanagan’s track record is like no other.

Moreish Mare of Easttown Proves You Can Have Too Much Of A Good Thing

Rating: 7 out of 10. Well, this show has been all the rave recently, and in my typical fashion, I went into this one hoping that I’d be able to go against the tide and rip Mare of Easttown to pieces. Unfortunately, I won’t be doing that, but it’s not exactly a laudation either… […]

How Mindhunter Makes Conversation More Frightening Than Blood

Rating: 8.5 out of 10. I know I’ve been on a bit of a ’70s run recently, with the likes of The Long Goodbye, The French Connection, The Parallax View and Marathon Man, so I thought this would be a nice change of gear with recent Netflix series Mindhunter. But, ah ha! I’ve fooled […]

Dark Woods (Das Geheimnis des Totenwaldes) 2020

“Dark Woods” is a German police procedural that is less about tracking down a serial killer than about the ripple effects of random, senseless violence and the pain of not-knowing what’s happened to a loved one who simply vanishes. There’s mystery in this account of a 30 year-long German case that only dogged persistence by […]

Just so you know where I’m coming from, Captain America has always been my favorite Marvel superhero and not just during his run in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Long before Marvel Studios started raking in billions of dollars at the box office, I was enthusiastically following Captain America’s comic book adventures, both as the head […]
