Predator Gets a Prequel in Prey

I loved the original Predator film. While the sequels of the monster movie franchise did not really work for me, the original was the kind of action/horror film that I absolutely loved. You have this alien killing machine, complete with… Continue Reading →

Lightning Strikes Twice for Taika in Thor: Love and Thunder

Per Matt Originally dark and dreary, the Thor franchise was not exactly well received in Marvel’s Phase One by critics and fans alike (although I’m probably one of the few who didn’t mind the plot devices). When Taika Waititi was… Continue Reading →

Behold the Terrors of The Brain from Planet Arous!

Per Matt In 1957, a black-and-white cinematic cult classic was released featuring a giant, floating, megalomaniacal, sex-crazed brain from outer space. Audiences may not have crowned the indie film a blockbuster back in the day, but 65 years later, The… Continue Reading →

Moonfall Truly is a Disaster Film

Roland Emmerich’s new sci-fi film, Moonfall, may have a pretty big cast full of A-list names, but that only will take a film so far. Kinda surprising to me, as I looked over this cast list long before checking this… Continue Reading →

Animated Summit of the Gods Translates Into a Peak Adventure
