Despite coming out three full years before the turn of the century, Satoshi Kon’s Perfect Blue is laced with poignant social commentary —the majority of which remains as relevant as ever— tackling issues such as femininity and objectification, mental health, fanaticism, and more.

For the first time in the Warrens’ filmography, James Wan is not in the director’s chair in The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, and even casual moviegoers will likely be able to tell you that upon watching this installment. With Michael Chaves (The Curse of la Llorona) at the helm, we see the Warrens investigate a murder in which the accused cites demonic possession as his defense. The Warrens, we’re shown, do have some insight to this claim, having witnessed during a botched exorcism in the opening scene the transference of a demonic entity from 8-year-old David Glatzel (Julian Hilliard) to Arne Johnson (Ruairi O’Connor). During the exchange, Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson) is felled with a heart attack, keeping him out of commission as the only witness to this event until it’s too late to stop the subsequent murder.

Some of the best fantasy bookings are the ones simply bold enough to ask “what if?” As such, I couldn’t help but wonder what would’ve happened if Shawn Michaels hadn’t been forced to retire for four years in 1998.
While Ninja Sex Party may be just months away from its 10-year Anniversary, the band had yet to perform in the city of Dallas. For their loyal fans, the years worth of anticipation was more than evident. From the moment The Bomb Factory doors opened, chants of “Danny Sexbang,” “Ninja Brian,” “NSP,” and more filled the air. The crowd’s energy would not falter as the night wore on.
