Flatliners is Half-Assed Horror Hoping to Coast By on Deceptive Marketing (Review)

I’ve been looking forward to Flatliners.  I loved the original film so much that I was hoping against hope that it would be amazing.  But signs were bad.  Remakes of cool movies from the 80s and 90s don’t have a great track record (remember the Total Recall remake? ‘Cause I sure don’t).   Also Flatliners didn’t have a rating on Rotten Tomatoes when I looked.  I’m guessing there was a review moratorium – bad films prevent bad reviews in hopes of drawing numbers that they don’t deserve.  IMDB gives a writing credit was to Peter Filardi, who wrote the original, but that was just for the story. The actual screenplay was by Ben Ripley, the man who gave us Species III. Read more

Rogue One:  A Star Wars Story – Make No Mistake This is a War Movie [Review]

My goodness, director Gareth Edwards had some pretty big shoes to fill – Rogue One had to bridge the fairly sizable gap between Episode III and IV, it had to tell a great story about how the plans for the Death Star were acquired, it had to fit thematically and visually with all the other films and yet still feel fresh.  Other films have tried that and failed – in this very franchise.  Anyway, that’s a tall order.  Luckily, in my mind, Rogue One succeeds on all counts.
