Allison K. Jones
I've always loved reading and writing. My literary hero is Stephen King and he's a big part of why I do what I do. Film and TV is mostly where you find me, but I also enjoy a good political smack-down every now and then.
Season 2 of 'Riverdale' is Perfect
Dealing with the winter break in the Riverdale fandom is going to hit hard, especially with the underwhelming reveal of the Black Hood. But here’s the real news, it isn’t over yet. Which means, Svenson is likely not the killer, and once again the writers are directing our attention elsewhere.
Macabre Sex - Gerald's Game
After hearing conflicting opinions on the new Netflix original, Gerald’s Game, I finally sat down to watch it. The reviews I heard were anywhere from "It was boring and I didn’t enjoy it" all the way up to "I had to run to the bathroom to vomit." Obviously, I knew I wouldn’t be the latter, but I hoped not to be the former either. I’m a Stephen King fan, so for another one of his books to make it to the screen pleases me.
5 Indie Bands Worth Your Time

Women are as strong and fight just as hard as men for simple things, like the right to vote, wage gaps, and a whole bunch of other things that men will never understand what it’s like to be without. Even when a movie producer aims to have that strong female lead, it sometimes tanks anyway because that’s just not how women work in real life. There are some amazing movies, though, that every feminist should see in their lifetime. The following ten films shed real light on issues and show women in the best way possible.
The Hype Behind a Killer Clown
It’s easy to see why Stephen King’s “IT” will be the most anticipated film in cinematic history. Already, in the short time, the movie has been in cinemas, IT opened to an amazing $186 million in global revenue. Making it the dominant box office crasher since Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and the highest grossing R-rated movie since Deadpool.
Social Media Is Bad for Your Soul
Pick your poison: Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, or any number of other things. Social media is a dangerous territory. You may be thinking “How is liking my Cousin Joe’s post about his cat dangerous?” the answer is, it’s not. But here’s what is. Pictures.
