    Netflix’s ‘1922’ (2017) is Haunting and Bleak

    In “1922”, a man murders his wife with the help of his son in order to keep her from selling their wealth of farmland. It’s a messy, bloody affair; the two hold her down as the father slashes clumsily and violently into her throat. It’s incredibly upsetting, and that’s...

    Happy Death Day (2017) is a Little Too “Happy”

    Waking up for many people every day is a problem – but dying every night and then still having to wake up the next morning? Now that would be an issue for just about anyone. In Happy Death Day, this is exactly what happens. On her birthday, Tree (yes,...

    It (2017) – Review

    eyThis is bound to trigger many people, and for that, I’m sorry. But I’ve got to say it regardless. The torch has been passed, and the definitive face of Pennywise comes in the shape of Bill Skarsgard. The 2017 It reboot has shattered all expectations – and those expectations were exceedingly...

    Review: The Dark Tower (2017)

    A lot of Stephen King film adaptations are pretty bad, and you know what? That’s fine. Many that miss the mark were based on pulpy short stories, and have to find clumsy ways to take a great idea and make it into a watchable movie. Many of these are...

    Review – Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

    Spidey is back in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and it’s a fresh, welcome take on a long-running superhero. While many have complained that we don’t “need” another Spider-Man movie – we actually don’t, if they’re going to tell the same exact story – Marvel makes the right choice and gives us a film...

    ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ is Nothing Short of Amazing

    The first role I had ever seen Chris Pratt in was the pilot episode of Parks and Recreation. A chubby, lazy, and dimwitted loser, the character of Andy Dwyer somehow managed to take all of these traits and turn them into something so loveable and endearing that it was almost obscene. Watching...

    Review – The Belko Experiment (2017)

    James Gunn, who wrote the screenplay for Blumhouse Tilt’s newest big screen outing, is clearly trying to make a statement. What that statement is, however, is not very clear. And I don’t mean that it’s ambiguous; I mean that there is clearly a sense of social satire, but The Belko...

    Review – A Cure For Wellness (2017)

    Truth be told, I have a fondness for horror movies that actually seem quite familiar. I’m not one who is entirely against cliches; crass as it may sound, they are cliches for a reason. And that reason is there is something about them that keeps people coming back to...

    Movies were excited for in 2017

    At the start of a bright, shiny new year is a lot of hope. Hope for a better year than the last, but mostly hope for better entertainment in the year to come.  2016 didn’t disappoint us when it came to giving us good movies, so it stands to...
