Howdy friends. It has been a quieter two weeks around AwesomeFriday HQ, but we have a closer look at the new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League and WandaVision aired its antepenultimate and penultimate episodes. Woo, big words.
I’d like to once again thank each of you for the support, I appreciate each and every one of you.
Hello friends! It has been two weeks since I posted here, these updates work better for me as bi-weekly, but if you liked getting one every seven days please let me know.
January is off to a busy start, with four film reviews, continuing coverage of A Perfect Planet, and starting this past week coverage of the new Marvel series WandaVision. Disney gave me access to the first three episodes and I am very much digging that so far.
So far I have mostly been writing about things that I have seen but here’s question for you, dear supporters: What kind of things do you want to see? Rankings? Interviews? Trailer breakdowns? A return of the podcast? Let me know in the comments or on twitter.
In closing, I’d like to take this opportunity to once again thank everyone for their ongoing support. It truly does mean the world to me.
Happy new year friends! Apologies for the late update, but the holiday season got away from me a little bit. 2020 was a mixed bag on most fronts, but it turns out it was a great year for movies, with the lack of big tentpole screenings opening up doors to so many more indie and mid-level films, the results speak for themselves. The biggest piece I’ve written lately is my year-end best-of list. There are eleven films in my top ten, as well as several honourable mentions, as well as six performers I loved in 2020.
Greetings friends. Apologies for not having updated last week. Real-life, man. It’s a thing!
Since the last update, your patronage has helped me write eight pieces. Four reviews from Disney+, Netflix, and AppleTV+ (including a review of WolfWalkers, one of the best movies of the year) plus recaps of the last two episodes of The Mandalorian (the most recent of which was the best of this season so far).
I’m also attending this year’s virtual edition of the Whistler Film Festival, which for me started with one of the best Canadian films I’ve seen this year.
It’s been a pretty good two weeks, is what I am saying. Thank you again for your ongoing support, I greatly appreciate it,d and I love you all.
Greetings friends! This week on Awesome Friday I covered four new things for your reading and viewing pleasure. The latest Ron Howard movie, a documentary about the Mercury Seven, the return to screen for Sophia Loren, and the latest episode of The Mandalorian.
Greetings friends! This was a slower week on Awesome Friday, but your support helped bring three pieces this week.
First, I had the pleasure of speaking with Canadian horror director Amelia Moses about her new film Bloodthirsty, which screened as a part of Blood in the Snow Film Festival. This was the second time I’ve spoken to Amelia, and she was a blast to speak to both times.
Every pair of eyeballs on my work and every cent of support is greatly appreciated and I thank you all for it. If you are already a patron, thank you. If you are not, and you like what you’re reading, please consider becoming one. Thank you.
Greetings friends! This week on Awesome Friday I covered a few films and series.
This week continued coverage of the Blood in the Snow horror film festival, as well as a review of the Netflix original His House, and a recap and review of the second season premiere of The Mandalorian.
As always, thank you all for your readership, and if you like what you are reading please consider throwing some support my way. Every dollar counts toward helping me do this thing I love doing.
This week has been a big one here at Awesome Friday HQ as my biggest project since the blog relaunch was posted this week. I watched all 31 Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror episodes and ranked all 93 segments from my least to most favourite. It was no small feat and game together over the course of a few weeks leading up to the broadcast of this years edition, which as it turned out, was pretty good!
This week also saw the start of my coverage of the 2020 Blood in the Snow festival, which features Canadian horror films broadcast this year via SuperChannel.
Also this week, a review of the new Netflix limited series The Queen’s Gambit, as well as a new short film from Disney, and the new Sofia Coppola film On the Rocks from AppleTV+.
I want to take this to say thank you to each one of you. I greatly appreciate the support, and I’m working hard to bring you interesting stuff. As always, if you are not already a supporter, please consider becoming one. Every dollar helps me keep doing this thing I love. Thanks!
