GutterballsGutterballs is Canuxploitation at its filthiest. And I mean that in a good way. I mean, not many horror films can advertise death by a maniac with a bowling bag for a mask as he smothers teengagers performing 69 on each other with their own private parts.  Choke on this!  But this film can and ...

BloodshotI’m just going to cut to the chase with this review.  Bloodshot is NOT a bad movie.  It might look familiar to comic book enthusiasts, but it is cool enough in its cinematic glide to deliver plenty of steely-eyed action scenes and incredible visuals thanks to first-time director David S.F. Wilson’s background in  ...

Glass - Movie ReviewM. Night Shyamalan is responsible for one of the most brilliant supernatural thrillers, and one of the most impressive cinematic twists in film history: The Sixth Sense. That film established him as a wunderkind filmmaker and immediately  ...

Exorcism at 60,000 Feet (2019)The new comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson called The Hustle is an almost identical remake of the 1988 classic comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels which starred Michael Caine and Steve Martin - itself a remake of Marlon Brando’s Bedtime Story. I say “almost” because  ...

Aquaman (2018) - Blu-ray ReviewIn order to fully appreciate just how CRAZY Aquaman is, I suggest you being four or five beers deep.  Seriously. DC needs James Wan.  The proof is just how enjoyably bonkers Aquaman is, which Wan directed.  Finally free from the brooding destruction of Zach Snyder’s spin on   ...

The Golem (1920)The first horror icon of cinema has returned!  Or is The Golem, thanks to its design and its use of white magic, the first cinematic superhero?  I guess it comes down to your interpretation of the events in this legendary silent film.  But there is NO arguing of its influence.  From The Incredible Hulk  ...

Mary Poppins Returns - Movie ReviewThere is something very honorable in modesty and not needing to always take credit for the joy one gives to those we love.

Crossbreed (2019) - Movie ReviewSlaughterhouse.  Four Eyes.  Know those names.  Clocking in at 86-minutes of sweat- inducing space madness, Crossbreed will straight up kick your ass.  No, it isn’t another exercise craze with fancy names for pull-ups and squat thrusts.  Crossbreed, directed by Brandon  ...

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) - Blu-rayThe American Ministry of Magic just got stronger.  It had to, of course.  The dark magic of Gellert Grindelwald (a fantastically evil Johnny Depp) is that powerful.  Opening with a flying stagecoach sequence, complete with winged horses and a sky-high jailbreak sequence ...

Multiple Maniacs

Bohemian Rhapsody - Movie ReviewThere are few people in the world who don’t know the name Freddie Mercury, whether you’re a fan of Queen, born after he died, or have lived in a cave forever.

Long Shot (2019)Unlikely, but not impossible.” That’s the tagline for this farcical odd-couple comedy called Long Shot which stars Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen. The tagline speaks to the poor odds of a highly successful, physically attractive, 40-something Secretary of  ...

The Peace Killers (1971)

It’s the fuzz tones, man.  It’s all about the fuzz! What would you do if a producer came up to you and your cousin and said he’d give you $100,000 to make a movie, but it had to be a biker flick and it had to be R-rated?  You’d make that damn movie, of course.  Thus ...

First Man (2018) - Movie ReviewPerhaps the only task more difficult than putting a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth is making an interesting film about the rather uninteresting man who first set foot on the lunar surface.
