The Last Circus (Film Review)

Every once and a while you go to a friend’s house for a movie night and you get blown away. Not just ‘man, that movie was awesome’ good, but ‘how have I existed without seeing this film’ good. That’s what my viewing experience of The Last Circus was like. The Last Circus is a film about clowns. It’s also about war and family and love and revenge and insanity. The […]

Thor: The Dark World (Film Review)

I’ll be blunt. Thor The Dark World is a mixed bag. A supremely mixed bag. It’s a film that feels rushed at almost every turn. It has some interesting moments and some pseudo-great ideas but ultimately fails to succeed on any real level. Thor The Dark World has many many many problems. The chief of which is that it hand-holds the audience too much. From the terrible opening scene where […]

The Burning (Film Review)

In the cult horror circles here in Los Angeles there’s one movie that fanatics obsess over more than most. That movie is The Burning. I’ve been on multiple sets where everyone from the gaffers to the director are chatting about the brilliance of and immense impact that The Burning had on them. The Burning, like many horror films from the 80’s, centers on a group of summer camp inhabitants.  The […]

Almost Human (Film Review)

The Beyond Fest in Los Angeles has been unleashing some exquisitely interesting films upon their audiences. With engagements such as showing a slew of Dario Argento’s film, having cult favorite horror rock band Goblin play, and showing Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut with a Q & A with Clive Barker the Beyond Fest has set an extremely high standard. On last friday Beyond Fest chose to show a double feature of […]

No, It’s Really Good: Predators (Film Review)

The Alien and Predator have undergone some very extreme ups and downs. From studio mismanagement to financial disaster these two franchises have experience just about every snag known to Hollywood. From the brilliance of the initial entries into the series, to the disappointing Predator 2, the so good it’s almost unbelievable Aliens, the jumbled mess that is Aliens 3,and  the complete and utter train wreck  that is Aliens: Resurrection. After […]

Cartridge Family: The Battle For Employment (Film Review)

Welcome to your new favorite web series: The Cartridge Family. The Cartridge Family asks a simple question, ‘what would happen if your three favorite video game characters were suddenly transported to the real world?’ Simple. They’d have to get jobs. In this quick moving comedic short director William Rot and writer Jackson Stewart throw you head first into world where Twink, Roboman, and Sergio are struggling to find jobs. If […]

Leviathan (Film Review)

Peter Weller is one of those actors that I’m so intrigued by that I’ll pretty much watch him read the phone book. He straddles the line between leading man and quirky supporting character.  Weller, most famously known for portraying Robocop and Buckaroo Banzai, plays the leader of a deep sea mining crew who encounter a soviet submarine wreck on the ocean floor. The crew discover some bizarre cargo, bring it […]

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (Film Review)

Agents of Shield premiering on ABC is a massive step for branded entertainment. It’s the first time that a successful comic book franchise has taken their exploits to the small screen, kept continuity, and had prominent ‘A-list’ movie stars guest star. It’s a literal miracle that this show has made it to production, let alone be released, and has been proven to be a massive success with over sixteen million […]

No, It’s Really Bad: Star Trek Nemesis (Film Review)

Recently, Star Trek Into Darkness was voted by a crowd of Star Trek convention goers as being the worst Star Trek film of all time. This is unconscionable to me. Absolutely astounding. Star Trek Into Darkness had some plot holes, but it wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t Star Trek V The Final Frontier. Did everyone just sleep through Insurrection? Where were you when Nemesis came out? I willingly watched that […]

Ultraseven (Film Review)

Ultraseven is the second installment of the long running Japanese film and television franchise based on the television character Ultraman. Ultraman, and Ultraseven of course, is an amalgam of western super hero archetypes and japanese moral and ethical codes. The first majorly successful Japanese superhero was named Starman. He was essentially a superman archetype. Ultraman, following in Starman’s footsteps, was also deeply influenced by the big blue crusader. Ultraman was […]

The Creature Walks Among Us

The Universal Monsters are almost as ubiquitous today as they were 70 years ago when they first appeared on the silver screen. Built on the stirring performances of Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, and Lon Chaney Jr  the Universal Monsters are now cultural icons. The Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Invisible Man, The Mummy, Dracula and The Creature from the Black Lagoon all appear regularly in pop culture. The monsters are […]

No, It’s Really Good: The Shadow (Film Review)

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow Knows. The 1994 big budget feature film adaptation of the seminal radio/pulps/comics/serials character known as The Shadow was, at the time considered a faliure. It failed to launch a video game, toy, and clothing line all designed to take your hard earned 1994 money. The film was panned  by critics, and failed to make enough money to justify […]

Hollywood Family Thunderdome

Hollywood seems to be dominated by famous familial dynasties. From John Huston and his children Angelica Huston and Danny Huston to Kirk Douglas and Michael Douglas to the Smith/Pinkett-Smith children cadre. Being born into fame and stardom isn’t a guarantee that it will stick, but it’s definitely a good way to start your career. In the 90’s there was only one true Hollywood family that appeared in every film made […]

Agent 88 (Film Review)

The internet is the great equalizer. Literally. So many interesting projects are coming to fruition  thanks to crowd funding sites like Kickstarter and GoFundMe. Previously, the internet was a means to distribute your work and connect with an audience. Now you can actually convert that audience into revenue. That’s exactly what filmmakers Digger T Mesch and Jan Utstein-O’neill did with their film Agent 88. Agent 88 is the story of […]

You’re Next (Film Review)

You’re Next is, quite possibly, this year’s most hyped horror film. Lion’s Gate has been plastering posters all over Hollywood. They’ve been hyping and touting the film as The Next Big Thing in the horror world for who knows how long. Those damn animal masks are everywhere. Unfortunately, the films poorly constructed first act and muddled third act prevent it from being the stellar horror innovator that we’ve all been […]
