Expelled From Paradise (Review) [Space is the Place]

Good evening, weary traveler. Welcome to my planet, and hopefully your first stop on a journey through the cosmos. I’ll be your friendly navigator for the Space is the Place expedition and help you find out where to go. First, you’re probably wondering how I got in this situation…. how does one go from a […]

Final Exam (1981) Review

Is 80’s slashers the theme of the summer, my attempt to cash in on the nostalgia more shameless than New Coke… maybe not after this one. Final Exam is a neutered slasher that can be described in one word… BORING! Spend time with this cast of characters more notable by the unfunny nicknames I give […]

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Red Box Rentals

Two posts in a row with the same format, looks like Hollywood isn’t the only losings it’s creativity. Well, decided I had to post some good old simple movie reviews; movies is in the name and I don’t like feeling like I’m false advertising. You know what you came for let’s get into it. The […]

The Sympathetic Killer

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Vile Ted Bundy is what I think is the title of the Netflix movie everyone is talking about at the time of writing this. I’ve heard mixed responses on the film mostly pertaining to how the film has chosen to portray Ted Bundy through the perspective […]

A Critic’s Critique of the Critics’ Critic: Are You Allowed to Say Endgame is Bad?

Preface: I don’t like to stir the pot but I mean just look at that title. It was too fun to pass up the opportunity to write that. I feel it necessary to warn you all that there is something truly terrifying that I will be discussing today, and it is something that may have […]

Epic Endgame Review

So, I just saw Avengers: Endgame and while my review style is to be somewhat interpretative to allow you to weigh my criticisms and praises to reflect on your own… but there are no opinions when it comes to this movie… only facts. The fact is this is the greatest film in all of existence. […]

I Fixed Sonic the Hedgehog… What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Just what an ugly mug. There’s no beating around the bush, Sonic is ugly. I’m sorry society is so shallow that we have to judge this real gangsta by the artificial nature of his looks. Do you think Sonic asked to be this ugly, like he went up to the CGI animators like it was […]

I Don’t Understand All the Fuss About ‘Us’

Jordan Peele’s Doppelganger thriller has already proven itself both a commercial and critical success and in instances like this I would let the massive wave of other critics sing the same praises I had and consider my own input unnecessary. However, if I had to describe Us in one word it would be a toss […]

Geeks, Freaks, and Automobiles! Carnival of Souls Review

https://youtu.be/7goumTeBABw Carnival of Souls is best summarized as weird, cheap, but not lacking passion… I only hope I did it justice. I’d be lying if I said I was 100% glad how this review turned out, apologizes for lackluster efforts in terms of sound mixing and making the video entertaining but I think it certainly […]

Now This is Scary?

When I think of a truly terrifying movie watching experience, I think of The Babyface Murders. While other films have gratuitous jump scares, unsettling imagery, and frightful atmospheric tension…. well all of that is Teletubbies compared to The Babyface Murders. What makes this movie so scary you may ask? Quite Frankly, I did not know […]

Is ‘Hereditary’ Oscar Worthy?

A little late but I’ve finally gotten around to watching the most compelling horror film of 2018, Hereditary. Hereditary is held together by strong performances from Toni Collette and first time feature director Ari Aster shows an impressive willingness to explore his medium and craft as a filmmaker. So with a seemingly weaker year in […]

Netflix Roulette

Come one, come all it’s time to spin the Netflix Wheel. As I teased in my prior post, I am using the Reelgood website which is a quick and easy way to get randomized Netflix flicks to watch. So this is what happened after I took three spins of the wheel. (This post was my […]

Finding Your Way in the ‘City of God’

The tagline for City of God is captivating for those uninitiated, but a loaded statement to reflect upon after viewing. “If you run, the beast catches you; if you stay,the beast eats you” the tag iterates how fated circumstances constructed by environment and attitude will inevitable cause demise. The chicken that darts across the streets […]

The ‘Beautiful Boy’ and the Dangers of Repetition [Review]

“For those few soul-freezing moments, you get a glimpse of the great actorTimothée Chalamet is going to be” – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly “…an intoxicating, frightening and emotionally honest essay on the self-destructive impulses of the nascent artist”- Phillip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette “It was impossible in Beautiful Boy not to take notice of Chalamet’s seemingly undauntable talent, […]

Is The Netflix Original ‘Cam’ Worth Watching?

