I love really any kind of horror film, as long as it’s well done with what it wants to do. If there’s one genre that really doesn’t need to worry about being character driven, it’s horror. It relies more on atmosphere and suspense to keep you engrossed, rather than […]

MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL

I’ve always looked at Men in Black as a sort of Ghostbusters, except with aliens. It’s not really about the plot, but about the characters and how they interact with each other, as well as the crazy world around them. Since they only focused on two characters, Men in Black always fell […]

It’s always interesting when directors branch out of their comfort zone, especially when they’re sometimes so far away from it. I gotta say, going from drama to horror would be especially tough. While they can certainly have characters and story, horror films are more about the experience over emotional […]

MISSING LINK

I don’t often see animated films in theaters. I don’t have a bias against animation or anything, but when they come out, there’s usually something more interesting to check out. However, I always make room for the stop-motion maestros at Laika Studios. From horror, to comedy, to […]

MISS BALA

Boring films are the worst kind because whether it be good or bad, a film should above all be memorable. Even if it’s marred by poor acting, direction, and everything else, that can all potentially make for an entertaining and memorable experience. Those are the best kinds of […]

Mid90s

Ah, the joys (a relative term here, I’m sure) of growing up. Trying to figure out who you really were, all while trying to fit in and mold yourself into anything just to find some sort of acceptance. Getting angry at your parents for wanting the best […]

“Style over substance.” It’s a catchy criticism often attributed to more artsy, avant-garde films that like to focus more on visuals, mood, and atmosphere, as opposed to conventional story and characterization. While I find the criticism a bit too simplistic and unfair when it comes to judging films, […]

MILE 22

I admit that I can be a bit of a hypocrite sometimes. One of my biggest annoyances with a vast majority of the general movie going audience is that they want to see a movie because of “all the stars that are in it.” I’m a big […]

THE MEG

I love me a good killer shark movie. It’s one of those specific, very limited subgenres that I love. That doesn’t mean I love over the top trash like Sharknado. I just want some good, classic schlock of sharks munchin’ on people. Jaws is of course the best. A masterclass in […]

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT

Action films seem to get a bad rap from some people. They’re often criticized for being light on plot, characterization, and thematic depth, which they often are. However, people seem to forget that terrible films exist in every genre. Drama films are usually the most lauded, but you don’t […]
