Movie Review: Brimstone (2016)

The initial success of Brannon Braga and Adam Simon’s series “Salem” (2015-2017) and the staggering impact of Robert Eggers’ “The Witch” seems to have made American Puritans into high fashion for horror entertainment. Director Martin Koolhoven and producer Els Vandevorst had, for several years before the releases of the aforementioned titles, been producing their own…

Movie Review: Seventh Son (2014)

Once upon a time, back in the Light Ages of Hollywood genre filmmaking (aka the 80s), the ancient fantasy picture was a thing of popular beauty. They weren’t all classics, but the memorable likes of “Conan the Barbarian,” “The Beastmaster,” “Willow,” “The Princess Bride,” “Legend,” “The Neverending Story,” “Dragonslayer,” “The Last Unicorn,” and “The Dark…

Movie Review: Testament of Youth (2014)

There is a sub-genre of the war film that focuses on those away from combat. These films do not display the horrors of warfare or the camaraderie of men under fire, but instead the dramas of those left behind or serving their country behind the lines. Such a film is Testament of Youth, based on…

Movie Review: How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

Built as either a shot to attain a loftier reputation or as penance for afflicting four goddamned “Shrek” movies upon the populace (perhaps both), Dreamworks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon 2 finds the red-headed stepchild studio attempting to go full Pixar and widen the emotional scope of what has been, to date, probably their…

Movie Review: Pompeii (2014)

Paul W.S. Anderson might just be the very avatar of filmmaking mediocrity. Starting with the legendarily bad “Mortal Kombat” adaptation and working his way up a bit from there, he’s made a living off churning out genre films not awful enough to be memorable, but just bad in enough noticeable, glaring ways to make for…

Movie Trailer: How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

The full theatrical trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon 2 has arrived and with it comes more dragon goodness. With the dragons fully integrated into his village, Hiccup now travels the lands in search of new adventures with his feisty dragon Toothless. From appearances it looks like they find two (although time…

Movie Trailer: Pompeii (2014)

If I didn’t read otherwise, I’d swear Roland Emmerich was the director behind FilmDistrict’s upcoming film Pompeii. Why? Well because it’s got his trademarks all over it, including his oft-criticized, over-the-top, CGIed-to-death disaster sequence. Apparently, however, Paul W.S. Anderson, director of such bombastic outings like “Resident Evil: Retribution” and “The Three Musketeers” asked to borrow…
