This winter, one of my favorite times of the week has been Sunday nights. No matter how cold or dreary it is outside, or how stressed I am about work on Monday, I know I’ll be getting a new episode of the TV series All Creatures Great and Small on
Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None is arguably the most famous mystery novel of all time, selling over 100 million copies since its initial publication in 1939. It’s been adapted countless times over the years in many formats, including film, radio, and the stage. Miraculously, I’ve somehow managed to
As a longtime Star Wars fan, I’ve written countless articles over the years about my favorite franchise. The world doesn’t necessarily need another Ashley Pauls Star Wars blog entry, but here it is anyway! This past week, I had a chance to check off an item that’s been on my
At this point I feel like it’s kind of cliché to say that we’re living in a golden age of television, but truly, we are. I’ve always been more of a movie girl than an avid TV watcher. Film is my favorite medium in which to experience a fictional story.
At the beginning of 2020, I was feeling what I’d call “stubbornly optimistic” about the year ahead. 2019 hadn’t been the best year for me personally, and I was excited for a fresh start. There were going to be tons of cool new movies to blog and podcast about. There
A while back, I blogged about canceling my Disney+ account. Not permanently, of course, but I did feel like it was time for a break. In my first year with the streaming service, I hadn’t watched it as much as I thought I would, and I wanted to try out
’Twas the month before Christmas, And on your TV An explosion of contentSo bright and cheer-y! Let’s deck the halls with tinselAnd plot twists so cheesyIt’s Netflix holiday season…And time to get streaming! That’s right — the holiday season is officially here, and that means your Netflix feed is now overwhelmed with
I firmly believe that every Star Wars fan should watch the infamous “Holiday Special” at least once. It’s not because the Star Wars Holiday Special is some kind of hidden, underappreciated gem. It’s awful — truly, spectacularly, miserably awful. So awful, in fact, that if George Lucas could have used
A couple weeks ago, an email showed up in my inbox notifying me that my Disney+ subscription was about to expire and asking me if I wanted to renew. When Disney+ was first announced, it was big news. For better or worse, Disney is one of the most powerful entertainment
Normally I try not to let the stuff I see on social media bother me too much (otherwise I’d angrily toss my computer into a dumpster). But a while back I saw two separate posts that have stuck with me, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about them.
For many years, there were two film genres I didn’t want anything to do with: Westerns and horror. I was convinced these two genres had nothing to offer me personally as a film fan, and when someone would recommend a Western or a horror film to me, I’d try to
I’m just going to get this out of the way right at the start: even though I’m incredibly hyped for the upcoming “Dune” movie from director Denis Villeneuve, I’m not really all that interested in the novel it’s based on. “Dune” by Frank Herbert is considered to be a science