I just finished this… truly bizarre experience that is watching the recent Netflix Original Cam.  While still trying to digest the film myself maybe I’ll do a full review of it but this is just a quick two cents of whether you should pass or play on this one. Got it, okay let’s answer that […]

‘The Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ Feels Like a Fever-Dream

Does Disney just make these live-action movies for the purpose of giving children sensory overload at this point. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms to put it succinctly is an overstimulating and over bloated movie with such an over reliance on CGI environments that it hopes it provides enough spectacle to take an extremely lackluster […]

Farce or Fantasy? Filmmaking Through the Lens of ‘Day for Night’

Jean-Luc Godard’s accusation against Francois Truffaut for presenting the process of filmmaking as something fraudulently sentimental is unjustified. The words spat by Godard to disparage Truffaut and his vision is more or less a statement on the quality of Day for Night, but a blunt statement that services as proof that la nouvelle vague, French […]

The Pessimists Paradox: The Irony, Symbolism, and Cynicism of ‘La Dolce Vita’

A barrage of paparazzi swarm around a starlet bombarding her with a multitude of questions. One question particularly stands out, and that is whether she considers Italian Neo-realism dead? The question seems incredibly dense in company of the other questions as well as to be directed towards a pop culture icon. The question is even […]

Don’t Be Caught ‘Gnome Alone’? (Review)

I’m only reviewing this because I’m producing the sequel, Country Roads, Take Me Gnome. It’s a road trip movie… but with gnomes. WHAT EVERYONE WANTS! Haha just…why did I watch this?? Netflix wanted to respond to all you Luke Cage and Iron Fist fans and delivery you something to keep your subscription and that’s apparently….Gnome […]

Every Episode of ‘Creeped Out’ Ranked

To get into the halloween spirit I needed to watch some spooky programing and saw Netflix promoting the BBC horror anthology series Creeped Out.  Are any of the episodes worth checking out and if so which ones here’s my personal rank of each episode so if you want to check this fun, spooky series you know […]

Looking Glass – 31 SPOOKS of October

For some reason, mirrors have been a major subject in many works of horror. Despite facing them has become a daily ritual for some, there will always be something inherently uncanny at starting back at ourselves. Of course, there would be something even more creepy if your reflection stares back into you. Please enjoy today’s […]

Is ‘Unsane’ Un-good or Un-bad?

There was a little movie that came out recently you might have heard of it, it’s called Unsane. OF COURSE YOU HAVE, why do I know this? Because everyone on the planet has already talked about this movie by now (sorry no more talking points for me) who apparently showed up late too the party […]

‘Christopher Robin’ a Film That Will Test How Much You Love “Nothing”

“It’s pretty much just Hook, but without the bastardization of Neverland” I don’t know about you but I think that’s one for the box cover. I think that’s the thing that Christopher Robin gets right, the adaptation of Pooh and friends just looks great. You do get a sense of that there’s respect for the […]

I Feel Empty, Is There Any Redemption in Amy Schumer’s Controversial Comedy? [Review]

Amy Schumer’s, I Feel Pretty is the perfect movie for a girl’s night out… wait I’m sorry I read my notes wrong I meant to say it’s perfect for a prelude to a suicide pact. A lot of the “positive” reviews have that it’s “a girl’s night out” movies and just wow, what kind of […]

Netflix Quick Review: Adventures in Public School

Adventures in Public School is the perfect film, for when you don’t want to feel the actual emotion-packed into To All The Boys I’ve Loved, but your not at the point of self-loathing that you actually waste your time watching The Package. Netflix finally pulled the cord and now people like me might be outlet […]

Is a ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ Remake a Good Idea?

yes. The other day I finally got around to watching Adrian Lyne’s (Flashdance, Fatal Attraction) psychological drama Jacob’s Ladder which is available on Amazon Prime and it was wonderful. It’s a greatly executed puzzle film that keeps you guessing until the end what exactly is going on. It’s an exceptional watch for the prowess it […]

Is Refn’s New Cult Classic Movie Website Worth Checking Out?

Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn has been working on a project sure to satisfy those looking for a place to enjoy the low-budget, forgotten movies from the past. Refn’s online streaming site, byNWR.com has finally been released and promises to bring back the obscure hidden gems that you can’t really get anywhere else. This site […]

‘A Perfect Man’ is Unintentionally Kinda Funny (Review)

I’m not going to say much on A Perfect Man (2013) because honestly, who gives a fudge about A Perfect Man. I’m just going to ramble nonsensically but this movie is lowkey hilarious. You know the dialogue is bad when I watch the opening scene and think that this is some kind of “movie within […]

What Exactly is Happening in ‘Enemy’? (Debate/Theory)

The Denis Villeneuve directed, Jake Gyllenhaal starring mystery thriller Enemy shows a problematic clash when Adam Bell a history professor meets an actor who is his exact doppelganger. To everyone who has seen the film will agree that things are never quite as they seem and here we will debate the possible theories as to […]

I Found the Worst Found Footage Movie: A Cheap Trick or A Great Delusion?

You know the expression don’t fly too close to the sun… well it appears I might have done the opposite. I might have dug so deep that I guess I found hell. Today’s films are so bad that I hate to talk in over hyperbolized statements and absolutes, but I feel that calling them the […]
