Becky 1

Becky (2020)

Becky is as strong-willed and vindictive as they come and you just tortured and killed her only living parent.   Feel like watching a straightforward “home invasion” film with dangerous-looking thugs (impressive body length, coarse facial features, and imposing tattoos on the back of their bald heads) taking an innocent...

Jumanji : The Next Level (2019)

If you touch my boobs, I will murder you! Too late! That was the first thing I did.   In recent years, the terms “Remake” and “Reboot” have become very popular in Hollywood. Much to my annoyance. In most cases, these knockoffs are just a shadow of the original. Not...

Trauma Center 0

Trauma Center (2019)

What I want is not on you. It’s in you.   It looks a bit like “Die Hard” in a hospital wing. Only the adamant John McClane has been replaced by the brave waitress Madison Taylor (Nicky Whelan) who has to save her own skin (and admittedly, that skin belongs...

Underwater 1

Underwater (2020)

We have about 30 minutes till meltdown. And, uh, it’s gonna blow us into tiny pieces to the surface.   Am I a Kristen Stewart fan? On the contrary. To be honest, I seriously dislike this actress. Not that her acting is so terribly bad. And in a way, she’s...

The Hunt 0

The Hunt (2020)

Why would they do something like that? Same reason elites do anything… ’cause they think they’re better than us.   Can someone please explain why there was so much fuss about the movie “The Hunt“. I understand that the release date has been postponed due to the El Paso, Dayton...

Guns Akimbo 0

Guns Akimbo (2019)

I would have shot you in the dick, if the target wasn’t so small.   “Guns Akimbo” is too absurd for words. It’s absolute nonsense and you shouldn’t take it too seriously. It’s “over the top” pulp and looks as if it’s based on some Asian comic strip. But believe...

Grand Isle 1

Grand Isle (2019)

Go ahead and take her. She’s all yours. But I’ll tell you this. She got a dark side… Darker than hell.   I admire the phenomenon called Nicolas Cage enormously. Every film with him (and nowadays it’s a lot every year) is a mandatory watch for me. I really can’t...

Cold Blood Legacy 0

Cold Blood Legacy (2019)

I had a stand-off with a wolf earlier, and he has tasted human blood… yours.   Jean Reno. The ever-calm actor is usually associated with roles such as a police detective, a gangster or an assassin. The quiet-looking Frenchman has a specific appearance that fits perfectly with such roles. Strange...

Primal 0

Primal (2019)

I just spent ten months in the jungle, and this all smells like cat shit to me.   Films where animals mess with the protagonists’ life. There are a lot of those movies. Only recently you could see in “Crawl” how alligators tried to outwit a father and daughter with...

Lucky Day 0

Lucky Day (2019)

Purpose for coming to the United States, Mr. Chaltiel? Uh… Business… Pleasure… Well, which one is it? A little bit of both. I take pleasure in my business.   These days it’s kind of hype to create reboots or remakes of films from a bygone era. Even though I hate...

Crawl 0

Crawl (2019)

You’re not my coach anymore, dad. That top predator crap doesn’t help. Did you think the last “Lake Placid” episode from the eponymous franchise was downright worthless, stupid and nonsensical (like I did)? Well, let me put your mind at ease. Despite some laughable facts, this reptile-horror “Crawl” isn’t bad...

John Wick Chapter 3 0

Quick review : John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019)

The first part of the “John Wick” saga could be called sparkling fresh and original. I didn’t mind the fact that the brain of a goldfish was sufficient enough to watch and enjoy this film. The screen is being filled up constantly with action-packed footage and Keanu Reeves whirled through...

Hobbs & Shaw 0

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

I’m not working with this guy. I’ve been there, done that. The minute he gets involved, you can kiss goodbye to any finesse because She-Hulk here only knows how to smash. Yeah, Mr. Arson here only knows how to blow shit up. When I was at the cinema with my...

Alita : Battle Angel 2

Alita : Battle Angel (2019)

While I’m learning name, do you have one for me? Alita. It’s a nice name. I love it! I was really looking forward to this movie “Alita: Battle Angel“. A cyber-punk setting and unparalleled computerized images that are perfectly injected into a real-life environment. Of course, you know Alita (Rosa...

Big Legend 0

Big Legend (2018)

I don’t believe in fairy tales. Another film about the legendary Sasquatch, better known as Bigfoot. A few months ago I saw the film “Primal Rage” which I really could appreciate despite the low budget. And that because of the tension and the scarce moments of gore that were incorporated...

Avengement 0

Avengement (2019)

So…prison turned you into a stone-cold killer, did it? Nah, prison didn’t. You and my brother did. I’ve just seen the Philippine revenge film “Maria” in which a beautiful woman beats up everyone she encounters. And before I know it, the next one presents itself already. This time it’s a...

Maria 0

Maria (2019)

Film Review : Maria She’s still alive. Who’s she? Lily. Lily’s still alive! John Wick had a good reason to make things difficult for his former boss. They liquidated his cute dog and stole his car. In the movie “Polar“, Duncan Vizla’s retirement savings were compromised. In this Filipino revenge...

0

Primal Rage: The Legend of Konga (2018)

Film Review : Primal Rage So you’re telling me right here, right now to my face, that you actually believe there’s an Oh-Mah out there? Admittedly, “Primal Rage” certainly won’t win the prize for the most original film. And there are some pain points to be found in this B-film....

0

Escape Room (2019)

Film Review : Escape Room Be the first to escape our most immersive rooms yet and win $10,000. Does coincidence exist? I’m starting to believe it. Coincidentally, I had just seen this movie and a few days later my wife receives a birthday present from her brother. An entrance ticket...

