Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at the latest Netflix prestige project titled “The Devil All The Time.” Written and directed by Antonio Campos from the novel by Donald Ray Pollack, this film is a slow burn post-World War II thriller that features several fantastic performances including a terrific turn by Tom Holland that will actually make you forget he’s Marvel’s Spiderman!Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at the sequel to the Netflix hit “The Babysitter.” This one’s called “The Babysitter: Killer Queen” and takes place a couple of years after the events of the first film. Director McG returns to helm this latest installment almost the entire cast of the first film returns as well. These films have a goofy vibe that you’re either gonna love or hate (not much chance for middle ground folks) so it’s safe to say that if you liked the first film, “Killer Queen” will provide more of the same type of entertainment.Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here to supply a little laughter in these less-than-humorous times. It’s tough out there and sometimes you just need a little escape back to a simpler time. Continuing my features on old radio programs I’ve got a couple for you from my favorite comedy show of all time. These two come from the Jack Benny program in late 1945! The first involves Jack mistakenly believing he’s been invited to movie star Ronald Coleman’s house for dinner. The second features Jack returning the favor and featuring one of the funniest English butlers you’ve ever heard. Enjoy these episodes and feel free to comment below or at my Facebook page! So Sayeth The Kendog!

The zombie sub-genre of horror has been everywhere for several years now and we’re seeing signs of brain-eating-monster-fatigue. Thankfully “#Alive” is here to throw a welcome jolt into the field of zombie films.Continue reading
Howdy folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at Disney’s live action remake of the 1998 animated film “Mulan.” The original film is a musical about the coming of age of a woman who disguises herself as a boy to fight in the Chinese army in place of her ailing father. In undergoing this deception, Mulan finds out who she really is and becomes a Chinese hero in the process. The new film follows the same general plot with some noticeable differences. The result is a film that, while lovely to look at, keeps the audience at arms length from an emotional standpoint.Continue reading
