It Chapter Two Review

It’s not over till It’s over. It Chapter Two, that is. The hotly anticipated sequel to the most successful horror film of all time has finally arrived, and though it didn’t quite match the original’s record-shattering $123 million opening, $91 million is nothing to sneeze at.

47 Meters Down: Uncaged Review

Summer might be close to over, but there’s always time for another killer shark movie. While last year’s major fish flick was Jon Turteltaub’s The Meg, this year’s is the sequel to 47 Meters Down.

I don’t know about you, but I won’t be visiting my local toy store anytime soon. As the third... Continue Reading →

Child’s Play Review

In a stroke of scheduling genius, the new Chucky reboot was released concurrently with Toy Story 4 over this weekend. Both films are about toys coming to life, but offer slightly different results. If you opted for the one that involves a sadistic knife wielding butcher in the form of a creepy doll, then you’d... Continue Reading →

Us Review
