THE ETERNALS – review

              There is a portion of the geek press that has come to decide that Marvel movies, the MCU, are inherently bad. Perhaps it is ‘too much of a “good” thing’, or maybe it’s just that familiarity has bred contempt, but the fact is that once Marvel became so ubiquitous at the theater – and… Continue reading THE ETERNALS – review

BAD CANDY – review

              Boy howdy do I love Halloween. I also love anthology films. For some reason anthologies and Halloween seem to go hand in hand lately. I kinda dig that. Alas, with the release of TRICK ‘R’ TREAT it set the bar for Halloween Anthos pretty high and it changed the game. I give complete credit… Continue reading BAD CANDY – review

GHOSTS OF CHERNOBYL Review

         I will spare you the ‘I Love Found Footage Movies’ soliloquy because I sorta say that in every review I do of found footage movies. I love them, we get it. I just can’t say ‘no’. Even after all the terrible ones I watch, I still come back. And boy are there some terrible… Continue reading GHOSTS OF CHERNOBYL Review

Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things – review and appreciation

   I was still a kid when I discovered Children on one of our regional over the air channels that ran a double feature block of horror movies on Saturdays. The intro to the Thriller Double Feature mixed Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love (the instrumental weirdness in the middle of it) with images from several… Continue reading Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things – review and appreciation

The Deep House – review

There’s something about a well done haunted house film that just really taps into what makes horror so special and captivating for me. Take a normal day, normal people, and then insert them into a place that should be safe – a home. The home can be inhabited or abandoned, but either way it feels… Continue reading The Deep House – review

THE ARRIVAL – movie review

            Do you ever remember things differently than maybe they happened? I mean, we all do it, right? With friendships. With love. With our heroic adventures where we’re the star. We all do it, exaggerating or blurring reality or not quite seeing a thing for how it was. I have that happen to me all… Continue reading THE ARRIVAL – movie review

WW84 – AKA – WONDER WOMAN 84 Review

               Ya know what, here’s my biggest critique – can Hollywood stop with the weirdo ‘hip’ names for their movies, like using a number for a letter, or initials, or just…this. It’s Wonder Woman 1984. OK? Let the fans call it WW84 but you just call it what it is. There. There’s my big fan… Continue reading WW84 – AKA – WONDER WOMAN 84 Review

The Movie Cavalcade – The Great, The Bad, The Fun

            This has been a strange year, to say the very, very least. Strange, scary, hard, pick your descriptor and plug away. With the world shut down to various degrees it has meant I have had a lot more time to watch movies – hey man, I wrote enough books this year, gimme a break… Continue reading The Movie Cavalcade – The Great, The Bad, The Fun
