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 […]

Trailer Into Reaction: Star Wars, Episode IX | Teaser Trailer

I’m done with Star Wars. I enjoyed the original trilogy, but every since George Lucas left the franchise it appears that Lucasfilm is asleep at the wheel. I think they’re taking a “director-driven approach” which means a director can essentially do whatever the heck they want, never mind continuity or narrative consistency. And I’m out. […]

Review – Alien: Specimen

Initially I thought that an idea of a series of short films based within the Alien universe was a great idea. That is, till I saw Alien: Containment and came to–in hindsight a hasty conclusion–that maybe it’s not such a bad idea that the Alien franchise maybe takes a bit of a break. As I […]

Review – Alien: Containment (2019)

Alien: Containment is one of the six–though I have also read there may be seven–shorts made commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Alien. And it’s not that good. I don’t mean for a moment to imply that it’s not well-shot and convincingly production designed. No. Alien: Containment‘s problem is that it doesn’t do anything that we […]

William – Official Trailer

This trailer really annoys me. Reason being, it takes what should be a remarkable thing–reintroducing Neanderthals into the present day–and instead appears to be little more than a typical play on being a member of an “out group” (depending upon the circumstances, a woman, people of color, smart people, homosexual, etc) learning how to fit […]

Review – A.X.L

A.X.L is not a good movie, but it’s one of the best movies about a man-like person and his robotic dog that I have seen in awhile. That being said, I can only recall only one other movie that featured a robotic canine and that’s Battlestar Galactica (1977). A.X.L isn’t either that good or that […]
