Leprechaun In the Hood movie review

leprechaun-in-the-hood

“A friend with weed is a friend indeed, but a friend with gold is better, I’m told.”

Neither before nor since has an opportunity like  Leprechaun In the Hood been so squandered.  A magic flute, Ice-T and Warwick Davis as the Leprechaun should be the realization of an alchemist’s dream, but instead, it’s just a bunch of oregano sprayed with Raid.   Read the rest of this entry

Leprechaun 4: In Space movie review

leprechaun-4-in-space-lightsaber

THIS.

Leprechaun 4: In Space is just as awesome and ridiculous as it sounds.  It may not be the best of the franchise, but it’s the ballsiest Leprechaun movie up to this point.  Read the rest of this entry

Leprechaun 3 movie review

leprechaun-3-elvis

Do not adjust your sets – that is, indeed, Elvis with the Leprechaun.

Imagine you sit down to write Leprechaun 3 and you say to yourself, “The only thing holding this franchise together is Warwick Davis; we’ve already done a cabin in the woods movie, then we shifted it to the city… where I can I set this flick so it’s up against an even more color background than my title character and take advantage of Warwick Davis’ charm?”   Such is the brilliance of the Leprechaun series.

Leprechaun 2 movie review

leprechaun-2-movie-review

“Try as you may, try as you might, I’ll be licking your face tonight!”

Leprechaun might be the franchise no one asked for, but this second installment goes beyond the claustrophobic confines of the first movie and delivers a charming slasher that might come up short, but moves along well enough.  Read the rest of this entry

Leprechaun movie review

Just when you thought it was safe to… steal a Leprechaun’s pot of gold.

1993’s Leprechaun may well be the movie from 1993 about stealing a pot of gold starring Jennifer Aniston and Warwick Davis in the title role.  By that I mean this movie is novel because of its cast and the sheer wackiness that it exudes, but otherwise, it’s a below average flick.  Read the rest of this entry

Jaws 3 movie review

jaws-3-shark

This is not a bad image; the effects in this movie are just terrible.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the movies… it’s Jaws 3-D, which isn’t just bad, it’s bad for a Jaws sequel, which is incredible.  Read the rest of this entry

Great Movie Moments – A Nightmare on Elm Street: Come to Freddy!

A-Nightmare-on-Elm-Street-Come-to-Freddy

Sometimes, a movie has a scene in it that transcends the movie itself.  A Nightmare on Elm Street has several of those scenes, but here’s my favorite.  “Come to Freddy!” is one of those Great Movie MomentsRead the rest of this entry

Wes Craven’s New Nightmare movie review

new nightmare-nosferatu-shadow

This shot seems to pay homage to Nosferatu.

Wes Craven is a dude who thought outside the box; that’s how we got A Nightmare on Elm Street in the first place.  He started pitching a form of Wes Craven’s New Nightmare as early as part 3 (rather than do Dream Warriors) because it was already getting stale for him.  This movie was so ahead of its time, the audience didn’t know what to make of it, but with hindsight comes clarity.  Read the rest of this entry

Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare (A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 6) movie review

freddys-dead-final-nightmare-on-elm-street

“I’ll get you, my pretty!  …Seriously though, are we really doing this?  How ’bout I just jump over a shark and get it over with?”

The first minute or so of the trailer shows so much promise, but everything that follows is what you really get from Freddy’s Dead:  The Final Nightmare: an action comedy with zero scares.  Didn’t see that coming, huh?  Well, I guess after part five’s mixed bag, we should have!  Let’s take a closer look at the movie that ended the A Nightmare on Elm Street series… for a while.  Read the rest of this entry

Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child movie review

There are movies like Dream Master, which could easily be fixed, and then there’s the next sequel in the Nightmare on Elm Street parade of films, The Dream Child.  This one just blows in a general way.  Read the rest of this entry
