The Tomorrow War (2021) Review

My expectations were low for this movie. I’m a Chris Pratt fan and watched it off his star power alone. I saw no trailers and went in blind. After viewing it this Fourth of July weekend, I can say The Tomorrow War is worth seeing. It is a pleasant surprise with heart, humor, and a great special effects budget. Seriously, the monsters are a fucking … Continue reading The Tomorrow War (2021) Review

Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Review

I want more monster fights and less humans! Millie Bobby Brown is great but did not need to be in this movie. Her little “side mission” with her friend from school and the strange man off the internet was reminiscent of The Goonies. Yet added nothing to the overall story. GvK (Godzilla vs. Kong) is the fourth film in the monster franchise, starting with Gareth … Continue reading Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Review

Shin Godzilla (2016) Review

This is the best Godzilla movie I’ve ever seen. Period. It’s a return to form for the franchise. The titan was presented in a surprising and unconventional way. Instead of having giant reptilian scales, the exterior of the creature is rocky and volcanic. It was very alien and reminded me of John Carpenter’s The Thing from 1982. Can you say destruction? I haven’t seen a … Continue reading Shin Godzilla (2016) Review

PG: Psycho Goreman (2020) Review

Children of the 90s are going to love this. Psycho Goreman is the love child of Jeepers Creepers and Goldar. He’s a monster that takes pleasure in murdering people, all while being a complete goofball. This film is not to be taken seriously, its a tongue-in-cheek parody of the genre. Think of it as an R-rated Power Rangers on cocaine. The makeup/effects are mostly practical … Continue reading PG: Psycho Goreman (2020) Review

Color Out of Space (2019) Review

Let me save you a little time. GO WATCH THIS NOW!!! This is a true Lovecraft inspired acid trip. Nicholas Cage plays the patriarch of a small farm. He has a wife and two kids. It’s the usual nuclear family trope of the supportive wife, the good kid, and the rebellious sibling. Despite that, the characters have some complexity. This is established through dialogue and … Continue reading Color Out of Space (2019) Review

The Girl With All The Gifts (2016) Review

I’m so glad to see the zombie genre isn’t dead. This is the most unique take on the classic monster that I’ve seen to date. The Girl With All The Gifts is a simple but satisfying story about the fight for humanity. The future of mankind rest with a girl named Melanie (Sennia Nanua). The film was originally released in the United Kingdom. It’s a … Continue reading The Girl With All The Gifts (2016) Review

V/H/S (2012) Review

I’m usually not a fan of found footage films, but V/H/S made me a believer. It’s an anthology film of some pretty fucked up stories. Perfect movie to watch when you have company over. There are jump scares. However, the most terrifying part is the reveal at the end of each short. You may think you know how it’s going to end, but you don’t. … Continue reading V/H/S (2012) Review

Aliens (1986) Review

If I only had one word to describe Aliens, it would be tension. They really revved up the creepy horror element in this sequel. Even if you didn’t see the first film, the dialogue does a good job bringing you up to speed. The long head Xenomorphs are back and even scarier. They aren’t like other predatory creatures that kill for sport, they have an … Continue reading Aliens (1986) Review

The Thing (1982) Review

Let me tell you something, CG animation will NEVER look as good as practical effects. The Thing has the most disgusting, disturbing, and downright terrible creatures I’ve ever seen. It was a true monster flick full of suspenseful moments. Imagine if Clue and Slither had a love child. It’s a good time and a film that still holds up in 2020. Kurt Russell and Keith … Continue reading The Thing (1982) Review
