Personally, I enjoyed The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug as an action thrill ride as opposed to a by the book retelling of the children’s tale. The audience is treated to the most ferocious and awe inspiring dragon to ever menace a movie screen (impressively voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) as well as a truckload of spills and chills designed to put you on the edge of your seat. While the middle installment spins its wheels narratively, still requires a score card to tell who’s who, and ends on a mostly unsatisfactory cliffhanger the film is a good deal brisker and more entertaining than the initial offering.
Is The Shining Kubick’s thinly veiled apology for personally faking the Apollo 11’s moon landing footage? Was Kubrick exploring the genocide of the Native American population?
Even with its short comings, I honestly found this to be an enjoyable flick although I'll admit the behind the scenes footage included with the screener added to that enjoyment. I would give Frankenstein’s army a strong recommendation to rent first.
American Mary is the latest horror film from Canadian “Twisted Twins” Jen and Sylvia Soska and tells the story of a financial strapped surgical student whose spur of the moment decision to score easy money begins a downward spiral into madness and murder.
Truth is Evil Dead of 2013 is very similar to the 1981 film in a lot of regards even though the execution is as different as night and day. Both films are E-ticket rides through a nightmare scenario which are sure to please fans of the horror genre.
Overall, Ooga Booga might be worth a buck rental from RedBox if you plan on gathering your friends for a night of enjoying your favorite mind altering substance while riffing on movies. Otherwise you can always watch this nasty little flick just so I’m not alone in my misery…
One needn’t be a diehard comic book reader nor line up for the opening to every Marvel related film to know the name Stan Lee. As opposed to his mainly forgotten comic book creative brethren Lee has, and no doubt, always will be front and center as more and more of his creations (or co-creations) continue to power a multibillion dollar genre of film.
Has the series run its course? Probably. The film was boring, with tired scare tactics and a thin plotline at best.
When I first heard of Iron Sky I thought it was simply a board game which involved a faction of Nazis escaping to the Moon in 1945 who then return to the Earth, in the twenty-teens, looking to crush all opposition under their lunar dusted boots.
I just got back from Comic-Con 2012 folks and I'm here with a review of the Cinemax After Dark episodic thriller Femme Fatales. Honestly,...
