  • Life After Beth

    Life After Beth

    ½

    Jeff Baena's Life After Beth is A24's first straight up tire fire of a film. Even their first A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III at least attempted to do something interesting. I guess you could argue that the metaphors underlying the action have the potential to be interesting, but if you dig any deeper, the subtext contradicts itself enough to render it meaningless. This is a dark comedy that has neither comedy nor darkness. I don't think I even cracked a smile watching this, and I'm not a stingy laugher... One of the precious few A24 films to avoid at all costs...

    MCU marathon #8: Thor: The Dark World is the reason I loathe the MCU, encapsulated into a single film... It's unbearably, indescribably dull and impossibly generic... Strange thing is I remember enjoying pieces of the final set-piece in the moment, but now, mere days later, I can hardly even remember them. Par for the MCU course... I'll admit that I liked the first six films far more than I remembered, but this thing managed to derail all of that in one single swoop...

    TRASHHHHHH... Slightly more competent than the God's Not Dead trilogy, but trash nonetheless...

  • Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation

    ½

    This film... This is a film that exists, and a museum needs to be built in honor of that... Like, there's a legitimate chance that once film has been around several more centuries and galleries are build for the medium, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation will be displayed for being decades ahead of the surrealist sub-genre it will one day influence. Similarly to Leatherface, Next Generation is technically a sequel to the events of the first and minor…

    Oh God, no.

    Mill Creek's Killer Creature Features box set film #26

    After a few brief glimpses of hope, Sound Of Horror marks an abrupt return to the Mill Creek I know and despise... Yeah, that's it, there's nothing worth saying about this...

  • Killers from Space

    Mill Creek's Killer Creature Features box set film #22

    Yeah, so I watched five of these things in a row, this being the first, and I couldn't tell you a single thing that happened... Except that it was terrible...

    Oh wait, this is the one that did something Forbidden Planet-esque, which is odd since it came out before Forbidden Planet... None of it worked in any way, just a thought... The sole thought I'll ever have about Killers From Space...

  • Voodoo Black Exorcist

    Mill Creek's Killer Creature Features box set film #21

    Vudú sangriento (the film's official title, because of course) is one of the worst films I've ever seen, right alongside five or six of its fellow Mill Creek fam... Despite that, Voodoo Black Exorcist is one of those rare abominations to thine eyes that's also genuinely hilarious at times in ways that feel intentional, but you know aren't... This film is proof that teenagers obsessed with The Room have yet to…

  • The Vanishing of Sidney Hall

    The Vanishing of Sidney Hall

    ½

    It's hard to believe A24 had anything to do with this... A24 films are far from above reproach, but what they do better than anyone is discern what they have with their films well before any sort of marketing or even awareness exists for the films... I remember seeing Gus Van Sant's The Sea Of Trees opening day in an empty theater and being unable to find someone who even knew what it was, let alone had seen it. A24…

    The worst film ever made...

    Mill Creek's Killer Creature Features box set film #19

    One of the very worst, even by Mill Creek standards...I'll leave it at that... This really, really doesn't deserve any other description...
