Well… it’s January, folks. That means it’s time to struggle through a slew of mediocre movies until the exciting ones show up, and director William Eubank’s “Underwater” is here to get things started.
While it doesn’t channel the same horrors as its predecessor once did, “Doctor Sleep” provides an intriguing exploration of the lore and mythology at the heart of the series.
After 10 years of waiting, the highly anticipated Zombieland sequel finally arrived, and it’s certainly worth the wait. “Double Tap” is a smart, entertaining adventure that perfectly realigns itself with the world fans have dreamed of returning to for years.
“Joker” is an unsettling and extremely heavy film, and at times it verges on being unenjoyable, but there are still enough elements to impress – mainly in Phoenix’s broken performance.
There’s plenty to like about “It Chapter Two,” but ultimately it’s unable to capture the same aura that made its predecessor so enthralling.
While it won’t go down as one of 2019’s best, “Ready or Not” it will certainly be remembered as the surprise of the summer – and just might become a cult classic.
“Midsommar” is a sophomore accomplishment worth celebrating, even if its glacial pacing and indulgence may alienate viewers.
“Pet Sematary” is a middle of the road horror adaptation with a handful of solid scares and unnerving performances, that ultimately struggles to overcome issues with pacing and an abundance of exposition.
After bursting onto the scene in 2017 with Get Out, director Jordan Peele is back for more with his sophomore feature, Us. While his directorial debut was certainly a thriller filled with plenty of scares, the film’s focus was its brilliant social commentary; but this time around, it’s all about the terror.
After premiering to some mediocre feedback in early September 2018 at Toronto International Film Festival, “Greta,” and its stale reviews, had a while to marinate before its March 2019 release date. But, I’m here to set the record straight. THEY WERE WRONG. “Greta” is absolutely wild, in all the best ways.
While “Escape Room” starts out with a strong action sequence and some promising momentum, it quickly comes to a halt, thanks to the film’s biggest flaw: its unlikable characters.
“Hereditary” does to its audience exactly what its villains do to their victims – weaken you until you’re at your most vulnerable, and then attack when you’re unable to defend yourself.
