Posted: April 23, 2013 at 8:14 am   /   Local, Television

A new 13-episode television series from Netflix is sure to have viewers talking. The only thing that I question is whether they will think it’s good or bad. Hemlock Grove was released on Netflix on Friday, April 19. The 13-episode series features a cast of virtually unknowns, besides Famke Janssen and Lili Taylor. I have […]

Matt Reeves is one more good movie away from being a director that I am looking forward to seeing what he has next on his plate.  I really enjoyed CLOVERFIELD.  Sometimes it was difficult to watch, but overall I thought it was a great monster flick.  Then he came out with LET ME IN, a […]

Let Me In

Ever since this remake of the Swedish film, Let the Right One In, was announced I’ve encountered nothing but trepidation. Why? Well, because the original film was about as perfect as you can get within the genre. It had perfect tone, great acting, and beautiful visuals.

“Let Me In” is not exactly my most anticipated film this Fall. I really was surprised at how great the original was that I’m not sure if anything new can really be brought to the table. The marketing for the film is starting to pick up as the release date slowly creeps up on us. […]

If you haven’t seen the phenomenal Swedish film, Let the Right One In, what are you waiting for? It was one of the most celebrated releases a couple years ago, and it was so good that American studios rushed to make a remake for American audiences. I’m not sure this one will be as good, […]

With the current glut of vampire movies it is easy to miss a film like Daybreakers. It doesn’t romanticize the creatures that until recently were considered monsters, but it does give them a bit of humanity. It surely isn’t a film that is aimed at the Twilight crowd, and with an January release it doesn’t […]

Chan-wook Park’s entry into the vampire genre is one of the fresher and more interesting entries into the genre yet is a bit uneven to be an absolute success. Following Sang-hyun, a young and giving priest who does nothing but good for his community secretly doubts the failing world he lives in.  Making the almost […]
