James Gunn’s ‘Suicide Squad’ Underperforms

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad premiered Friday with $12 million at the North American box office. By way of comparison, 2016’s Suicide Squad opened with $64 million. That’s a MASSIVE decline and while COVID wasn’t an issue in 2016, neither was WarnerMedia’s streaming platform, HBOMax. This is what happens when a company is willing to […]

Trailer Into REaction: Stardust (2020) | Official Trailer

Stardust appears to chronicle the period of 1972-1974, when David Bowie assumed the persona of Ziggy Stardust, which considering how theatrical he was throughout that period seems particularly cinematic.

Moon Knight, like most characters, has gone through various incarnations though interestingly […]

AHS 1984 (2019) | Official Trailer

But–at for the first season at any rate–American Horror Story was trashy. And icky (and not in a “good” way). I mean, if I’m not watching horror geared at […]

REview – The Strain (2014 – 2017)

This weekend–after taking advantage of a free month of Hulu–I caught Guillermo Del Toro’s The Strain and it was pretty good which only fell short of remarkable because the fourth season felt truncated (According to shorrunner/director Carlton Cuse Del Toro actually had plans for a fifth season, which would have given what ended up being […]
