Silent Night : Movie Review

In my review of No One Will Save You, I said, “A near-silent movie just doesn’t happen these days.” Who knew that 2023 would bring TWO near-silent releases, with one of them being action grandmaster John Woo’s return to American cinemas after a 20-year absence? Silent Night is a bit of a departure from Woo’s well-known “heroic bloodshed” […]

Prey (2022) – Movie Review

In the last 12 years, we’ve had three Predator films after a duo of why’d-they-bother, cash-grabbing Alien vs. Predator crossover movies. 2010’s Predators was the last good film in the franchise, with 2018’s The Predator being an overhyped disappointment. We’re back into the realm of the surprise and wonder that Predator and Predators gave us, thanks […]

White House Down

Roland Emmerich does well with spectacle movies. Who can forget the indelible image of the White House being eviscerated by alien laser fire in Independence Day? Nor can one dismiss the awesome power of the tidal wave hitting New York City in The Day After Tomorrow. With his latest film, White House Down, Emmerich goes […]

World War Z

“With the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark—that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.” — Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Okay, so maybe we’re not talking about the ‘60s and the madness of the era. However, when I think of the new […]
