FOR PREVIOUS BUFFY REVIEWS, CLICK HERE! After that tense two-parter, we handily clean up our unresolved plot threads by seeing Buffy, Xander, and Willow casually alert the audience that the Court Of Terrakion contract has been cancelled for… reasons. They are also making super hip and timely 1997 references to Captain & Tenille… though that MIGHT have been the joke, and I’m not prepared for … Continue reading JOHN RITTER WAS ON THIS SHOW?! A BTVS Retrospective: S2 E11-12
I went into “Marvel the Shell With Shoes On” expecting basically just a long form of his numerous YouTube videos. What I found was a deeply moving, often funny, sometimes tearjerkingly sad, masterpiece of a story. Marcel lives alone with his grandmother after an incident caused the rest of his family and neighbors to vanish one evening. The two share a house and soon find … Continue reading Marcel the Shell With Shoes On (2021)
Christopher Landon has a new movie out on Netflix! It took me a second to place the name when I first heard this, but Christopher Landon is behind some absolutely great flicks. Disturbia. Some of the decent Paranormal Activity movies before the franchise went too far up its own bottom. Freaky. And Happy Death Day! I love Happy Death Day! Once I placed all of … Continue reading We Have A Ghost Review

FOR PREVIOUS BUFFY REVIEWS, CLICK HERE! Buffy, Willow, and Xander are at school filling out a test to decide what kind of job they will be best at. Is this a real thing? I see this in fiction a lot, but my school never did this. Also, it’s apparently optional here, as Buffy notes the principal is making her do it. See, man? This guy … Continue reading Sometimes There Are 2-Parters: A BTVS Retrospective, S2 E9-10
Is it possible to be both a one-trick pony and yet also incredibly versatile with your trick? That’s the question I am left with as I have just watched Makoto Shinkai’s newest offering, Suzume. Of his previous works, I’ve seen his two most famous: 2016’s Your Name., and 2019’s Weathering With You. And here’s the truth of the matter: Shinkai loves doing teenage love stories … Continue reading Suzume Review
I was supposed to see three movies in theater this weekend, but it’s going to be just two. Sorry, The Pope’s Exorcist; I had no time for you this weekend. Next weekend! The other two flicks were a lot more must-see than Russell Crowe’s newest attempt at Acting With A Silly Accent. And the first of those two was the new Nicholas Cage vehicle, Renfield! … Continue reading Renfield Review
FOR PREVIOUS BUFFY REVIEWS, CLICK HERE! Episode 7 kicks off with Drusilla out and about on her own. She acts up a typical Drusilla storm of seeming like she is drugged and would rather be doing anything else in the world than be on set as she gets ready to chow down on a kid she finds waiting for his parents. Angel intervenes to save … Continue reading Spike Is A Clown: A BTVS Retrospective: S2 E7-8
A Conan who doesn’t tell you what is best in life? We’re not too sure about this one…
But either way, Matt from Panel 2 Panel joins the Order this episode to see how Jason Mamoa’s turn as the legendary warrior holds up!

I finally got Apple TV Plus. And by “got” it, I mean I realized my new television comes with a free three month trial, so depending on how infatuated my wife gets with shows like Ted Lasso, Severance, and Servant, I may have it for three months, or I may have it indefinitely. But me? I’m here for the movies, as always. TV shows are … Continue reading Tetris Review
FOR PREVIOUS BUFFY REVIEWS, CLICK HERE! After having episodes 3 (great!) and 4 (terrible!) back to back, I have no idea what to expect from this show anymore. These two episodes could have quality levels of virtually anything, and I’d be like “Yeah, that makes sense, sure”. I’m very curious as to where we go in this pair. The second season’s fifth episode kicks off … Continue reading Oh no, Xander Sucks Again: A BtVS Retrospective: S2 Episodes 5-6
NOTE: SPOILERS WITHIN FOR DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: HONOR AMONG THIEVES Oh man, I miss actual Dungeons & Dragons. It’s been a long time since I have played D&D. I’ve had a few opportunities in the last few years to get back into it, but I just don’t have the time these days. And the people I would be most able to play with are folks … Continue reading Dungeons & Dragons Review

FOR PREVIOUS BUFFY REVIEWS, CLICK HERE! We start off in school, and GOD I can’t wait for these kids to graduate and get out of this setting already. Principal Snyder is here with Buffy and another heretofore unseen student named Sheila. According to Snyder, these two are the worst students in SunnyDale… and he is going to expel one of them. So he does what … Continue reading A Promise of Railroad Spikes: A BTVS Retrospective, S2 E3-4
My Sailor Moon Story:-Bold statement: Nobody has ever loved anything as teenaged Jab loved Sailor Moon. I LOVED this show when I was in High School. In a time when it was massively uncool for a boy to watch a “show for girls”, I was like openly talking about this to several of my male friends at the time. I remember seeing snippets of it at … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon (The Entire Anime Series) Part 2
