Striking Vipers

Striking Vipers

Striking Vipers might be a Black Mirror Episode but it also counts as a film. The anthology series is one of the best running shows on Netflix and is for lovers of sci-fi and oddball stories.
This story recounts the vision of a future where gaming is taken to a whole new level. Two friends reconnect through the game Mortal Kombat while trying to find something missing in their own lives.

Pet Semetary

Pet Semetary

The best reboot for 2019 has to be Pet Semetary. Many people didn’t care for the ending but I though it was fittingly creepy. The atmosphere was altogether amazing and performances were fantastic.

When Ari Aster wrote and directed Hereditary I was pretty impressed. I was almost as impressed with his follow up film Midsommar. His multi-layered storylines and clue-filled cinematography are amazing.

I didn't give Zombieland 2 five stars because the CGI was noticeable. But I liked it. Fans of the original should watch this as soon as possible.




Jordan Peele makes great movies. Us features an alternate universe where dopplegangers exsist and they want to kill us. This movie was so well told and the performances were mind blowing.
