Re: 2016 in review

Nicely done, Remo! How for my recap. I have to say that I only took in 9 theatrical viewings in 2016, but I caught up to 9 more on video bringing the total to an even 18 (plus an honorable mention as noted below). So here are my thought on 2016 as follows: Theatrical viewings: DEADPOOL - Although I ...

Re: 2015 in review

Nice wrap-up Remo (as usual)! For me, 2015 was a somewhat disappointing year in terms of movies. I haven't really commented on much of the discussion since I didn't see many movies this year and didn't have much to say about the ones I did see. I honestly don't make it out to the cinema anymore as t...

Re: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

I've been serious lagging on my movie discussions during the past year (I'm hoping to correct that in 2016). I did see this on opening day and then went back last weekend to see it a second time in IMAX 3-D. This movie has already been out for three weeks and has shattered box-office records everywh...

Re: Kingsman: The Secret Service

Went to see this last night and was glad that I did. I wound up enjoying this much more than FIFTY SHADES OF GREY (which really fell short for me, but that's another review). There was a lot of fun stuff in KINGSMAN and like Remo I can't really say much about the movie either without giving away any...

Great recap Remo (as always). I always look forward to these yearly wrap-ups as it gives me a chance to touch on movies I didn't talk about during the year. I really didn't get out to see much during 2014 as there wasn't a whole lot that interested me. What films I did go to see I really didn't have...

Re: Dracula Untold

Thanks for the review Remo. Because of my Roku and the instant streaming convenience of Netflix and Vudu I'm seeing a lot more movies at home these days and am very selective of what I see at the cinema. I really had no interest in DRACULA UNTOLD (or I, FRANKENSTEIN) to begin with. Reading your revi...

I've been serious slacking in discussion of cinematic releases lately, but truth be told I didn't have much to say about what I did see theatrically this year that has already been said (I'll save my comments for the year-end recap in a few months). However I did venture out to see GONE GIRL and fig...

Argento's DRACULA

So has anyone else seen this yet? I can't honestly say that I'm a huge fan of Argento as I am more in the Fulci and Franco camps. Although I really enjoyed SUSPIRIA, OPERA and PHENOMENA, I avoided a lot of his cinematic output during recent years due to hearing bad things about them from just about ...

Re: 2013 in review

Now for my recap. 2013 was a pretty solid year for movies even if it was lacking in genre films. Ever since I got my Roku over a year ago, I've enjoyed streaming movies off of Netflix and Vudu. Because of that I've been more selective with what I saw in theatres. The good news is that I liked almost...

I have to admit that I actually enjoyed this movie. It had been a long time since I'd seen the original, but I rewatched it on Netflix after seeing the new movie. I can't really say this remake is any better or worse than the original, but if I had to choose between the two I'd lean a little more to...

I was actually planning to see one this weekend but now I can't decide which one to see first. I haven't been to see much theatrically this summer so I have a lot of catch...

I finally saw JOHN DIES AT THE END last night on Netflix and actually liked it quite a bit. Yes it was a bit silly at times but that only enhanced my enjoyment of it even if it wasn't anything special. The cameo by Angus Scrimm was definitely my favorite part of the movie. Seeing as it is easily ava...

A great cast with awesome performances and a terrific story to boot. Benedict Cumberbatch was a cool villain and it was great to see Peter Weller in...

Although it did provide some entertaining moments, the film was full of missed opportunities and I wonder how the ...
