Respect (2021) Review

Whoever was in charge of marketing needs they ass whooped. I had no idea there was a theatrical release. I jumped at the chance to rent it on vod (video-on-demand). Aretha Franklin is an American icon! She's done so much for both music and civil rights. She personally handpicked Jennifer Hudson to play this role.…

The Butcher of Plainfield (2007) Review

Whatever you do, avoid Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield. I had a feeling this movie was going to be bad but I didn't know how bad. For those who don't know, Ed Gein was a real person and one sick bastard. He inspired the creation of fictional villains such as Hannibal, Norman Bates, and…

His House (2020) Review

Netflix really stepped their game up this year. From foreign films to indie horror. His House is a about a married couple that escaped South Sudan to seek refuge in London. It is full of jump scares and suspense. Don't expect your typical monster movie. This narrative is told from the perspective of not one…

Dead Presidents (1995) Review

Any film centered around Vietnam is bound to have a horrible backstory attached. Dead Presidents is no different. It may not be considered a scary movie but its a not too distant cousin. The story is about a veteran struggling to provide for his family. Anthony (Larenz Tate) delivered a captivating performance in this cult…

The Invisible Man (2020) Review

This might be one of the best movies of 2020. I purchased this when it was available on-demand. It was a whole vibe and a scary one at that. Listen, Leigh Whannell knows how to make some horror. Do you understand me? This man has written for two of my beloved franchises; SaW and Insidious.…

The Walking Dead S10E22

The council reneged on their promise to Negan. He escaped prison/came back, saved Judith in a snow storm, and infiltrated The Whisperers to kill Alpha. So they repay him with exile to some ole dusty ass shack. At this point, if he snaps out, it's going to be hard to have sympathy for the survivors.…

The Walking Dead S10E21

I don't know what the hell was going on in "Diverged." It is the most lacking in narrative. There's some weird energy between Carol and Daryl. Their relationship is weird as hell. Clearly people are still upset with Carol and the choices she made for the greater good. Even Jerry tried to be passive aggressive…

Fear Street: Part 2 – 1978 (2021) Review

These FEAR Street movies keep getting better. Comparing the first one, FEAR Street: Part One - 1994, I think 1978 is the superior film. When it comes to originality, there's much to be desired. It clearly paid homage to the Friday the 13th franchise. However, there's enough character development and subplots that prevent it from…

The Woman In The Window (2021) Review

Amy Adams has been involved with some of my favorite films. From Man of Steel to Arrival. One day I was on YouTube and came across the trailer for this Netflix original. When I saw Gary Oldman was involved, my mind was made up. The title tells you everything you need to know, except for…

Pose (2021) Season 3 Review

For years, I've seen the music industry evolve at lightning speed, as pop trends, came and went. From TikTok dances to catch phrases used all over social media. It seemed like every other day, some YouTube vlogger was talking about someone "giving them [insert noun] tease, serving body, spilling tea, etc." Most if not all…
