Worst Movies of 2016

Here it is! Finally, after making it halfway through January, it is time to deal with the epitome of suck; The WORST Movies of 2016. All things considered, this year was rather good to me. I certainly saw more good movies than bad movies or at least movies that fell into the passable category. Though I do have to admit that when it comes to the bad movies, they were pretty fucking bad. This list was one of the worst trips down memory lane I have taken. From pretentious art movies to shallow sequels. From terrible YA adaptations to horrific Christian propaganda, this list is going to sum up the worst aspects of 2016 rather well.

I do have to add one more time that this list includes only movies I have personally reviewed. I am sad to say that movies like Hillary’s America and Vaxxed will not be on this list because I did not see them. Though I can safely tell you, from reading the synopsis, and seeing critic reviews that they would almost certainly have taken the 1 and 2 spot if I had seen them. With that said, we will start with one dishonorable mention and then move on to number five! Continue reading “Worst Movies of 2016”

NTSOE: Stranger Things

Well, I thought this would be a fun little thing to share. Just to remind everyone that NTSOE is still alive and well… And also on Project Derailed! GO THERE NAO!

But once you come back, you should listen to Nick, Fiona, and I discuss Stranger Things. Believe it or not, I wasn’t much of a fan.

Tanner Reviews Circle

downloadFINALLY! I see something that is worth watching! After scowering the pages of Netflix looking for something worthwhile to watch, I came across an interesting little Indie film called Circle. A fascinating movie that delves into the realms of Twilight Zone science fiction horror as well as a genuine psychological experiment about the horrors of the human condition and what we, as a society, hold dear. I have to say that I am so happy that I stumbled upon this movie, it is quickly becoming a personal favorite of mine.

The story opens with 50 people wake up in a  black room, standing in red circles, and surrounding a gigantic black orb. They quickly learn that if they step out of the red circle, they are killed by the black orb. Every two minutes someone is killed, seemingly by random chance. After several deaths, they learn that they have the power to vote for the people who are going to die. As people begin dying every two minutes, either by random or by chance, the people in the room must decide who dies, what they are doing there, and if there is anyway for them to make it out of their situation alive.

The Nerdiest Talk Show on Earth: Direct to Streaming Movies and Television Shows

On this episode of The Nerdiest Talk Show on Earth, I am joined, once again, by my good friend Erik Glasgow. On this episode, we discuss direct to streaming television and movies on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and so forth.

Tanner Reviews Darknet

Darknet_TV_logo_2014I do enjoy horror movies. I’m not some pretentious twat wagon that sticks his nose in the air at the mere mention of a slasher flick or a murder spree adventure. Hell, I love the Friday the 13th franchise and I am one of the critics that will constantly praise Saw as being one of the best horror franchises of the past couple of decades. I do enjoy them… But man, of all the genres out there, horror is the one that is filled with the most mind numbing crap. Oh! Speaking of mind numbing crap, let’s talk about Darknet!

I was expecting a lot more out of this series going into it. I saw it on Netflix while browsing through the lists one day and thought: ‘Hmmm…. I do enjoy a good anthology series AND people are comparing it to American Horror Story and V/H/S so I’ll give it a go.’ After watching it, it is nowhere near the same level as American Horror Story and V/H/S. It isn’t even in the same room as American Horror Story and V/H/S. Darknet is the lowly fry cook dumping the used grease into a back alley while American Horror Story and V/H/S enjoy a lovely dinner with sensible good movies and television series.

Top 4 Netflix Originals You Should Watch Right Now (1/29/2015)

I love streaming. At the low price of $8.00 a month you and your friends can share in the joys of cable television like HBO and Stars, but without having to sift through their line up to find the movie you want to watch. Now thanks to streams we can binge watch our favorite shows and movies to our heart’s content. Netflix has evolved over time and has now added original content to their website for us to enjoy. With this addition and joined with its competitors Hulu and Amazon Prime, I feel that it is only a matter of time before Internet Streaming Sites will make cable television a thing of the past. But I digress from today’s topic.

Since Netflix has released its original content, it has been met with overwhelming success from the public. There have been varying levels of success with each of these series and one-off comedy specials or movies. Today we are going to be looking at the Top 4 Netflix originals You Should Watch Right Now!

Before we get started I just want to reiterate that this list is my own personal opinion based on my views of each of these shows. If you disagree, please leave a comment. I love a good debate. But beyond that, on with the list. Continue reading “Top 4 Netflix Originals You Should Watch Right Now (1/29/2015)”

Top 4 Reasons Why Binge Watching on Netflix is a Good Thing

downloadThere is a surprising trend I have noticed on the internet as of late. A very odd one at that. With the rise of the ‘Netflix Original Series’ with such television shows as Orange is the New Black, Hemlock Grove, House of Cards, and so forth there has been a wave of critics who have been very harsh to the series, citing that these are not meant to be television shows and are catered to people who are going to ‘binge watch’ a series instead of watch them once a week and so forth. The more that I see these people complaining, the more and more confused I become. I still do not understand why this is a problem. I mean other than being a couch potato in front of your computer or television screen for the better part of fourteen hours which can do no favors to your health, the concept of binge watching a season is not that bad or horrific of a concept that people are making it out to be. So we find ourselves on this topic today. I’m playing the devil’s advocate here and say that this new sensation of binge watching isn’t a bad thing, but it is the future of television watching in the future.

Once again I would like to preface this with the statement that this is my own list. If you disagree with it, that is cool. I love a good debate so please add it in the comments. Other than that, let’s get started with the list. Continue reading “Top 4 Reasons Why Binge Watching on Netflix is a Good Thing”
