    ★★★★★

    Certainly one of the best movies of the year, and I do hope that this one gets the awards attention that it deserves. It's the story of a woman whose entire town and life is uprooted when the job that her husband has been working for closes down, and since the company was so big in the town, this causes the zip code to leave along with it. This leaves Fern with limited options, but she chooses to take only…

    Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel

    ★★½

    Alright let's get into this one. I usually don't love real crime stories, people that know me or have been following me for some time (thank you guys by the way, y'all are the best) would know that I am pretty sensitive to real world violence, or even stuff that walks the line of it. I am a die hard horror fan, but the first sight of real world violence and I am in rough shape.

    Exposition aside, much like…

    ★★★½

    For those that are mad that this isn't just like the original series and that it should have used a different name, you do you, but I have to question the thought process with that. After having just went through all 6 entries, there wasn't much in the way of artistic integrity to really hold on to towards the end, so making a new movie with the title doesn't really seem all that bad to me, in comparison to the…

    Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort

    ★★

    Oh man, I really remember liking these movies more than I do now. Partly it's watching them all at once instead of as they come out, really shows how few ideas this series really had. It could be fun to return back to them briefly every time the new movie in the series comes out, but watching them all at once shows that there really wasn't much worth while with this series after the first 2.

    This one resembles more…

    Child's Play

    ★★★★

    For those that know me, they know that Child’s Play holds one of the most special places in my heart. In many ways my terror towards the doll Chucky got me into horror, and facing my fears of dolls in general. The entire franchise I have watched many times over, and I still do fairly often when I am wanting some nice entertaining killer doll movies. I was still excited though about the idea of this movie. I will not…

    ★★★★

    I will certainly have to second to Steven Francis in saying that the movie is certainly hard to rate. There are a lot of different reasons for that which I will get into, but my overall thoughts about the movie is that I liked it. I didn't love it in all honesty, but I had a good time and will likely be picking this one up when it comes out.

    Firstly the movie's technical elements are very strong. The cinematography…
