Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Review

Whoever made the trailer for this did a great job. It really intrigued me with the espionage vibes. Who can say no to Jude Law and Johnny Depp in the same movie? Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald put the actual beasts on the bench. This time around they focus on the political war between the enigmatic Grindelwald, who wants pure-blood wizards to control the world. I love how they expand … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Review

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Review

When this movie released, I wasn’t happy. Such spin off properties are cheap cash-ins in my eyes. Nonetheless, my fiancée and I saw it in theaters. Maybe my predisposed attitude towards the film made the experience unpleasant. Fast forward to the year 2022, a year still wrought with the One-Nine. We at home on HBO Max and decide to give Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Review

Ernest Scared Stupid (1991) Review

Before I found out who Jim Carrey was, Jim Varney was one of the funniest guys on TV. Every weekend I saw a movie titled under his comedic moniker, Ernest. However, there is one film that stood out from all the rest and that is Ernest Scared Stupid. Released in October 1991, it is about a foolish man and his dog Rimshot, fighting to save … Continue reading Ernest Scared Stupid (1991) Review

The situation seems a lot more dire. … Continue reading Halloweentown II (2001) Review

Halloweentown (1998) Review

Disney had the best direct to television movies in the 90s. Halloweentown was a hit during the holiday, especially during it’s release. A movie full of traditional monsters presented in a lighthearted manner. The monsters were whimsical, colorful, and goofy. Marnie, an overoptimistic teenager, discovers she is a witch on Halloween. Her grandmother, Aggie (Debbie Reynolds) enlists her help in combating dark forces that threaten … Continue reading Halloweentown (1998) Review

Don’t Look Under The Bed (1999) Review

Disney had some pretty good original movies when I was a kid. Don’t Look Under The Bed is by far one of the most creepy. It probably won’t have you screaming but you will be unsettled. A teenage girl enlists the help of an imaginary friend to help fend off a bogeyman. It’s a simple premise full of corny one-liners, jokes, and cool effect sequences. … Continue reading Don’t Look Under The Bed (1999) Review
