Hell Fest is not a good movie. It’s seemingly a throwback to 1980’s slasher films–not a bad thing in and of itself, Hereditary, released earlier this month, is itself a throwback to movies like Rosemary’s Baby–but where Hell Fest goes wrong is that it’s a throwback to the worse tendencies of slasher movies, with archetypes […]
Watching the teaser trailer for Otto Bathurst‘s upcoming Robin Hood I wonder if it’s alternate title was Arrow: The REALLY Early Years because thematically it plays just like an episode of that series in a medieval setting.

I haven’t see any of the ‘Divergent‘ movies–and I blame the Hunger Games because all these movies based on Young Adult novels pretty much feel the same for me. And while that’s not quite fair, there’s undeniably a similarity between many of them. Which reminds me: I suggest that you see The Maze Runner if you haven’t […]
I really want to like this movie. I have had a fascination with Egypt for most of my life–and the tattoo to prove it!–and want to really like it.
