The Haunting of Hill House : Horror Done Right

A major problem with some of the popular works in the horror genre has been its over-reliance on the supernatural stuff. Relying only upon suspense and jump scares to illicit audience’s emotions rather than developing a effective character driven horror.

There are what seem to be dozens of huge rigs and chunky 18-wheelers driven by large, cross men with long hair and bad teeth, or no hair and no teeth, their rides pimped out with skulls and other badass accessories. Everything looks churned and charred: the heat … Continue reading Movie Review : Mad Max – Fury Road

Movie Review – Captain America : The Winter Soldier

The problem with many of the superhero movies is that they are operating under the assumption that everyone in the audience knows all the hymns. It’s a lot easier—and lazier—for a screenwriter to simply do a roll call of characters and events while letting fans fill in all the blanks.

Movie Review : Trainspotting

It’s a really honest portrayal of drugs and is surely one of the finest “drug” movie out there. There’s a joyous feeling coupled with despair that really pervades that film and I think it does the subject justice. Danny Boyle’s classic holds up terrifically well.
