A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (movie review)

What. The. Hell. Happend?

How quickly can the wheels fall off a franchise? Like they say in baseball, “Your team is only as good as your next day’s starting pitcher,” and in the case of Nightmare movies, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge is the sort of dude who just throws the ball right down the middle at a pedestrian 85 miles per hour and gets annihilated in the first inning. (Baseball, October… synergy!) Read the rest of this entry

Deliver us from Devil? What’s that? (movie poster fun)

deliver-us-from-evil

I’ve never heard of a movie called Deliver us from Devil.  What’s that?  A horror movie, no doubt.

Oh.

I get it now!  You folks are clever!  See, yeah, I see what you did there!  You used the “D” from “Deliver” to make the word “evil” look like “devil” to do a play on the memorable “Deliver us from evil” line from the Lord’s Prayer as a title for your film!

That’s clever!

Here’s the best part of this entire situation: Read the rest of this entry

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984 movie review)

The classic A Nightmare on Elm Street, like many slasher films, was made for just $1.8 million dollars and created a franchise that scared the bejesus out of me as a little kid. Nothing is scarier than Freddy Krueger (the immortal Robert Englund, who I also remember from the original V tv series), the villain who waits to attack you until you’re at your weakest – when you’re asleep! (Spoiler, Freddy invades your dreams and kills you in your sleep. Betcha didn’t know that.) Read the rest of this entry

Avatar (movie review)

Why does Avatar exist? It’s the most pointless movie ever because it’s really just several flicks that everyone already saw cobbled together but taking place on an alien planet instead of earth. Read the rest of this entry

Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is all kablam! BOOM!

So… yeah. Wow.

It seems as though Avengers: Age of Ultron is the beginning of the end of the Age of Heroes (or whatever it’s called in the Marvel Movieverse) and the beginning of a Civil War era… at least, it looks like the heroes are fighting amongst themselves in the trailer. Read the rest of this entry

"Storm's Coming" is my most hated, overused movie cliche

I was starting to do research for a supercut of people saying, “Storm’s Coming” or “There’s a storm coming” from various movies, but Jukka-Pekka Bohm‘s supercut features everything on my list and more, so I’ll leave well enough alone. Read the rest of this entry

Transformers: Age of Extinction (movie review)

Why do I keep doing this to myself? Why do I keep watching these movies? Morbid curiosity, I guess. This time, I saw it for free on a plane, so that’s not much of a sacrifice on my part, and I guess this Transformers movie is better than the other ones, but that’s not saying much.

I told my dog there are going to be three more Avatar movies – here's his reaction

“Hey Conny, guess what?!? There’s going to be three more Avatar movies!”

Aliens (movie review)

FOX wanted to get a sequel to 1979’s Alien out right away, but it didn’t happen until director/screenplay writer James Cameron got it out there in 1986. It was worth the wait! Read the rest of this entry

I told my dog there was going to be a fifth Transformers movie – here's his reaction

“Hey Rocky, guess what?!? There’s going to be a fifth Transformers movie!”
