I’ve mentioned in previous reviews of kids shows that my love for Madman is deeply rooted in the release of my favourite childhood shows (Samurai Pizza Cats, Sailor Moon, Johnny Bravo etc).

Usually when I review movies for this site, I try not to spoil them. Unfortunately, I’ll have to break with that tradition here. Flowers creeped me out for real, and not in a good way. However, I need to unpack the end of the movie a bit before I canRead More →

I’m not a fan of the term “the Golden Age of Television”. Whatever this so called great period of television was must well and truly be over because every new “hit show” I watch is boring the heck out of me. One genre that never fails to deliver though are theRead More →

For those of you who haven’t a clue who or what Clarence is check out my  volume one review. Clarence is a Cartoon Network show that is a neat throw back to 90s cartoons  such asHey Arthur, Ed Edd n Eddy, Rugrats etc. It’s a little less hip and more littleRead More →

Tim Ritter’s Killing Spree is a product of the mid 80s to early 90s splatter boom where anyone who owned a 16MM or a shitty video camera was trying to get in on the action by making a no-budget homemade horror flick. These films were usually of the “so-bad-it’s good” variety, theRead More →

Having not seen any wrestling since the mid-80s-90s where I grew up watching the classic WWF Superstars, I was quite curious to see how this current generation of wrestling is.
