FAST & FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS & SHAW

The Fast and the Furious franchise didn’t really become enjoyable to me until Fast Five. Not only was it a lot more fun and self-aware by going for full action schlock, it was also the introduction of Dwayne Johnson that further added to the fun factor. Compared to the brick-faced, […]

ONCE UPON A TIME… IN HOLLYWOOD

Since he releases films so sporadically, I’m happy I’m finally able to talk about Quentin Tarantino, as he’s no doubt my favorite director and screenwriter ever. I love his style, his wit, his dark comedy, his over the top characters, his hip dialogue… I could really go […]

THE LION KING

A lot of people like to write off animated films as simple, mindless films made for children. Unlike a lot of other genres and technological advancements in film, animation occupies a special spot in it all. It’s the only thing that really gives you endless possibilities to […]

Comedy is a genre that relies greatly on its stars. Sure, the writer’s jokes need to be funny, but the actors need to make us laugh with the right timing and delivery. A comedy film can get by with a rote plot and characters because those funny […]

CRAWL

There are two very limited horror/thriller subgenres that I love and those are the “killer animal/monster” genre and the “person/people trapped in one location and trying to survive” genre, but they’re not often combined. A majority of horror films back in the day fell into the B-movie […]

You think Disney and Marvel Studios would really stop milking that cow? Of course, there’s more in store! Just because […]

TOY STORY 4

WARNING: Mild spoilers ahead!  The Toy Story franchise is basically one that’s grown up along with me. I have vague memories of the seeing the original in theaters when I was only 4-years-old and I saw both sequels in theaters. Toy Story 3 came 11 years after the second one and told […]

ANNABELLE COMES HOME

The “killer doll” subgenre of horror movies is definitely on the lower end of the quality spectrum. The only real successful one was Chucky, with everybody else after feeling like a cheap imitator. While the original and new Child’s Play film showed a doll could be threatening, although it’s […]

CHILD’S PLAY (2019)

Pretty much every horror movie has been remade now, so when a Child’s Play remake was inevitably announced, everyone at this point just sighed and said, “Okay, whatever. We all know it’ll suck.” To make things seem even worse for this movie, the whole reason it exists is kind […]
