Why has Nobody Made a Game of Thrones Open World RPG Yet?

With HBO’s epic medieval fantasy Game of Thrones now in its final season, dedicated fans are already getting worried about the withdrawals they’re going to be dealing with when it comes to an end. This certainly won’t be the last we see of Westeros, as there are numerous spin-offs reportedly in the pipeline. But, just […]

Pet Sematary is one of Stephen King’s most popular horror novels that has been adapted for the movie screen 3 times now. The original 1989 Pet Sematary was most famous for that insane grey cat, the cute little kid getting smashed to smithereens by a semi, and for Fred Gwynne as Jud. It was a […]

Director

Davidd F. Sandberg

Cast

Mark Strong
Djimon Hounsou
Jack Dylan Grazer
Asher Angel

Tag. You’re it! If ever a movie was being given a massive pass for not being the next putrid entry in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), Shazam! is it. Currently, it sits at 93% positive critics ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, which ties it for best in the franchise with Wonder Woman. In no universe, including […]

Synopsis

A kid raises pelicans on the beach. I am not kidding.

Director

Shawn Seet

Cast

Geoffrey Rush
Jai Courtney
Finn Little
Morgana Davies
Trevor Jamieson
Erik Thomson

No, seriously. When I read the title Storm Boy, all I can hear in my head is Phoebe from Friends, saying “Flame Boy” and it makes it really hard to take Storm Boy seriously. And it should be taken seriously. It’s about a boy and his pelican. *giggles* In fact, it’s about a boy and […]

Kevin Costner
Woody Harrelson
Kathy Bates
John Carrol Lynch
Kim Dickens
Emily Brobst
Edward Bossert

Arthur Penn’s 1967 version of Bonnie and Clyde featured the gorgeous, but ruthless killers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. With Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, you had one of the the hottest tandem of sexy couples since Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Bonnie and Clyde was a groundbreaking blockbuster because of its shocking violence […]

Director

James Kent

Cast

Keira Knightley
Alexander Skarsgard
Jason Clarke
Flora Thiemann

Of everything. Prior to screening The Aftermath, I was looking for a quick synopsis of the film because I knew nothing about it.  The first thing that popped up in the Google search was a review for The Aftermath subtitled “The Aftermath is the cinematic equivalent of crying after sex.”  This nearly made me spit-take […]

Lupita Nyong'o
Winston Duke
Elisabeth Moss
Tim Heidecker
Shahadi Wright Joseph
Evan Alex
Madison Curry

My lips are mostly sealed. I often struggle in these reviews with how much to reveal when discussing a movie.  Okay, I sometimes struggle.  On one hand, nobody likes spoilers.  Even for movies that are obvious and preordained crap, people want to be surprised and decide for themselves.  Incidentally, these are the same people who have to touch the […]

Cast

Jennifer Garner
Matthew Broderick
John Oliver
Ken Hudson Campbell
Kenan Thompson
Mila Kunis
Ken Jeong
Brianna Denski
Norbert Leo Butz

Only the best rides make you puke. Based on the previews, I was expecting Wonder Park to be much worse than it ended up being. I am probably cutting it some slack due to my man/nerd crush on John Oliver, but it exceeded my expectations. More importantly, it kept my son’s attention, which is really […]

Director

Jonas Akerlund

Cast

Rory Caulkin as Eurynomos
Emory Cohen as Varg
Jack Kilmer as Pelle 'Dead' Ohlin
Sky Ferreira as the love interest
Valter Skarsgard as 'Faust' Eithun

Fair Value of Lords of Chaos: $18.00. One of the best comedies I’ve seen in a while. A Spinal Tap for my generation, deadpan and wry. Is This Film Worth My Time? You’re either going to laugh, or you’re going to be very disturbed, at the antics of the Scandinavian misanthropes that populate this film. […]

Settle down, all you geeks. With the release of Avengers: Endgame rapidly approaching (just six short (LONG!!) weeks away), movie theaters are preparing for the ultimate nerd-gasm. You might think they are prepared for this after the first Avengers and Avengers: Infinity War (not to mention Star Wars: The Force Awakens), but we nerds have […]
