Movie review: Countdown

We're going back to Netflix for this movie. The first thing I'll say is this felt like a Netflix original, Blumhouse-produced movie. When I found out it was actually released in theaters (way back in 2019), I was surprised. Maybe you're the kind of person who loves Netflix original horror movies. I'm... not exactly. But … Continue reading Movie review: Countdown

Movie Review: I’m Thinking of Ending Things

Here's the skinny on this movie: Netflix original from 2020, based on a book, over 2 hours long. And, for a movie that's over 2 hours, there really isn't much to talk about. So, let's get started. I've got more movies to watch. The Start This movie can be divided pretty easily into 3 parts, … Continue reading Movie Review: I’m Thinking of Ending Things

Movie Review: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile

This movie caught my eye when it was released a few years ago, during that weird summer where it felt like every serial killer was getting a biopic. That trend seems to have slowed down, and that's probably for the best, but it did at least give us this movie. Zac Efron starring as Ted … Continue reading Movie Review: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile

Movie review: Last Night in Soho

There aren't too many movies I purposefully watch in theaters. I go maybe 3-5 times every year, and usually it's only for movies I've been waiting on, anxious to see them. While seeing some other movie, I saw the trailer for Last Night in Soho, and it definitely piqued my interest. When it released a … Continue reading Movie review: Last Night in Soho

Movie Review: The Lodge (2019)

Picking a movie to watch is turning into the most exhausting decision. You have to choose which streaming service (Netflix? Hulu? .... Peacock?) and then, once inside, you have to choose your genre. And even if you know the genre ("Tonight's a horror movie night"), you still have to pick the actual movie. So many … Continue reading Movie Review: The Lodge (2019)

Movie Review: Aftermath (2021)

Welcome back, scary movie lovers! I'm back with another scary movie review, this time coming from Netflix. Summer vacation is a perfect time for movie-watching, and I found some really good ones to enjoy. (Also some not-so-good ones.) For these reviews, I'm gonna play around with the review format a bit and try some new … Continue reading Movie Review: Aftermath (2021)

Movie Review: The Stepfather (2009)

There's something about horror movies from around 2010... With a few exceptions, like the Conjuring, they're almost always very "of that time." There's no escaping the low-rise jeans, the stereotypical gamer kid, and genre tropes by the dozens. It feels like everybody was making the exact same type of movies, with jump scares, shallow characters, … Continue reading Movie Review: The Stepfather (2009)

Movie Review: Conjuring 3 (And Full Series)

The new Conjuring movie completes one of the greatest horror threequels ever put to film. Not only that, it reminds the audience of how good the first two were, how genre-defining this series turned out to be. I realized I hadn't written a full review of the first or second one, so I'll lump in … Continue reading Movie Review: Conjuring 3 (And Full Series)

Movie Review: A Quiet Place (Pt. 2)

From the instant the lights dim, A Quiet Place 2 is remarkably different. It opens with a brief thank-you video from John Krasinski, who has been extremely understanding of the plight audiences face in returning to theaters. He is earnest and hopeful, both in his message and in his movie. Another thing: There are no … Continue reading Movie Review: A Quiet Place (Pt. 2)
