Creed (2015)

Since 2013's Fruitville Station, Ryan Coogler has seen plenty of artistic and financial success, with films like Black Panther and this one. He's had a fruitful partnership with Michael B. Jordan, who plays Adonis Creed, the son of original Rocky nemesis, Apollo Creed. It was released on the fortieth anniversary of the original film and earned Sylvester Stallone… Continue reading Creed (2015)

The Hateful Eight (2015)

Originally conceived it as a novel and sequel to Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight marks both a major change in Tarantino's career -- it's the last he'd make for The Weinstein Company, as he ended his relationship with them following allegations of sexual abuse against Harvey Weinstein -- while yearning back for the days of 70… Continue reading The Hateful Eight (2015)

Seeds of Yesterday (2015)

After four V.C. Andrews movies -- and the original Flowers in the Attic -- nothing should surprise you.

BASTARD PUPS OF JAWS: Avalanche Sharks (2015)

I've been in shark crazed waters for awhile, so sometimes it's good when someone offers you a life preserver. Paul Andolina also likes these movies and even though I can't usually deal with today's overly silly shark films, he still finds the good in them. I'm so glad here's here to tell you all about… Continue reading BASTARD PUPS OF JAWS: Avalanche Sharks (2015)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 22: The Witch

Day 22 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is 22. Separation. Alienation. Aloneness. If you scream alone in the woods and no one is around to hear it, are you really screaming? For today's movie, I went with The Witch, a film where one of the main characters choose all three because of his pride. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQXmlf3Sefg It all… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 22: The Witch
