Ready Player One – Review

I caught Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One on video last weekend (after not seeing it in theaters). And that wasn’t an accident. The trailers for the movie looked like a bit of a train wreck, with Spielberg’s name being it’s biggest selling point. And I was right. Sort of. Ready Player One is indeed a […]

Is ‘Ready Player One’ in Trouble?

I’m genuinely concerned about Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Ready Player One.  Reason being, there may indeed be a buzz building for this movie, but if there is I haven’t heard it. In the past Spielberg directing a project was a guaranteed smash.  Now, with a lot of viewers I’d wager not even knowing who he is, […]

‘IT’ – Official Trailer #2

The latest trailer for Stephen King’s IT dropped a few hours ago, and the first thing I wondered when I saw if was if IT was also a part of the Stranger Things universe. Both feature Finn Wolfhard, both revolve around a group of young people on the cusp of the adult world–and the secrets that […]

Split – Trailer into Reaction

Spring – Review

“Be careful who you love, because Spring is coming and it’s a monster.” Some critics has described Spring as ‘Lovecraftian,’–which is what drew me to it in the first place–and while a very good movie, Lovecraftian it’s not.  For it to be so would imply that it was based on, or somehow similar or related to, the […]

Extraterrestrial – Review

The last film from The Vicious Brothers (who aren’t–biologically speaking–brothers) was the send-up of found footage reality shows, Grave Encounters.  It was one of the better examples of the genre because it was able to take many of the tropes that come with it (How is it that no matter what or where something happens there’s […]
