Annabelle: Creation

Annabelle: Creation entertains rising star Lulu Wilson who was a breakout in last year’s Ouija: Origin of Evil. The Annabelle films and Ouija films have more in common than just being current horror films. Even worse than the first Annabelle (29% on RT), Ouija was a colossal disaster (7% on RT). Universal and Blumhouse then […]

War for the Planet of the Apes – Review

On IMDb, the film’s genres are listed as “action”, “adventure”, and “drama”. The marketing and subsequent first two films implored that this would ring true; before anyone makes the same mistake as me, I’m here to tell you that this film is exclusively a drama with a few action sequences throughout. This film is incredible, […]

Okja – Review

In 2013 Snowpiercer was robbed of the wide release it deserved. A unique and passionate genre film, Korean director Joon-Ho Bong proved that he could strongly helm a film, and a fantastic one at that. Many were intrigued by his next film, though were skeptical about a Netflix distribution. The platform allows for more leniency […]
