The Survivalist – taut and never boring.

In order to keep me awake during a midnight screening, a movie has to pique my curiosity throughout it’s entire run time. The Survivalist did just that. There are only three characters in pretty much the entire movie and the script has to be constructed in such a way to keep the story going and […]

It NEVER comes at night

I only have a very short review on this over-rated film. It Comes At Night is all atmosphere and no substance. If you are expecting a pay off or a big reveal at the end of the movie after all the slow, tension building set up, well, it never turned up. You will leave the […]

SLEIGHT is a sly no budget sleigh of hand.

I went to see Sleight strictly based on the 36 seconds trailer teaser and the promise of  “Ironman cross with Chronicle” and I have to say, for a no budget movie, this little film manage to capture my attention all the way through until the end when it promise something bigger and the screen cut … Continue reading

Phoenix Forgotten,… easily forgotten

Yet another found footage conceit of a story line with a slightly different spin where there is actual hi def footage accompanying the found footage video scene. The high def quality footage part of the movie follow the missing person’s sister trying to investigate her lost brother, which led to the discovery of a missing … Continue reading

Free Fire – Reservoir Dogs it is not.

I went in to this movie fully aware that the entire movie took place in a room, much like Reservoir Dogs. However, the story is not nearly as interesting or as suspenseful as that Tarantino’s classic. By the second half of the movie, all the actors were crawling through the remaining part of the movie. … Continue reading

The Blackcoat’s Daughter or February?

As a horror super fan, The Blackcoat’s Daughter is quite a discovery. It’s one of those movies that is super atmospheric with a story line that gets darker as it progress to it’s inevitable ending. Kiernan Shipka and Emma Roberts were terrific in this movie. Who would’ve thunk it, two mainstream teen sweethearts can actually … Continue reading

Kristen’s Personal Shopper

This second collaboration between Kristen Stewart and director Olivier Assayas, who also wrote the screenplay, is pure cinema escapism. It is kinda hard to categorize a movie like this because it blend seamlessly the every day drama of the life of a personal shopper to a famous celeb with the her obsession in trying to … Continue reading

Good bye, Wolverine

It’s amazing to think that Hugh Jackman has taken on the role of Wolverine for 17 years. I knew nothing about the X men universe when I watched the first X men. I still do not know much about that universe because I stopped reading comic books since I was 18. That did not diminish … Continue reading

Jordan Peele’s GET OUT lives up to its hype.

Okay, I initially scoffed at the preview of GET OUT because it was shown so many times during previews in movies I watched. I blew off every single advance screening of GET OUT that I was invited to because I refused to stay in line to watch a movie that I was not very interested … Continue reading

Dan DeHaan and His Cure For Wellness

I would watch anything that Gore Verbinski directed. He is  a master in cinema visual styling. All his movie have a very moody and sleek look that is very pleasant to the eyes. This movie is no exception. I don’t think I would categorize this movie as horror because it is not a scary movie … Continue reading
