Spike and His Sense of Self

Hello, dear readers. Before I had this site, I used to write all of my opinions and think pieces on LiveJournal.  In many ways, it’s what has given me my start.  Even more than that, was the Buffy fandom.  Stumbled across this old thing I wrote about my most favorite character of all time: Spike.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” Review

You know, when my brother asked me if I was going to see this film, long before it came out, I honestly wasn’t excited about it.  I thought, “Gee, yet another Peter Parker…seriously, it’s too soon and I don’t care.”  But I’m thrilled to say I was so wrong.  Like, I, a grown woman, would […]

How Buffy The Vampire Slayer Has Changed My Life

My first experience with Buffy was through the film, starring Kristy Swanson.  I was entertained; I was inspired.  I think people can say what they want about the film, but the reality is, it laid the foundation for the show.  Buffy the Vampire Slayer was among one of the first reboots of that decade.  When the […]

Why THE WALKING DEAD Is More Than Just A TV Show

The Walking Dead has somehow simultaneously become both water cooler talk and cult classic.  It’s in a strange middle ground, as it has a powerful group of dedicated fans that are neither small, nor quiet.  The Walking Dead is a genre show, but is also incredibly mainstream, with episodes having as many as 17M viewers.

15 Christmas Films For Geeks

The holidays are here, and there’s no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than watching a holiday film or two.  We all know the usual suspects — It’s a Wonderful Life, A Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story Home Alone — but here’s an alternate list [in no particular order]: Die Hard First let […]
