October 2018 was a surprisingly respectable month for film, which hasn’t necessarily been the case for some time now. Gravity broke the October box office opening weekend record in 2013, which had only just been previously broken in 2011, by Paranormal Activity 3 of all movies. Audiences were willing to spend money this year, as Venom smashed Gravity‘s […]Read more "The Corporate Mandate"
No one I’m aware of is really excited for this movie, least of all me. That’s what I find truly disturbing about this, I find myself trying to promote this movie to casual moviegoers more than the trailers and other casual moviegoers. 90’s nostalgia is in full force currently, and 20th Century Fox is banking […]Read more "The Predator Review"

Universal has […]Read more "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Review"

It’s the first quarter of the year still, so there’s not much residue worth dusting off, making it an oasis for […]Read more "Roger’s Disappointed Annihilation Viewing"

It’s why a moviegoer mocked the dramatic tone to the plot of Cory Finley’s barbarous directorial debut; this kind of angst is nothing new to the film nerd. A statement on mental health, friendship, femininity, and something to do with horses, Thoroughbreds thoroughly […]Read more "Thoroughbreds Review"
