Taking a Stab Tuesdays!: – Gerald’s Game

McConnaughay

Stephen King is a writer I have a lot of admiration for. As a devout horror fan and horror-writer myself, I have a certain respect for any writer who shares that infatuation. In King’s case, I also respect him for ambition, range, and talent. Certain “academics” might chastise him, comparing him […]

Foreign Film Thursdays: A Review of Monster Hunt

McConnaughay

​   Monster Hunt was a successful film, grossing nearly 400 million dollars (the highest-grossing film in China at the time) from a budget of nearly 60 million, justifying a sequel also, which came out earlier this year. Monster Hunt is a 2015 Chinese-Hong Kong fantasy action-comedy film directed by Raman Hui, a director known stateside […]

Taking a Stab Tuesdays!: A Review of Halloween

McConnaughay

As a devout fan of the slasher genre, I was looking forward to the eleventh installment in the Halloween film series, aptly titled Halloween, acting as a direct-sequel to 1978’s classic, also titled Halloween. Although the series’ story-lines and continuity are muddied and confusing to the uninitiated, I was excited when I found out this film would […]

Taking a Stab Tuesdays!: Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

McConnaughay

Nostalgia is very powerful in the entertainment-industry, as film companies try to appeal to the youth, they simultaneously try to appeal to adults in-search of that child-like wonder they felt in their youth. In 2015, a big-screen feature-film for the Goosebumps was released, and I was on-board. I enjoyed the R. L. Stine novels when […]

[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 […]
