There’ll Be Hell(boy) To Pay

The website for Lionsgate upcoming Hellboy reboot is live–the movie will be out April 12, 2019–and while there’s little in the way of new information there currently, there are a few posters you might be interested in downloading. Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, Doomsday, Lost In Space (2018)) is directing and I’m definitely interested–though not as […]

Hell Fest – Review

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 […]

Robin Hood – Teaser Trailer

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. Though that’s picking nits. A more significant problem potentially is that, despite being masked, how is it even […]

Hacksaw Ridge – Trailer

I love a good war flick, though preferably of the more–relatively speaking–modern variety, where the people doing the fighting believe that what they’re doing is for all the right reasons, till they often come to see whichever conflict they happen to be engaging in a context larger than themselves. I think the first I can […]

Science, Sorcery and Movies

Typically, when we’re talking about science, it’s in reference to something that can be proven (such as global warming, which despite what naysayers may say, is quantifiable) by a combination of observation, experimentation and tried and true trial and error. Now sorcery doesn’t have as nearly as rigorous a system of validation, because we’re talking about something […]

Gods Of Egypt – Trailer 2

      I meant to post the latest Gods Of Egypt trailer yesterday.  I didn’t because I haven’t gotten around to changing my iMac’s hard drive–I don’t own any Torx screwdrivers, though I intend to remedy that over the weekend.  As a result this is my first post made entirely on an iPad.  From images […]

The Divergent Series: Allegiant Official Trailer

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 […]

The Quiet Ones – Review

“John Pogue’s The Quiet Ones doesn’t bring a lot new to the possession sub-genre, but is most interesting for its restrained, almost documentary-like approach.” The first thing that I noticed about John Pogue’s The Quiet Ones was that it’s supposedly based upon actual events, which for me means that you’re going to get one of two extremes.  The […]

I, Frankenstein – Review

“I, Frankenstein.  At Least It’s Not Van Helsing.” That’s pretty weak praise, then again I, Frankenstein isn’t the strongest of movies. No one through virtually the entire running time is at all certain if the Monster (Aaron Eckhart) has a soul–spoiler alert:  He does–though I wish the same could be said for the movie itself, because […]
