Dampyr Hits Netflix

Dampyr Movie Review You can also listen to the podcast now! Dampyr is a new addition to Netflix that was originally an Italian release in October 2022. It is a vampire horror movie that I ended up watching by accident of sorts. My son put it on to kill time while having dinner and then I got intrigued and decided to finish it. Dampyr stars Wade Briggs as the main character, Harlan; Frida Gustavsson as Tesla; Stuart Martin as Kurjak and David Morrissey as the villain, Gorka. It tells the story of Harlan who is unaware of his legacy as a Dampyr which is the son of a vampire who has the power to kill other vampires, much like Blade. He pretends to be a vampire hunter conning people with his sidekick, Yuri, to make a living. Harlan doesn’t even believe in vampires until he is forced to come face to face with the reality of not only vampires existing but also how he fits into the puzzle.  I have stopped watching horror movies on purpose for a long time now; however, this was not giving me s

Ten Habits Stealing Your Joy

Say Goodbye to these 10 Behaviors for a More Joyful Life A couple of weeks ago The Vessel put out an article about the 10 behaviors a person has to get rid of to be more joyful. Now I felt attacked by some of the suggestions but they are good practical things to try and remove from your life. With the new year fast approaching, now may be a good time to review what you have going on in your life and what you want to leave behind in 2023.  Their list is as follows: Don’t harbor negativity Don’t indulge in self-doubt Don’t cling to past failures Don’t entertain toxic relationships Don’t procrastinate on goals Don’t ignore your health Don’t shy away from self-improvement Don’t resist change Don’t compare yourself to others Don’t neglect your passions I think I will do a full series on this called the “Joyful Don’ts” because these are all good suggestions that I can dig into, one by one. All in all, the article does remind me of the quote below because sometimes you do have to let go of ce

The Killer Number 1 on Netflix Movies

The Killer Listen to the Podcast here or scroll below You all know it is kind of weird for me not to recommend a movie. It takes a great deal for me to not like a movie for the most part. The movie has to be really bad on all accounts for me to absolutely give it a bad review. So, I am half recommending this movie and half not recommending it, leaning heavily on the not part.  The Killer popped on my Netflix movie list as number one this week and since I have enjoyed Michael Fassbender as Magneto from the X-men movies (that’s all I remember seeing him in honestly), I was like let me watch this. It’s about an assassin that is on a mission to get revenge so how bad could it be? Not to mention it has pretty good reviews from Rotten Tomatoes, Google users, and IMDB.  The Killer starring Micahel Fassbender, Sophia Charlotte, Charles Parnell, and Tilda Swinton is about a killer, played by Fassbender, who messes up a job. He basically misses his mark and, of course, you can’t get away without

The Marvels with Brie Larson

The Marvels Listen to the podcast review Let me address the elephant in the space. It has been a while and I am not even sure that I am back. I am getting closer to being back though and it is a wonderful feeling. With that being said, is Marvel back? You may feel that Marvel never left the building but I would like to beg to differ. It low-key feels like the adults went out for a holiday, leaving the kids in charge, and with the making of The Marvels a couple of adults decided to trickle back on into the house. Granted, I went to see this movie without expecting to like it. I was not expecting to hate it either. I figured it was going to be like an eh feeling. However, I actually thoroughly enjoyed The Marvels.  I have not thoroughly enjoyed a Marvel movie in a long time. While I did not hate Love and Thunder, there definitely was no love there. While I enjoyed Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania it was mainly due to Kang portrayed by Jonathan Majors. So imagine my surprise when I left