0

Occupation (2018)

Film Review : Occupation I got out of worse situations than this. Been married three times. This must be the stupidest movie ever made about aliens who want to use our planet as a replacement. We already saw it happening in “War of the worlds” and “Independence Day“. But those...

0

Destroyer (2018)

Film Review : Destroyer What’s up? Silas is back. Obviously, the most striking element of this film is the transformation of Nicole Kidman. Her weathered, unkempt appearance with black-rimmed eyes, smudged skin, and a tousled haircut indicate an unhealthy lifestyle and a stubborn addiction. It soon becomes clear that the...

0

The Bouncer (2019)

If something happens to my daughter I’ll kill you. You and your boss. Just when you think that an icon such as Jean-Claude Van Damme is becoming a caricature of himself and in danger of sinking into oblivion, he surprises you with such a part as in this film. The...

2

Overlord (2018)

The German doctor, he believes the tar in the ground has some kind of a power. He calls it his science. But it’s just an excuse to kill us. When I watched the movie “Trench 11” at the end of last year, I already said this might be the cheaper...

0

Superfly (2018)

God is great. God is powerful, yeah. But even more so, God is all-knowing. And that is what makes him scary as shit. Do you understand what I’m saying? This remake of the movie “Super Fly” from the 70s, with Ron O’Neal as Priest, isn’t really my favorite kind of...

0

Lake Placid: Legacy (2018)

You people are out of your minds. The place you wanna go? It’s off-limits. This is really the most miserable film I’ve seen this year. Not only the story was totally stupid and completely absurd. Also, the acting was sometimes extremely bad. I’m sure there are local theater associations who...

0

Adrift (2018)

It’s intense. The infinite horizon. After a few days, I feel reborn. You know, just you, the wind and the sound of the boat cutting through the ocean. When you compare “Adrift” with the movie “All is lost“, where Robert Redford sailed across the ocean on board of a huge...

0

The Meg (2018)

Jonas said something attacked them. Something big enough to destroy a new submarine. I’m happy I’ve watched this movie on the big screen. On the silver screen, the Megalodon (hence the title “The Meg“) was even more impressive. But that’s the only thing that can be said about this film....

0

Upgrade (2018)

You’re the one doing it all. You’re not a robot. In my film review of the movie “The Hollow Child“, I started again with a plea about trailers and I summed up the reasons why I avoid them. I saw the trailer from “Upgrade” by chance at the beginning of...

Pacific Rim : Uprising (2018)

It does not matter who your parents are, where you came from, who believed in you and who didn’t. We are a family now, and we are earth’s last defense. What amazed me the most was the fact that I couldn’t remember much of “Pacific Rim“, even though I thought...

0

Avengers : Infinity War (2018)

Smile. For even in death, you have become Children of Thanos. Me and superheroes. We have a kind of love-hate relationship. One moment I’m really enjoying the character or the story. At that time jealousy bubbles up and I wished I had those specific powers in my daily life. And...

Quick review : The Commuter (2018)

You work hard, you play by the rules, you’re a good soldier, and you don’t deserve it. But the reality is sometimes soldiers end up casualties. Do you want to know what I still remember from “The Commuter“? Well, actually it’s not that much anymore. It’s that kind of movie....

How it ends (2018)

I only have one question for you. Are you coming with me? “How it ends.“. Well, I’ve never seen a movie title that sounded so ambiguous afterward. They should have replaced the period with a question mark. Even though I was very enthusiastic in the beginning. Once again a film...

Tomb Raider (2018)

My opinion on “Tomb Raider” “Vogel can’t find the tomb without me, and since I’m dead and… since you’ve burned the rest of my research, he will never find it.” I was actually looking forward to watching this new version of “Tomb Raider“. Not only because I had a lot...

0

Death Wish (2018)

My opinion on “Death Wish” “We’ll get you set up with your FOID application right here today. State Police send it pretty quick. And then you’ll just have to take a gun safety class, but don’t worry, no one ever fails. You can do that anytime within 30 days of...

0

The Hurricane Heist (2018)

You’re underestimating her. I can smell it. Sometimes a person wonders why nonsense movies like “The Hurricane Heist” are being made. It’s a mixture of “American Heist” with “Into the Storm“. Actually, this disaster film (all aspects of this movie are kind of a disaster by the way) looks like...

Renegades 0

Renegades (2017)

“Can you imagine what that gold could do to help my people? Will you help me get it?” There are films you can compare with a richly filled five-course dinner. First, they spoil you with a tasty opener. After which a well-filled middle piece is offered. And then as an...

Jumanji : Welcome to the jungle 0

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

“I think we got, like, sucked into the game. And we’ve become the avatars that we chose.” I was sure about one thing. A remake of “Jumanji” is the same as repainting the Mona Lisa and exhibiting this copy. Ridiculous, inglorious, and unnecessary. I was afraid this movie would be...

Braven 0

Braven (2018)

You know if you give the other half, we’re as good as dead. I’ve read an article somewhere titled: “10 Reasons why you should watch Braven“. I agreed with a few points. You could say the movie is a retrospective of action films from the 90s. But there are reasons...

Marauders 0

Marauders (2016)

I don’t care if you smoked last week.What I care about is honesty. If you lie, you withhold facts to get ahead, I’ll cut off your balls and bury you. If you’re going to ask me what “Marauders” was about, I’ll owe you the answer. Because to be honest, this...

2

Acts of Violence (2018)

“Mia, you shouldn’t have done that! You have no idea who they are!” “Acts of violence” is nothing more than a retarded, boring and totally implausible crime film in which serious topics such as PTSD and odious human trafficking are used as fait divers. In addition to the brainless content,...
