Double Toasted recently ripped Kevin Smith’s Yoga Hosers on a premise that very much speaks to how I feel about 50 Shades Darker. In the DT review, they lamented that Smith could still get shit made into a movie, which crowded out other filmmakers […]

‘Through the Woods’ is more than cheap jump scares.

Through the Woods is out and it’s shinier than it was when I played the demo back in 2015. To be fair, it released back on October 27, 2016 and even though I had a copy of it at launch, I took […]
