    A Cure for Wellness Review

    Marking director Gore Verbinski’s return to the thriller/horror genre, A Cure for Wellness is a marathon of a movie both in sheer length and the narrative structure. This highly stylized film is full of breathtaking cinematography, haunting sounds, and gorgeous set/costume design...

    John Wick: Chapter 2 Review

    When it comes to action movies it’s quite difficult to stand out amongst the crowd, especially given that films are getting bigger, bolder, and more expensive thanks to the sheer level of superhero movies flooding the market. When John Wick released back...
  • Rings review

    Rings Review

    **This Rings Review may contain spoilers.** The Ring has always been an odd horror film series as it can never truly escape the ties it has to the original Japanese counterpart Ringu. Despite producing one decent remake and a rather poor sequel,...
  • Resident Evil

    Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Review

    **This Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Review contains spoilers.** It’s been five years since the last Resident Evil film graced the big screens and for many it seemed like this six movie film series would not actually receive an ending. Yet, much like the now critically hailed Resident Evil...
  • Split Review James McAvoy

    Split Review

    Split has always been an odd movie as the premise itself sounds genuinely interesting and unique, however, there is always that looming shadow of M. Night Shyamalan that has weighed down expectations. Even with his last film, The Visit, being quite an enjoyable movie it was hardly enough to...
  • The Bye Bye Man

    The Bye Bye Man Review

    While every year sees a lot of horror films released, one of the most hyped so far has to be The Bye Bye Man. After a rather exhausting trailer run and social media campaign, there was a lot to live up too, especially...
  • Underworld Blood Wars Review

    Underworld: Blood Wars Review

    When it comes to vampire movies audiences tend to get a hit or miss experience, especially since the Blade series ended and Twilight took over the mainstream. Now, back after a 4-year absence, the Underworld franchise seeks to deliver bloody vampire vs...
  • Railroad Tigers

    Railroad Tigers Review

    When it all clicks, Railroad Tigers is an amusing, entertaining action movie that embraces both war and western film genre tropes. Set during the early 1940s when Japan still occupied China, director Ding Sheng gives us a highly stylized look into this troubling time period that doesn’t concern itself...
  • Assassin's creed movie review

    Assassin’s Creed Review

    Video games and Hollywood have had a rather strenuous relationship given that almost every live action adaptation of a game has only ranged between just okay and a total garbage fire. Yet, for some time gaming’s biggest properties have been left untouched,...
  • rogue one review

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review

    Author’s Note: Given the massive following and draw of Rogue One, we will be avoiding heavy discussion of the plot for the sake of spoilers. While it will be mentioned, for the convenience of the reader, I won’t be delving too deep into the actual beat by beat story structure...
  • incarnate review

    Incarnate Review

    **This Incarnate review contains spoilers.** On paper, Incarnate sounds like a really smart and clever idea for a horror movie that has the chance to subvert our usual expectations. Instead of basing most of the action in reality, director Brad Peyton decides to bring...
  • fantastic beasts movie review

    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Review

    The Harry Potter series has helped define both the modern fantasy genre and helped kickstart virtually every Young Adult novel’s film adaptation into high gear. Even though it has been several years since the last movie within this universe, Fantastic Beasts and Where to...
