11: Tangents Vol. 11: Dreaming of the Apple Vision Pro for Movies

It's 2024 and that means it's time for some brand new tangents! First on tap is the newest frontier in personal technological exploration. Ron will be acquiring the Apple Vision Pro in its initial offering and this is a serious game changer. While acknowledging this isn’t directly movie related, it’s very much movie adjacent as this presents a potentially whole new way for people to enjoy the home cinematic experience. …

86: Mastering ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s’ (2023)

Welcome back Cinemaster fans for a special episode of the Spooktacular 3.0! This time we’ve got a very special movie to talk about and an extra Cinemaster Jr. in the house to talk with us. Ron and Adam are talking all things Freddy! No, not that knife gloved madman who stalks you in the dream world. I’m talking the animatronic pizza purveyor who comes for you in real life, though …

31 Days of Horror – October 31st – “A Haunting in Venice”

Well this is it. We’ve reached the end and the big night is finally here. I think sitting here tonight I realized that one thing I would do differently in the future is perhaps have a better plan for a finale to something like this. I don’t have a real problem with a slapdash thrown together catalog over the majority of the month. I know myself well enough to understand …

31 Days of Horror – October 28th – “The People Under the Stairs”

After the success of Five Nights at Freddy’s, I figured I’d go back to the Peacock well and see what I could find to whet my appetite tonight. I know I’ve looked through their catalog before but I’ve not looked recently and found a few things that struck my fancy. Ultimately I felt the call of a Wed Craven 90’s classic. I picked this one up not too long ago …

31 Days of Horror – October 27th – “Five Nights at Freddy’s”

This is quite the occasion here, let me tell you. I’ve been planning on this one since probably before I really decided to officially do this whole 31 days thing. Every other day has mostly been a crap shoot of what I’m going to watch. No real rhyme or reason to the planning of what I view on any particular day. Whatever strikes my fancy that evening is what makes …

31 Days of Horror – October 26th – “Meg 2: The Trench”

Tonight I have to thank the good old Internet Movie Database for my free pass on this flick. They qualify this one as a horror movie. If I’m being honest it’s clearly leaning far more heavily on the action side of the film than the horror but I shouldn’t discount the efforts made to be both menacing and truly frightening at points in this film. Clearly this film is born …

31 Days of Horror – October 24th – “Becky”

One of the things I did at the beginning of this autumnal adventure was try and map out what the different streaming platforms had to offer. I know a few times, especially towards the beginning, I scrolled somewhat haplessly trying to find something that suited my fancy. Not every service had a great interface that can capitalize on their entire catalog in an easy to manage fashion. Prime Video sort …
