60 days, 60 movies: Countdown to Halloween - Part 2
Welcome back to my list of the best movies to watch through, and ending, Spooky Season! If you're new here, the first part of this list is here. But, without any further delay, let's start this list with another 20 awesome films:
Magic: the Gathering (of Everyone But Women)
It is 4:30 on a Sunday afternoon, and I am watching two men screaming at each other over a card game. This is a local game store, and the individuals in question are neither professionals, nor are they involved in a high stakes tournament. They are playing in a league that costs $5 a week to get into, and is open to all play levels, and has multiple rules that restrict how powerful decks can be to make the game enjoyable for everyone. It is, in short, almost as casual as a league can get, and these man children are arguing as if their livelihoods, marriages, and their firstborn children’s safety are all on the line. This is not the first time I have seen this kind of interaction play out. It wil not be the last. It is in this moment, while I wrap up my own game and say goodbye to the other players—who have thankfully been able to act like adults—that I realize this is why I never see any other girl players at my local game stores Magic the Gathering events, and ultimately what will drive me out of the space as well.
Bee And Puppycat: Why is Cass So Mean?
Spoiler warnings for those that have not watched/finished the series yet! Bee and Puppycat is a series that is characterized just as much by its mysteries as its cute art style, and after its Netflix release, the mysteries have only grown. Theories have already begun to crop up regarding Bee’s father, the timeline of when Bee became a robot, and who, if anyone we have seen yet on screen, is the space princess connected to Puppycat. While these are the obvious elements to be intrigued about, in a show that spans only about 6 ½ hours the smallest details can be connected to the biggest twists.
Westworld and the Limits of White Imagination
Thomas Jefferson described the relationship with the men and women he enslaved as holding "a wolf by the ear, and we can neither hold him nor safely let him go." While he allegedly favored "gradual emancipation," he feared that sudden liberation would result in a race war. We will discuss this fear in greater detail later, but keep it in the back of your mind as we examine the sci-fi hit Westworld and how it relates to revolution and imagination.
See How They Run - A Movie Review

House of the Dragon
As we know episode 4 of House of the Dragon pissed me off to no end, so though I really don’t want to keep watching, as a media journalist I don’t really have a choice.
Do Revenge is Netflix’s latest addition to teen dramas but it is not just another teen movie. After many positive comments on twitter and tiktok I decided to watch it. And honestly, it was incredible.
Cobra Kai: The Degeneration of Karate Kid
Growing up, I was a huge Karate Kid fan. And when I mean huge, I mean HUGE! I would watch the first movie over and over again. In my head, the songs from the movie were spinning on repeat.
