3.5/5 Potato Dreams of America (2021) Emilie Black Potatoe Dreams of America is an interesting coming-of-age film with a very specific vibe to it and a feeling of having two completely distinct stories at play. EDIT

4.5/5 Slapface (2021) Emilie Black ...it has effective scares, but once the credits roll, these are not what will stay with the viewer. The performances, images, and emotions will be there long after the film ends. EDIT

Posted Aug 28, 2021
3.5/5 Indemnity (2021) Emilie Black The film feels a bit familiar overall, but once over that, it becomes an easy watch for an action film and it also brings up a few interesting points. EDIT
Posted Aug 28, 2021

Posted Jul 29, 2021

Posted Jul 25, 2021
3.5/5 Great White (2021) Emilie Black ...it doesn't reinvent the shark film, but it's a good entry in a genre that seems to get a new one (or five) each summer. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2021

Posted Jul 20, 2021
Space Jam: A New Legacy (2021) Felix Vasquez Jr. Feels like it was directed not by a person, but a committee of people that followed algorithms about what was appealing to modern audiences... EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2021
3/5 River (2021) Emilie Black The performance by lead Mary Cameron Rodgers is on point though and she really takes this film from something that could have been forgettable to something that is worth watching. EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2021
4.5.5 Vicious Fun (2020) Emilie Black Vicious Fun is a greatly fun killer film with a twist that works perfectly. The performances work (like seriously, Robert Maillet in that part is just perfect) and the cast is on point throughout. EDIT

Posted Jul 13, 2021

Posted Jul 11, 2021

Posted Jul 3, 2021
F9 The Fast Saga (2021) Felix Vasquez Jr. The only thing worse than a bad action movie is a boring one... EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2021

Posted Jun 22, 2021
3/5 Ultrasound (2021) Emilie Black Ultrasound is a film with plenty good ideas and two great lead performances, but something feels off or like it's missing... EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2021
3.5/5 Agnes (2021) Emilie Black ...the first part of the film is much more interesting than the second part, but the performances do bring it all together in the end. EDIT
Posted Jun 16, 2021
4/5 FEAR (2021) Emilie Black In a way, it may simply be how it connects with the viewer that sets it apart. There is a quality in how the film is written, how the characters are created, and how everything is directed that sets it above the rest of the subgenres it belongs in. EDIT
Posted Jun 16, 2021
Aliens, Clowns & Geeks (2019) Felix Vasquez Jr. It's a fearless, and bizarre mish mash of comedy, satire, science fiction, music, and just about everything else you can find. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2021

Posted Jun 12, 2021

Posted Jun 6, 2021
3/5 Baphomet (2021) Emilie Black It a decent film with a pretty good soundtrack, it almost feels like a 90s horror film at times and the blu release definitely feels that way. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2021
2/5 The Carnivores (2020) Emilie Black The Carnivores is a complete let down of a film. It has the possibility of being a genius piece of independent filmmaking with a strong commentary, but it that is what it was going for, it missed the mark completely. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2021
Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1966) Felix Vasquez Jr. A mystery, exploitation film, and hot rod thriller all rolled into one busty package. EDIT
Posted May 28, 2021
2.5/5 Enfant Terrible (2020) Emilie Black There is a lot of good in here, but the end result is just not a film that is a watch most will enjoy or want to stay with until the end. EDIT
Posted May 26, 2021
Army Of The Dead (2021) Felix Vasquez Jr. A lousy film from top to bottom... EDIT
Posted May 25, 2021

Posted May 21, 2021
The Woman in the Window (2021) Felix Vasquez Jr. A sloppy, droning, and genre confused mess... EDIT
Posted May 21, 2021
4/5 The Retreat (2021) Emilie Black The Retreat is an effective horror film with a very timely issue at its center. It uses its characters to best possible effect and the performances help this greatly. EDIT
Posted May 19, 2021
4.5/5 Sound of Violence (2021) Emilie Black Sound of Violence is a must-see film, a film that has a ton to offer and works its ideas just the right way, giving the viewer a story that keeps the interest and developments that lead perfectly to the gruesome ending. EDIT
Posted May 19, 2021
4.5/5 The Djinn (2021) Emilie Black The Djinn is a film that builds dread and fear by layering a good story, good directing, strong acting, atmosphere with great images and sound, and keeping these almost minimalist to a great effect. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2021
3/5 High Ground (2020) Emilie Black The performances are top notch and the cinematography is stunning, but it's not quite enough to fully save the film. EDIT
Posted May 12, 2021
2.5/5 Central Park (2017) Emilie Black The film feels a bit bland with an uninterested cast which leads the viewer to loose interest more than once as the proceedings go on. EDIT
