Snowpiercer

I’m kind of surprised this didn’t get a wider release.

Especially with the whole Captain America in Bioshock thing going on.

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with “art films,” meaning the ones that are usually more independent and tend to be experimental with filmmaking, either visually or with storytelling. There are plenty of those films that I enjoy, such as PiEraserhead, Herand Old…

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Well, this movie was very….quirky.

It’s definitely a Wes Anderson movie.

My relationship with Wes Anderson is tad sketchy. I have heard great things about his work, and while I can see he is a talented filmmaker, I have never really gotten into his work. Prior to this movie, the only other film of his I’ve seen from start to finish was The Royal Tenenbaums, which I remember enjoying, especially…

The Strain Episode 1

The Strain Episode 1

Oh hey, I’m back to reviewing TV episodes again. How about that.

So, where better to begin than with the highly anticipated Guillermo del Toro FX series adapted from his novel series of the same name, The Straintakes a look at vampires from the aspect of a disease outbreak through the eyes of a doctor at the CDC and a Holocaust survivor with knowledge of the cause of the virus. Having never read…

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Well, this series just took a turn for the morbid.

Must be going through filmmaking puberty.

After 2011′s nice adrenaline shot in the form of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, this 46 year old series was regaining its steam, thanks especially to Andy Serkis for doing the motion capture and voice work of Caesar. Plus, with both writers of the reboot returning, they’ve managed to not only maintain…

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Whoa. A Michael Bay Transformers movie I actually enjoyed. Who’d a thunk?

Yeah, it didn’t take me long to go from being a fan of that first movie to utterly despising this whole series. From Shia’s performance hovering between grating and boring, the indistinguishable Transformers characters and the rampant racism and misogyny in a movie based on a children’s toy line, I jumped off this wagon…
