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.

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.

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