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.

REVIEW: ELYSIUM

Elysium-still

So before seeing this movie, I always make the mistake of poking in other reviews of movies I’m interested. This one being no exception, and the reviews had been 50/50. But the opinion of this movie-going fanatic, Elysium was FANTASTIC! If you enjoyed director, Neil Blomkamp’s last movie, District-9, I really think you’ll have a hard time not enjoying this film.
