Is The Emoji Movie the Worst Animated Movie Ever?
When I first heard they were making a movie about emojis, my first thought was, Wow, that is the laziest idea I've ever heard. I guess some guys in Hollywood looked at his phone and said, I can make a...

Green Room (2014)
Estimated Budget - $5M Domestic Gross - $3M Captain Picard and Mr. Chekov could not save this film, but I don’t think it needed saving. I don’t know if it was the advertising campaign, premise, or the...

Why Game of Thrones Sucks Now
About halfway through the fifth season of Game of Thrones, we were given a glimpse into to what the show would become. We were introduced to the Dornish plot line and the consequent downfall in the wr...

The Bronze (2015)
Them Duplass boys are at it again (best if read in Waylon Jennings voice). Another film that lost money for no reason. It was a low-brow(ish) comedy that never pretended to be anything it wasn’t. Meli...

Twin Peaks 2017: The Secret Life of Diane Evans
In Part 4 of Twin Peaks: The Return we were left with one of the series most tantalising cliffhangers yet - just who was the mystery woman that Albert & Gordon referred to, whose insight they'd seek i...

Movie Review: Stakeout Turns 30
Stakeout exists in a bizarre space in our popular memory. The action-comedy starring Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez opened the first weekend of August, 1987 at the top of the box office. The film went on to rank in the top 10 highest grossing films of the year and earned mostly positive reviews from critics. Then, it simply faded from memory. Sure, 6 years after the release of Stakeout they got around to making a bad sequel, shoulder shruggingly titled Another Stakeout, that did the origina...

Atomic Blonde Review
The Cold War spy thriller. Perpetual snow (it's never summer in the Soviet bloc), coats, double agents, bad hair, Germans, retro tech, shifting loyalties and no shortage of scenes at checkpoints givin...

Movie Review: The Dark Tower
To whomever said that Stephen King’s epic novel The Dark Tower was un-adaptable to the big screen, we owe you a Coke. The supremely silly movie sequel to King’s dense Dark Tower book series is an emba...

It Comes At Night
It Comes At Night is bleak. Unremittingly so. This is, for all intents and purposes, a waking nightmare designed to make us squirm and question the moral quandary at the centre of this grouped two-han...

Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Review
It’s time to review the easily most polarizing movie in the Transformers saga. Revenge of the Fallen came out in 2009. I remember being very hype to see it, and it didn’t let me down. In fact, to let ...
