    Ouija: Origin of Evil

    The original "Ouija" was the most cliched lazily executed excretion of a horror film to come out in 2014. Ouija: Origin of Evil is slightly better due to being an "Exorcist" knockoff. While the film is well shot and the 60s aesthetic is utterly convincing you've seen this plot a thousand times before and its way past old hat at this point.

    ★★★½

    Easily the second best DCEU movie, although that isn't a particularly high bar to leap. Post-Wonder Woman the series seems to finally be getting on the right track.

If you liked Wonder Woman but wished Superman and Batman had gotten better movies, this one is worth your time.

    Star Wars Canon Entry #9 & My Must Watchlist for 2015 Entry #12

    Having a filmmaker helm the new entry in beloved franchise who is also a fan of said franchise can be a mixed blessing. On the one hand you have someone who “gets” the intellectual property fans adore but on the other hand the creator can potentially be blinded by nostalgia. Take Superman Returns for example. In the 70’s Richard Donner brought Superman to the big screen which wowed…
