I took a film class in high school AND college so you can trust me when I tell you the greatest movie of all time is Shoot 'Em Up.

    The Blood of Heroes

    ★★★

    I liked Rollerball so much that when a friend pointed me to what she described as an Australian Rollerball rip-off written and directed by David Webb Peoples, the writer of Blade Runner, Unforgiven, and 12 Monkeys, and starring Rutger Hauer, Joan Chen, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Delroy Lindo, how could I NOT check it out when it was sitting right there on Prime.

If you guessed that this film crew encounters REAL ZOMBIES...yes, you're very smart. Shut…

    Halloween Kills

    ★★★

    I was disappointed by the disappointing reviews of Halloween Kills, but now I too am writing a disappointing review of Halloween Kills. Man, this is one of those sequels that makes me question whether the previous movie was actually as good as I thought it was. Screenwriters Scott Teems—replacing Jeff Fradley, who may have been the magic touch, who knows!!—Danny McBride, and David Gordon Green begin the movie in the middle of Halloween (2018) before flashing back to the end—or,…
