Movie Recommendation of the Week #9

The premise of Point Blank isn’t anything terribly original. A man’s wife gets kidnapped and now he’s trying to get her back. While the film isn’t wholly inventive, it is executed well. Be aware that this is more of a soft recommendation than usual. Point blank isn’t great or even very memorable, but it is…

Cottage Country Review

Cottage Country Cottage Country is a movie that I saw a trailer for and then just sort of forgot about until they added it to Netflix. The sole reason I watched this movie was for Tyler Labine from the excellent Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. This movie seemed to have the same kind of idea,…

By Sam Kench MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD – YOU’VE BEEN WARNED So the 2nd season of the Netflix Original TV show “House of Cards” was released on Friday, February 14, 2014 and I figured I’d give a quick review of the first episode. Warning, there are going to be some really big spoilers. First off let…

Kevin Spacey is the King of the “House of Cards” (2013)

“House of Cards“ is based off of a book and a 1990 BBC miniseries of the same name. I have not seen or read either, so my review is solely on the Netflix adaptation.

Creep (2004) Macabre month of horror #8

I’m not entirely sure why, but when I see the poster for this movie, I can’t shake the feeling that the ‘Human Centipede‘ is the hand inside the train car. Am I the only one who see’s that?  This is the most solid film in the collection. It is the only one that I feel…

Following (1998) Neo-noir month part 1 of 3

Following is a Neo-noir film written and Directed by Christopher Nolan. Christopher Nolan is a well known director now, but Following was his first feature film. He is most well known for “The Dark Knight“ and “Inception“. I think ‘Inception‘ is horribly over rated. I don’t think that it is a bad movie but people…

Inappropriate Movie Summaries

Sam and I watched one episode of “The Benson Interruption” on Netflix the other day. It was a really sad excuse for a show but there was one really good part of a comedian giving inappropriate movie summaries. The funniest was “Two women visit the bottom of the Grand Canyon; Thelma and Louise“. So, Sam…
