Indie Movie Review – Redwood Massacre: Annihilation

Happy Halloween! To start with, I have to say although Redwood Massacre: Annihilation is a direct sequel to 2014’s The Redwood Massacre, I haven’t actually seen it. Next, I have to say that I’m not a fan of the slasher genre, but I can put that aside and give it a whirl for this review. […]

Hobbitses – A Tolkien history – Behind the Lord of the Rings in epic fantasy films

  Typical! Wait decades for a film with hobbits in, and six come along at the same time! At least, that’s how it felt. Like many teens of the time, I had my copy of the single volume paperback edition of The Lord Of The Rings, shortly after it was first published in 1968, having […]

New Movie Review – Bill & Ted Face the Music (before a series rewatch)

Whoa. Bill & Ted 3: Face the Music didn’t suck. Not even decades later. The trilogy finale (one we never actually asked for) in Bill & Ted Face the Music is a worthy follow up to the wacky 80s and 90s time traveling com-fantasies, giving us two slacker characters we grew to love over the […]

Classic Movie Review — Austin Powers 2: The Spy Who Shagged Me

Mike Myers has the best chemistry with himself. This carries through the Austin Powers trilogy, where in each film he plays more versions of himself than before. NOTE: All Classic Movie Reviews have spoilers.  The Spy Who Shagged Me used to be my favorite Austin Powers film, but now it’s kind of offensive Unfortunately, The […]

Classic Movie Review – Gremlins

Gremlins. One of the best non-Christmas Christmas movies ever made. It’s got a bizarre but cemented niche among the classics that somehow stands up after all this time, although Steven Spielberg seemed to be experimenting with genres in those days. Gremlins (1984) isn’t a great movie, but slips into the A range by nature of […]

There’s an E.T. sequel and it’s awesome

I just finished watching E.T. for basically the first time. I only saw it one time in 1982, and 38 years later didn’t remember anything beyond the “Phone Home” shtick. I wrote this grand review about the symbolism in E.T. with a lot of thoughts tending towards the introspective. I had to rewatch E.T. to […]

Ranking the X-Men Movies

Superhero ensemble films owe a huge debt to the X-Men franchise. Without the thoughtful world-building, frequent levity, and sparkling dialog characterizing the best of the X-Men films, we’d have no Marvel Cinematic Universe. No Avengers, no Endgame, no Iron Man!…just somber Batmen parading by in rubber suits. X-Men blew jaded audiences away, until the franchise […]

Matrix 4 – why Keanu Reeves is excited to return to the Matrix

In a recent interview with Variety, Reeves revealed why — after all this time — […]
