The Circle: What Are They Reading?
At the beginning of the year, my Netflix recommendations popped up this little reality show called The Circle (not to be confused with David Egger’s book of the same name). As someone who isn’t much of a fan of reality television in general, I, of course,…
Top 10 Films of the Decade
As we approach the end of the decade, we thought we would get in on the list action and ask our most opinionated movie experts to list their top 10 films of the decade. Every list is stacked with some heavy hitters and audience favorites….

Disney+ Service: the Series I’ll Subscribe For
When Disney first announced it’s new subscription streaming service Disney+, I let out an audible groan. Is this what we needed most in a streaming world monopolized by companies like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon? Another service to willingly throw our money at? I’ve gone a…
How to Explain a Movie Plot, Badly
If you know me, you’ll know I am almost totally uncultured when it comes to movies. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love watching movies. But the list I have accumulated over the years of “must-watch movies” (or so my friends tell me) has just…
Horror Adaptation on TV
With the growing popularity of streaming services and our love of spending hours binge-watching the newest, greatest TV series, we are in no shortage of things to watch that quench our horror thirst. Or, if you’re like me, you may also enjoy curling up with…
13 Classic Horror Movies
Halloween horror movie season is just around the corner and that calls for a movie marathon! These scary movies are a combination of jump scares and genuinely terrifying stories. Also, I would not recommend these to children… some of these films are quite horrifying. These…
The Best Disney Halloween Movies
Listen, Disney Channel Original Movies are LITERALLY the greatest. They are, hands down, THE BEST made for TV films known to man. My not-so-humble opinion, of course. Smarthouse, Zenon Girl of The 21st Century, The 13th Year, Luck of the Irish? I could go on…
A Weekend with Film Fest Tucson
October in Tucson is a time for great weather and community events. So far this month, Bookmans Tucson played tabletop games all weekend long at Rincon Oct 4-6 and joined the College of Humanities at their lectures during this month’s Tucson Humanities Festival Oct 2-Nov1….
In My Feelings with Steven Universe
I’ve been a fan of Steven Universe (SU) since 2016 when my regular animated dose of Adventure Time wasn’t enough. Rebecca Sugar, the show’s creator, worked on seasons two and three of Adventure Time and I heard SU was cute and fantastically queer, so I…
My Succession Obsession
“Obsession” is defined as the state of being obsessed with something, an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind. I bring this up because I’ve recently found myself obsessing over a show: Succession. Like many people, I’m getting into this…
Fall in Love with Bookmans!
The fall weather is finally starting to creep in. With the days getting shorter and the nights cooling down, there’s no better time than autumn to fall in love with Bookmans all over again. We are all about celebrating the fall and that includes spooky…
10 Banned Films
Some films, regardless of the rating, get hit with a ban. Banned films happen all the time and most of us here in the US never hear about it. There are some films on the banned list even I found surprising. Here are some of…
Spellbound By The Worst Witch
I’ve always been a sucker for television shows whose original concepts were novels. Of course I still, in most cases, found the book to be much better. I recently found myself mulling through the latest Netflix offerings when I came across a magical gem. Magical…
Welcome Back, Veronica Mars!
I’ve been a Marshmallow (for those not hip to the lingo: Veronica Mars fans) from the beginning. Way back to the fall of 2004. Back then, I wore way too much eyeliner, rocked a bob haircut similar to Ms. Mars, and wanted so badly to…
