REview – Jacob’s Ladder (2019)

David Rosenthal’s reboot of 2009’s Jacob’s Ladder is not bad as far as remakes go, and while it’s pretty good in that direction and acting department, where it falters is the story. Which is the lynchpin which everything revolves around. I haven’t see the original in a decade or so, but I do recall it […]

Trailer Into REaction – 6 Underground (2019): Visit Italy | Trailer

Michael Bay isn’t what I call a subtle director, and nothing about the ‘Visit Italy’ trailer for his upcoming 6 Underground indicates that that’s a mistaken impression. And that’s the problem because–at least for me–Bay being Bay isn’t terribly interesting. What is is that he’s working with Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick (Zombieland, Deadpool, Deadpool 2) […]

Scoob! | Trailer

Scoob is a cute trailer but I have to ask would anyone care about a Scooby Doo origin story (which is what it appears to be)? I get the feeling that a lot of kids have no idea who he is, and since the likelihood is high that his adventures as a puppy aren’t going […]

REview – In The Shadow Of The Moon (2019)

Disappointed by Terminator: Dark Fate (apparently if the box office’s any indicator you wouldn’t be the only one) and have a Netflix subscription? Check out In The Shadow Of The Moon, Jim Mickle’s, thematically speaking, Terminator-like sci-fi movie because it’s really good. I could go into the plot–but I won’t because it’s integral to the […]

REview- Shadow (2018)

Yimou Zhang’s Shadow is a remarkable bit of filmmaking. The movie revolves around two kingdoms on the precipice of war, and the political intrigues that come about. That doesn’t sound like much, but as executed by Zhang, it’s pretty remarkable stuff. And did I mention the entire movie is rendered in shades of white, black […]

REview – The Pool (2018)

The Pool isn’t a bad film, but it’s isn’t terribly good either. Let me explain. Theeradej Wongpuapan (who carries most of the movie, along with a CGI–I think. For the most part it’s really good–crocodile) and Ratnamon Ratchiratham are both decent actors and give good performances. The movie is well shot and lit and the […]
