    OVERLORD. Hot damn, what a ride. From the opening sequence it never lets up. Brutal, rousing action. Terrifying creature work. Memorable characters. It’s a grisly realization of Nazi mad scientist mayhem. This is the nightmare inducing supernatural power you’ve always imagined the Nazi’s were experimenting with and achieved.

    That being said, I had a blast. My favorite crawl of the series. I laughed more than I…

    I don't understand the love!

    This movie hates the park. It hates the kids. It hates most of its characters.

    It hates and mocks billion dollar company driven cash grabs, which is exactly what it is.

    Its story is meta fan service in the worst ways.

    I saw the first film 8 times in the theatre as a wide eyed 13 year old. I almost couldn't finish this one.

    Every nod didn't work for me. It felt like one giant…
