Rating: R Stars: Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, Samuel L. Jackson Writers: Josh Stolberg & Pete Goldfinger Director: Darren Lynn Bousman Distributor: Lionsgate Release Date: May 21, 2021 SPIRAL: FROM THE BOOK OF SAW doesn’t have a Roman numeral in its title. Even so, it is the ninth film in the SAW film series, which began with the original SAW in 2004, directed by James Wan, and written by Leigh Whannell from a story they crafted together. Like a lot of franchises that start with a movie that was originally intended as a standalone, the SAW films became a […]Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Lin Shaye, Tobin Bell, Chester Rushing, Erin Sanders, Mike C. Manning, Sloane Morgan-Siegel, Judd Lormand Writer: Patrick Stibbs Director: Timothy Woodward Jr. Distributor: Cinedigm Release Date: October 30, 2020 THE CALL is a generically-titled but otherwise solid horror movie. It has a decent premise, a good set-up that makes the right revelations at the right times, and smart casting in two key roles. We’re in 1987, either because the filmmakers didn’t want to deal with the Internet and smartphones, or they just like the styles. They certainly go with the ‘80s ethos of having actors who […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins Alexander Calvert, Emily Swallow, Steve Bacic, Nicole Munoz, Sara Southey, Meghan Drew, Adam Beauchesne, Mark Dozlaw Writer: Davy Perez, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Matt Cohen Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: October 15, 2020 With so few episodes left to go, it’s a little odd that the SUPERNATURAL segment “Gimme Shelter” seems to inch the series arc along only slightly. Yes, the case of the week kinda/sorta has something to do with Castiel’s (Misha Collins) emotional journey, but a lot of it moves Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam […]Read On »

Release Date: Nov. 18, 2011 The original 2006 HAPPY FEET had the amusement factor of singing and dancing penguins, along with a nice ecological message. Some people objected to that message served with the music, so HAPPY FEET TWO has drastically scaled back on its observations about the havoc humans are wreaking across the planet. […]Read On »

INSIDIOUS on the other hand, made me sweat. I literally sweat […]Read On »
