    Day of the Dead

    ★★★★★

    George A. Romero's Day of the Dead was largely misunderstood when it was first released in 1985, and that's a real shame. In my opinion, this is Romero's masterpiece. Day is his tour de force.

    Everything about this film is wonderful. Our main protagonist, Sarah (Lori Cardille), is a strong and intelligent character on par with the Alien franchise's Ripley. The supporting cast around her all turn in excellent performances as well, but the most notable one is definitely Joseph…

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    Look, I was becoming one of those people who is experiencing mad superhero fatigue.

    It’s hard saying that because I grew up DEVOURING comic books, drawing superhero coloring pages, and dressing up in cheap polyester costumes and pretending to fight crime in friend’s back yards.

    Michael Myers is back.


    The Halloween franchise has had its incredible ups and it’s severe downs. This is definitely an up.


    Halloween will satisfy hardcore fans with its callbacks and rich connections to the original, but certainly stands on its own as a potent horror experience in its own right. It’s expertly crafted, exceptionally brutal, and sharply written. David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s script was spot-on, and, with Green’s direction, took this film exactly where it needed to go.…

  • The Strangers

    The Strangers

    ★★½

    Let’s be honest, if Liv Tyler rejected your proposal, three murdering psychopaths breaking into your home would be second worst thing to happen to you that night.
