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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

SERENITY

DISCLAIMER: This review contains massive spoilers for Serenity, as it’s impossible to talk about why it’s so bad without getting into the details. You’ve been warned, but you probably don’t care to see it anyway, as it bombed terribly. Anyway, here we go. Ahhhhh, the glory of […]

GLASS

Now that everybody is clear on what it’s all about (and if you don’t know and get mad about this, it’s really your fault), I can finally talk more about M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. I wasn’t a big fan of it, and a big reason why was during […]

ESCAPE ROOM

Happy New Year, everybody! Well, at least it is a happy new year for a few days until that first Friday… that first Friday when a movie studio dumps whatever film they’re too embarrassed to release at any other time of the year. Oh, yes, it’s the Dump Month of January, […]

BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE

Actors. What would we do without them? If we didn’t have vain people wanting to put themselves in front of the camera for our amusement, then we wouldn’t have film and television. However, their job is to act. With some exceptions, they’re not there to write, direct, […]

BREAKING IN

As much as I love a film that has an engrossing story and deep characterization, I love silly schlock just as much. I have no biases when it comes to film. Drama, horror, comedy, science fiction, porn, action, thriller, you name it. A good film is a good […]

BEST F(R)IENDS: VOLUME ONE

Who doesn’t love Tommy Wiseau’s trashterpiece The Room? Considered by many “the best bad movie ever made”, the reason why is because of the sheer amount of passion that went into it. Passion doesn’t really mean a whole lot, if you don’t have the talent to back it up, though. The Room is evidence of that, […]

UNSANE

Over the last century, the basics of filmmaking have remained rather unchanged. You need a camera, some actors to be in front of it, some lights to light your actors, crew members to assist in various ways, and so on and so forth. While the basics are […]
