Binge-Watch: Netflix’s Stranger Things

Guess what time it is? Time to binge-watch, baby! If you’re looking for a new show to occupy your free time this summer, I highly recommend Netflix’s newest original series, Stranger Things. Created and written by Matt and Ross Duffer, it’s an 80s nostalgia fest and a sci-fi thriller – sort of like a modern […]

Binge-Watch: Amazon’s Mad Dogs

Welcome to another edition of Binge-Watch! By now, you most certainly know how much I love to veg out on a newly released show. This latest binge session was courtesy of Amazon’s newest original series, Mad Dogs. With plenty of faces you’re sure to recognize, Mad Dogs is yet another entry in the category of […]

Spoiler-free Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The first time I saw any Star Wars movie in the theater was in 1983, when Return of the Jedi was released. I was 4. It was a major deal in my family, so much so that when Christmas rolled around 7 months later, my siblings and I were still super excited to receive Star […]

Binge-Watch: Amazon’s Catastrophe

Tired of the same old Boy-Meets-Girl stories? You’re in luck, because Amazon recently released its latest original series, Catastrophe. Created, written by, and starring Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney, Catastrophe is fundamentally a boy-meets-girl story, but with a few complications thrown in. American advertising executive Rob Norris is in London for a brief business trip, […]

Maggie

As you may have noticed, several of us here at Ruthless have a soft spot in our hearts for Arnold Schwarzenegger, and by “soft spot,” I mean that we love watching him deliver cheese-ball one-liners and blow shit up. And you will certainly have heard by now that Arnold is about to reprise his role […]

Binge-Watch: Netflix’s Bloodline

I love a good marathon. Put a new show on Netflix, and I’m there, powering through a whole season in about a day; lately, Netflix has been giving us plenty of shows to binge-watch. Originally, I had planned to review the new Tina Fey Netflix comedy, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I watched the entire first season […]

Revisiting FX’s The Shield

If you were to look back over the history of television, youd see an awful lot of shows about doctors, lawyers, and cops. Seriously, do it! Tons of shows based solely around the idea that people are doctors, lawyers, and cops. What a concept! Because these are such ordinary ideas, Hollywood has to get creative. […]

Interstellar

Full disclosure: Christopher Nolan is my favorite director. Im the kind of fan who has to see his films on opening day, at the earliest possible showing, like a huge nerd. I also obsessively check his imdb.com profile to see what projects hes working on. But dont worry I wont let my fangirl tendencies […]

The Knick

A television show about a hospital is not a new concept. In fact, medical dramas have been pretty popular over the last several decades. From St. Elsewhere to E.R. to House, audiences have always had an interest in shows about medicine, perhaps for two reasons: medicine is a subject that fascinates the general public, and […]

Gone Girl

  Currently, everyone is freaking out about the movie Gone Girl. Whos everyone? Well, for starters, people who have read the book (not me) and people who love David Fincher movies (me). This was evidenced by the crowd I was with at the noon showing on opening day a bunch of ladies who’ve loved Gillian […]
