  • The Mummy 1932

    ★★★★ Rewatched 13 Apr, 2014

    Egyptology has always been a powerful interest of mine and The Mummy was one of my favorite films growing up. I latched onto the Universal horror films of the Golden Age of Hollywood and never let go; they were my gateway drugs to modern horror and they always hold a place in my heart. Now if you're asking whether Karl Freund's film is still frightening today, the answer isn't quite a yes. It lacks the creepy factor of some of…

  • Stitch 2014

    Watched 12 Apr, 2014

    Stitch represents everything that is wrong about low-budget, half-assed horror films.

I had heard much about the struggle to get the film released, of course--filmed by Drew Goddard based on a script by Joss Whedon and himself, delayed to do 3D post-conversion and…

  • Veronica Mars 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 14 Mar, 2014

    Disclaimer: I am a massive fan of the Veronica Mars series, which of course this film is a sequel of. I gave to the Kickstarter, quite heavily. So I am unabashedly biased.

    That being said, Rob Thomas' big screen adaptation is one I think most fans of mysteries will enjoy. Thomas does a great job with the script, which essentially plays out like a feature-length episode of the show but in the best possible way. The film does a good…
