I finally got around to watching Scream (2022), also known as Scream 5. As a longtime horror fan, I’m glad I made it a point to give this film a go. Was it worth it? Watch my video review below for my thoughts on Scream. Enjoy!
Jerry & Marge Go Large is a Paramount+ original movie that is inspired by the remarkable true story of retiree Jerry Selbee (Bryan Cranston), who discovers a mathematical loophole in the Massachusetts lottery and, with the help of his wife Marge (Annette Bening), wins millions and uses the money to revive their small Michigan town. Is this movie worth watching? Read on for my review.
It’s Pride Month, so now seems as apt a time as ever to review Kinsey, the wonderful biopic starring Liam Neeson. Released in 2004, Kinsey was a commercial and critical success, and it featured a star-studded cast. Is it just as good today as it was when I saw the movie in theaters back in 2004? Read on for my thoughts, and rent or buy the movie here.
I’ve been a fan of Mortal Kombat my entire life. I remember playing the original games on Super Nintendo, and then, eventually, on PlayStation, followed by Gamecube, Nintendo Switch, and PC, not to mention handheld versions too. I also have vivid memories of playing Mortal Kombat 4 on an arcade machine when it came out, and I was blown away by the new 3D look that the franchise had adopted. These video games have consistently capture my attention, and I’ve always found them to be more intriguing than Street Fighter. Therefore, I was more than happy to fire up Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge. Read on for my review of this animated film set in the MK universe.
Saw III is the greatest sequel in the Saw franchise and one of the most inspired and well executed horror films I’ve ever seen. Just one year later, in 2007, Saw IV was unleashed upon the world, and it had big shoes to fill. Once again, Darren Lynn Bousman was the director. However, there was a new writing team on board, and they were faced with the massive challenge of continuing and expanding on the intricately woven stories of the original Saw trilogy, which felt like a collective unit. Did the team succeed in making a worthy successor in Saw IV? Read on for my spoiler-filled thoughts.
Evil Dead is the most shocking, violent and bloody horror film I’ve ever seen. This 2013 reboot of the classic film franchise was produced by the original team behind the 1981 cult classic. I can’t compare Evil Deadto its predecessors because I don’t recall seeing any of them from start to finish, which is shocking since I’m an ardent fan of horror movies. Nonetheless, I can tell you with great confidence that this movie is only meant to be seen by those who don’t mind a lot of gore. If you have a weak stomach, steer clear of this one. However, if you’re game, what you’ll find here is a gritty horror film with excellent acting, terrific cinematography and a compelling narrative. I also enjoyed Evil Dead’s score. Whether it was a tender moment or an adrenaline-infused showdown, the music elevated the visuals and amplified the emotion in every scene. For horror fans with a strong stomach, I can’t recommend Evil Deadenough. It’s one of the most disturbing films I’ve ever seen, and also one of the most satisfying.
