Review: The Netflix Series INVENTING ANNA is Kind of a Scam

Hold on. Did I just get scammed by watching the series Inventing Anna, which is about the twenty-something-year-old fake German Heiress Anna Sorokin? Because I have been waiting weeks for the series to drop, and I watched all of it, but 600 whole minutes of largely pro-conwoman propaganda, really?!? That feels like a farce. Or … Continue reading Review: The Netflix Series INVENTING ANNA is Kind of a Scam

Review: LOVE & ANARCHY (Kärlek & Anarki) is So Good That I’ve Watched it Twice…So Far

I almost missed out on Love and Anarchy. The trailer, as trailers often do, strips the series of its depth and pacing, which left me thinking it would be a lot of awkward angles and sucker punches. But I was wrong. So wrong. I've seen the series described in a lot of ways—workplace comedy, dramedy, … Continue reading Review: LOVE & ANARCHY (Kärlek & Anarki) is So Good That I’ve Watched it Twice…So Far

Review: SWEET MAGNOLIAS SEASON 2 Turns Up the Drama and the Faith, But Still Keeps the Right Balance for Hypnotic Binging

Before you start watching, go ahead and pour one out for much of the levity and flirtatious moments you may have enjoyed during the first season of Sweet Magnolias, because the second season leans much harder into the DRA-MUH and the Faith (more specifically, the Jesus). We remember you fondly, oh fortuitously-timed broken pipes and … Continue reading Review: SWEET MAGNOLIAS SEASON 2 Turns Up the Drama and the Faith, But Still Keeps the Right Balance for Hypnotic Binging

Alyssa Milano and Sam Page with their faces touching and their eyes closed. At the top it says a Netflix Film. At the bottom in red letters it says BRAZEN.

Review: BRAZEN (2022) is Unintentionally Hilarious

Sweet suffering algorithmic chaos! What have we done to deserve this movie? I mean, on the plus side, I snort-laughed several times while watching Brazen. On the downside, absolutely none of it is actually intended as humorous. Here's the thing, though, the acting is not as offensively bad as I expected, and the surprise of … Continue reading Review: BRAZEN (2022) is Unintentionally Hilarious

Review: EMILY IN PARIS Season 2 Where La Dame PiPi Changed Everything For Me

Bienvenue to season two of Emily in Paris where the writers basically say: Screw you! We all complained so bitterly about last season but still binged it in droves, so the writers have no hesitation about hurling the same colorful dreck at us again this season. Is that an exaggeration? Maybe. But only slightly. Yes, … Continue reading Review: EMILY IN PARIS Season 2 Where La Dame PiPi Changed Everything For Me
