Underworld: Blood Wars (2016) Review

I've been a fan of this franchise since it came out. I myself have always been a werewolf guy. Vampires are cool but they suck. Underworld: Blood Wars is a fun movie! Sure the narrative lacks in dimension but what do you expect from this type of genre in 2017? Vampires and werewolves fighting for survival in one…

Doctor Strange (2016) Review

I've never taken psychedelic drugs but if I did it would probably be similar to watching this film. Doctor Strange was an awesome journey through the world of mystical sorcery. It is like watching a more mature version of Harry Potter without wands. Benjamin Cumberbatch delivers a stellar performance as Doctor Steven Strange. Chiwetel Ejiofor brought his…

Channel Zero: Candle Cove (2016) Review

As you can tell from the above image, this is show is creepy as hell. This should not come as a surprise being that it is based on the creepypasta called Candle Cove, written by web-cartoonist and author, Kris Straub in 2009. What is creepypasta you say? It is a collection of online horror fiction and images…

Hidden Figures (2016) Review

What an awesome film! This is the story America needs right now. Hidden Figures was a phenomenal movie that I really enjoyed watching. It features a star-studded cast of Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monáe, Mahershala Ali, Kevin Costner, and Kirsten Dunst. Need I say more? So much talent here and they all play off each other…

Deepwater Horizon (2016) Review

From the opening scene, I could tell this wasn't gonna be a feel good movie. We get some foreshadowing of what's to come from a little girl puncturing a soda can. Deepwater Horizon is a film based on true events. A man-made disaster that occurred April 20, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico. An oil rig in…

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Review

I've seen war films before but none like this. My perception of the Star Wars cinematic universe has changed on so many levels. After watching this, I've come to appreciate the classics even more. It was very gritty, grounded, dramatic, and methodical. I would really like to see more spin-off stories like this one. Fortunately,…

The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) Review

This is my first horror film review. I'm excited to write about The Autopsy of Jane Doe written by Ian B. Goldberg and Richard Naing. It is directed by André Øvredal, who brought me one of my favorite indie films, Troll Hunter. So going into this I had high expectations and let me tell you it did not…

Fences (2016) Review

Shut the front door! I was completely blown away. Fences is a phenomenal film directed by Denzel Washington and written by August Wilson. Prior to seeing this, I had no knowledge of what this was about. All I had to go off was the awesome trailer. Denzel Washington gave a historic performance as Troy Maxson, a hard-working father…

X-MEN Apocalypse (2016) Review

If you didn't know, I'm a big fan of comic books. X-MEN played a major role in my upbringing. It was one of my favorite cartoons to watch in the 90's. When I heard this film was coming out I lost my mind. Everyday I'd search the Internet for information about how the big baddie,…
