I honestly don’t understand Keanu Reeves’ appeal. Sure, he appears to be appealing as a person and affable on screen, but–for the most part–he doesn’t act more so than just appear. And the ‘for the most part’ is the Bill & Ted movies, The Matrix and Speed. That’s it. There can be all sorts of […]
I love stop-motion animation. I was almost weaned on Ray Harryhausen, so it means something to me. There’s something surreal about it. It never quite looks like part of the scene–which is part of it’s charm–but it was always so obviously craft-intensive and fascinating to watch that even when it wasn’t done that well (LazerBlast) […]
A few hours ago Sony released the teaser trailer for their upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home and it looks like a lot of fun (like any Spider-Man movie should be).

Netflix’s Sex Education is off to a great start.

This is opposite many American […]
Yesterday I rented Monsterland on iTunes–it was on sale for 99 cents–and I’m glad I did because if I had paid more I’ve been really pissed. As it stands it wasn’t a terrible anthology–and far better than the truly horrendous Creepshow 3, which isn’t saying much–but too inconsistent (when it wasn’t being amateurish and badly […]
