At First Glance: "Captain America: Civil War”

Occasionally there are sequels worth getting excited about. It’s simply the way the previous film was handled that makes one want to get all kinds of exccited for it. 1,025 more words


“Old-School Pseudo-European Gangster-Style Slumber Party”

James Roday’s Halloween-themed comedy-horror flick Gravy (2015) epitomises the motto “Too Ugly To Live – Too Weird To Die”… and I mean that in the nicest possible way. 296 more words

Film Reviews

Recently: “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I”

As a film series continues the feeling of being tired from the same thing can sometimes pop up. The reason or reasons, may be varied, but with a long running franchise, it’s almost unavoidable. 1,574 more words


Steven (He Who is Critical of TV & Film) reblogged this on Past, Present, Future in TV and Film and commented:

IMG_0047The rewatch. Always an interesting experience, especially before the final film in the series. If you’re lucky, you’ll still really enjoy the film and be excited for the next one. If not, well, then, there’s no helping you. The Lionsgate film “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1”, is still the perfect bridge between the second and final films in a franchise. I wrote about this film last year, after seeing it in theaters, and wasn’t sure how to approach it for this rewatch session, in preparation for the final film. So, reblog it is! I reread what I wrote last year, and I still pretty much agree with everything I said. The film is an incredibly deep character driven film, more than the others, and gives us a great view in the way things work in District 13 and how politics works in this district too, among other things I stated at the time. So, enjoy this short blurb and check out the original post for my full thoughts!  

On Second Thought: “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”

Sequels surprise us every once in a while. They get a bad rap (mostly deserved) but sometimes to the detriment of other sequels in any given series. 1,442 more words
