Is there any worth in releasing bad content on a subscription-based platform?

Generally, I try to avoid bashing movies or video games on this blog; I don’t enjoy it. If I happen to experience something that is disappointing or simply bad, I generally try to find the silver lining in it, because (this should go without saying) nobody sets out to make something that is terrible; itContinue reading “Is there any worth in releasing bad content on a subscription-based platform?”

Polar

Original Netflix movies had a shaky start to 2018; “Bright” was critically panned (I know it’s a late 2017 movie, but I saw it early 2018), “The Cloverfield Paradox” was disappointing, and “Mute”—which I actually liked—gave Netflix Original movies a bad reputation.

The O.D. on Movies: The Haunting on Hill House

Rulerofowls and Couchowl have both been enjoying the hell out of “The Haunting on Hill House”–the new Netflix series directed by Mike Flanagan of Oculus, Ouija: Origin of Evil, and Gerald’s Game fame–and after finishing the series this past week, have taken the time to reflect and discuss the series’ strengths and what they foundContinue reading “The O.D. on Movies: The Haunting on Hill House”
