Movie Review: ‘Pet Sematary’ Remake is Creepy Good Time

Posted: April 4, 2019 at 4:24 pm   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

Sometimes dead is better. And, sometimes remakes actually are too. Pet Sematary remains one of Stephen King’s most troubling novels. It’s so scary and devastating because it deals with a subject that most of us are uncomfortable with, death. King’s 1983 novel troubled him so much that he almost tossed it after writing it in […]

Movie Review: Tim Burton’s DUMBO Never Truly Takes Flight

Posted: March 29, 2019 at 7:01 am   /   Movie Reviews

The Disney live-action remake initiative has been an interesting project that’s sparked many debates amongst me and my peers.  While many have made somewhat fair arguments that these remakes are nothing more than cash grabs and nothing else, I’ve argued that advancements in technology over the years at least allows for more creative direction with […]

The old saying a movie is never as good as the book once again holds true with The Dirt, the new Netflix film based of the best-selling autobiography of Motley Crue. While the movie doesn’t live up to the book, it’s still not all bad. There just isn’t a whole lot of good either. Let’s […]

Review: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss

Posted: March 21, 2019 at 12:20 pm   /   Movie Reviews

In 2017, Jordan Peele surprised the hell out of the world with his first feature-length film (and one of my favorites of the year), GET OUT. Two years and one Oscar win later, audiences are clamoring for his next feature titled US which is marketed as “a new nightmare from Jordan Peele.” …and what a […]

Movie Review: ‘Greta’ Starring Isabelle Huppert, Chloë Grace Moretz, Maika Monroe

Posted: March 1, 2019 at 10:13 am   /   Movie Reviews

For the first time in quite a while, I went to a see movie without knowing much of anything about it – that movie being Greta. I knew it starred Chloe Grace Moretz, whom I’ve been fond of since her breakout roles in 500 Days of Summer and more notably, Kick-Ass, and that the film […]

Heading to the theater to see the screening of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, two things raced through my mind: Could the movie provide a satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy? and Am I going to die in this pending ice storm that’s supposed to hit tonight?

Posted: February 21, 2019 at 7:52 am   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Movie Studios has given us no reason to think any film that comes out of their camp will be any good. From box office duds like The Marine and 12 Rounds, and a plethora of straight to DVD films, the company does not have a credible track record. Well, maybe that […]
