SDCC 2017: Kingsman The Golden Circle

An Archer-Kingsman crossover was something that never really crossed my mind, but it makes perfect sense, especially after seeing it in action. The opening clip began with Eggsy running on rooftops and leaping from building to building, only it was in animated form. Very similar to the style of Archer. Eggsy finally arrives at Kingsman, but […]

All good things must come to an end and all Mockingjays must have their part 2.  And it all felt like it came and went so quickly.  Just a mere 3 and a half years following the first film, here we were with a fourth (extra film to be honest) and final chapter.  It was […]

Maggie’s Plan (Blu-ray Review)

Maggie’s Plan is a modern screwball romantic comedy that deals with another neurotic Greta Gerwig character. Gerwig is the central character of the film and this comedy directed and written by Rebecca Miller certainly wants you to invest in her. It plays as a film about intellectuals, but does nothing but show how incapable these […]

Cronenberg Draws Up Satirical ‘Maps To The Stars’ (Movie Review)

Leave it to director David Cronenberg (The Fly, A History of Violence) to spend decades making studio films outside of Hollywood, only to finally shoot a film in Hollywood that looks to take it down.  Of course, it would help if this acerbic, satirical take on Hollywood culture was a little more attuned to the […]

Seventh Son Is An Epic Mess (Movie Review)

Seventh Son is a mess of familiar ideas, talented actors, and competent (but mostly ugly) visual effects; all brought together into one horrible movie.  There are various ways to approach a review for a movie like this, most of which involve making fun of it, and honestly, this is the kind of movie that has […]

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’ Successfully Sparks The Beginning Of The End (Movie Review)

Here is another critic-proof blockbuster that happens to be an entry in a series I very much enjoy.  With movies that not only have a massive amount of hype, but are also a part of an ongoing franchise, there really is not much to lose when writing about them.  I am not going to focus […]

What About ‘Non-Stop’ Though? (Movie Review)

It is fun to see how much credibility an actor with gravitas can bring to a really silly film.  Liam Neeson has returned to the action/thriller realm once again to star in an airplane-hijacking film, with twists and turns that go way too far in terms of being plausible.  It matters little though, as the […]

Carrie (Blu-ray Review)

While I’m a huge Stephen King fan, Carrie is oddly one of his novels that I’ve never read for some strange reason as I think about it now.  Well, that’s definitely going to get added to the bucket list.  I can’t die with that on my conscious.  But anyway, that kind of preludes as to […]
