Best Netflix Cooking Shows
Get ready to binge. It's always a tedious process navigating the Netflix home page in search of a show worth indulging into. Fortunately, if you weave through the many duds, you'll stumble upon some diamonds in the rough. This is especially true for the plethora of cooking shows that the streaming platform has to offer.
The Life of Sirius Black
There are millions of fan theories all over the years from every possible character out of the Harry Potter universe that you could possibly imagine. They differ from believable and unique, to far-fetched and even smutty. The point is, there's something out there for everyone. One of the first theories that ever took shape in my mind was of Sirius. How could one person be so different from his family? There's always the 'black' sheep in many families, but Sirius wins, I think. So, here's another fan theory from a perspective of Sirius.
Best Live Action Adaptations of Cartoons Never Made
Kids have always spent tons of time watching Saturday morning cartoons, but why haven't some of these classic cartoon series been on the big screen?

She’s not "going to bed," as she puts it, she still has art installations to work on, but indeed the curtain may have come down on Agnes Varda at the Cinema.
A New Cape
"Thwip!” I yelled, shooting a web at my sister while dodging her glowing lasso. Being on our trampoline made dodging her attacks much easier and plus made me look a lot more like Spiderman. Using another web to swing around her, I had a clear shot and fired. “Thwip!” Looking up, there lie my enemy, subdued by the sticky net. I was victorious!
Why Do Machines Need The Matrix?
I watched an online review of The Matrix movie as part of Matrix Month by The Nostalgia Critic. It was an oldie by Internet standards, but it was definitely one of his better reviews, and despite him making clear that he didn't like it, he was as objective as he could be. But if you're a fan of The Nostalgia Critic's work, like I am, you'll notice that what he has in earnestness and film knowledge, he lacks in finer details. And this one in particular, I feel he missed out on.

A Fanboy Reflects: 'Thor: The Dark World'
So Thor: The Dark World... Yeah. Last week, I reviewed the original Thor (2011) after a rewatch and my opinion on it did change somewhat. It's not as bad as I remember, but a lot of my problems with it were valid. So, how do I feel about the follow up?
