As I’m sure everyone knows by now, much of the world is currently on guard because of the coronavirus pandemic. Trump, thankfully, declared a state of emergency about the matter on (ironically) Friday the 13th of March. While some say…
It’s the Christmas movie season, where studios typically roll out lots of big blockbusters and awards bait, but much like two years ago, the release schedule is pretty light this year, because the assumption seems to once again be that…
As we all know, August is traditionally a dumping ground for films without much blockbuster potential, so it’s time for us to adjust our expectations way way down and predict which films released this month will be HITs and…
Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of 10 years and 18 movies’ worth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and stars… far too many people to list. Almost every important character from the MCU pops up in this film to face…
I have a confession to make: I’m not a big Thor fan. I’m not saying I hate the character, and there have been periods where I picked up the comic (for example, I was really digging what Jason Aaron was…

“I came for robots, and I left with a migraine.”

Things That Are Sexier Than Adam Levine, People's 'Sexiest' 'Man' of '2013'
“If Shakespeare had had the wherewithal to include giant robots and inter-dimensional portals and storm-generating mystical hammers in his plays, it just might have looked something like this movie.”
Sofie reaaaaally enjoyed her latest trip to the theaters.
“Neveldine/Taylor inject the Ghost Rider sequel with enough energy to keep it from being a total washout; But not even they can counteract the direct-to-video, anything-for-a-paycheck vibe that pervades this whole thing.”
On a special Fright Bites episode of Terror Obscura, Fear Fan takes a bite out of Pacific Rim, the latest from director Guillermo del Toro!
“I’ve been looking forward to Pacific Rim ever since it was first announced. An American take on Japanese kaiju movies and mecha sci-fi directed by monster lover Guillermo del Toro? I was sold three times over before a single piece of advertising was released.”
In this schlocky horror film, Hilary Swank travels to the Louisiana bayou to investigate a series of events that seem to resemble the ten plagues as described in the Book of Exodus, and gets stalked by AnnaSophia Robb, who might be devil spawn.
