When filled with the terrible dread of anticipation of torture I turn to comfort. I spent months avoiding the musicals assignment. The spectre always loomed and I remained stubbornly unwilling to confront it. Romance movies being the next assignment, I must admit I am scared. I do not hate Romanc...

"I Hate Musicals" by Liam Leroux
 I Hate Musicalsby Liam LerouxIt’s embarrassing. I don’t want to hate musicals. It’s boring to hate something so many other people love. Of course it wasn’t boring to hate Twilight but that’s because Twilight is not only terrible but also presented colonialism and white supremacy as sexy and...

Posted
 I finished my viewing early this year. And unlike other years I certainly saw more films than the 31 I intended to view. I did a random horror review that I didn't count in my 31 days (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Og2-yo9wr3U&t=11s) which added 4 to the 31. Plus I ended up watch a fe...

31 Day of Horror 2020: 2nd Week
 There are an awful lot of horror movies about Halloween events turning deadly. While I was intending to watch as many of the same themed horrors I found myself dosing off when the same premise came up. It is a hard premise to avoid right now, as there are so many Halloween events gone wrong...

31 Days of Horror 2020 - Day 1
 While 2020 may have everyone re-evaluating their Halloween traditions, one activity that will remain the same is the ability to enjoy a horror film. And like years past, I like to challenge myself to watch 31 horror films I have never seen before in 31 days. Why? Well, because nothing makes...

Sci-fi September 2020 - Complete

 Boy this month is cruising by quickly. Perhaps that might be caused by the quality of science fictions films I have been taking in this year. Usually by week three I am anxious for the month to be done. But this time around it feels like it is going to pass by too quickly (strange feeling f...
