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 […]

Bumblebee – New Official Trailer

When you were a child and the first time you saw a bee and chased after it, because that’s what children do–or maybe pulled a dog’s tail–you had no real idea what was going or happen, though you likely learned from that initial (potentially painful) experience. That in a nutshell is how I feel about […]

Bumblebee – Teaser Trailer

Before I begin, I have not been a fan of the Transformers franchise since the first one. Once you get over they’re robots changing into cars, trucks and fighter craft there just isn’t that much there. Which would be bad enough if the movies weren’t–to varying degrees–chock full of cynicism, contempt for the viewer, sexism […]

Star Trek – A Gay XXX Parody

If you’ve been thinking that the only thing wrong with Star Trek was that they were missing gay sex, then I have the video for you! Though to be fair, what cause my eye was the poster, which is surprisingly  faithful to that of one of the better Trek movies, Star Trek: The Motion Picture […]
