    1917

    ★★★★

    “Down to Gehenna, or up to the Throne, He travels the fastest who travels alone.“

    Sorry I’m so late to last years Oscar party on this one. Don’t let the rating fool you all if you are a die hard fan for this film. I obviously loved this film. Roger Deakins is my favorite cinematographer of all time and his work in Blade Runner 2049 was a major factor to why it’s my favorite movie of all time and he…

  • Coraline

    Coraline

    ★★★★

    Wow, I can’t believe I missed out on this gem for so long. My girlfriend has been urging me to see this for some time now and I finally found time to get around to it. I can’t recall a animation that has so many dark horror elements while at the same time being fun and heartfelt. The animations on a artistic level is by far one of the most unique designs that I’ve seen in a stop-motion animation. The…

  • Crawl

    Crawl

    ★★★

    A nice daughter and father bonding story with the help of some mean gators to realize their value for each other. In all seriousness this was a fun ride if you don’t take the reality of it all and the decisions made by our characters that seriously. Kaya Scodelario does a strong job with her performance. I cared for her enough to get out alive along with her immortal daddy played by Berry Pepper, their performances is really what moves…

  • The Hitcher

    The Hitcher

    ★★★½

    “You wanna know what happens to an eyeball when it gets punctured? Do you got any idea how much blood jets out of a guy's neck when his throat's been slit?”

    I’ll get right into it. Rutger Hauer’s performance is what made this movie so fun to watch. He was so evil that when he isn’t even on screen you can feel his haunting ghostlike presence around every corner. After watching the 2007 remake and not being able to see…

  • Annihilation

    Annihilation

    ★★★★½

    “I thought I was a man. I had a life. People called me Kane. And now I'm not so sure. If I wasn't Kane, what was I? Was I you? Were you me?“

    Returning to one of my favorite Sci-Fi films of the decade with one of the best female driven cast to be put on screen that isn’t a superhero film nor a adaptation of another movie or a remake. Each character has depth. Each performance is phenomenal, especially…

  • The Ritual

    The Ritual

    ★★★

    This film was one big mixed bag for me. I was entertained no doubt, but something was off. As a big fan of the horror genre the thought that there are still spooky forest stories told on film is why I can appreciate this movie for what it is but I can’t sit here and not be honest with you all. I wanted so much more. The story and the setting has so much potential to make this film a…

  • Polytechnique

    Polytechnique

    ★★★½

    This is in no way a bad film. I don’t think Denis Villeneuve is capable of making a bad movie. Performances are outstanding. On a technical level this is a well sounded film and the story is very real and very dreadful. We see three different perspectives for each victims and all three were devastating. It’s just that this kind of subject matter is too brutal for me to watch. I feel helpless. I respect how it shows the life…

  • The Mosquito Coast

    The Mosquito Coast

    ★★★½

    “Once I had believed in father, and the world had seemed small, and old. Now he was gone, and I wasn't afraid to love him any more. And the world seemed limitless.”

    I’ve decided to watch a movie I haven’t seen from one of my favorite directors of all-time. Peter Weir’s films always has this adventurous feel to them and the story subject matter he chooses to direct his films on have always grabbed my attention. As I expected, this…

  • Escape Room

    Escape Room

    ★★★

    Flawless production design. It’s honestly the star of the show. Each room has it’s own unique way about it. The ending of this movie is by far the worst of the worst and almost ruins the movie. Great performances from Taylor Russell who plays Zoey. She did a great job being the introverted geek. Deborah Ann Woll was a believable badass military woman. Tyler Labine reminded me of how my dad would react in a escape room. He brought fun…

  • Terminator: Dark Fate

    Terminator: Dark Fate

    ★★½

    “My past has caught up with me. And...I won’t be back.”

    And I don’t blame you one bit Arnie. Sorry, but I’m about to go on a rant. So basically this movie says that judgment day never happend and skynet never took over the world but yet there was terminators sent from a future THAT NEVER HAPPENED to still be able to kill young John Conor? HOW DOES THIS MAKE SENSE? Better yet, WHY DOES THIS PLOT EXIST? So terminator…

  • Terminator Genisys

    Terminator Genisys

    ★★

    Phew..........

    Give me a moment to recollect my thoughts.....

    ............this movie was so heavy on my brain

    Okay, here we go. The fifth installment to the terminator series.....ehhhhhaaaaaahhh!

    I’ll start with the positives. There was no bad performances but there wasn’t any that was rememberable either. The cast did their best with what little they had. Kudos goes to Emilia Clarke for playing a kickass Sarah Conor. Arnold Schwarzenegger had more lines in this terminator than any other one he’s…

  • Terminator Salvation

    Terminator Salvation

    ★★★★

    ”What is it that makes us human? It's not something you can program. You can't put it into a chip. It's the strength of the human heart. The difference between us and machines.“

    Terminator Series continues with the 4th installment. Last time I watched this was with my dad when it came out in theatre and I remember both of us loving it. Now it’s 2020 and it’s still just as great honestly. I don’t understand why this one gets…
