The Best of 2022: All the Reviews!

 Hello friends and New Year’s Eve!

What’s up everyone and how y’all feelin’?   I hope you are well, refreshed, and taking the time to check in with friends and family.

It’s New Year’s Eve, and there is a bit of excitement in the air and we glide into 2023.  I’m officially on vacation (or staycation), and I don’t have any big plans.  My main goal is to rest and take care of the things that I missed before Christmas.

I feel really proud of myself for not only getting through my Good Reads Challenge list, but writing the reviews which can be challenging if you’ve finished a book weeks ago, and then you’re trying to recall highlights. (Crazy)

However this year I added to that and did a few movie reviews which I’m over-the-moon proud of.  Do you know how hard it is to review a movie…HARD. (LOL) When you’re watching a movie, you’re not thinking about different nuances, character flaws, or what the story is really trying to tell you.  You just watch it and have fun.

So while I don’t have several, here are all the reviews I cranked out (in one month mind you).

Movie Reviews for 2022

Review: Hellraiser

STORY: A young woman must confront the sadistic, supernatural forces behind an enigmatic puzzle box responsible for her brother’s disappearance.

First, I love this Clive Barker series, which is Hellraiser 1-2, and possibly 3 because it dives into to origin of Pinhead, and how he came to be.  The rest are not great, and I wonder why they continued with the story with no real substance, but so it goes. [Hellraiser]


Review: My Best Friends Exorcism

STORY: Teen best friends Abby and Gretchen grapple with an otherworldly demon that takes up residence in Gretchen’s body.

I read My Best Friends Exorcism back in 2019, so the details now are a bit fuzzy.  The movie did alter and merge a few things from what I can remember from the book. [more]



Review: The Midnight Club

STORY: At a manor with a mysterious history, eight members of the Midnight Club meet each night at midnight to tell sinister stories — and to look for signs of the supernatural from the beyond.

The Midnight Club could be the creepy little sister to Are You Afraid of the Dark (Midnight Society). It’s the same premise but this story has a little more meat. That show aired on Nickelodeon, and because this is Netflix there are adult themes. The Midnight Club is not just about the stories (as in Are You Afraid) but delves into the backstories of most of the characters. [more]


Well friends I’ll end this post here. I just want to take a moment to thank everyone that subscribed via email, followed the blog, or gave me a like.  A little goes a long way and I appreciate each and every one of you.

I’m still continuing with the “Best of the Best of 2022” on the blog. Thanks so much for visiting.  — Happy New Year!
