“Have You Guessed Who The Werewolf Is?”

Splatterfest 2015 has come and gone. Junk food was procured and devoured, bad horror movies were rented and voted upon. The movie my friends chose to watch: The Beast Must Die, a 1974 horror whodunnit starring Grand Moff Tarkin and Albus … Continue reading

“Boy, Have We Got a Vacation For You.”

Next year, HBO will be airing a new television series, a genre-bending western about killer robots. Said series is called Westworld, and if “western” plus “killer robots” wasn’t enough to excite you (you clearly unexcitable heathen), it’s also got an interesting … Continue reading

“You Still Picking Your Feet in Poughkeepsie?”

The movies that I tend to find interesting are rarely the kind of movies that win for Best Picture. There are exceptions, obviously (Chicago, Silence of the Lambs, Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), but in general, … Continue reading

“Popularity is the Slutty, Little Cousin of Prestige.”

I watched a trailer for Birdman last June, and I thought it looked, well, interesting. But I didn’t figure I’d actually go see it in theater, mostly because it didn’t seem like my sister’s kind of movie, and also because I’m a … Continue reading

“Do You Remember the Game Plan? The Game Plan Was if They’re Weird, We Leave. This is Beyond Weird.”

Well, I’m home alone and will continue to be alone all night. It’s dark. And it’s very nearly a full moon. I guess it’s time to start watching horror movies again. Sadly, I think my expectations might have been a … Continue reading

“I Am Catwoman. Hear Me Roar.”

The Avengers was awesome. This must be said. (And then repeated. And then possibly even sung.) But The Avengers is not the only gigantic superhero movie coming to a theater near you this summer. There’s a certain trilogy by Christopher Nolan that … Continue reading

“First of All, I Don’t Feel Comfortable Talking Business With a Giant Carrying a Shotgun.”

Some people fondly remember Disney movies. Others wax nostalgic about video games. And then there are some people who just miss the good old days of blow-em-up, rock-em-sock-em violence. How has it taken me so long to see this movie?

“I Make Art Until Someone Dies.”

With The Dark Knight Rises on the way, I’ve decided that a viewing of all the previous Batman films are in order, starting with Tim Burton’s Batman from 1989. The movie’s enjoyable enough . . . but for some reason I don’t … Continue reading

“Fuck Me, Freddy.”

As of last Tuesday, my friend Robyn had never seen the atrocity that is the movie Dreamcatcher. And since my sister and I had been meaning to watch it again for years now—just to see if it was quite as horrible … Continue reading

“Are you alone?” “Isn’t everyone?”

After watching Chinatown, I . . . well, let’s just say I reacted to the film. A lot. I then went to Rotten Tomatoes to see how other people reacted to the movie. I couldn’t believe my damn eyes. As … Continue reading
