Insidious (2011)

Even the most casual film buff would immediately begin seeing similarities to the 80’s classic Poltergeist throughout Insidious. Their plots drift so dangerously close that passing the similarities off as mere homage is drawing a pretty long bow. If this was the only film Insidious resembled though, I may have been able to ignore it…

The Loved Ones (2010)

Hey, this is an Aussie horror film…and I am an Aussie who loves good horror. Only, good horror is so rarely Aussie, so I suppose I get a little excited when a film comes along that is not only good, but is Aussie…and not only horror, but Aussie horror. Have I lost anyone?…

Catfish (2010)

The marketing idiot who decided to blatantly try to trick moviegoers into believing Catfish is a suspense thriller (when it clearly is not), has done more damage to the film that it deserves. The first rule of film marketing for our current savvy generation of movie-goers should be simple; “Don’t mislead the paying customer”…

When You’re Strange (2010)

Doors fans will get a kick out of some juicy, never-before-seen footage of Morrison, as well as some nice information about the band in the studio. What we really needed was something a tad more substantial; Some talking heads discussing their memories of the time and their relationship with Jim and the band would have been priceless…

Inception (2010)

The very idea that a big budget studio film can treat us as intelligent human beings capable of processing complex ideas, has understandably put many people in a state of drunken shock, leaving them with no other choice than to momentarily lose their inhibitions, strip naked and run through the streets singing the films praises like possessed madmen…

Kick-Ass (2010)

I don’t know about you, but there is no better way to assure my ass will be first in line buying a ticket than to describe a movie as “Morally Reprehensible”. Overused film-critic phrases like, “The Must-see film of the year”, “Oscar worthy performances” or “A real crowd-pleaser” don’t seem to get bums on seats anymore. “Winner of 14 Academy Awards, including Best Picture!”…meh..so what? Is that the best you can do? What else have you got for me? “This film is morally reprehensible!” Whoa, this I gotta see. You can count me in. “Suzie, hold all my calls”…

The Book Of Eli (2010)

I’m not immune to ridiculous twist endings, but The Book of Eli has a twist so preposterous, even avid fans of twist endings will scratch their eyeballs out in protest. A twist so outlandishly stupid, that even M. Night Shyamalan, the current champion of lame twist endings would shoot himself in the head just so he could later turn over in his grave…

Survival of the Dead (2009)

This is difficult. Nobody wants to lay the boot into one of their heroes. Who the hell am I to sit here and throw lazy insults towards George A Romero, a man I have admired most of my life? A father figure of sorts who has taught me so much…
