When I first heard of Underworld I imagined it would be incredible. Vampires and werewolves engaged in a conflict that’s spanned ages! A war that raged for the most part outside of human knowledge? Yes, please! Eventually I saw the movie and realized that vampires and werewolves go great together–that is till you shoehorn in elements of The Matrix, gun […]
M. Night Shyamalan continues to have a very interesting career. For awhile, he was by some considered the heir apparent” to Steven Spielberg, which is very rarified air. And I can’t imagine that not going to his head a little bit, which probably has at least a little to do with Lady in the Water. That being said, I […]
Here’s my reaction trailer to Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival. It looks pretty interesting, and I like the seemingly more cerebral approach to the material.

I honestly don’t understand the point of an “Ultimate Edition” of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice because I don’t know what’s it’s supposed to do. Make a confusing narrative a bit less so?

As I mention in my latest video (below the text), the most recent trailer for Star Trek: Beyond (I don’t care that there’s no colon, I’m putting one in anyway) looks pretty interesting. There’s a lot going on–maybe even a bit too much because from a narrative standpoint I have no idea why things are happening […]
