OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL

Completely studio driven horror films are usually nothing but trash. I don’t think one person in the world was begging for a follow-up to 2014’s allegedly awful Ouija. It did make a lot of money, though, so of course Universal was quick to get a sequel, or […]

JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK

I love Tom Cruise. I think he’s an absolute crazy person, but as an actor and movie star, he’s always a treat to watch. Sure, he may be somewhat typecast as “Tom Cruise action man”, but the guy oozes so much charisma and charm, you can’t take […]

THE BIRTH OF A NATION

Making a film about an iconic historical figure is like walking on thin ice. That ice is even thinner, and the water even deeper, when that certain figure is looked at with a degree of controversy. Obviously, it depends on the filmmaker and their intention, but in […]

MASTERMINDS

Sometimes comedy films are tough to review, especially when you don’t like them. It’s somewhat hard to elaborate on why something just isn’t funny. Comedy is the most subjective of genres, so what others find funny, I may find absolutely grating. Based on a true story (my […]

THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (2016)

I’m ashamed to admit that I have not seen the original 1960 The Magnificent Seven. I’m even more ashamed to admit that I have also not seen Seven Samurai, the 1953 Japanese film the old Western is based off. I understand that they’re both iconic films, each […]

GOAT

I don’t understand fraternities and their hazing. I really don’t. Dehumanizing and humiliating others as some sort of “rite of passage” is completely baffling to me. It’s even more baffling that these impressionable kids will put themselves through it in order to just gain some sort of […]

BLAIR WITCH

I remember being a wee lad when a huge new horror film, called The Blair Witch Project, came out. Being a huge fan of horror films, but never seeing them in theaters at the time, I heard endlessly about “the scariest movie ever made”, how people thought […]

SULLY

I’m not a big fan of clearly manufactured drama of true events. When the famous plane landing in the Hudson River happened, all I remember was that Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger successfully landed the plane, was lauded as a hero, and that was pretty much it. There […]

DON’T BREATHE

I love horror films so, so much. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it was watching Scream at the young age of six, or John Carpenter’s Halloween when I was ten, that warped my fragile little mind. There’s just something about the fact that a simple […]

WAR DOGS

You really have to be careful when a film promotes itself to be “based on a true story/events/moments/experiences/accounts/anecdotes/etc.” While yes, there may have once been a priest who performed an “exorcism”, I highly doubt it got to the ridiculous heights of people spewing projectile blood from their […]
