The Tax Collector Review
My last review opened with a statement about my yearly losing battle of conducting all-month-long horror marathons. This year, although it’s only been four days, I can say that I’m doing well. While I’m sure I will be watching a genuine horror film tonight at some point, I wanted to take a break and discuss a different genre film — David Ayer’s The Tax Collector.

The Hunt Review
The other day I wrote a review for the last film that I had seen in a movie theater before this current global pandemic hit us all. Now, as I slowly attempt to get back into writer mode fully, I find it fitting to write about the first film I watched digitally once my quarantine took effect.

More than 70 years after LAPD officer Alex Rain failed to stop renegade cyborgs, humans have become enslaved. Scientists have developed a new DNA strain that can help in ending the Cyborg Wars for good [...]
While horror will always be my favorite, there are plenty of other genres that I actually enjoy, others that are just as fun. When done right, some of the most fun can be had with a clever combination of action and sci-fi. That is exactly what we get with Albert Pyun’s Nemesis.
Troubled officer, Alex, is caught in the middle an ongoing struggle of power between systems cowboys, bio enhanced gangsters, and cyborg outlaws, when he is [...]
The Predator Review
Happy New Year to all of you sick and depraved horror nuts out there! Here’s to hoping that 2019 is full of good health, happiness, and tons of horror and sci-fi goodness! There are still a ton of flicks that I need to cross off of my 2018 watch list, so let’s start the new year off with another from the past few months, Shane Black’s The Predator.
An alien ship has landed on Earth once again. [...]
