    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    So I've been looking forward to watching this film for a good while now. It's one of the "great" horror films I've never seen. I wanted to like it, but it's really hard. 


    There are some glorious shots sprinkled throughout this film that I truly loved and appreciated. When it comes to the cast, Learherface was a highlight, but that's about it. I couldn't stand listening to anyone else in the film. The constant screaming and filler scenes didn't help.…

    Backcountry

    ★★½

    Honestly, I'm not even sure if it's worth a 2.5/5. The fact this is based off a real life incident is the most terrifying thing about it.

    I'll likely drop this down to a 2/5. Missy Peregrym does her best to carry this film with her charm alone, but you'll watch and wonder how this wasn't just a short film.

    I remember watching X-Men when I was eight and loving it. I remember the great X2 and the disappointing X-Men: The Last Stand. No matter how much I want to, I could never forget the abysmal X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Our first solo Wolverine film. Things have gotten sort of better since…

    ★★

    Kudos to Brie Larson's character for understanding:

    "We don't belong here."

    Oh boy... bare with me!

    When Kong: Skull Island was announced, I was excited. This is the second film in what I call the "KaijUniverse" with the first film being 2014's Godzilla. (I know it's the "MonsterVerse" but I just like my version better.)

    I was excited when Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The King's of Summer, American Ham) was announced as director. To see an up and coming talent given a…
