Hellboy (2019) – Trailer Into Reaction

Lionsgate, only a few few hours ago as of this writing, released the trailer for their upcoming Hellboy reboot. Which I really expected to dislike but in actuality I found it pretty intriguing. For a start, it appears to preserve the visual continuity Of Guillermo Del Toro’s two entries, which makes sense considering the visual […]

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 […]

Pacific Rim: Uprising – Review

This review is a long time coming because while I’m a huge fan of the original Pacific Rim I didn’t know how to approach the sequel, especially since the director of the first, Guillermo Del Toro, wouldn’t be returning to the franchise.

Keep […]

A Perfect Vehicle for Michael Bay

And that’s not a sentiment I come by all too often because Bay’s movies are all about what’s on the surface, and typically lack anything approaching nuance (though to be fair he definitely knows his audience.) Though that audience is generally not terribly discriminating, which is why it’s so maddening when the Transformers movies do […]

Pacific Rim: Uprising – Teaser Trailer

1993’s kaiju versus giant robots epic Pacific Rim never appeared to find its audience domestically–earning three times more ($102 million vs $309 million) at the foreign box office (primarily China).  And it’s hard to understand why, epecially when you take into account it had more heart and was more clever in it’s first five minutes the […]
