The Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline

| June 26, 2015 | 0 Comments

I was listening to the new episode of The Marvel Cinematic Universe Podcast yesterday and the topic of the MCU chronology came up.  It’s interesting to examine as Marvel so far has consistently maintained ambiguity concerning when certain chapters of their universe take place in relation to others.  Below is the order as I see […]

I’ve been watching a lot of interesting new releases from Olive Films lately, and you can find my reviews for things like Zombies From Outer Space, and How to Murder Your Wife on this site.  Next week, Olive is releasing a new group of movies on blu-ray that might’ve never otherwise found the light of […]

Me Without You

Me Without You

The first thing that occurred to me when I started watching Me Without You was that Michelle Williams (My Week With Marilyn) is still looking really young, passing no problem for a high school student in the beginning of the film.  Turns out this movie was made in 2001, so that makes sense, but I […]

Eccentric millionaire Mr. Madec (Michael Douglas; Ant-Man) has been hunting all his life and has collected a number of impressive trophies, from elephant tusks to rhino horns.  Even for a man with his enormous resources, it has been impossible for him to get a license to hunt his latest trophy, which I gather is some […]

I tend to not like movies about the military, which isn’t to say I don’t like war movies.  War movies have a lot of action and conflict and things constantly going on, and that tends to make them pretty interesting to watch as well as visually engrossing.  Movies about the military however can be quite […]

Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) is back with a new espionage comedy about an overweight support agent at the CIA (Melissa McCarthy; Bridesmaids, The Heat) forced into the field when the identities of all the top secret agents are compromised by a terrorist organization led by Rayna Boynaov (Rose Byrne; Bridesmaids).  What follows is a […]

Sometimes I wonder why I volunteer to review so many horror movies.  I very rarely stumble upon a good one.  Every great horror movie I’ve ever seen is shown to me by a friend who vouches for it.  I do like the versatility of the horror genre.  There may not be many movies that are […]

Zombies From Outer Space

Zombies From Outer Space

| May 26, 2015 | 0 Comments

First off, this movie is a lot weirder than the title implies.  Done in the style of a 1950’s horror movie, Zomies from Outer Space is about a race of dome-headed aliens who come to Earth and start turning humans into zombies as part of their plan to conquer the planet.  Presumably, once the humans […]

A group of teenagers are hunted by a demonic presence out in the woods.  No, I didn’t accidentally watch The Blair Witch Project – just another in a long line of copies.  Remember like 20 years ago when Fox aired those “Masked Magician” specials in which a professional magician showed you a bunch of common […]

I’m not sure why every director feels the need to do a conventional teenage drama at some point in their career, but this is Uwe Boll’s (In The Name of The King) attempt.  Honestly, it’s better than a lot of similar movies I’ve seen, but I remain incapable of relating to these characters because I […]
