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 […]

HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U

I’ve talked about sequels and their effects of diminishing returns many times before. It’s rare that sequels are better than the original, but it does happen. What’s even more rare is when a sequel completely abandons the conventions and genre that was established before. Evil Dead II is one […]

THE HATE U GIVE

It seems like every year there’s a specific social issue that a lot of filmmakers (or vapid studio heads just following trends) want to focus on. Last year seemed to be the theme of “sticking it to the oppressors”, with popular films like Darkest Hour, The Greatest Showman, and The […]

HALLOWEEN (2018)

I don’t know if I have exactly one single film as my favorite of all time, but I certainly have plenty that I would consider my favorites. John Carpenter’s Halloween is one of those films. First seeing it when I was only 10 years old, it had a massive […]

HEREDITARY

As much as I love horror, it takes a specific combination of certain elements in order for it to scare me. For instance, I don’t find demonic or supernatural stuff very scary. While I can acknowledge that The Exorcist is one of the finest horror films of all time, […]

THE HURRICANE HEIST

When it comes to most schlocky action films, you know exactly what you’re going to get: a whole lot of nothing but stupid ridiculousness. Is it going to be well made stupid ridiculousness, though? That’s the key, but not often the case. You’re obviously not going to get any thematic depth from any of […]

HAPPY DEATH DAY

Is there such thing as a completely original idea anymore? I don’t really think so. Humans have been telling stories ever since we’ve been able to speak, so it’s not a surprise that we run into some familiarities here and there. Every type of story has been […]

HEADSHOT

It somewhat annoys me when people only watch movies because “of the stars that are in it”, because there are loads of movies with “stars” that are terrible. A good screenplay, director, and many other collaborators are what makes, or breaks, a film. That’s not to discredit actors who can elevate […]

HIDDEN FIGURES

Handling heavy subjects, such as racial inequality, requires a certain amount of tact. You need to make your point, but you don’t want to get too overt to where you lose focus on your characters and the story at hand. Many films strive to make a great […]

HACKSAW RIDGE

He’s baaaaaaaaaaaaack! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. America’s sweetheart Mel Gibson is back behind the camera after a decade long hiatus and he’s better than ever. After his drunken tirade in 2006 caused his stardom to spiral downward, we all thought we had seen the end of […]
