World War Z Sequel Beheaded!?

According to The Hollywood Reporter Paramount has stopped development on a sequel to 1993’s zombie thriller World War Z. The movie has been in various states of development for years, with the most recent version being shepherded by David Fincher (The Game, Fight Club) Apparently the issue is related to budget–ironically enough, the same problem […]

Annihilation – Review

I missed Annihilation in theaters–as did most people since it cost $40 million to produce–literally a pittance in days of $200-300 million epics–and earned just over two-thirds of that amount. And that’s a pity because Annihilation is literally one of the best movies of 2018. It’s beautiful, powerful and manages to have a cast primarily […]

Bird Box – Review

2018’s A Quiet Place came in the nick of time because Paramount–the studio that released it–was on relatively shaky ground after the underwhelming response to Star Trek: Beyond (there’s no colon in the title but I’m adding one anyway). It certain didn’t hurt that A Quiet Place was budgeted at $17 million and earned just […]

Bumblebee – Review

Most of the Transformers movies are drek (the first gets a pass because it was new and as viewers we had no idea what to expect) and how they went on to be the successes they ended up being–prior to the franchise running out of steam in it’s later chapters–is virtually beyond comprehension. I blame […]

Sonic The Hedgehog – Motion Poster

Recently Paramount released a motion poster for their upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie, and it looks…interesting, to put it charitably (and I don’t mean in a good way). The biggest problem seems like the producers may be aiming for a more realistic interpretation of the over-caffeinated Erinaceomorpha (in other words, not a rodent). Though more […]

Overlord – Review

I caught Julius Avery’s Overlord yesterday, and for the most part enjoyed it. In particular there were some pretty engaging moments of body horror that came from nowhere and really livened things up. That being said there were also a few niggling details that distracted from it being all it could be. One of which was […]

Overlord – Final Trailer

In these days of false equivalency, when there are very fine people on both sides it’s kind of refreshing to see a movie making the heretofore noncontroversial point that Nazis are scum. And not only run of the mill scum, but truly monsters. By the way, I don’t know who designed the movie poster, but […]
