I know that it is a very unusual to release a "Top 10 of 2017" list when it's already a month into 2018, however, I have two very good reasons for doing so. I was unable to make it to the theater for most of December due to leg surgery so I have been playing... Continue Reading →

Alone Together premieres January 10th, 8:30pm on Freeform.
By Chris Flanagan
Alone Together can be best described as Difficult People for millennials. How you respond upon reading that sentence will determine whether or not this show is worth your time.
Alone Together follows Esther and Benji, two twenty-somethings that live with Benji’s parents while trying to survive amongst Los Angeles culture. They struggle to make sense of their lives which results in several hilarious moments over the course of the show, most notably in the first episode when Esther “accidentally” joins an escort service. If you’re familiar with shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm or Difficult People, then you have already seen this show. The only difference is that these curmudgeons are much younger.

The Polka King is available on Netflix on January 12th.

The Polka King focuses on the bizarrely true story of Jan Lewan, the self-proclaimed Pennsylvania king of Polka, as he seeks to grasp the American dream of becoming rich and famous but instead enters into the role of conductor to an all too attractive Ponzi scheme, resulting in over 4 million dollars taken from elderly couples across 14 states.

Jack Black plays Jan Lewan and at first, you aren’t sure if his impression is meant as farce or an actual attempt at a real impression. In fact, it wasn’t until the end credits where you actually get to hear the real Lewan that you realize that…

This is the 4th installment of a franchise that helped usher in a new wave of lower budget, but not lower quality, horror film. In other words, its place amongst the other movies that make up the Insidious series is better known as THE CASH GRAB. The Last Key's story centers around the... Continue Reading →
Not only an OG in the horror genre but also ahead of its time as a Christmas horror movie, Black Christmas manages to be unsettling and leave you hanging in a very good, albeit dated, horror movie. The group had a lot to say about this film, both positive and negative, which lead to some... Continue Reading →
Both an 80's and a Xmas horror classic, it's no surprise that Gremlins made this list, but what does come as a shock is that not all of the group sees this as an actually good Christmas movie. Enjoy listening as those that do love this classic hurl passive aggressive insults towards those... Continue Reading →
A more modern selection, Krampus served as a fun watch for the group and even more fun discussion because like several others in this series, it divided the group on whether or not it was actually good. Enjoy! LISTEN HERE: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/xmas-horror-krampus/id1059779559?i=1000397868783&mt=2
Of course, there had to be a foreign Christmas horror movie on this list and so we went with Rare Exports. This film surprisingly divided the group as to whether they liked it or not, but most agreed on the one major aspect that needed to change, but I'll let you listen to... Continue Reading →
