You Can’t Run Forever : Movie Review

You Can’t Run Forever is an exercise in frustration cinema. It’s one of those movies that makes you scream obvious solutions at the screen that the movie itself presents and refuses to use in order to pad out the running time. The script, co-written by Carolyn Carpenter and director Michelle Schumacher, takes a thin premise […]

Damaged : Movie Review

The trouble with David Fincher’s seminal 1995 horror thriller Se7en is that it spawned all the knockoffs. Its “serial killer taunts detectives” trope isn’t a new thing by any stretch of the imagination (reminder: Se7en was only four years separated from another linchpin detective procedural, The Silence of the Lambs), but in the words of […]

I.S.S. : Movie Review

What an irresistible, damning blast of a conceit I.S.S. executes in thrilling fashion.

M3GAN (2023) – Movie Review

A story about a life-size AI doll charged with protecting an orphaned child from anything, including other kids? And it also danced? There was nothing that social media didn’t love about it, turning shot sequences from the trailer […]

Fall (2022) – Movie Review

All you acrophobics in the audience right now who can’t even stand talking about heights need to turn away now. I appreciate you clicking on the link, but I do not wish to cause any discomfort. This opening paragraph is all you’ll get as far as a grace period. So here we go in 5… […]

Firestarter (2022) – Movie Review

Let me get this out of the way: I have no attachments to the previous incarnations of Firestarter – neither Stephen King’s 1980 novel nor the 1984 filmed adaptation – in particular. The book was one of the first of his that I ever read, but I barely remember anything from it; I didn’t see […]
