It seems that at least once or twice a year, the distribution of a shark movie with a theatrical run meets the needs of the masses to see their share of carnage (tiding them over until the next film of course,) and this year’s installment meant to fulfill that need was Johannes Roberts’ “47 Meters […]

What if Superman were evil? What if there was no hero to stop the villain? Sounds like a dark thought to me. Well, that’s exactly what Brightburn – the new film from writers Brian and Mark Gunn – is all about. If the Gunn name makes you think of James, don’t worry – he’s the […]

Review: ‘The Intruder’ Starring Meagan Good, Michael Ealy, Dennis Quaid

Posted: May 3, 2019 at 7:05 am   /   Movie Reviews

The Intruder is the kind of movie that I went into with little to no expectations, yet it still delivers even less. It’s this year’s Breaking In (review), in which we get a cookie-cutter home-invasion movie that serves us nothing more than cheap tricks. The plot is simple. Scott (Michael Ealy) is a young and […]

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 […]

57: ‘November Man’ and ‘As Above/So Below’

Posted: September 2, 2014 at 12:26 pm   /   Film, Local, Reel Spoilers

Episode #57 is a twofer as we spoil both The November Man and As Above/So Below. And, just to make things more enticing, we didn’t really care for either. We always do our best work when we don’t like a movie and we have some head-scratching questions about both films. All this plus a Video […]
