Godzilla VS Kong (2021)

As I’ve mentioned before, I love the old school Kaiju flicks that have poured out of Asia, going back to Japan’s first terror-filled introduction to the genre in 1954, with the original Godzilla (or Gojira, more accurately) when he was acting as the cathartic personification of the fear and horror the Japanese population endured in […]

Army of the Dead (2021)

Zack Snyder has taken a lot of shit in his career, especially over the last decade, really from around the time that he (unwisely?) hitched his wagon to the DC Cinematic Universe, as overseen by Warner Bros. Before I proceed further, I’ll just preface this by saying that, without shame, I’ve always been entertained by […]

Greenland (2020)

The Scene – it was a Friday night after yet another taxing week and my Better Half and I were wanting to check out something with an escapist slant to it…you know…the equivalent to tasty cinematic pablum. Easily digestible. Not too strenuous on the brain or nerves. Sifting through our streaming choices…I stumbled upon Greenland. […]

The Midnight Sky (2020)

George Clooney is reliable, as in – I know that virtually any role I catch the charismatic leading man in, he’s going to kick ass with it. Given that he’s been acting steadily since the early 1980’s, it’s no big surprise that he’s honed his craft as finely as he has. And, like many other […]

Mario Puzo’s The Godfather Coda: “The Death of Michael Corleone” (1990 / 2020)

Otherwise known as The Godfather Part 3. The 1970’s and 80’s were largely a time of vast success and praise for writer / director Francis Ford Coppola and in that time, he gifted us with some undeniably fantastic films, including two of the most masterful gangster movies ever committed to celluloid; those being The Godfather […]

3 From Hell (2019)

When it comes to the films of shock rocker / writer / director Rob Zombie, I’m split right down the middle. On one hand, I appreciate the deft hand he has shown when it comes to 70’s inspired exploitation-style horror flicks and there’s no denying that the man has skill and style. On the other […]

Tenet (2020)

If there’s one thing, among many others, that pisses me off about COVID-19, it’s how it’s fucked me out of seeing new movies on the Big Screen. Seriously, I have almost $200 sitting on a gift card for our local theatre that I can’t use since the major studios are MOSTLY and wisely opting to […]

Gerald’s Game (2017)

So, much like the tons of Netflix-watching peeps out there, my Better Half and I opted to check out The Haunting of Bly Manor this weekend. Bly Manor is the second ‘haunting’ series brought to the streaming service by talented horror writer / director Mike Flanagan, the first being the solidly effective The Haunting of […]

Casualties of War (1989)

Brian de Palma is another legend in Hollywood. Going all the way back to 1960, his films have ALMOST always resonated with audiences, in one way or another. I mean really, when you can boast having the likes of Carrie (1976), The Fury (1978), Blow Out (1981), Scarface (1983), The Untouchables (1987), Carlito’s Way (1993) […]

Seraphim Falls (2006)

Way back when, I used to work for a company called Technicolor Cinema Distribution as a Film Revisor (2007-2011) and I loved it, film nerd that I am. One of the duties I was charged with, before I was promoted to Account Representative, was the removal and attachment of select trailers to 35mm film prints […]
