Freaky Review

When I was younger, I did not like horror comedies one bit. I felt like the two genres should stay far away from one another and never be melded into this weird funny bloody mess. As I grew older, however, I realized the error of my ways and now I find myself seeking the next best film that fits the bill quite often. Read on to see how Christopher Landon’s Freaky compares to some of the greats we’ve seen over [...]

Happy Times Review

I’ve never been one to plan many things ahead of time. My life is pretty routine, but when I veer off path and do things out of the ordinary, I like for them to be spontaneous. I guess the same can be said for my movie viewing. Every time I try to plan out the next few films I’m going to watch, a new one comes out of nowhere and squeezes its way into said schedule. That is exactly what [...]

Brutal Massacre: A Comedy Review

Brutal Massacre: A Comedy poster

Growing up, I hated horror comedies. I couldn’t understand why anyone would try to mix humor and dread together into this strange amalgamation of emotions. As the years progressed, I ended up being introduced to a whole slew of films from this sub-genre that I actually quite enjoyed and my hatred slowly deteriorated.

The Hunt Review

The Hunt poster

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. I’m referring to Craig Zobel’s somewhat controversial 2020 flick, The Hunt.

The Plot

A group of strangers wake up in a random [...]

Come to Daddy Review

Come to Daddy poster

While my interest for films generally centers around their plot, there are times when the movie could literally be about anything as long as a certain director or actor is tied to it somehow. One of the names on that short list is Elijah Wood. The latest one that features his work and that I couldn’t go without seeing is Ant Timpson’s Come to Daddy.

The Plot

Norval (Wood) hasn’t seen his father since he was a small child [...]
