Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) is a surprise mash-up horror/romance/drama with comic undertones. It was based on the novel of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith, (who also wrote the fun Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). He managed to mashes up two very unlikely sources, coming up with something remarkably coherent. While A.L.V.H. was fun […]

Harpoon: Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre (2009)

Director

Julius Kemp

Cast

Pihla Vitala
Nae
Terrence Anderson
Miranda Hennessy
Gunnar Hansen
Stefan Jonsson

This Icelandic film was a much better movie than the title suggested. In fact, the title was a lurid and stupid one. The original title was closer to the truth as it was promoted in Iceland as “Tryllir“, meaning something between Thriller and Horror. More a Thriller than a straight up slasher film, Harpoon was […]

Is You’re Next (2011) a good film? Yes! It is very well made. Should anyone see this film? If you are into cut above average horror, yes! Did you, Jaimes Palacio, personally enjoy it? [crickets] Well, did you ? (I’m thinking… I’m thinking…) Here is the thing. I don’t get scared film wise. I get […]

Honor Blackman
Dudley Sutton

Bumbling bank robbers get more than they bargained for when the heist go awry. While escaping with hostages, they discover that London has been over taken by zombies. This is a wonderfully cheeky concept that works well in this movie. This film has stylistic flashbacks and jump cuts reminiscent of LOCK, STOCK & TWO SMOKING […]

Stig Frode Henriksen
Hallvard Holeman

Obviously this is a sequel to DEAD SNOW, a movie about Nazi Zombies coming to life (or un-death) and killing a group of friends. DS2 brings everyone up to speed in the 5 minute prologue and we learn that DS’s hero accidentally killed his girlfriend with an ax; had to chop of his arm because, […]

THE DARK TOWER: Sorry Stephen King, you are just wrong.

Film Title

The Dark Tower

Synopsis

This is The Dark Tower for Dummies

Director

Nikolaj Arcel

Cast

Jake Chambers-Tom Taylor
Roland Deschain-Idris Elba
Man In Black-Matthew McConaughey
Laurie Chambers-Katheryn Winnick
Dennis Haysbert-Steven Deschain

In regards to THE DARK TOWER, I think that Stephen King is becoming more deluded and less picky as he grows older. The author, who hated the film adaptation of THE SHINING, (he had some good points) has, incredibly, given the recent dim and dismal adaptation his blessing. This, from a man who called THE […]

Synopsis

Anyone who has to sit through this mess of a movie is having a bad day

Director

Miguel Arteta

Cast

Steve Carell
Jennifer Garner
Ed Oxenbould
Dylan Minnette
Keris Dorsey
Bella Thorne

ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY (2014): It’s hard to figure out what demographic the film makers were aiming for. With a script that includes penis jokes, stripper jokes, poop jokes, and sex jokes, it is hardly appropriate for children. On the other hand, it is simply too brain dead for […]

Director

James Wan

Cast

Vin Diesel
Jason Statham
Paul Walker
Michelle Rodriguez
Jordana Brewster
Dwayne Johnson
Tyrese Gibson


EDITORS NOTE: The Fast and the Furious, is it out of control? The Fast and the Furious started harmlessly enough, but has now grown into quite a franchise, for better or worse. This franchise has been mostly ignored by Ruthless, maybe because of the worse, or maybe because we are just lazy. We do have […]
