REVIEW: Halloween (2018)

Halloween (2018) takes place 40 years after the original film, completely wiping the slate clean of any sequels or over-complications. The Shape has been incarcerated ever since that fateful Halloween night in 1978, until he breaks out of a transport bus and heads to Haddonfield to wreak havoc. Little does he know that for all…

Top 5 Disney Villains

“Now, shall you deal with ME, O Prince – and all the powers of HELL!” Throughout Disney animation’s long history, their villains have become just as iconic as their heroes. Some even prefer the villains and consider them more relatable and nuanced. Personally, I don’t feel that way, but I do think a movie should…

Now that Mysterio has reared his so-far-fishbowlless head, it’s Spidey’s turn, as pictures have surfaced of Tom Holland in Spider-Man’s new suit while he films Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The film opens with Armstrong piloting a plane into the atmosphere in a rather intense scene, then quickly transitions into Neil’s home life with his family….

REVIEW: Apostle (2018)

Apostle stars Dan Stevens and Michael Sheen and follows a man who sails to an unknown island in search of his captive sister, infiltrating the crazed cult that’s holding her. I had been eagerly awaiting this film ever since it’s announcement, as I think Gareth Evans is one of the most talented action filmmakers working…

REVIEW: A Star is Born (2018)

Some movies get remade because studios believe that nostalgia can squeeze more money out of a property, other movies get remade because a director sees a way to add something new to an already established story; A Star is Born is definitely in that latter category. We’ve seen this movie done several times, but with Bradley…

You Should Be Watching: Paranorman (2012)

“I didn’t ask to be born this way.” “Funny, neither did we.” Welcome back to You Should Be Watching, where I recommend movies and TV shows that deserve more attention than they’ve gotten.
