Trailer Into REaction: Spiral: From The Book Of Saw

This is an odd one because when I learned the title of the latest Saw movie was Spiral: From The Book Of Saw I got vaguely biblical vibes (that’s why in my reaction I kept saying ‘Saul’ instead of ‘Saw’), which considering the subject matter is virtually sacrilegious. Spiral is a reboot of a franchise […]

To Your Last Death (2019) | Teaser Trailer

While I enjoyed the teaser trailer for To Your Last Death I don’t quite understand the point of it in that–in the teaser at least–it looks like a lot of live action movies we’ve seen before, like Saw or The Collector. The strongest thing about it is the animation, which is a more traditional 2D […]

Why I’ll (Likely) Not See ‘Aquaman’

I purchased a ticket for Escape Room recently (which looks like a cross between Cube, Saw and maybe even a little bit of Cabin In The Woods) but I haven’t yet seen Aquaman-though I caught Bumblebee, which is pretty good. And that’s saying something for a Transformers movie-and short of Netflix or DVD, have no […]

Escape Room – Trailer

I like this trailer. Take four or five people, heretofore unknown to each other, put them into a controlled–by someone–situation where they’re faced with either solving a puzzle, or dying. It plays a bit like Cube meets Saw (hopefully without the sadism) though what’s going to make or break this movie is the chemistry between […]

The Conjuring 2 – Trailer

I honestly don’t get all the excitement over James Wan and his ersatz horror movies. As far as I’m concerned, Saw was probably his high-water mark. The Conjuring? Insidious? Dead Silence? All competently made, all okay movies, though none particularly scary. This is mainly because what he doesn’t do quite so well is atmosphere, which […]

Furious 7 – Trailer 2

I haven’t seen any of The Fast and the Furious movies in their entirety (though I recall catching a snippet of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift when I was visiting my parents awhile ago) and had no intent of doing so. I am also surprised to learn that there have only been three, excluding the latest movie. […]
