Rental Review – Year One

Year One takes a trip back to prehistoric times for its inspiration, but unfortunately no one remembered to pack the comedy. Going off of survival of the fittest standards, Zed and Oh would have been bred out of the species a long time ago.  In a nutshell, they are lazy outcasts who are unskilled at […]

TV Review – Harper’s Island: The Complete Series

Harper’s Island may choose to wade through the waters of TV’s tamer horror genre rather than create major ripples with a cannonball into the deep end, but for me it still manages to be a welcome allusion to the campier horror films I grew up with. It follows Henry Dunn (Christopher Gorham), Trish Wellington (Katie […]
