Sparkly Batman got game! I am being facetious. Robert Pattiso n has long since proven himself as a more than capable actor, brave and disparate in his choices, and more than capable. Of course his ann...
This may be the toughest film I have ever tried to review without spoilers. It’s hard to believe we are now at the third entry of the MCU ’s Spider-man ‘home’ series (not even accounting for Civil War...
Only three years after Halloween swept the world up in the antics of Michael Myers, John Carpenter reluctantly returned to write the follow up, after pressure from Akkad and especially producer Irwin...
This low budget ($300,000 USD) slasher film, made by a USC graduate in the late 70s, would spawn countless sequels and give its backers some serious profits, the world horror auteur John Carpenter and...
1990’s Misery is one of the finest book to screen King adaptations of all time, in my humble opinion. While this new dearth of King adaptions continues unabated with varying degrees of success or abje...
Some 27 years after it’s release, one might be forgiven for forgetting what a game changer Jan de Bont ’s Speed was. No scratch that, you should remember! Back in the early 90s, the big muscles, full...

Well, this one had a pained and storied journey to the big screen. Filmed in 2017 after three years of developed, and falling prey to 20th Century Fox indecision, this Josh Boone directed X-Men spin-o...
The product of two A-list protégés (at the time) floundering in their careers; a script deemed too dirty by Disney , and not dirty enough by other studios (this was era of sex comedies). Back to the F...
With streaming now taking the lion’s share of the average household’s attention, it is getting harder and harder for the studios to entice us for yet another dip at their titles; especially when a gre...
Films of the ilk of last year’s Ad Astra are always a quandary for me to write about. With the output of most of Hollywood’s efforts being what some might sarcastically call formulaic and digestible,...
2005 saw the end of the prequel trilogy, and what a job it had before it to finally deliver what we’d been promised since the trilogy was announced: the descent of Anakin Skywalker to the dark side an...
Twice now, in different decades, Star Wars has resurrected itself and rewarded Lucas handsomely. With the recent sequel trilogy now behind us, the parallels between their reception and the era of the...
