The story felt rushed and lacked pacing, yet also managed to bore. Lin Shaye’s acting talents seemed wasted on a story that could have fleshed her character out but instead took a shallow, comic-book approach. As a fan of two of the other Insidious films, I found this one to be a big letdown. [Read more…]
We’re scifi fans, horror fans, and we have opinions.
Here’s a list of what a few of us think are the best and most entertaining movies and shows that 2017 had to offer! [Read more…]
Noah and Daren weigh in on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, following on from their disappointments The Force Awakens. They approve of the story going in different directions and feel the overall story is improved from TFA. Is the Star Wars universe suffering from repeating the same story again? Does the success of that same […]
Noah & Daren were enthralled by Coco, with both the story and the animation, and how immersive and integral the music was to the story. Given the runaway success of this film when it opened in Mexico last week, and the enthusiastic responses so far in the US, could we start seeing more animated features with international flavor in the near future?

The guys feel this one was geared more towards the action movie fan rather than the die-hard DC Superheroes fans, or fans of the old “Justice League” titles, or even the animated series. The appeal is there for one section of fans, but for older comics fans, maybe not quite as much fun. [Read more…]
Noah and Daren quite enjoyed Thor: Ragnarok, the third Thor movie and newest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but they also feel that the heavier emphasis on comedy may sacrifice a little too much of the character Thor that comics fans have come to know and love over the years.

Noah and Daren tackle The Snowman, one of those films that straddles the suspense/horror fence, and although the novel was very good, the film falls flat and then some. [Read more…]
I expected this film to make me think I was watching Groundhog Day but at a certain point turn out to be something very different. It’s not different, it really is just Groundhog Day redone with a murder mystery thrown in. If that’s what you’re looking for, this movie should fit the bill. [Read more…]
It’s a good Halloween movie, one that teenagers should see if they’re having a holiday slumber party. As a piece of film narrative I don’t think it’s that strong, but as a Halloween thrill-ride it’s pretty decent. Be aware that there are two post-credit sequences so if you’re a fan of those then be sure to stay all the way through until all the credits have finished rolling. [Read more…]
As someone who has never read the books I cannot speak to whether or not it does justice to its source material. The little I have heard from fans of the book does not seem positive towards the movie. However, as someone who is not already invested in this world I found quite a bit to enjoy. [Read more…]
Noah and Daren are huge comic book fans and have been looking forward to this film for a long time, despite not being familiar with the original comic.
But the lack of chemistry between the main characters and the dialogue falling flat adversely affected the enjoyment of the visually stunning parts of the film. [Read more…]
Noah and Daren enjoyed this reboot of Spider-Man, and while they appreciated the fun and bringing Spider-Man closer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe formula that fans seem to enjoy more, they were also disappointed by some of the story choices and by the villain, Vulture. [Read more…]
