    The Thing

    ★★★★½

    "I don't know what the hell's in there, but it's weird and pissed off, whatever it is."

    The crew of an isolated Antarctic research station encounters an alien that can perfectly mimic any living organism it encounters. Been at least 3 decades since I've seen this and it's quite remarkable how well it's held up ...especially being able to see it in HD, Wow!. Rob Bottin's practical creature fx still amazes and terrifies in equal measure and, rather than have…

    The Dead Pool

    ★★★

    Harry: "You forgot your fortune cookie!"
    Gunman: "What?"
    Harry: "It says... you're sh*t outta luck!"

The story is given a minimal plot thread, the characters don't get much development beyond what's necessary and even the villain is no more than a phantom until the final act ...which was quick and rather anti-climactic.

    Under deadline to produce a new "toy" and suddenly having to take care of a niece who lost her parents, a robotics engineer brings home M3GAN ...just for testing purposes. This was a film that played out exactly as one would expect and it was good but, for whatever reason, it just didn't hit all the right notes for me. M3GAN…

    Hellraiser

    ★★★½

    "I'm sorry... I'm sorry... I'm sorry for what I've done. Have mercy."
    "Save your breath for screaming."

    A slightly adjusted re-imaging of the Hellraiser mythos giving the puzzle box a more intricate and important role in how to deal with the cenobites. First the cons: Although it's not slow or dull, it really didn't need over 2 hours to tell this story. Also, it's annoyingly dark ...even watching it in a dark room, it was difficult to see. It is…
