  • Renfield



    What do you get when you put a comedic spin on classic horror characters, stick them in a modern day setting, and cross them with a "lone good cop vs crime family" story-line?

    If you answered "That sounds like a very strange mix of tones", give yourself a hearty pat on back, because that's exactly what Chris McKay's Renfield is.

    On the one hand, it has Nicolas Cage hamming it up perfectly as the Prince of Darkness, and another Nicholas…

  • Fast X

    Fast X


    Here's a shock: Fast X is not cinematic greatness. It's a very silly, popcorn action flick with big explosions, racing cars, physics defying stunts, apparent deaths, resurrections, and multiple mentions of family.

    Fans won't care about the inane dialogue, the painful attempts at humour, the too many plot threads that are not given good service, or the complete lack of consequence for these all-but-superheroes.

    Critics will, but it's their job to point out where a movie falls short. They might,…

    The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers


    It baffles me how many people rank this as the best of the trilogy.

    Yes, the Battle of Helm's Deep is amazing, but to get there, you have to watch hobbits talking to trees for what feels like an eternity, and Aragorn and co run run running for half a film.

    It's still very good, but not up to the standards of the other two films, for mine.

    The Frodo Fatigue is also growing throughout this one.

  • Black Site

    Black Site

    I should have known the moment I saw Jai Courtney - The Franchise Killer - on the poster, but holy shit, this movie stinks. From story to production design, and certainly including acting, dialogue and horrendous visual effects, there is pretty much nothing redeemable to be found on this site.

    Avoid at all costs.

  • Crawl



    Things I learned while watching Crawl:

    - Florida state police officers do not bother pursuing people who directly and brazenly ignore their explicit orders.
    - Basements below ground level do not flood until it is narratively necessary for them to do so.
    - Alligators are all at least 9 feet long.
    - If any alligators smaller than 9 feet long do exist, they most certainly do not venture into basements where their smaller size would enable them to crawl under…

  • Tenet




    For several months now, Tenet has been proclaimed as the film which might just save the movie theatre industry. A 200 million dollar, original property blockbuster, written and directed by one of the most reliable names in Hollywood, Christopher Nolan. The hopes were that Nolan might deliver a film that was so incredible – so quintessential – to see on the big screen that it would tempt people from their homes, with their huge televisions…
