Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 could have been worse


See the video of the terrifyingly awful "baby"
Nov 05
Back when I reviewed The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, I admired the saga's balance of tones (I gave the film a 75, and still stand by it to this day) but I absolutely hated the film's cheap CG effects. For the first ... read

Jim Jarmusch on his vampire movie Only Lovers Left Alive

I'm a fan of Jim Jarmusch's movies. He has a weird way of turning moments of boredom into something complicated and interesting, as seen in Stranger Than Paradise, Down by Law, Night on Earth, and Mystery Train. He's also cap... read

The final film of the Twilight Saga somehow ends with both a bang and a whimper.
There's no real way to predict what you're getting when watching one of the Twilight films. You either get a surprisingly corny and fun film (the first Twilight) or you'll get something severely disappointing like Breaki... read feature

Ridley Scott's I Am Legend vampires are better than CG


Nov 12
Francis Lawrence's I Am Legend (starring Will "Movin' in with your Auntie and Uncle in Bel Air" Smith) was okay. Not bad, not great, but okay. Part of the reason my enjoyment for it was tempered was that the vampires had cha... read
