The Last Jedi #3 doesn’t offer much new, and the artwork is almost on par with a newspaper comic strip, but for what it’s worth, here’s our review.

Movie Review: ‘Hotel Artemis’

June 11, 2018 at 1:59 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

To put it simple, Hotel Artemis is a mediocre action movie with a sci-fi edge to it. It has a great cast with characters wasted on bad writing. The idea of the movie is interesting, but the story is pretty weak. It’s not a movie I’d recommend to anyone unless you have a free pass and you’re bored.

Movie Review: ‘Hereditary’

June 8, 2018 at 12:03 am | Posted in horror, Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

Let me start by saying Hereditary is one of the creepiest, dark, evil movies I’ve seen in a long time. It’s the kind of movie that will stick with you and haunt you at night. You won’t feel quite safe in the dark for a bit. However, this is not a movie for religious people as you will not like the ending.

The movie opens with an obituary for the grandma. That sets the mood of this film. It’s not your standard horror film. All the standard setups, the standard tricks, this movie side steps those. There’s a couple of things you’ve seen before, but the feel of the movie, it’s very different. In fact it’s a really slow burn at first. It introduces you to the characters, yet there are clues even at the beginning that something is not right. There’s more going on than what they’re telling you. And throughout everything, there is an oddness. All of the characters are a little odd, some more so than others. There are dark turns in the movie that keep your interest, but they keep you on your toes not knowing where things are going. In fact the storytellers behind this film keep their cards very close to their chest until the end. That’s when they lay it all out. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Hereditary’…

Movie Review: ‘Action Point’

June 7, 2018 at 12:01 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

The trailer for Action Point looked pretty funny. It looked like a comedy that could work. Sadly, this film failed to deliver. There’s not a lot of laughs, the story is mediocre, and, well, it’s not one I’d recommend checking out. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Action Point’…
