I feel no shame in stating that I find movies based on video games bad. I have never seen a movie based on a video game do well.

Friday marked the 55thanniversary of the British sci-fi show “Doctor Who.” Created in 1963, the series follows an alien known only as the Doctor as they traverse time and space with their companions.

Like many of my peers raised in the Bible belt, the clear satanic references in the trailer of the new Netflix original, “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” made me wary to begin the series. But since I loved “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” the sitcom based off of the same comic as the Netflix original, I couldn’t resist trying to watch it. Sometimes you just have to make the risky streaming choice.
