[NOW STREAMING ON NETFLIX!] OKJA (2017)


June 27, 2017    Jason Coffman

  One common complaint about SNOWPIERCER, Korean director Bong Joon Ho’s English-language debut, was that its bleak post-apocalyptic action also included moments of confusing absurdist humor. But the director has never shied away from comedy, and SNOWPIERCER has more in common with Terry Gilliam than the straight-faced Hollywood sci-fi/action cinema…

[EDITORIAL] With The Latest TWIN PEAKS, David Lynch Brought Arthouse Terror To Cable Television


June 27, 2017    dailygri

“This is the water and this is the well. Drink full and descend. The horse is the white of the eyes, and dark within.” As a Twin Peaks fan since I was in early junior high as well as a deep thinker I was intensely affected by last night’s episode…

  I don’t hang out with the same crowd I hung out with twenty years ago. Nothing wrong with those old friends, but people change. Some got married and had kids. Some got married and didn’t have kids. Some just had kids. Some got divorced. A few people died. I…

[THEATRICAL REVIEW] A LACKLUSTER SCRIPT STALLS OUT DISAPPOINTING ‘BABY DRIVER’ (2017)


June 27, 2017    Mike Vanderbilt

  In the mid to late ‘90s, there was a glut of films featuring wiseass criminal types, non-linear storytelling, and of course, an abundance of pop culture references and retro tunage. This era of Quentinsploitation came about due to the success of both RESERVOIR DOGS and PULP FICTION and while…

          Oh, fuck me — I wouldn’t want to be the first person to “go live” with their review of Part Eight of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks 2017/Twin Peaks: The Return/Twin Peaks Season Three. I couldn’t handle the responsibility.   Here’s what we know for…

[STRAIGHT OUTTA STRAIGHT-TO-VIDEO] SPACE BABES FROM OUTER SPACE (2017)


June 25, 2017    Jeremy Lowe

        I was too young to enjoy the comedic campiness of sci-fi softcore during its heyday. I remember as a young boy, looking up at the shelf that had a sign on it which read, “adults only”, behind the counter at my local video rental store. Being…

June 25, 2017    Ryan Carey

    One of the chief gripes that a lot of folks who’ve fallen away from comics over the years have is that the medium just takes itself way too fucking seriously these days — and I have to admit that, looking over much of the output that comes from the…

  Harold here. I’m the janitor. I was asked to write one of this week’s TWIN PEAKS articles. The one Rich Maier wrote made no sense. They said it was too hard to understand and had a lot of swearing in it. They told me he’s at a some dive…

June 21, 2017    Jeremy Lowe

      Parenthood is something I have avoided like the plague. Not that I wouldn’t die for my nieces and nephews, but the level of responsibility, and sacrifice it takes to raise a child is monumental. My hat goes off to parents, especially single fathers and mothers, who would…

[BOOK REVIEW] OUR LADY OF THE INFERNO


June 21, 2017    Matt Wedge

  I say this as a positive: it is very clear that a first-time novelist wrote Our Lady of the Inferno. There is an overabundance of detail given to the early ’80s locations, music, movies, and fashions of the time, as though every last detail discovered through extensive research was…

June 21, 2017    Zack Long

    The body count is always bigger. The death scenes are always much more elaborate, with more blood or gore. Those are the rules for horror movie sequels as set out by the film geek Randy in SCREAM 2. After the success of the first film kicked off the…
