Review: Annihilation

Annihilation is one of the best recent print to film adaptations. Strangely enough, this is not because it’s entirely faithful to the source material. Far from it. Sure, the bones might be same, as they are between any two human being...

The Jurassic Dead has trailer, zero originality

Michael Fassbender to star in Hollywood Kung Fury sequel

Kung Fury, for the uninitiated, is a 2015 crowd-funded short film that pays homage to 80s cop and martial arts movies. It's solid gold shit, the best of bad movies, but coming in at only 31 minutes in length, it's never been able to call it...

Super Bowl TV spot for The Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix

Cloverfield was released in 2008 as a found footage alien/monster flick and it was pretty bad. No apologies. Then it had a "sequel" in 2016, 10 Cloverfield Lane, which didn't seem to have much to do with the original (avoiding sp...

Review: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Before we begin, let’s bring all parties to the table, peacefully. When discussing Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the soft-sequel, hard-reboot to 1995’s Jumanji, there are clearly two camps of thought. One camp will p...
