[9/30/19] – The First Month of Mashers Club

McConnaughay

Today celebrates Mashers Clubs’ first month! I almost didn’t have a chance to write this article (designating it for tomorrow, instead), because I had spent most the weekend a couple hours away from home attending the 2019 Saluki Comic Con. I was a vendor, alongside my brother Scott Moore and fiancee Beccah, selling copies of The Canes series, Katalene […]

Full Moon Magic Mondays!: – Head of the Family

McConnaughay

The Mashers Club is direct with its intentions – I want to find my favorite films (and video-game, television series, etc.). This is a fool’s errand in the ever-expanding world of entertainment, but it’s also a lot of fun to share my opinion with each of you. I’ve played it […]

Now Playing: A Review of A Way Out

McConnaughay

As gaming continues to aspire and reach new heights, it’s unfortunate that local couch co-op has largely been left by the wayside. This is an issue that hasn’t been remedied and, honestly, it is something I never appreciated until after I met my fiancee and began playing games with her. […]

Now Presenting: A Review of Aladdin

McConnaughay

Disney has found gold, so to speak, by mining their archive of animated classics to be repurposed and remade as live-action (or a more realistic animation, as seen with The Lion King) films. The reception from the public-at-large has seen vocal detractors and supporters. Praise can be found for Disney […]

Foreign Film Thursdays: A Review of Tokyo Ghoul

McConnaughay

When the first season of Tokyo Ghoul first debuted, I was brought in by the interesting concept and an art-style very attuned to my anime preferences. It was polished, clean, and very open to bloodshed, following a natural progression from the classic vampire myths: Ghouls. Individuals who look and seem […]

Foreign Film Thursdays: A Review of Fullmetal Alchemist

McConnaughay

On this edition of Foreign Film Thursdays, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the live-action Fullmetal Alchemist film, made available on the Netflix streaming service. I’ll start off by sharing how much I dearly covet the anime series. If I were to make a list of my favorite things in-general in-terms of entertainment, […]

Taking a Stab Tuesdays!: A Review of Child’s Play (2019)

McConnaughay

I have a lot of love for the Child’s Play series. In-fact, Child’s Play 2 is among my favorite slasher (and horror!) films ever. I loved the colorful cinematography and the light-heart approach. I loved Brad Dourif’s performance and the cartoon cat-and-mouse between Andy and Chucky. Since the glory days […]

Foreign Film Thursdays: Monkey King: Hero is Back

McConnaughay

Animation is wonderful, and yet, it isn’t very often that foreign animation is able to find the caliber of success enjoyed Stateside. This isn’t always the truth, for instance, Japan has its own distinct brand through anime and companies like Studio Ghibli finding real mainstream success (Spirited Away made nearly […]
