“28 Days Later”
“Four weeks after a mysterious, incurable virus spreads throughout the UK, a handful of survivors try to find sanctuary.”
Director: Danny Boyle Writer: Alex Garland Staring: Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris, Christopher Eccleston Streaming: HBO Max Release Date: June 27, 2003
When I wrote my blog about my favorite zombie movies (shameless plug), the one movie I truly wanted to rewatch was 28 Days Later (2003). This movie was one of the first zombie movies I remember watching and my fondness for it has only been reinforced after watching it again.
“Barry B. Benson, a bee just graduated from college, is disillusioned at his lone career choice: making honey. On a special trip outside the hive, Barry’s life is saved by Vanessa, a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue them.“
Director: Simon J. Smith, Steve Hickner Writer: Jerry Seinfield, Spike Ferensten, Barry Marder Staring: Jerry Seinfield, Renée Zellweger, Barry Marder, Andy Robin, Chuck Martin, Tom Papa Streaming: Netflix Release Date: November 2, 2007
I have some questions before I get into the movie.
Why did Jerry Seinfeld want to make this movie? Why the Bee Movie? How did this movie cost 150 million dollars to make? How did it gross almost 300 million dollars world wide. There was a video game made based off this movie? Why has Jerry Seinfeld never acted again? Who was this movie made for? What is this movie trying to be?
“Two NYC money launderers make a quick drug deal. Things go wrong, as dirty cops are involved. One of the friends gets amnesia during their escape with the drugs and money.“
Director: Malik Bader Writer: Malik Bader Staring: Liam Hemsworth, Emory Cohen, Zlatko Buric Streaming: HBO Max Release Date: August 8, 2019
When it takes you three or five times to get through a movie, it can not be a good one. I wanted Killerman (2019) to be an easy crime watch but I was instead slogged through a depraved story surrounding characters who try to scream “FUCK!” as loud as they can over people.
Moe (Liam Hemsworth) and Skunk (Emory Cohen) are friends. Criminal friends who are trying to make bank for their own buck. With an untimely double-cross and an expected case of amnesia, things go from promising to horrifying., There are crooked cops intertwined in the chaos, both of whom are truly deplorable people. The atrocities that they commit upon some of the characters are terrifying. The veracity of their evil is over the top for a movie of this poor ilk.
“Supervillains Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Peacemaker and a collection of nutty cons at Belle Reve prison join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X as they are dropped off at the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.”
Director: James Gunn Writer: James Gunn Staring: Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman SAW IN THEATERS Release Date: August 6, 2021
The Suicide Squad may have been the most discussed movie before its release compared to any other this season. When this project was announced there was immediate pressure placed upon director James Gunn and everyone involved. The movie has been mired by uneven expectations, behind the scene battles and the pressure to be unique. Gunn put himself in the cockpit to to create a DC universe movie with the impossible task of hitting many moving bullseyes.
“A drifter obsessed with the supernatural stumbles upon an inn where a severely ill adolescent girl is slowly becoming a vampire.”
Director: Carl Theodor Dreyer Writers: Sheridan Le Fanu, Christen Jul, Carl Theodor Dreyer Staring: Julian West, Maurice Schutz, Rena Mandel Streaming: HBO Max Release Date: August 14, 1934
Vampyr (1932) is on every “must see” horror list. I remember seeing it in books when I was younger and thinking, “That’s not how you spell vampire.” Vampyr is a German film from the early 1930s that tells the story of Allen Grey (Julian West) falling into a horror tale with an unknown entity, only known as a vampire (courtesy of some literature).
I am going to be speaking personally about this movie because I am in the minority in terms of not loving it. I was very confused with what was happening in the story. At the end of the movie I had more questions than answers. Maybe I had a hard time differentiating between the different sisters and the different characters? I also don’t love how in the end, the original vampire was just a woman by the name of Marguerite Chopin. That seems like a cop out.
I am really sorry to say that The Mandalorian has turned into Halo for me. Season three has been a slog for me and I am sad to report that it has been over a month since I have watched an episode of Din DJarin and Grogu traversing the universe. And the saddest part? I…
Call me crazy. Call me an idiot. Call me moronic. You can call me whatever you want, but most importantly, call me a Swiftie. Last week John Rich put out this hypothetical tweet out there talking about the price of reselling Taylor Swift tickets. I immediately replied saying that the Taylor Swift Eras Tour concert…
No. 6Scream 3 (2000) Horror movie franchises tend to jump the shark at some point. Scream 3 (2000) pokes fun at this nature…but also falls into the same trap itself. The setting for Scream 3 is right up my alley. It is set on the set of a horror movie. It is on the set…
