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 […]

DETROIT

You have to be wary of those films out there that are marketed as, “The terrifying secret you never knew behind this big historical event.” 99% of the time it rings completely hollow and the films are usually just falsely crafted narratives to increase dramatic tension. There’s always that 1%, […]

ATOMIC BLONDE

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 […]

DUNKIRK

I’ve always found Christopher Nolan the director to be much stronger than Christopher Nolan the screenwriter. The man has a wonderful vision that he expertly brings to the big screen with an immense level of technical craft, but when it comes to actually executing the story the […]

THE BIG SICK

Ah, romantic comedies. No other genre fills people with so much naïve hope and then with eventual heartbreak and realization. They often feel very phony, with two stars with hardly any chemistry both serving up a predictable and safe plot, with hardly an realism or consequence. Sure, […]

WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES

Remember back in 2009 when a reboot was announced for the Planet of the Apes series that would chronicle the rise of the apes, and everybody rightfully laughed? Do you remember when it actually turned out to be quite good? Then the sequel was even better? The new Planet of […]

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 […]

IT COMES AT NIGHT

One of the main criticisms levied against horror films is that they’re often devoid of any sort of characterization, story, or thematic depth. Sure, the main intent is to scare you and if a horror film does so, it technically succeeds, but where’s the fun if there’s […]
