Movie Review: Annabelle

Annabelle is a spin off/prequel to the Conjuring. If you have not seen the Conjuring, the plot follows a married couple who have a deep scientific interest in the paranormal. It is, of course, based on real events. It was a James Wan film, and a spiritual follow up to Insidious. The film was pretty popular and so was the doll Annabelle. [...]

Review: Kick Ass 2

I enjoyed the first film a lot and was very excited when they announced the sequel. Until some of the details were released. It was said that the film would be more about Hit Girl than Kick Ass. Rumors seemed to turn factual after seeing some of the reviews pop up indicating that the first 30 minutes of the film seemed solely to focus on [...]

Review: A Haunted House 2

I am going to start things off by saying that I am typically a huge fan of the Wayans Brothers/family. Starting with Kennan and Damon then making our way through Shawn and Marlon, and their supporting cast such as Kim down to the new generation. Damon Wayans JR is one of the best actors in comedies right now. I really enjoy most of their [...]

Review: 22 Jump Street

The summer season was a dud all around this year. With uncharacteristically cool and rainy weather the season just kind of didn’t appear, and neither did many audiences appear in the theaters. With only one film, the Guardians of the Galaxy, making it to the 300 million dollar mark. This is the first time in about a decade that [...]

Review: The Worlds End

This is the second of five films that fellow contributor Jeremy Shaw challenged me to watch and review. I have chosen not to watch The Worlds End because I have grown tired of the formula. Ten years ago I loved Shaun of the Dead, and two years later I loved Hot Fuzz. Then I moved on. A few years went by and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost [...]

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

(Click to see .gif of the James Bond title card. Makes me that happy that I can type that)   Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives is completely ridiculous, much more so than the five movies that preceded it, and is better off for it. The movie starts with Jason Voorhees being brought back to life like Frankenstein’s monster after a [...]

Book vs The Movie: The Town

  I began this feature with Jaws. Ultimately I liked the book a lot, but I loved the film. Spielbergs classic took the win. This time we look at The Town. Adapted for screen by Ben Affleck and starring the man himself alongside Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively and Jon Hamm. I have always been a fan of Ben Affleck. There was a running gag [...]

Review: The Expendables 3

It’s been a few years now since the release of the first Expendables film and I feel that I must preface this review of the thrid installment with my thoughts on the first. In theory The Expendables is the coolest action movie that ever existed. On paper the idea of collecting the best action stars of the 80’s and 90’s [...]

Andrews TMNT review

When you take a look at me it is quite apparent that I am a huge fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I love the TMNT so much so that I have dedicated my flesh to it with large sleeve tattoo. It takes a special kind of fan to give their body in such a way. I wear it proudly. I would be lying if I said that it was the most influential [...]
