To Be Fair, Their Other Sequel Was Way Worse: Blair Witch (2016)

Found-footage are always plagued by the concern that they’re usually hit or miss, and the margin for error is so great that when later generations view these movies, the impact of their scares may be lost, or at least not felt as deeply. There are some found-footage that do their job well, many more that don’t, and very few that walk the line of “meh.” For me, “Blair Witch (2016)” kind of straddles that line.

Hair Removal: Men’s Razors Aren’t Necessarily Better Than Women’s

A while ago on Twitter, I joked about making a post comparing different kinds of hair removal tools. I bought men’s razors because they were cheaper, and I had a box of Sally Hansen’s Hair Remover Wax Strips on hand (I bought them a while ago, but I’ve been reliably told that they haven’t changed). Because I was still fresh from my most recent encounter with a Bic Soleil razor, I figured I was probably at the perfect moment to compare the results.
