Hellboy is Beautifully Gruesome & David Harbour is Excellent (Review)

Hellboy is Beautifully Gruesome & David Harbour is Excellent (Review)

I’ve been looking forward to a new Hellboy since I first heard about it.  I was a humongous fan of the original two Hellboys (and also director Guillermo del Toro) and even though he wasn’t directing this latest reboot, it looked like it was going to be awesome.  Then something happened and it turned out horrible? At the time of this writing, Rotten Tomatoes has Hellboy 2019 at 15% and I think it deserves better. So now that I’ve seen what all the fuss (and the hate) was about, I have to ask:  what happened here? Read more

Pet Sematary is Legitimately, Unrelentingly Terrifying (Review)

God I love Stephen King.  I’ve been looking forward to Pet Sematary since I saw the trailer.  I’ve never read the book but I saw the 1989 movie, which would be handy for comparison if I could remember anything about it. Sadly, that was 25+ years ago so all I remember was it scared the piss out of me. That was enough though – I had high hopes for this 2019 remake. Read more
