The best combination I can possibly think of to describe this film is “Pursuit of Happyness” meets “Psycho”. . . Say what?
Adam Wingard’s The Guest isn’t necessarily a horror film. Strictly speaking, it’s more of a suspense thriller in the 1980s fashion. However, when one contemplates the themes of the film, a decidedly horrific element emerges. Dozens of movies, books, and televisions shows have explored the idea of allowing evil into your life. And, yes, some of the most frightening works of art are about evil being forced upon you. But there’s just something about the idea of welcoming it in that just sends shivers up our spines.

This movie is definitely one that will have you on the edge of your seat, thinking hard about what you would do in certain situations, and trying to keep track of the clues to decide who is guilty. This movie involves violent torture scenes and should only be viewed by adults. Continue Reading

“It’s Air Force One on water,” that’s what I said when I saw the trailer. It wasn’t a criticism, just an observation. I quickly discovered, however, that Captain Phillips was much, much more.
Because Tom hanks. That’s all the explanation you need, just because Tom Hanks. Continue Reading

The first thing that should be mentioned about World War Z is that this isn’t a zombie movie. In your typical zombie movie you have 3 things.Close encounters that result in a gory mess (aka, shotgun to the head), stupid characters making stupid decisions(no, stop, don’t open that door), and zero plot. These stereotypes in no way describe World War Z. Continue Reading

So this past week my wife and I took a chance on Now You See Me. Now I have been a fan of magic since I was a young boy. One of my all-time favorite birthday presents was a magic kit to do small magic tricks. Growing up I have seen magic shows, watched several specials, including when the David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty disappear and when he walked through the Great Wall of China.

Back in 1993, this little movie called Jurassic Park came out in theaters. (That’s 20 years ago… Wow) I’m not sure when my parents deemed me old enough to watch it, but it was well after leaving theaters. After I was allowed to see it, I lived in paranoia. From then on I’m pretty sure a T-Rex stood outside my bedroom window every night. Despite the paranoia, I loved the movie and it has become a classic. Following the success of the the first movie, they decided to make 2 more with a 4th planned for June 2014. Either to promote the new movie or just to make some more money, they released the original in 3D, this past weekend. So of course I had to go see it. Now don’t get me wrong I enjoy 3D movies, but the main driving force was that I had never seen it on the big screen. Another reason was that my wife had never seen it. Never!!! Aside from making it 3D, no other changes were made to the movie. I was hoping the annoying girl would get eaten at the end, but sadly they didn’t change that either.
