As the entertainment industry exponentially expands, so does its constant coverage — blogs, podcasts, YouTube shows, and magazines to cover every episode, casting announcement, trailer, and movie release that happens during the course of the week.
Add in all of those “New On Netflix This Week” articles out there and the influx of information for the average pop culture nerd can become overwhelming.
But what if someone fixed that? What if someone compiled all of the must-see trailers, all of the trendiest rumors, all of the pending release dates, all of the most-fuego latest gear into one easy-to-consume article?
What if the hero we deserve and the hero we need is actually just a weekly entertainment newsletter?

Throwback Watch of the Week
The Last Samurai
Official Synopsis: Set in Japan during the 1870s, The Last Samurai tells the story of Capt. Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise), a respected American military officer hired by the Emperor of Japan to train the country’s first army in the art of modern warfare.
Our Review: Long, but some of the best acting Tom Cruise has done in his career (especially in the last 15 years or so) mixed with truly stunning battle sequences that have stood the test of time. A “rainy Sunday” watch if there ever was one.
Netflix Gem of the Week
I Am Mother
Official Synopsis: A teenage girl is raised by a robot designed to repopulate Earth. Their bond is tested when a stranger arrives with alarming news.
Our Review: Black Mirror meets Moon, I Am Mother is a must-watch for both the sci-fi and the mindfuck crowd.
