    A Babysitter's Guide to Monster Hunting

    ★★

    Tom Felton, I’m so sorry baby.

    *Hanging out with my 7 year old nephew and he wanted to watch this. Otherwise I don’t think I’d have made it more than 10 minutes.

    Batman Forever

    ★★

    Honestly. How did they go from Burton’s urban gothic to Schumacher’s neon garbage?!

  • The Glorias

    The Glorias

    ★★

    Julie really out-Taymor’d herself this time. The Glorias straddles a bizarre line between being an ambitious meditation on the life of an icon and the blandest of biopics throughout its incredibly bloated runtime. Politically I agree with everything this film has to say but it’s just SO damn sloppy in the execution. Even legendary cinematographer, Rodrigo Prieto’s work is so utterly lacking that I had to do a double take when I saw he shot this. Things liven up when…

  • Scoob!

    Scoob!

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Scoob! peaks with Lil Velma’s RBG Halloween costume 5 minutes in. It isn’t even fair to call this a Scooby Doo movie. Not really. There is zero mystery involved and if there’s not a mystery to solve it just ain’t Scooby Doo. Instead it’s a pretty lame attempt at a big HBCU (Hanna Barbera Cinematic Universe) animated sci-if action movie... which could maybe work down the road if they’d bothered to lay out the pieces with individual properties.

  • The Babysitter: Killer Queen

    The Babysitter: Killer Queen

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This was going to be a 1.5 star review until Samara Weaving ascended from that lake like the queen that she is and blessed us with those last 10 minutes. 


    Very much feels like a cheap direct to DVD sequel where they miraculously managed to book the original cast and director (the original writer, Brian Duffield does not return and he is sorely missed) but the tone is just not there. Also the brisk 85 minute original compares to the 100 minute runtime of this sequel... Let’s just say I felt those extra 15 minutes.

  • Magic Camp

    Magic Camp

    ★★

    School of Magic.
