REVIEW: BATMAN V SUPERMAN – DAWN OF JUSTICE

Okay, so I know I’m really late in posting a review for this movie. But after seeing it, I couldn’t think of a way to write a review without talking about spoilers… which might be a reflection of my ability as a critic, but that’s a whole other conversation, haha.

But it’s been 3 weeks since BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE has opened, so hopefully you’ve all seen it. And if you haven’t? Well I’ll tell you right now, THERE ARE ARE SPOILERS AHEAD! PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!

REVIEW: DEADPOOL

What can I say about DEADPOOL except that is was… HILARIOUSLY, FUCKING, AWESOME!

It’s so funny to me how LONG it’s taken 20th Century Fox to get a MARVEL movie right?!! And yes, I include the Brian Singer X-MEN movies in that. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed Singer’s X movies… but they’re forgettable, and by that, I mean, WAY limited replay value. But DEADPOOL? I can watch that bitch OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER AGAIN!

REVIEW: THE HATEFUL EIGHT

Watching this movie I was reminded of a conversation I had with some friends of mine, specifically what directors am I always excited for when they have a movie coming out. And I have to say, Quentin Tarantino is definitely one of them. I mean, with the exception of JACKIE BROWN (it didn’t do much for me), I’ve loved all his movies. Everything from his writing, to how he frames his stories, his movies are always a huge amount of fun to watch.

And THE HATEFUL EIGHT is no exception. Continue reading REVIEW: THE HATEFUL EIGHT

REVIEW: STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS

So if my social media feeds are any indication, even after a week in theatres, not only is STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS still going strong, there are still crazy lines for showtimes. Which, honestly, couldn’t make me happier to hear.

BUT if you are in that minority who hasn’t seen this movie yet, I’ll keep this review as spoiler free as possible. Don’t worry dear reader, if I get into spoiler territory, I’ll give you fair warning.

As for a review, let me simply say, if the “original, PRE-special edition” trilogy were something you grew up with, I’ll tell you right at the outset, I think you’re going to be happy, VERY happy.

Random Takes: THE WIL WHEATON PROJECT

So THE WIL WHEATON PROJECT premiered on  SyFy last night… and it was just, okay. I mean, I liked the format. Though itself, nothing new. A format we’ve seen for years on E! and, shall it rest in peace, G4. Comedic commentary on events in particular niche over the last week, usually set against a greenscreened set.

REVIEW: ‘The Colony’, SKIP IT!!!

The-Colony

I gotta say, I was hopeful for this movie. I mean, I’ve been needing me some solid sci-fi/horror for a LONG TIME. I think the last sci-fi/horror film that scared the crap out of me was Event Horizon, funnilly enough, also starring Laurence Fishburne, who stars here as well. So when I started seeing spots for this movie, I was getting more and more excited. Post-apocalyptic horror goodness. All starring my man Fishburne…

…sad to say, this movie was shit. Continue reading REVIEW: ‘The Colony’, SKIP IT!!!

REVIEW: RIDDICK

So everyone’s favorite Furyan is back in action. And what’s the overall take on RIDDICK?

Eh.

Don’t get me wrong, the movie was fun as hell. But sadly, more than anything, it felt like a remake of Pitch Black. Seriously, break it down from the trailer: stranded on a desolate planet, people hate Riddick, Bounty Hunters, and creepy ass monsters that really seem to business only at night… I mean it doesn’t give you anything new.
