Wind River Fidget Review

There are some movies and shows you just can’t watch more than once a year. American History X, Schindler’s List, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest are just a few that come to mind. Now you can safely put Wind River in the same sentence as those aforementioned pieces, and that’s not a bad thing at all — despite […]

Peaky Blinders (Netflix) Season 1 Fidget Review

Very loosely based on an actual well-dressed English street gang in the late 1800’s (though the show takes place in the early 1900’s) Peaky Blinders tells the tale of the Shelby family and their criminal aspirations. We’re talking everything from “protection” and blackmail to deceit and secret selling. It’s your typical criminal stuff but it manages to be fun, even […]

Black Mirror (Netflix) Season 1 Fidget Review

Consisting only of 3 episodes, the first season of Black Mirror packs one heck of a punch. The show takes on an anthology format, enlisting new actors to paint a different picture with each episode — and boy, that picture is almost always bleak and extremely thought-provoking. Most episodes explore the dangers of technological dread (coining it now, folks) and […]

The Ritual (Netflix) Fidget Review

What happens when four friends go hiking through the remote mountains of Sweden, as they honor one of their dead mates? The Ritual is a heart-pounding adventure — especially in its first three-quarters or so — which explores that very subject matter. And while the last portion of the movie doesn’t always hit home, it does little to detract from […]

The End of the F***ing World (Netflix) Fidget Review

With a name like The End of the F***ing World, you’d expect something a little different than the average Netflix offering, and with this show that’s exactly what you get. Apparently based on a comic book by Charles Forsman, the show tells the tale of two angsty teens each in the middle of their own respective identity crisis. James has […]

The Punisher (Netflix) Season 1 Fidget Review

It’s difficult for most shows to maintain their momentum over the course of 13 episodes, and while The Punisher does have moments that feel a bit flat, Jon Bernthal’s performance as Frank Castle aka “The Punisher” is razor sharp and carries the show even at its lowest points. He brings the proper amount of torment and sadness to the role, […]

Mindhunter (Netflix) Season 1 Fidget Review

To say Mindhunter is a killer show is not only punny — it’s also very true. Created by Joe Penhall and produced by the likes of Charlize Theron and David Fincher, the first season centers around the work of two FBI agents in the early days of criminal psychology (the term “serial killer” hasn’t even been coined yet). The dynamic […]
