Review: Supernova (2000)

I love this movie. That being said, that’s not the same as it being a very good movie–because it isn’t. Not necessarily. It’s fascinating to watch though because the production was such a tumultuous one you can often see what the director intended to do, which is always interesting. And the warp effect is probably […]

Review: The Society (2019)

The first season of Netflix’s The Society dropped late last week and having watched all ten episodes…it’s okay. I wouldn’t call it a must see–it’s significantly weaker than 2015’s Between (also on Netflix) a series that covers similar territory thematically, but works much, much better. That’s not to say The Society is a bad show–it’s […]

Review – I Trapped The Devil (2019)

You’ve likely seen a movie that was so similar to another that the similarities bothered you though what do you do about a movie that is so similar to another that it feels like plagiarism? That’s the problem I encountered with Josh Lobo’sI Trapped The Devil. It works as a thriller about a man who […]

Review – Alien: Ore (2019)

Review – Avengers: Endgame (2019)

The last film in the 22 movie Marvel Cinematic Universe ended with Avengers: Endgame, and it’s a spectacular and fitting ending filled to bursting–did I mention it’s just over three hours–with humor, drama and pathos. As I discuss in my video, I believe Endgame is less impactful than Avengers: Infinity War, and that’s shouldn’t be […]

Review – John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

Chad Stahelski’s John Wick: Chapter 2 is a fairly odd duck. It has all the stuff a regular movie has–actors, sets, production design, lighting design–but it’s really, really strange. And most of that strangeness is due to Keanu Reeves, who’s less a bad actor than a tabula rasa; a void embodied in human form. Though […]
