• The Menu

    The Menu

    ★★★★½

    “Do not eat. Taste. Savor. Relish.“

    The Menu is one of the biggest surprises of the year for me. It’s a truly biting satiric dig at ‘foodie’ culture that’s executed perfectly in terms of direction, pacing, performances, music & so on. 
    Ralph Fiennes is phenomenal as always delivering a captivating villainous  performance that’s just absolutely magnetic. Anya Taylor-Joy plays our lead and she’s just killing it. She stands tall over a pretty great cast and she’s definitely one of the highlights…

    ★★★½

    Crispin Glover’s accent is about as strange as his dancing in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter.

    ★★★★½

    “Sorry for the intrusion friend, if it’s any consolation, I’m right behind you.”

    Loved this episode, David Prior proves himself a horror director to be reckoned with. Between his work here & on The Empty Man, he’s got a whole lot of promise. This episode could’ve been a whole movie.

  • Werewolf by Night

    Werewolf by Night

    ★★★★½

    Do you think the Dark Universe cries itself to sleep knowing that another Cinematic Universe outdid it’s concept with a 50 minute short?
    Absolutely adored it. Never thought I’d see a a tribute to Universal Monsters in an MCU film of all things. I really wished it was longer, maybe we’ll get a Werewolf & Man-Thing film some day down the line.

  • Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

    Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

    ★★★★★

    “Life is like a parody of your favorite song. You think you know all the words and then…surprise, you don’t know anything.

    Weird: The Al Yankovich Story is a true tour de force. Its an incredible soulful biopic that thoroughly explores the life of one of music’s most important musician. Daniel Radcliffe pours his soul into this performance & quite frankly deserves an Oscar for Best Actor. I clapped, I cheered, & I cried throughout. Genuinely one of the year’s best films,…

  • Godzilla

    Godzilla

    ★★★★★

    “Many people were so shocked to see how dark and somber the original Gojira is. This is not a summer popcorn flick but rather a horror movie. Godzilla’s rough skin was mean’t to look like radiation scars, his breath bellowed out pure nuclear radiation. He was essentially a walking stand-in for the atomic bomb, unleashing unspeakable terror without any rhyme or reason…”

    -John Carpenter, Master of Monsters (2022).

  • Fesu Gojira 3: Gaigan Raishū

    Fesu Gojira 3: Gaigan Raishū

    Two Godzilla vs Gigan short films in one day?! And this one uses Tokusatu?! I loved this short film and has a pretty great one take.

  • Godzilla vs. Gigan Rex

    Godzilla vs. Gigan Rex

    Wonderful, just wonderful. A great animated short for the 68th anniversary of Godzilla. Loved the design of Gigan Rex as well as this new Godzilla design. Also it might take place in the same continuity as the Heisei run? Which is really neat!  Also the re-use Ifukube’s extremely powerful track ‘Requiem’ from Godzilla Vs Destroyah was a nice touch. Happy Godzilla day!

  • Black Adam

    Black Adam

    ★★

    “Tell them the man in black sent you…”

    Alright, so I’m gonna keep my review very brief. Within this two hour mediocre movie there’s a great one hour movie wanting to escape. The Rock is great as Black Adam & the entire Justice Society is amazing (particularly Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate). That chunk of the movie where it’s the Justice Society facing a newly awakened Black Adam & trying to restrain him is great! That portion of the movie is solid and…

  • Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    ★★★★

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

    “Do I need a reason? Mr. Kupfer was right, you know. I do love a good joke, and this is the best ever: a joke on the children. But there's a better reason. You don't really know much about Halloween. You thought no further than the strange custom of having your children wear masks and go out begging for candy. It was the start of the year in our old Celtic lands, and we'd be waiting in our houses of wattles…

  • Lot 36

    Lot 36

    ★★★★

    We begin Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities with a solid little thriller with a fantastic central performance by Tim Blake Nelson. Also, Del Toro himself is perfect as a horror host much like Rod Serling in The Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock in Alfred Hitchcock Presents. I’m loving the series so far, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the season holds. It’s delightfully creepy.

  • Scooby-Doo

    Scooby-Doo

    ★★★½

    A glorious guilty pleasure that has some of the most perfect casting I’ve ever seen.
