FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD

When making a film, worldbuilding can be an incredible tool. Whether it’s completely grounded in reality, totally fantastical, or somewhere in between, thoughtful worldbuilding can make a movie feel alive. It’s great joining characters on their journey, but it’s even more exciting when we’re experiencing a whole […]

THE NIGHT COMES FOR US

Whenever a movie comes out that a lot of people describe as “non-stop action”, they’re usually exaggerating. There’s certainly some action throughout, but it rarely ever meets the definition of “non-stop”, as the pace is usually broken up by dialogue and plot developments. The dialogue and plot […]

VENOM

Sony, aka Columbia Pictures, just might be the most embarrassing and shameless of the Big Six movie studios. They used to be on top of the comic book movie game with their original Spider-Man films, but ever since the massive success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), they’ve been playing […]

MANDY

“Style over substance.” It’s a catchy criticism often attributed to more artsy, avant-garde films that like to focus more on visuals, mood, and atmosphere, as opposed to conventional story and characterization.

THE PREDATOR

The Predator is probably the coolest movie monster ever made. Designed by the legendary Stan Winston and his company, it’s a marvel in prosthetic special effects and alien design.

PEPPERMINT

When I watch a revenge movie, I simply want one thing: the protagonist to get their revenge. Seems like a pretty simple thing for the filmmaker to accomplish, right? Well, not lately. Over the past few years, I’ve felt a little bit blue balled by genre. They […]

MILE 22

I admit that I can be a bit of a hypocrite sometimes. One of my biggest annoyances with a vast majority of the general movie going audience is that they want to see a movie because of “all the stars that are in it.” I’m a big […]

THE MEG

I love me a good killer shark movie. It’s one of those specific, very limited subgenres that I love. That doesn’t mean I love over the top trash like Sharknado. I just want some good, classic schlock of sharks munchin’ on people. Jaws is of course the best. A masterclass in […]

TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES

I’m sure I’m not alone (although still in the minority) in that I’m sick of comic book films. There’s just too many of them each year and with some rare exceptions, they all feel pretty much exactly the same: superhero(es) need to defeat the bad guy(s) and […]
