Review: Save Yourselves! (2020)

Save Yourselves! (2020) is a film that walks the line between absurdist humor and horror in such a way that it can be both about surviving an alien invasion and escaping from the technological trap that is 21st century life. With relatable characters and the perfect amount of tension, this is a must-watch film in a year where so many of us exist at the intersection of physical isolation and digital dependence.

Webtoon Review: Winter Moon

If you read the blog last month, you might be familiar with my list of Webtoon comics that I suggested. My friend Kit read the list, loved it, then more or less demanded that I read this Webtoon called Winter Moon. I’ve seen this comic on the top lists for Webtoon and hadn’t read it, but it was on the long list I’m checking out. Kit encouraged (read: SPAM) me with a myriad of messages on Facebook IM telling/demanding me to read it. We’ve been friends for about ten years and she has yet to recommend a bad story, so I gave into her demand and read this comic. Needless to say, I fell in love with it and have to admit that Kit is right once again.
