Meet the Found Family

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Jan. 14, 2023



Last year (har har har obligatory New Year's Joke done) I'd started talking about Found Family, one of my favorite tropes in pretty much any narrative work, from movies to novels to comics and webcomics. Found family is when a bunch of characters, usually unrelated and mismatched, end ...

Tension and Release and appreciation for Watcher

Banes at 12:00AM, Sept. 29, 2022


Watcher (2022) is a fairly unknown new movie, I think, and I recommend it. Simple, well-made, and scary.
