Over the past couple months I’ve been working my way through all seven seasons of Childrens Hospital (2008-2016), which began as a short-form web-series spoofing serious medical dramas, before evolving into an Emmy-award-winning TV show (via Adult Swim) and setting … Continue reading

“Old-School Pseudo-European Gangster-Style Slumber Party”

James Roday’s Halloween-themed comedy-horror flick Gravy (2015) epitomises the motto “Too Ugly To Live – Too Weird To Die”… and I mean that in the nicest possible way. An adorable indie quirk-fest ambushed by a full-blooded cannibal massacre, it would be impossible … Continue reading

“Hugs Are For Winners”

Sadly my old DVD player has finally packed up after ten years of loyal service, and since the-powers-that-be have cunningly decided to encourage internet piracy by making it impossible to buy region-free players off the shelf, I’ve had to start … Continue reading
