When the Kings Collide, it’s on in ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ (Review)

When the Kings Collide, it’s on in ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ (Review)

The path to the epic showdown between Godzilla and Kong in this MonsterVerse has not exactly been the smoothest road. All three movies leading up to this point have dealt with issues within the asphalt of said road. Godzilla didn’t show enough of everyone’s favorite lizard, Kong: Skull Island was not seen in the same light as Peter Jackson’s take on the giant ape (though I beg to differ), and Godzilla: King of the Monsters showed too much fighting in the dark, making it difficult to see exactly what was happening. Let’s also not forget that all three of these movies to varying degrees had human character problems due to script issues. And coming into Godzilla vs. Kong, I had some reservations considering how disappointed I was with King of the Monsters and how this film was being directed by someone who has made two of the worst movies I’ve seen in the past five years (one of which you can read about here). However, despite all this, Godzilla vs. Kong shows us what we’ve all been waiting for leading up to this film. While the human character issues remain a problem, when the two titans collide, it’s shown in such grand fashion that it causes pure excitement, and that alone is worth the price of admission rather than merely watching it from the comfort of your home.

Blair Witch: A Carbon Copy Sequel Lacking Scares or Originality [Review]

Blair Witch: A Carbon Copy Sequel Lacking Scares or Originality [Review]

Today’s “found footage” horror movies owe a debt to The Blair Witch Project, the original found footage film from 17 years ago. That movie was a smash hit thanks to the “found footage” that had never been shown in theaters, which left some people initially believing the events in the movie actually happened. Since then a slew of horror movies (most notably the Paranormal Activity series) have found success by featuring “found footage,” thus making the time right for taking another crack at exploring the Blair Witch mythology, while at the same time disregarding the awful sequel Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2. Even though director Adam Wingard (The Guest, You’re Next) does have some tricks up his sleeve that he reveals in the final act, it’s not enough to save Blair Witch, which feels completely unnecessary given its lack of scares or originality.

How does one follow up a year that kicked everything off with the astounding Deadpool, freaked us all out with the masterful The Witch and then made us laugh to tears in a Sausage Party?

The Top 10 Horror Films Since 2010 to Watch This Halloween

The Top 10 Horror Films Since 2010 to Watch This Halloween

After browsing through the typical greatest horror films of all time lists and seeing the same titles over and over again I grew bored. I’m sick of seeing The Exorcist declared the greatest horror movie ever made. As for The Shining? I think that movie sucks. There – I said it – it’s atrociously acted and ridiculous. I tried watching it again the other week and I couldn’t sit through it. So let’s take a look at some CURRENT horror titles for a much needed change in pace.
