As pollen takes over our city, you might be looking for something to keep you entertained during your moments of indoor respite. Enter: this month’s recommendations!  Our favorite streaming services have a great lineup for April - no foolin’! Check it out below and let us know which you watched.

THE WICKER MAN and Human Superstition

THE WICKER MAN and Human Superstition

Not ALL superstition leads down a path of murder. But, as in the case of THE WICKER MAN, it does make for a great Horror film. All-in-all let’s leave the scary ritualistic superstitions to cinema and stick to things like eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day.

A Case for Ewoks

A Case for Ewoks

When it comes to STAR WARS you should know that Ewoks hold a special place in my soul. Now, I have read many blogs about people’s hate for Ewoks and that they are the worst, etc.  However, I am here to make a case for the Ewoks and prove to you why they actually are worthy of respect.

An Ode to the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

An Ode to the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

There are those memories [in life] that are solidified permanently. Those moments that, for some reason, were life-changing... One of these for me was the first time that I ever watched MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS.

Real Hauntings Make for Realistic Horrors

Real Hauntings Make for Realistic Horrors

Haunted houses are a fright lover’s dream. People go out of their way to attend “haunted” house events every Halloween and there are some that even operate year-round.

OWA Netflix SciFi & Horror Recommendations: September 2016

OWA Netflix SciFi & Horror Recommendations: September 2016

Summer is almost gone and the season of pumpkin spice is about to begin. September brings fall, football, foliage, and, according to what is coming new to Netflix, the season to get caught up on some really great SciFi and Horror TV series. So go grab yourself a PSL (if you’re in Texas like us at OWA, maybe get a cold version) and hunker down because there is a lot to watch this month!

 

 

OWA Netflix SciFi & Horror Recommendations: August 2016

OWA Netflix SciFi & Horror Recommendations: August 2016

With a massive heat wave looming across the country, August is going to be one of the rougher months to endure. Not to mention the fact that, for many, school starts back up again at the end of the month. This means that soon there will be busier schedules and less lazy days.  However, Netflix is treating us this month to some great SciFi and Horror to help us take full advantage of these last bits of summer.
