*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* There have been numerous episodes that explore this territory, both on The X-Files and many other shows. What made this episode wonderful was watching Mulder and Scully interact with each other on a level we’ve rarely seen, all the while trying to avoid machines hunting them down, thanks to a poor dining […]

Review: Star Trek Discovery Takes a Deep Breath in “The War Without, The War Within”

by Jeff Fountainon February 6, 2018
The first thirteen episodes of this season, the show’s first season, have been pretty much the ‘full speed ahead, take no prisoners’ kind of approach.

Movie Review: “Caught” is a Home Invasion Movie with a Creepy Twist

by Jeff Fountainon April 5, 2017
To be honest, home invasion movies have become rather pedestrian in the last few years, with a few critical and commercial hits spawning far too many inferior copies. However, every now and again a movie breaks out of the regular mold and gives us something a little different, and that’s exactly what happened with “Caught”. […]
