ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS Story – Review

“What’s surprising is not that ROGUE ON: A STAR WARS Story has earned almost $850 million worldwide, but how astoundingly mediocre the movie actually is.” The biggest problem with Gareth Edwards’ ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS Story is that it’s two movies. For the bulk of it’s time it’s a war movie, and a not […]

Rogue One Review Capsule

I’m in the process of editing my review of ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS Story so check back for the full version! Though I have to say that I really did not like this movie.  Say what you will about the prequels, at least they felt like Star Wars movies. Rogue One?  Maybe the last […]

My Two Cents – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Let me cut to the chase.  I am not particularly enamored of Gareth Edwards as a director. The problems start with his filmography. First you have Monsters, a movie where the aforementioned monsters felt like an afterthought which shouldn’t be the case with a movie named Monsters.

Godzilla: Resurgence – Teaser Trailer

Ltd, the original creators of the radioactive-firebreathing lizard, would do a much better job (and the less I say about […]

Review – Avengers: Age of Ultron

The (Un)necessary Remake Dept: DeepStar Six

No, DeepStar Six, isn’t the latest Ultramarionation feature from Jamie Anderson, but a undersea horror movie from Sean Cunningham (Friday the 13th) that was followed in quick succession by George P. Cosmatos’ Leviathan, and culminated five months later in James Cameron’s far superior The Abyss. DeepStar Six revolves around a US Navy mission to place an undersea […]

‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Extended TV Spot

This new trailer for James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy popped up on the Interwebs yesterday, and it significantly expands the scale of the universe–literally and figuratively–that the Guardians call their sandbox.  It seems a conventional summer blockbuster in many ways. And in other ways, not so much.  Something important about is is that–if Marvel Studios current […]
