Cinematic Support For A Quarter-Life Crisis – The Watchlist

Nobody ever said our 20’s were going to be easy. Sure, they come with their fair share of perks, but not even the blessings of wrinkle-free skin, a fast metabolism, and the freakish ability to function with a hangover can save you from the perils of paying off student loans in a job-less economy. As if weeding out your college drinking buddies isn’t hard enough. In the spirit of the quarter-life crisis, and transitioning into adulthood, I went on a search to find some cinematic support either inspired by, or featuring characters currently experiencing the all-too-familiar trials and tribulations that come along with being a 20-something in this week’s installment of The Watchlist.

More Scares The Second Time Around – The Watchlist

Have you ever had an experience where you revisit a movie and the second viewing is somehow very different than how you had originally remembered it? After a recent trip to Blumhouse, I came home with some horror goodies including “Sinister” on Blu-ray.

Sinners & Saints – The Watchlist

Welcome to the first installment of The Watchlist – a new weekly column all about what I’m currently watching and what I thought about it. My name is Erin Darling, and I’m a LA-based TV/web host, writer, and producer. For the past few years I’ve been mainly covering, reviewing, and hosting shows about movies, and as a result I end up watching a lot of ’em. Between screenings, homework for projects I’m working on, and/or nights in with my Netflix account, I normally watch between 7 and 10 films per week. Some of them old, some of them new, some of them virtually unheard of outside of uber specific niche communities of which I’m clearly not cool enough to belong. I digress. The point is, there’s a huge world of cinema out there, and it’s a fascinating world I’m constantly exploring. Now I’m here to share my discoveries with you!
