John Krasinski already has plans for A Quiet Place 3

It's no huge secret that A Quiet Place is almost certainly going to be a franchise that will long outstay its welcome and tarnish the reputation of the original like oh so many sci-fi and horror franchises do. The screenwriters for the firs...

Review: Color Out of Space

Richard Stanley's 1990 cult hit Hardware and follow-up Dust Devil have careful threads that artistically weave pulp, world-building, and theme together. Hardware is at once a grimy hard rock music video of a killer robot movie and a trippy,...

Doctor Who Recap (Season 12, Episode 4)

I was so happy to see the Doctor and friends go on an adventure with Nikola Tesla this week. It was a real treat, and a major step up from last week. I enjoy when Doctor Who takes the time to give us a glimpse into the lives of historical f...

Review: Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker

In my review for The Force Awakens I concluded by saying that the film was a strong blend of nostalgia and modernity, mixing our love for the original trilogy with a host of new characters and ideas. My concern then was that Disney would no...

Underwater is a movie that takes place underwater

I swear that the name of the movie Underwater, a film which takes place under the water, is not a gag. It's just that the creators literally could not think of anything more clever than just stating the location of the movie. This is the eq...

Review: Nekrotronic

Despite its blasts of gore and streaks of profanity, Nekrotronic has a pure straight-to-cable energy. Its central conceit of demons attempting to use an app game to infect all the world's souls is cute and novel, the sort of idea that netwo...
