    Dawn of the Dead

    ★★★½

    **6th Watch of Hoop-tober 2017**

    (Review of the Extended/Director's Cut)

    It may be a story of survival and thrives on zombie killing mayhem, but Romero's message isn't lost on me nor is it subtle. Dawn of the Dead expands upon the ground work laid in its monumental predecessor's narrative and acts as a terrific follow up that is more than worthy.

    Near Dark

    ★★★½

    **5th Watch of Hoop-tober 2017**

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★★

    Here it is ladies and gentlemen. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is perhaps the most divisive movie I've ever seen/been a part of. Both critics and fans are contending why this was an achievement or an utter failure. I have to say though that I enjoyed this. I'm not checking this one as "Contains Spoilers" simply on the grounds that most of this was made known in the trailers or was ruined by critic click bait headlines. Don't worry…
