Watch the Prologue to Alien: Covenant

Who lives? Who dies? That is the burning question we should all be asking about Ridley Scott’s upcoming pre-sequel to Alien/Prometheus due May 19th, 2017. Enjoy the official prologue to Alien: Covenant which introduces the ill-fated crew as they gather for a final meal before entering cryosleep. Hilarity ensues.

13th

“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” This is the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution which abolishes slavery, or so we thought. That “punishment for a crime” clause … Continued

De Palma

Brian De Palma is a fantastic filmmaker, one of my favorites in fact. I always thought he was closer to Alfred Hitchcock than any of his filmmaking contemporaries like Spielberg, Scorsese, or Coppola. His films are too beautifully made to be considered B-movies, and too schlocky and fun to be completely mired in pretention. Directed … Continued

Haunters

Jon Schnitzer is one hell of documentarian and he has struck gold with Haunters. You will not be able to look away. This doc will get your heart racing and scare the hell out of you and that’s just from watching other people go through haunt experiences. He’s combined his passion for Halloween and his … Continued

Logan (non-spoiler review)

I’m going to go out on a limb here and make a prediction that Logan is going to draw a lot of comparisons to The Dark Knight; I even made this comparison during Episode 003 of the Film Threat Podcast, and I feel like as time goes on more and more people will agree. It’s … Continued

The Great Wall

Perhaps The Great Wall might have been a better movie if it had one of China’s smaller architectural marvels as a backdrop. If director Zhang Yimou had make a film about just the Great Wall itself and had not bothered with lifeless characters and unconvincing special effects, the results would have been superior. That last … Continued

Fare

Fare could be described, if written by a more satirical writer than I, as something like Scenes From a Marriage meets You’re Next. Or, perhaps more accurately, as a literal Affair to Remember. It’s a horror of sorts, scary with anxiety and too wide awake righteousness. To fully elaborate on this summation would be to … Continued

The Lego Batman Movie

“Does Batman live in Bruce Wayne’s basement?” “No! Bruce Wayne lives in Batman’s attic.” While I may be a big fan of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy AND semi fascinated by Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I can’t really say that there’s been a film that adapts Batman in a way I … Continued
