The House That Jack Built Is A Good One

Matt Dillon is terrifying. Very. There is something to be said about a serial killer with engineering chops. Matt Dillon does him very well. Killing comes to him with a calmness and precision that aligns with the architect and engineer that he is. Well done Matt. Over the many years that I’ve followed him I’d have thought I’ve seen it all. Guess not. Matt can still pull a few new cool tricks out of his goodie bag and this is one fine albeit scary performance from him. [Read More]

Titans Is Good Peeps

God knows I watch a lot of TV… so I’ve been reluctant to pick up on any new shows, unless of course something truly worthy came along. Nothing on that front the last couple of years, but that’s a story for another day. Until I recently tuned into Titans and binge-watched all the episodes with only the yet to be aired season finale remaining. Titans is good stuff and nearer to the darkness of Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy than any other show in the recent past. [Read More]

Kung Fury: A Homage To Over The Top 80s Action And Martial Arts

This is truly funny. Yes it is over the top and ridiculously loud, but it is seriously good too. Even more incredible, it is only 30 mins long. There really isn’t much of a story to speak of. Our hero David Sandberg is both a cop and also the greatest martial artist of all time aka Kung Fury. He must go back in time to kill the greatest evil of all time Adolf Hitler aka Kung Führer.

High Road To China That Doesn't Quite Add Up

High Road to China (1983) is one movie that I spent more time reading the reviews of than actually watching it. Most of the reviews are right, it’s an Indiana Jones wannabe, not done very well. But all said and done, it’s worth a one time watch simply because they don’t make ‘em like these anymore, ans especially if you are a fan of either Tom Selleck or Bess Armstrong. [Read More]

John Worricker Is No James Bond, But Hugely Entertaining

Caught up on an old school spy trilogy starring the wonderful Bill Nighy and ably supported by an excellent ensemble cast of powerhouse performers like Ralph Fiennes, Rachel Weisz, Helena Bonham Carter, Winona Ryder, Ewen Bremner, Christopher Walken, and Felicity Jones to name a few. Now that should be enough to get anyone excited about this TV Movie trilogy… yes that’s made for TV movies. But at the outset let me warn you it’s no James Bond. [Read More]

Solo: A Star Wars Story Isn't Really A Star Wars Story

For a long time I did not want to watch Solo: A Star Wars Story for the simple reason I did not want to get disappointed especially in light of all of the negative reviews. Finally, I did get around to watching it and I still did not want to post a review (well a mini review) because I wasn’t sure I loved it or hated it. Don’t get me wrong, as a standalone action movie Solo gets everything right, at least for the most part. [Read More]

A Quiet Place Is A Good Place To Be

Wow a super awesome horror thriller after a long time makes A Quiet Place a really good place to be. The last movie that was both a high and got the scares going was 2016’s Don’t Breathe. A Quiet Place starts and ends with a family in a world overtaken by monsters where sound is your enemy. Make a sound and the monsters will find you and kill you… stay silent, it’s that simple.

The Meg Is A Giant Shark Movie Without The Scares

Remember Jaws? It will scare you even today. The Meg however is big screen Hollywood entertainment that’s good, but without the thrills and the scares you’d expect from a monster movie about a giant shark. Thankfully, there’s Jason Statham, and the cute Shuya Sophia Cai to save the day. Li Bingbing is there purely for the romance, and Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, and Robert Taylor are all wasted, but hey there’s a giant Megalodon (a really big shark) that will keep you entertained.

Tomb Raider Makes For A Very Weak And Ineffectual Lara Croft

The latest Tomb Raider movie is more of a miss than a hit. The biggest drawback is going in the movie has a weak lead in Alicia Vikander with the characterization/depiction of Lara Croft as weak and ineffectual. Sadly, the movie doesn’t stop there, even Richard Croft has been made into a weakling who has lost his mind. A departure from the game series and not a good one at that. [Read More]

Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan Is A Good Fix For The Weekend Binge Watch

Amazon’s Jack Ryan hit the small screen on the 31st of August, and it’s been a good though not an exceptional ride on the espionage train. Hollywood has struggled in the creation of it’s own version of James Bond, and Jack Ryan has over many years and iterations been a constant endeavor though unsuccessful for the most part. The struggle is mainly due to the fact that Jack is an analyst and not a superspy. [Read More]
