Halloween (2018) – Review

Last weekend I caught the reboot of Halloween, and it was an enjoyable–though by no means perfect–horror movie. What makes it work so well is a trait I last mentioned in reference to Shane Black’s The Predator (which that movie lacked) namely it’s relatively simple (in terms of it’s plot). Michael Myers escapes from where […]

The Predator – Review

I was really expecting Shane Black’s reboot of the Predator franchise to be all sorts of awesome. After all, this is the same guy who wrote the Lethal Weapon movies, as well as The Long Kiss Goodnight, The Last Boyscout, as well as directing movies like The Nice Guys and Iron Man 3. And…I was […]

The Predator – Final Trailer

The Predator – Teaser Trailer

What is it with the Alien and Predator franchises? It almost feels like they’re being deliberately sabotaged (few other things can explain why Ridley Scott is so intent on undermining a series he himself helped to create) by some really bizarre decisions on the part of the people directing them, and it’s a pity. In […]

The Nice Guys – Official Red Band & Final Trailer

I think I want to see this movie. While the The Nice Guys looks like a typical Shane Black movie–The Last Boy Scout, The Long Kiss Goodnight–that’s not necessarily a bad thing because those movies were a lot of fun.  After all, it’s not like he’s is directing movies left and right (his last was Iron Man […]
