Comic-Con

Comic-Con 2019 gives us more trailers than we can shake a stick at, and all the “Holy forking shirtballs!” we needed.

The Mindflayer (Stranger Things, Season 3: Review)

I’ve been in love with Stranger Things since the premier of season 1, before I had a clue what it was about. The series is a wonderful homage to past science fiction and horror films, as well as a solid cultural reference for the 1980’s. I’ve found it amazing all the little things they get…
