Hi all. I am a film enthusiast, and notoriously picky about what films I like. This blog covers a variety of films (and some music and video games). I hope you enjoy my salty observations on popular and underground cinema.

My wife and I live in Texas where we are both working on our graduate degrees. Let me introduce our family:


Balthazar is our newest rescue. We got him September 30th and he is old and lazy (but so sweet). Balthazar fought off cancer in his spleen and had a major recovery. Sadly, a malignant cancer emerged and we had to let him go September 2020. He was the sweetest boy and left a huge impact in his short time with us.


Hershel was rescued in 2016. He’s a great movie-watching bud. Hershel passed away in April 2021. We were devastated to lose him. One of the most unique and special pups I’ve ever known.


Ellie was born in 2013 and we have had her since she was a puppy. She loves to bark at nothing, which is great for horror movies.


Gizmo was rescued in 2009 and passed away June 2019. He was 17 years old and the best horror movie buddy you could have.
