T2 Trainspotting (2017)

In the 90’s, if there were two flicks that demonstrated the impact a solid soundtrack can have on a movie’s place in pop culture history, they were Pulp Fiction (1994) and Trainspotting (1996), arguably then followed by Judgement Night (1993) and Reservoir Dogs (1992) (personal bias but I would also throw 1993’s Cool World soundtrack […]

The Suicide Squad (2021)

When the advertising campaign for writer / director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad adaptation kicked off back in 2016, I’ll admit that I was hyped (and even went and saw it as a birthday thing with my wife). It looked like a cool, moody, action-packed story of super-villains being forced to fight for the forces of […]

Shadow in the Cloud (2020)

I had forgotten that this movie existed until a coworker mentioned that he’d caught it on Netflix and that I should check it out. I had already been curious, based on the little I knew (and what I knew wasn’t all good, that’s for sure) but on a tipsy Saturday night, my wife and I […]

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 […]
