Awful

How I Became A Superhero – Review

If you expect to find out how anybody became a superhero, don’t bother. The misleading title aside, which is the same as the novel, written by Gérald Bronner, this movie has nothing interesting to offer. The characters are bland, the super powers are boring and the special effects are so-so at best. You could overlook all that and just go for the action but then again you would only watch th...[Read More]

The Tomorrow War – Review

Amazon Studios brings us a sci-fi action thriller about the end of the world that has alien bugs, machine guns and time travel. Sounds good? You are thinking Starship Troopers and you are not wrong, albeit The Tomorrow War is an empty husk of a bug compared to Paul Verhoeven’s sci-fi classic. In fact, you are better off (re-)watching Starship Troopers than this, then again, if you manage to switch...[Read More]

Wish Dragon – Review

I get it, each generation their own Star Wars, or in this case Aladdin. We all knowsa howsa that wentsa… For those unfamiliar with the above pun, Wish Dragon is essentially Aladdin set in modern day China, a cheap and lazy knock-off of Disney’s animated “Aladdin” (not the live action one) one might say. Sure, for those who never heard of the 1001 Arabian Nights stories and ...[Read More]

Indiana Jones Steelbook Boxset Issues

We are seeing reports around the web of some people getting duplicates of one movie in the Indiana Jones 4K UHD Blu-ray boxset. Steelbook collectors seems to be getting two copies of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, which you can see in the photo below, posted by a member of a private 4K group. From delays in replication to duplicate movies, it seems that Paramount just can’t catch a br...[Read More]

Director of The Flash Shares Batman Suit Photo

Director of the The Flash, Andy Muschietti, shared a photo of Keaton’s Batman suit on his Instagram. The suit has a few droplets of blood on it, or strawberry sauce. Whose blood, ketchup or marmalade is it? Or is it jam… in any case, we really don’t know, whose “blood” it is! The suspense! Of course, Muschietti didn’t post anything along with the image. Just the...[Read More]

Little Fish – Review

When I first heard the title “Little Fish” I thought “little” of it. Nomen est Omen as the saying goes. I then watched it, expecting a sad love story, which is essentially what this movie is. It’s a very sad Little Fish. I liked it, though. However, in a time of a real pandemic, watching a sad movie about a fictional pandemic that causes memory loss and ultimately los...[Read More]

Bad

The Woman in the Window Review

The Woman in the Window is currently yet another Top Ten entry on Netflix that pops up every time you switch on your TV. I finally sat down and took the time to watch it, not having read anything but the short description followed by the statement that this movie is suspenseful, as in full of suspense. And there is the rub. It just isn’t all that suspenseful. Sure you may wonder what happene...[Read More]

Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse Review

Some would argue that if you had seen one Tom Clancy movie or read one of the books you had seen and read them all. This sums it up in essence and this is how you should approach watching this movie. Temper your expectations. We are actually off to a quite decent start, following John on his mission to extract a CIA asset from hostile grounds. The mission goes sideways in a way due to incomplete b...[Read More]

The Mitchells vs the Machines – Review

What a silly movie! Let me just say this movie is best viewed with your kids/family. It’s funny, it’s silly and at times adorable. The use of silly YouTube clips and the comic style action bubbles paired with the kind of weird animation style works. “The noses are funny, in a good way”, said my son and he liked the pig, I mean pug, of course. Who wouldn’t. So what is ...[Read More]
