    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…

    Toy Story 4

    ★★★★★

    What a fantastic movie. I used to think I just liked the franchise, but between this and my recent rewatch of the original movie I think I might love it. Its a really cool story, and I like the ways that the movies comment on very human things from the perspective of toys. It gives a way of talking about potentially upsetting things to being still safe for kids, but adults can get a lot out of the movies. In…

    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★★★★

    I had a great time with this one, and I was really hoping that I would. It looked great with the trailers, but the movie was even a bit better than I had expected. It was more "Hard R Rated" than I thought it might be, and it really does have that edge that suicide squad seemed to lack.

    This one is filled with great humor, excellent stylistic decisions, confident direction, and some truly excellent writing. The very few things…

  • Doom: Annihilation

    Doom: Annihilation

    ★★

    Doom Annihilation starts out pretty bad, but ends up being a fairly decent time thanks to plenty of low budget action, and interesting creature effects. It isn't particularly good, but given the fact that this thing probably had no budget it actually has some decent sequences.

    It takes way too long to get going though as this thing doesn't really seem to get anywhere until about 45 minutes in, and then the action really kicks in. There are some odd…

    Midsommar

    ★★★★

    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…

  • Pet Sematary

    Pet Sematary

    ★★★★½

    Pet Sematary has already seen its fair share of divided opinion, but I think this adaptation is incredibly strong. The original movie does a lot of things right, and upon re-watching again recently I think it still holds up as an amazing horror film. This adaptation does a lot of things to freshen up the source material, and I think it really pays off. I am glad it didn’t do the same thing as the original movie, and the movie…
