X-Files Plus One Review

For the first time ever in the history of the X-Files, this show felt hammy.  The premise of the episode “Plus One” revolves around a pair of brother/sister mentally ill psychic killers, so… Continue reading

Hidden TV: Knightfall (2017) on the History Channel

The little known TV show Knightfall (2017) tries to mix intrigue, action, and history into an engaging show, and does so with a little bit of success.  The weakest thing about this series… Continue reading

The X-Files Returns and It’s Something, Alright

I’m a really big X-Files fan and I could nitpick the first episode with the same guile in which I attack B-Movies, but that’s not gonna happen, and I didn’t think it would… Continue reading

Great Debate: Is there a Star Wars contraversy?

I’m not sure who stared this “thing”, but Vanity Fair and other “news” organizations are now passing around a Star Wars Backlash story to see if anyone will click on it.  This is… Continue reading

Why am I 100% right all the time?

I was pretty spot on with my Last Jedi predictions, I gotta admit.  Is that because I’m so good or because the movie is so predictable?  Here’s what I said in my original… Continue reading

Star Wars The Last Jedi (2017) Review

I thought this movie was pretty fun, but it does have a lot of flaws.  I can’t decide if The Last Jedi is better than The Force Awakens, but as far as sheer… Continue reading

My top 10 Star Wars: The Last Jedi Predictions

This isn’t really spoilers, but if you don’t like guessing or talking about what might happen in the biggest movie this year, don’t click this and read every last word (yep, reverse psychology). … Continue reading

John Wick (2014) for the Holidays

This movie begins in media res which means in begins in the middle or at the end, as it may be, and that seems like a good opening for a great movie. John… Continue reading

The Orient Express – Wrestling with Faith and Justice

The new 2017 adaptation of Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express looks amazing, there’s no doubt of that, but it leaves me wondering if the movie really captures the spirit of the novel. … Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #1 – Jigsaw (2017)

Jigsaw is back.  Nuff said.  Or is he?  That’s the number one mystery selling this movie, because it certainly isn’t the gore, plot or atmosphere.  And this is not the first time a… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #2 – The Christopher Lee Disco

It’s Dracula man, can you dig it?  Don’t chuckle at Dracula AD 1972 man, just chill.  Kitsch can be cool.   It’s a modern Dracula story, made in response to other contemporary tales like… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #3 – The Vagrant – 80s or 90s?

I think it’s interesting how quickly the 80s disappeared and the 90s appeared with a new age, Saved by the Bell, Melrose Place persona.  The Vagrant (1992) is highly resistant to this trend,… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #4 – Beetlejuice is gimmicks?

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #5 – House of Dark Shadows

This movie was shown on TCM, so it has to be good, right?  House of Dark Shadows is about the return of Barnabas and his interactions with the usual band of Collinsport characters.… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #6 – Hospital Massacre (1981)

So I heard about this movie through reputation and from some slasher fans, but I can’t say I’m impressed.  The one point to this movie is Barbi Benton.   She’s in this movie because… Continue reading
