Back in September of 2018, I officially kicked off Existential Binge-Watching.

After capping off 2021 with the absolute madness of Spider-Man: No Way Home, other than the hype of some early looks at the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, 2022 has been a rare slow crawl for Marvel fans. Finally, though, last week saw the start of the latest and greatest MCU entry, Moon Knight, get its premiere. And it was well worth the wait.
You never really know what you’re going to get when the Oscars roll around. The Academy has done some things here and there over recent years to help the award show move along more efficiently, but there are always viral moments waiting to jump out. And while watching Will Smith walk onto the stage and slap Chris Rock wasn’t exactly expected, it seemed in line and made sense to add to these past couple years of COVID-19 chaos for life and the film industry with such a moment.
After a nearly two year wait, the second season of the Amazon Prime hit Upload finally premiered a couple of weeks ago in its entirety. The science fiction dramedy saw its episode count drop from 10 to seven for its sophomore debut, likely due to the pandemic. While the long delay hurt a bit, it was all very much worth it in the end.
With productions and releases mostly back at full power, and due to the extreme prevalence of streaming services, our minds seem programmed to find the next best thing when it comes to movies and TV shows. There’s a hyper-focus on what everyone else is watching and what’s the latest and greatest. Sometimes, though, the best option to kick back and relax with is a rewatch of an older film or a beloved series from when you were a kid.
From The Hunger Games to The Maze Runner, Young Adult novel adaptations seemed especially abundant about a decade ago. In the realm of this Hollywood obsession, there was and has always been the debate of if the films do the books justice. And in the case of the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series? The two film adaptations that came out of it often find themselves being listed as some of the worst of all time. But now Percy Jackson is getting a rare second chance.
Existential Binge-Watching: What we learned from the ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ trailer
It was a depressing end to Super Bowl Sunday for Joe Burrow supporters in Athens and Bengals fans everywhere, but at least there’s always the coveted commercials to look back on and attempt to ease the pain. In addition to the usual quippy celebrity cameo fare, there were some extremely exciting drops in the realm of TV and movie trailers - especially for Marvel fanatics.
After countless theories and a mountain of hype, Spider-Man: No Way Home changed everything. Now that some time has passed, and spoilers shouldn’t be a concern anymore, it felt only right to address how it’s also changed the conversation around ranking each of the Spider-Man films that came before it.
We’re not supposed to, but everyone seems to be talking about Bruno lately.
Existential Binge-Watching: Where we might see the Marvel Netflix heroes make their first reappearances in the MCU
Is there ever a break from the nerdy excitement that is the current state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Not really, no.
As insane as it is to believe, it’s been nearly two and a half years since Euphoria first hit screens back in June of 2019. Thanks to a certain global pandemic bringing the entire world and entertainment industry to a halt, fans were left with only a couple of special episodes to tide them over until the next full season. And while those specials were stunningly well done in their own right, the season two premiere of Euphoria was a very welcome sight after such a long hiatus.
With the likes of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder on the horizon, the cinematic part of the MCU is certainly looking to ramp up excitement for Marvel fans in the next year or two. Everything has also been holding up pretty well on the new Disney+ side of things, though, with the latest series - Hawkeye - serving as another strong entry in our first batch of Marvel shows.
It’s a wonderfully chaotic time to be a Marvel fan. After a slew of exciting announcements and updates during Disney+ Day, only a few quiet days went by before the drop of the second Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. And while the first one gave us just a little taste of what the film might be, the second paints a bit more clearer of a picture. Let’s break it down.
Big Mouth’s premiere in September 2017 feels like yesterday, yet somehow here we are, five seasons in with no signs of slowing down. Now two seasons into the three season renewal news that came out back in 2019, season five brought with it everything viewers have come to expect from Big Mouth.
Although it seems to often be overlooked when searching for something to binge-watch, YouTube has always had an astronomical selection of different content creators and channels to choose from. Sometimes it’s easy to get overwhelmed in the abyss that is the recommended section, but you’re bound to find a couple channels that emerge as reliable clicks for a quick video or two or for longer sit downs to unwind after a stressful day.
Buzzfeed Unsolved is a great series to throw on any time of the year, but spooky season has always felt like the most fitting time to watch a couple episodes of either True Crime or Supernatural. And while fans still have some new episodes this Halloween, after nearly six years and 15 seasons of content with more than one billion views globally and over five million subscribers, both of these flagship YouTube series are coming to an end.
After multiple delays due to the pandemic and even some talks about possibly shifting to an online format, this past weekend officially kicked off both the 47th and 48th installments of the Athens International Film and Video Festival. Now that the nearly 50-year-old festival is back and bigger than ever, more than 500 films have been and will be screened throughout the 10 day weekend to the weekend event.
It’s been more than 10 years since Game of Thrones premiered and more than two since it ended. While it’s a bit hard to believe so much time has passed since the incredibly controversial ending of the previously beloved series, it’s even harder to believe more time hasn’t passed when considering the show’s current standing in popular culture.
Marvel’s What If…? just wrapped up its first season this week, and holistically, it delivered on the premise of the series. The animation was a blast to watch, the voice acting was solid - even for those who were filling in for certain characters - and the storylines spanned numerous scenarios with unique twists on pivotal moments in the previously established MCU.
Mike Flanagan seems to be able to do it all. After serving as the creator, writer, director, executive producer - and even editor for a couple episodes - of both The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor, there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that he had established himself as a master of the horror genre. While Midnight Mass isn’t part of The Haunting anthology, it was definitely still something that was highly anticipated for fans of Flanagan’s work. And it didn’t disappoint in the slightest.
