The thing about reviewers and critics is that we sometimes get overwhelmed with the sameness of media—and thus crave anything unique.
To call Circle an intense film is to undersell it. Utilizing almost only a single location, this death game story touches upon politics, human nature, mercy, and bigotry. It uses a very simple premise and plays it straight and is one of the best-paced films I’ve seen in a long time.
In defending the modern concept of a vampire, you might assume that I’m defending the Twilight series or other trashy books in the paranormal romance genre. I am not.
This is by no means the only reason someone would like horror, but as Halloween fast approaches, it’s the perfect time to cover “The Escapism of Horror.”
If you’re reading this review of Fear Street: Part 3 – 1666 because you wanted to know if you should watch the whole trilogy, I’ll give you your answer: Yes.
The Matrix Resurrections trailer is here, and it’s honestly better than I was expecting. The action scenes, the slick editing: it’s fun to watch this trailer by itself, let alone what it’ll be like with the actual film.
Well, I was right about Fear Street: Part Two – 1978 on all points. It’s the blood-soaked, overly sexual pastiche that does a lot of strong character work propelled by excellent actors that I expected.
Well, since Fear Street put their movies into three parts, we’ll be doing a series of reviews to cover this nostalgic property. I’ve yet to see anything beyond the first movie and will be reviewing them as I watch them—and then perhaps a fourth overview article with everything in context.
Finally, I got to see Spider-Man: Far from Home after nearly two years. It had been a missing piece in my viewing of the MCU—and I’d been really wanting to see it that entire time.
Infinite is a solid example of the subgenre of action movies where a person discovers they’re part of a secret world. It’s one with a lot of alumni, including The Matrix, Men in Black, and Push. With such examples present, I’m glad to say that Infinite manages to be unique among them and laser focuses on the things it does well.
As alluded to in a recent “It Came from the Archives,” it’s time for a random and sporadic new series where I review between one and three new releases from the YouTube channel Dust.
