HELLBOY (2019)

Reboots, remakes, and all that have every reason in the world to make people apprehensive about them. Like usual, pretty much everyone was apprehensive about the Hellboy reboot, but there were things here and there that made me somewhat interested. I really enjoyed Neil Marshall’s other films, with stuff like Dog Soldiers and Doomsday being […]

SHAZAM!

With the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), Warner Bros. has not only tried to copy Marvel’s success with their own cinematic universe (MCU), but with a more grim and dark tone in an attempt to set it apart. The MCU is all about fun, quips, and bright colors, with the DCEU occupying […]

DUMBO

Boy, oh, boy, is Disney just absolutely going ham with these live-action remakes. If 2010’s Alice in Wonderland told us anything, it’s that a $1 billion worth of people will flock to the theaters for such a thing. Some of these animated classics seem ripe for live action remakes, […]

GRETA

Nothing elevates a silly B-movie quite like the stars. Just look at stuff like The Evil Dead and Tremors. Both absurd, over the top films, made even more fun with excellent lead performances from Bruce Campbell and Kevin Bacon. Those are mere outliers, though, as a majority of B-movies […]

FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY

While I do find it amusing overall, I’m not really a wrestling fan, or really a big fan of any sport. My closest connection to the sport is through my older brother watching WWF and then him performing the various moves on me. To be honest, I […]

A STAR IS BORN

“Remake” is the kind of word that just puts a bad taste in your mouth, making you want to spit. What’s the point of telling the same story that’s already been told, right? Well, I agree, but humans have been telling pretty much the same dozen or […]

ROMA

Understated film direction often doesn’t get the credit it deserves. When some people look for “good direction”, they look for something with a lot of style, action, and just a lot of stuff going on in the camera in general. That’s certainly all direction, but people seem […]
