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

The Little Things (2021) Review

This is the worst movie I’ve seen Denzel Washington in. It’s sad because it showed such promise. With 3 academy award winners at their disposal, it seemed like a shoo-in for success. It has many similarities to Seven. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come close to capturing the magic of the film in any way. The Little Things doesn’t have the flare of a studio backed project. … Continue reading The Little Things (2021) Review

Deliver Us From Evil (2014) Review

Two of my favorite genres working together: crime drama and horror. It’s rare you find a film where they’re married properly. Deliver Us From Evil is about a NY policeman investigating a series of murders linked to demonic possession. It’s a contemporary take on the classic Exorcist theme but differs in execution. Sarchie (Eric Bana) and Mendoza (Edgar Ramirez) team up to combat the unholy … Continue reading Deliver Us From Evil (2014) Review

Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988) Review

I present to you the film that introduced me to BDSM, Hellbound: Hellraiser II. Another creation from the man that brought you Candyman, Clive Barker. It is far different from any horror movie I’ve ever seen. Although it is a slasher, there is something high art about it. The muted colors and cinematography embody a Gothic or art decor aesthetic. The movie is a continuation … Continue reading Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988) Review

Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh (1995) Review

Enough of the PG stuff, we’re back to the R-rated debauchery. There’s no better way to celebrate the Halloween spirit than to watch Candyman: Farewell to The Flesh. To me, it came off as a soft reboot. It’s completely removed from the previous film that took place in Chicago. Now the vengeful specter has somehow traveled to New Orleans. C.M. (Candyman) is a lot more … Continue reading Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh (1995) Review

Joker (2019) Review

What the hell did I just watch? That is the question I asked myself while leaving the theater. It took me a while to process the madness I witnessed. This is not a movie about people in tights and capes. Joker is a cinematic masterpiece. One that everyone should see. It is raw, unadulterated, visceral, and shockingly relatable. Joaquin Phoenix better get nominated for this … Continue reading Joker (2019) Review
