Trolls World Tour

Matthew Brady - wrote on 07/01/20

I can't believe this movie made history by becoming the first movie originally meant to hit cinemas, but went straight to VOD due to COVID.

Crazy times indeed.

The movie itself isn't anything note worthy to talk about. It's literally one big karaoke-like music video of different songs.

The Hunt (2020)

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 06/14/20

Not worth the controversy it caused and certainly not worth your time, "The Hunt" is your typical gratuitous slasher film and its shallow attempts at satire are insulting regardless of your political perspective.

Proximity (2020)

Slick footage. Substandard storyline.

Paging ET, please phone home.

“Proximity” had potential. The film partially redeemed this but then blatantly fails on a completely different level. With a film about alien abduction, there’s one particular expectation wherewith the film stands or falls. And that’s the look of the spacecraft with which those green men fly around. In many SF movies with the same subject, this is either shown only briefly. Or the design and special effects are so pitifully bad that you wished those …

Never Rarely Sometimes Always

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 04/26/20

As challenging as it is to watch, I was glad to have seen such a compassionate film about such a difficult subject. I not only know a little more about the abortion process, but have gained a moderate understanding of how hard it is to ask for help regarding it, among other things.

We Summon the Darkness

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 04/23/20

The uneventful first act is a bitch to sit through, but once it takes off, "We Summon the Darkness" becomes a moderately entertaining if also very messy Halloween gem.

The Hunt (2020)

A controversial movie? Not to me!

Why would they do something like that?
Same reason elites do anything…
’cause they think they’re better than us.

Can someone please explain why there was so much fuss about the movie “The Hunt“. I understand that the release date has been postponed due to the El Paso, Dayton and Gilroy shootings last year. Let’s just hope that not every violent film suffers the same fate, as the number of mass murders in the U.S., according to the database of the news agency AP, USA Today and …

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ( Portrait de la jeune fille en feu )

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 02/06/20

Every single frame is a work of art and the romance that develops between the artist and her muse is mostly devoid of eroticism, which is a major difference between this film and others that follow a similar narrative path. "Portrait of a Lady on Fire" smartly compares and contrasts femininity in the 1700s with modern feminist values.

The War of the Worlds (1953)

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 07/17/19

Not as interesting as the H.G. Wells novel, but it manages to get the point across.

The War of the Worlds (1953)

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/09/09

Classic Sci-Fi effort. Despite its decided age with dated effects, this is still one of the better early efforts. It's not at all cheesy and actually has a decent story. A must for any fan of 50s sci-fi.

The War of the Worlds (1953)

War of the Worlds

Sadly, the original "War of the Worlds" (1953) was a very unfocused movie. It wavered between trying to be a character drama and a disaster movie, but it really failed at both.

For starters, the lead actor (Gene Barry) portrayed a smug, unlikable character. This made it hard for me to care whether or not he survived, or whether he and Ann Robinson would actually fell in love.

Without a core group of characters to care about, you are forced to focus on the disaster movie elements, which …
