Counter Clockwise

I will watch literally any movie if you tell me it’s about time travel.  You could even use the phrase “I think there might be a little time travel in it” and I’ll check it out.  My editor here at Filmmonthly knows this and that’s why most of these little indy time travel films that […]

The Disappointments Room

The Disappointments Room

| December 26, 2016

The creators of this film must have been absolutely fearless of bad reviews when the decided to put the word disappointment right in the title.  The bad reviews really write themselves at that point.  On Twitter, after watching the film, I sent out something along the lines of “it turns out the real disappointments room […]

Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story

Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story

| December 26, 2016

If you like westerns, this movie should have everything you’re looking for.  A grizzled hero with a tormented past, a plucky sidekick, gun fights, camping under the stars, horse-riding, blood, and sand.  I always resisted the western genre, but recently have come across many westerns that I thoroughly enjoy.  It turns out that I was […]

Looking: The Complete Series and Movie

Looking: The Complete Series and Movie

| December 9, 2016

Given that Looking only ran for two seasons, I guess I’m not surprised I haven’t heard of it.  Many of HBO’s TV series are cultural phenomenon so it’s rare for them to have a dud that comes and goes without having any impact whatsoever.  This is why I tend to keep an eye out for […]

Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne

| December 2, 2016

I’m not sure why I insist on continuing to watch every Jason Bourne movie that comes along.  Part of me hopes that one of the sequels will eventually manage to recapture the magic of the original Bourne Identity.  I had high hopes for this latest chapter in the life of Jason Bourne (Matt Damon; The […]

Hell on Wheels: Season 5: Part 2

| November 7, 2016

I’ve been fortunate over the past few years to catch some of Hell on Wheels to review for this site and with it coming to an end, and me seeing somewhat where it’s going in the end, I think it may be time to start at the beginning of the series on Netflix and just […]

The Night of The Grizzly

The Night of The Grizzly

| November 1, 2016

Recently, during a horror movie marathon, I watched 1976’s Grizzly, which is a Jaws homage about a massive killer bear terrorizing camping tourists on a mountain.  I really enjoyed the film as a monster movie, with its great moments of blood, gore, and explosions, but wasn’t sure what to expect when popping in The Night […]
