    "You can't outrun who you really are..."



    Even though the typical/expected MCU formula is still completely intact here, Destin Daniel Cretton's 'Shang Chi and the Legend of the 10 rings', still proves to be unique enough to stand tall on it's own. With some truly incredible camera work, fight choreography, and yet another amazing soundtrack under it's belt. Heavily and welcomely influenced by a vast array of Jackie Chan films, Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and even the Wachowski…

    "It's time to cut out the cancer..."


    James Wan's latest original vision of horror, 'Malignant' is undoubtedly a divisive one. Possibly his most divisive feature yet in fact. Showcasing Wan at his most self-indulgent, unhinged, and boisterous. Immediately setting a dark, fun, and purposely campy B horror movie tone from the very first scene. With a hard hitting intro, followed by some instantly over the top performances, and laughable dialogue. The first half of the film does comes off a…

    ★★

    Who's blood will the axe taste next?



    Almost unbelievably bad on a dialogue and acting standpoint. With an overly misogynistic tone, even for it's time. What slightly saves it is the surprisingly solid score, a few decent kills, and the unintentional hilarity of it all. Kinda feels like a lazy Friday the 13th meets 1995's Hackers type of mess lol. Just with much lesser production values underneath it's hilariously cringey, yet admittedly entertaining belt. So I still had some fun with Jose Ramon Larraz's 'Edge of the Axe' in the end. Definitely Recommended to die hard B movie slasher fans for sure.

    "I'm gonna slash and gash, cut another hole in your ass. I spill blood on the walls, then play tennis with your balls. If the phone rings, don't answer the call. Gonna slit your throat, fuck you like a goat, peel your foreskin off and make a winter coat. Peace!" - The Killer

    "The very emphasis of the commandment, 'Thou shalt not kill,' makes it certain that we are descended from an endlessly long chain of generations of murderers, whose love of murder was in their blood as it is perhaps also in ours" - Sigmund Freud



    Sergio Martino's 'The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh', is widely considered to be a top 5 Gialli by many fans of the genre. For those who may be unfamiliar, Gialli is plural for Giallo. A Giallo…

    "So I had my fur shaved, and got chemical burns up and down my back. Kinda stings aye, but it's not a big deal. It only really hurts when I like breathe or move around or whatever. But I mean at the end of the day it's ok, I mean we do it for the humans right?"


    'Save Ralph' was Directed by Spencer Susser, in collaboration with the Humane Society International. Taika Waititi stars as Ralph, lending his voice for…
