Movie Review: Vampariah (2016)

Mahal (Kelly Lou Dennis, “Three Tutus and a Gun”) is an aswang, an ancient race of vampires derived from Philippine folklore. But that aspect of her being is deeply repressed, and her role in present-day San Francisco is to be a member of an elite vampire-hunter squad. Mahal’s mission is to track down and kill…

Movie Trailer: Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

Dusting off the smell of the superhero ensemble disappointment of “Justice League” comes the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War and it does not disappoint.

Alex Martin (an excellent…

Movie Review: Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

The unique selling point of superhero cinema is the presentation of superpowers on screen and the exploration of what it means to super and to be a hero. Ever since “X-Men” took advantage of digital effects technology to render eye beams and human-generated lightning bolts, the finest examples of superhero cinema have grabbed hold of…
