  • Krampus



    Michael Dougherty, who previously directed Trick 'r Treat, made an awesome Christmas horror film in the form of Krampus, filled with plenty of B-movie humor and sharp commentary on the pratfalls of Christmas when we're too busy arguing and hating each other, brilliant visual effects that harken back to 80s horror movies, and a pretty solid Christmas morality tale as well.

    Krampus is the Gremlins of the 21st Century, and is just as awesome as Joe Dante's holiday classic.

    Almost Christmas


    Didn't expect much out of this movie, but what I got was a sweet little Christmas film that's funny when it needs to, is heartwarming when it needs to, and Danny Glover got to say his iconic Lethal Weapon line in this, which is always a plus.

    Earns an extra star for Mo'Nique's scene-stealing performance as Aunt May.

    An animated animal movie, made by the crudest animation studio ever, with no dialogue coming from our main horse characters except some cheesy narration from Matt Damon, a 100% serious plot with very little slapstick gags, alongside some top-quality and jaw-dropping mixtures of 2D animated characters and CG-animated landscapes, some high emotional trauma with sequences that rival How to Train Your Dragon, and the bizarre collaboration of music provided by Hans Zimmer and Bryan Adams of all people.

    One of DreamWorks' most spectacular and highly underrated films to date.

    King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

    I will never understand the mentality of modern filmgoers. They'll say they want something original and different, but when an original and different film comes out, they'll complain that it is weird, silly, and bonkers, even though the sequel or remake they just watched has the same elements and the love the living crap out of it (like Guardians 2, for instance).

    That's why I'm bummed that films like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword flopped, because in my eyes,…
