Adam
Adam is a Jewish American who's sick of the white Christian male being America's "default" setting. For money he works in a public library because free books and information access are wonderful things. For love he writes here for his pet project, The Chaotic Neutral, which is always looking for more writers. You can follow him on Instagram, Goodreads, and at his oft neglected Twitter where he will try to post more, and probably live-tweet the Eurovision Song Contest.

Life is Strange: Episode One

Since upgrading my media PC I’ve been installing and starting games like mad. But similar to finding a new TV show to get into, I was having trouble picking one game to really settle down with. I installed Dishonored. I tried out Mad Max (loved the scenery but didn’t feel like getting…

Reaction Ex Machina

This is not a standard review. It is, as the title states, a reaction. Ex Machina is one of those thinky science fiction movies. In analogical terms, Ex Machina is to Terminator 2 as Primer is to Back to the Future Part 2. The film follows Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), who wins a…

Humans: Series 1, Episodes 1-4

Mr. Robot is the sleeper show that everyone keeps saying “you need to watch”. Humans is the show that no one is telling you to watch. Yet. Here’s a little background on the show. It’s a BBC 4 production (that’s the BBC’s smarty pants channel) based on a Swedish science fiction show called Real…

Poltergeist’s passionate mediocrity

This past week has been all over the place, as far as quality of watched films. I’ve seen bland sequels, offensive sequels, dull remakes, and impressive originals, but Poltergeist was a strange one. It wasn’t screened early for critics, which usually means it is relying on ignorance to bolster opening weekend…

It Follows review

Note: This review had been previously published on my old blog. It’s been out of theaters, but recently came out on DVD, so I figured now would be a relevant time to re-post. Also, I love this movie. It is amazingly crafted, and it’s important. It Follows also fits into this summer’s hit…

I have to pretend to hate children

Just as people raised without religion don’t have to consider themselves atheist until confronted by religious people, I didn’t have to consider myself childfree until my friends started procreating. I’m not sure if it’s only because that’s when I had to look at like-minded online groups to get my bearings, but…

Degrassi is back in session

Degrassi, the ridiculous high school comedy/drama/satire/after school special, is back. This is truly one of my guilty pleasures. Pop Culture Happy Hour (one of my favorite podcasts) has addressed the topic of guilty pleasure, and they make a fantastic point. Most guilty pleasures are actually shameful pleasures. Guilt comes from…

Batman: Arkham Mistake

I took some time to write about the experience of purchasing Batman: Arkham Knight for PC. Yes, it’s been an experience. I wanted to make sure that everything had settled a bit, and at this point is has. The general atmosphere surrounding the PC release has shifted from volcanic indignation…
