Critics vs. Audiences: The Disconnect and What to Remember

Critics vs. Audiences: The Disconnect and What to Remember

So “Justice League” is apparently a lackluster film. I haven’t specifically seen it but I do trust the opinions of friends and fellow reviewers who have seen it enough to where I’ve gotten the general idea and feel confidant about where my opinion would fall. Most of them (even those who enjoyed it) say that it has major flaws and issues that technically put it just barely above “Suicide Squad” level in terms of quality. That’s pretty impressive but not…

15 Bad Films In 5 Sentences (or less)

15 Bad Films In 5 Sentences (or less)

I’ve taken a look at many films over the course of my writings. Most have ranged from good to great but few of them has gone in to the outright bad categories. I try not to focus on bad films intentionally mainly because it’s a hamper on my spirit to a degree and these are usually covered fairly well by tons of other reviewers out there more qualified than I am. I also don’t necessarily get my best writing out…

Horror Movie Month: “Vampyr” (1932)

Horror Movie Month: “Vampyr” (1932)

β€œThere exist certain beings whose very lives seem bound by invisible chains to the supernatural. They crave solitude. To be alone and dream – their imagination is so developed that their vision reaches beyond that of most men.”  Let’s end our Horror Movie Month with a movie that crosses boundaries in a similar vein as “House” from last year in that it’s a horror movie from the Criterion Collection. We owe so much in terms of horror films to the…

Horror Movie Month: “Hotel Transylvania” (2012)

Horror Movie Month: “Hotel Transylvania” (2012)

I know I’m technically cheating with one as I would never classify this one as a ‘horror’ film per se. However, I wanted to review something shorter and a little bit more light-hearted as we get closer to the actual holiday of Halloween and this one has been on my mind off and on all year. Originally, I never had any interest in seeing “Hotel Transylvania” whatsoever. I saw the cast, the premise, it’s low score on Rotten Tomatoes, and…

Horror Movie Month: The Classic Mummy Films (1932-1955)

Horror Movie Month: The Classic Mummy Films (1932-1955)

As we continue Horror Movie Month, we look at a continuation (or rather the distant past) of a series that I’ve already tackled earlier in the year. With the release of the new version of ‘The Mummy’ to critical disappointment and failure and every way, shape, and form, I thought it would be fun to look at the past of the Mummy in Universal form. I recently acquired the Blu-ray set of old Universal Mummy films from the black and…

Horror Movie Month: “Session 9” (2001)

Horror Movie Month: “Session 9” (2001)

Let’s step back a decade or so to the year 2001. At a time when horror films were focusing much more on extreme shock value or found footage with the popularity and success of such films such as “The Blair Witch Project”, a little film came out in the first year of the new millennium that wasn’t an overall commercial success but has since achieved popularity and status as a cult film in its own right. It’s one that a…
