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 […]
This is an awesome movie! Now, by ‘awesome’ I mean ‘effective’ because the story is a mess an it has…problems. What makes Escape Room work is the actors. They’re no joke and buy into a bizarre scenario–that’s gets progressively more ridiculous the more you learn about it–with aplomb. Want more info, check out my review!
I like to reward innovation whenever I can, and it goes without saying that sometimes when you take a chance things don’t always work out as planned. Then again, it takes cojones to do something seemingly counterintuitive yet believe in it enough to see it through (that doesn’t apply to the DCEU under Zach Snyder […]

This short caught me by surprise mainly because I’m not a huge fan of CGI-animated features though as a medium it has advanced exponentially since Tron in 1982 (in which only portions of the movie–like the light cycle races and the MCP–were actually computer generated). But it not only has it’s place, but as movies […]
If you haven’t seen any of the three seasons-so far-of Travelers on #Netflix do yourself a favor and check it out. The imminently bingeable series revolves around the exploits of ‘travelers,’ people from a dystopian future who seek to prevent it from coming into being by altering the past-which is our present. Created by Brad […]
