This isn’t a perfect show, but it’s made major improvements. Each episode so far has focused on the supernatural first and the very unrealistic L.A.P.D. second. As long as the writers keep us focused on Lucifer and Family and keep the religious storyline going, Lucifer will be a show worth watching. [Read more…]
Smartly marketed as not necessarily having a connection to the 2014 movie Ouija, 2016’s Ouija: Origin of Evil is a surprisingly not bad little horror film. It’s all the more of a surprise considering the poor reputation of the original. [Read more…]
Despite glaring plot issues, the horror element did pick up once people of import started getting killed and captured. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to keep me from playing Candy Crush on my phone, during the rest of the movie.
Part of the reason why is that even though the horror got better, there were still so many questions about motive and background that nagged at me the entire time. [Read more…]
Noah and Daren enjoyed the documentary, and thought while it tends to repeat in places, there’s no denying the excitement that the cast had in making this, and how they truly believed that this film was going to be released. [Read more…]
This collection is a labor of love for a lot of people, and the extras in this set show how much everyone involved loved being a part of this project. [Read more…]
I wanted to love Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. The trailer was spectacular and it looked especially compelling. The concepts are interesting and the characters are imaginative. However, there were flaws in the movie which meant it delivered less than was promised. I liked it and it was enjoyable but didn’t reach its full potential. [Read more…]
Find your flock. The tagline tells you everything you need to know about the theme of this movie. It is about finding family, no matter who they are, whether they are yours biologically, through adoption or friends of the soul. That is the heart of this movie and families watching it will love that message. [Read more…]
While this sequel was better than Book of Shadows, it failed living up to the original. From the acting to the direction, everything in the first Blair Witch was better. That’s too bad because the last twenty minutes of this film deserve a little recognition for it’s effectiveness. [Read more…]
With every new release, my disdain for horror films swells with contempt. Lifeless CGI and high production values have reduced this storied genre into a bag of monotonous tricks and repetitious cliches. However, every now and then a great film is released which re-energizes my enthusiasm and hope for the future. [Read more…]
Yes, zombies have been done to death, and this movie doesn’t really break any new ground, but this one is a solid experience, and it’s refreshing to see something put together this well.
So if you’re looking for something that’s suspenseful, claustrophobic, and has a lot of action scenes, I’d recommend giving this one a look. [Read more…]
It’s the characters and the storyline that keep me coming back for more. And I really love the actors involved. It’s a testament to how well done the show is that I want more screen time for almost all of the main supporting characters. I’d like them all to have to be on Dutch’s ship so that we could see them all the time. [Read more…]
Kubo and the Two Strings is not your ordinary animated film and if you are looking for a Disney type film, this might not be for you. But I found it beautiful and heartwarming with excellent use of stop motion effects. [Read more…]
