KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

Some genres as we know them are effectively dead, or at the very least, on life support. Every now and then, a genre film will be released in order to rejuvenate those feelings that old Hollywood used to give us. While they’re fun, we realize why these […]

AMERICAN ASSASSIN

*sniff sniff* You smell that? What is that awful stench? Wait… I think I see something coming over the horizon!  Oh, it’s the dump month that we call September! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as the summer movie season comes to a close, the studios start dumping their more forgettable […]

THE DARK TOWER

It’s finally here, folks. The long awaited adaptation to Stephen King’s self-proclaimed magnum opus, The Dark Tower… a book series that I’ve never read. I’ve actually never read any Stephen King novel before. I’ve seen quite a few films based off his works, however. Did you know he directed a film once? It’s called Maximum […]

Ever since John Wick came out of nowhere to blow everybody away back in 2014, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the next projects from directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski. Stahelski went on to make John Wick: Chapter 2, delivering one of the best action film sequels of all time (and my […]

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, he gets rebooted like no one else can. Remember how much of a big deal the first Spider-Man film was back in 2002? After the superhero film genre pretty much petered out after failures like Batman & Robin, Sam Raimi came around and showed us that superheroes could be taken seriously […]

BABY DRIVER

Car chases are awesome. There’s simply no doubt about that. I don’t know what it is, but watching somebody so skilled behind the wheel perform incredible (and often dangerous) stunts is so exhilarating. They’re a staple of action cinema. Edgar Wright is also awesome. He’s a smart […]

TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT

Here we go again, folks. Another Michael Bay Transformers film has come crashing back onto the big screen. “But Hunter, you hate these movies. Why do you continue to watch them?” Well, I do hate these movies. I never even saw the previous film with the dinosaur […]

THE MUMMY

Thanks to Disney and Marvel, cinematic universes are all the rage now! Ever since The Avengers made a billion dollars and proved huge, expansive universes could be successful, every other movie studio scrounged up whatever properties they could in order to have their own interconnected franchises. It’s gone […]
