    The Shallows Review
    Posted in: Movies

    Dark water is scary. Like, really scary. It’s a common trend in horror films. And a trend that isn’t likely to fall off anytime soon. But if it does, it’ll be the next example of a horror revival, since the fear of the unknown isn’t something that’s likely to go away. The Shallows is the next in […]

    Love & Mercy Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    As a child, there wasn’t a roadtrip my family took without the Endless Summer cassette playing our way across the endless terrain that my dad insisted on driving. Sure, there were plenty of surf classics on there, but my brother and I were always partial to some of the mid-tape songs such as “Girl Don’t Tell Me.” […]

    Poltergeist: A Retrospective Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies, Stuff You Watch

    Oh, it’s here, and this one hurt. Walking into this, I, like most horror veterans, knew it’d be terrible, but I ended up leaving the theater absolutely mortified and disgusted; mortified by the craptastic quality, and disgusted by the positive reactions of the audience, who probably don’t know what they’re missing in an age where […]

    The Pros and Cons of a Ready Player One Film
    Posted in: Books, Featured, Movies

    Ernest Cline’s ode to all things gaming, ’80s, and nerdy was fated to be a film from the moment it was published. I learned only a few days ago that last month, Steven Spielberg signed on to direct the Ready Player One film that Cline himself and a handful of other screenwriters have been working […]

    Unfriended Review
    Posted in: Movies

    Where to begin with this one… The mere existence of Unfriended feels like an insult to horror altogether. To me, it comes across as a corporate cash in designed to cater to the MTV tweens with unlikable, market-theorized, poorly written high school stereotypes using the latest “hip” technology for cheap scares. Toss in some “happening” […]

    It Follows Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    To describe It Follows as wasted potential would only be scratching the surface. Here you have a setup reminiscent of other classics akin to The Ring, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and even Halloween to an extent, and they’ve managed almost completely squander a good idea. In this critic’s opinion, contrary to the mixed to high […]

    Love and Engineering Review
    Posted in: Movies

    When determining a language for love, we think to the Western Europeans. This refined and chivalrous structure has created a fog over the idea of romance. Romantic languages originating in Spain, France and Italy provide a framework for what we all chase in a partner. With our expectations skewed to a time hundreds of years […]

    Doing it Right: Untangling Spider-Man’s Web
    Posted in: Comics, Featured, Movies

    Well kids, it happened. Rumors had been pointing to this event for a while as cynical logic and studio execs denied its possibility. Spider-Man is finally being brought into the fold. The Web-head will be a part of the extremely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony Pictures will be maintaining final control over the webslinger, and Marvel Studios […]
