Andy Muschietti’s IT Chapter Two (2019) begins with a simple premise that hurls us back into Stephen King’s twisted universe. When a gruesome attack occurs outside of the Derry summer carnival, it becomes clear that the horror the Losers’ Club swore to destroy in their youth has returned to plague their hometown. IT Chapter Two returns to Derry twenty-seven years after the events of IT (2017) in an attempt to raise the stakes and heighten the horror of the first chapter.
Written by Joe Ahart // Edited by Andrew Busch // ***MILD SPOILERS AHEAD*** When people recall the 80’s, it is hard not to think about the countless popular franchises that spawned out of the era. Terminator, Nightmare on Elm Street, Back to the Future, and so many other movies from this era still hold cultural value to this day. Some are even […]
Written by: Nick Farinola // Edited by: Joe Ahart Area 51 is somewhat of a hot topic online. Whether you call BS on the siege or not, you can’t deny the interest behind the idea of wanting to know the history of what goes on behind the sealed doors of the notorious and highly classified US Air Force base. Do […]
Written by: Nick Farinola // Edited by: Nick Farinola and Joe Ahart When I think of video games, the first thing, or person rather, that pops in my head is Master Chief from the Halo series. Halo is the prime example of a jam-packed, epic AAA-game with a massive budget allocated to the developers and publishers to spend on […]
Written by: Nick Farinola // Edited by: Joe Ahart It’s tough giving anything, let alone a video game, a perfect score. Calling something a masterpiece seems completely subjective. What defines a masterpiece? Generally, it’s widely accepted as such by a large audience. Christopher Nolan’s Inception is a not only a technical masterpiece, but also a narrative one. 2018’s incredible God […]
The Witness feels like an amateur attempt at science fiction. There’s an image but no imagination, nothing anchoring the initial idea into something resonant and real.
While the lavish spectacle and surprising heart of Alita make it a great time at the theater, uneven performances and a mediocre script squander its potential.
Dan Gilroy’s Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) is a playful horror-satire that targets the world of contemporary art’s self-absorbed social elite to deliver a clear message about the distinction between art as a commercial commodity and art as genuine self-expression.
If you’ve been wondering what to watch next in Netflix’s endless library, Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle could be the next movie on the list!
Written by: Nick Farinola // Edited by: Joe Ahart You read the title correctly. A video game helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. Sounds just as weird as you’d expect, saying it out loud or writing it down. How could a video game help someone overcome a difficult period in their life, especially a […]
Written by Nick Farinola // Edited by Joe Ahart Let me take some time out of your day to share with you my brutally honest opinion of Fallout 76. Ah, the infamous Fallout 76. By now, pretty much half of the videos on my YouTube feed cover Fallout 76…and how much of an “atrocity” it is on the gaming […]
David Gordon Green’s Halloween (2018) is by all means an enjoyable horror film, but despite the reverence it pays to John Carpenter’s 1978 original, it is hard to ignore the film’s status as a modern reboot.
Everyone I know who’s seen mid90’s says the same thing about it. “I liked it, it was good,” goes the common refrain, and while nobody I’ve talked to thinks it’s terrible, none of us call it great either.
Mandy (2018) is a dark and grotesque revenge film that begins as a light, sugary dream. As the film opens on a nondescript location someplace near the Shadow Mountains in 1983, the main character Red (Nicolas Cage) works as a logger, while Mandy (Andrea Riseborough) works as a cashier at a nearby gas station.
By: Nick Farinola // Edited by Joe Ahart // Odds are you’ve probably have never heard of Earth Defense Force. Admittedly, it sounds like a campy, ‘80s sci-fi B-movie. If you guessed that, the good news is that you’re not very far off. The Earth Defense Force series is the video game equivalent of […]
hat’s right webheads, with almost 90 critic reviews logged into metacritic, Insomniac’s rendition of Marvel’s beloved web-slinger sits at an amazing 87 score.
By: Nick Farinola There’s nothing quite like assassinating your targets with a hidden blade in the historically accurate settings of the Assassin’s Creed games, severing the limbs of Dead Space’s frightening necromorphs on the USG Ishimura spaceship, or mutilating space Nazis with combat axes and a weapon that fires self-detonating explosives in the Wolfenstein reboot series. Violence is a prevalent […]
