Film Review: ‘The Nun’!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 6th, 2018

Coming in as WORST MOVIE OF THE YEAR so far, ‘The Nun‘ fails to impress on every level. I don’t say this lightly either. I’m a huge proponent of the horror genre and do believe that ‘The Conjuring‘, ‘The Conjuring 2‘, ‘Annabelle‘, and ‘Annabelle Creation‘ are some of the best modern day horror movies we have around. When we were introduced to this demonic nun un ‘The Conjuring 2‘, I had terrific nightmares where I had to sleep with the lights on. This character was horrific in a fantastic way. This nun was the hit of the ‘Conjuring‘ sequel for sure and now we have a whole entire film, simply titled ‘The Nun‘ that gives us a story about her from a couple of decades prior to the events in ‘The Conjuring‘. It’s not a prequel or origin story though as nothing about this demonic nun known as Valek is discussed. With a terrible screenplay, awful dialogue, dreadful editing, and camera movements, and not to mention stale performances – I prayed for the film to get better, but ‘The Nun‘ let me down at every turn. In fact, the film is so horrendous that I actually started to enjoy it on some comedic type of level.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

nattens-dæmoner-2-nonne

Yes, ‘The Conjuring 2‘ made it difficult to sleep for a few nights for me, and since I’ve seen that excellent sequel, I still get visions of one of the demons, which was a nun. It was truly terrifying. Well, just like ‘Annabelle‘ was a spinoff of the first ‘Conjuring‘ film, ‘The Nun‘ will be this sequel’s spinoff movie with James Wan and Peter Safran teaming up again to produce the film.

The Curse of La Llorona – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Apr 17th, 2019

“In the end, The Curse of La Llorona feels forgettable.”

 

The Curse of La Llorona is the latest installment in ‘The Conjuring-Verse‘ which (unfortunately) now means a mediocre jump scare movie that is executive produced by James Wan and shoehorns in references to the Warren family and Annabelle. That isn’t to say the movie is a complete failure by any means. It will certainly delight those who crave jump scares and loud noises to shake them from their seats. Seriously, there are so many jump scares that after about 40 minutes, they stopped affecting me as I became accustomed to them. In the end, the movie is much closer to last fall’s ‘The Nun‘ than any of ‘The Conjuring‘ films, which means it feels forgettable.

‘The Conjuring 3’ Is Heading To The Big Screen!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jun 26th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

If you can’t get enough stories based of the cases of Ed and Lorraine Warren, you’re not alone. New Line Cinema is giving us another film in ‘The Conjuring‘ franchise making this one number three. There’s no official word on what the third film will be about, but one thing we do know is that it will be based on another real-life case from the Warrens and their work as paranormal investigators.

Hey guys, Jana here,

I don’t know about you, but ‘The Conjuring 2‘ had some serious scares in it, I didn’t have to sit on anyone’s lap through the film, like my daughter did, but it had some serious moments that tend to pop back up in the middle of the night when I’m having trouble sleeping. I’m thrilled to report there is another spinoff coming from the film called ‘The Crooked Man‘.

Brace yourselves, every habit-ish line, saying or phrase you can think of is about to be thrust upon you now that Disney has upped the ante on the remake game, announcing that ‘Sister Act‘ is on the block as the next title to be revamped. They’re Catholic, they’re nuns and nuns wear habits, got it.

HORSE GIRL – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Feb 5th, 2020

“Horse Girl is the indie art-house version of Fire in the Sky.”

Director Jeff Baena is no stranger to the offbeat and mysterious realms he tells his stories in. With films about a zombie romance (Life After Beth), a loner who’s looking to party (Joshy), or even a hilarious take on nuns and witches (The Little Hours) – Baena doesn’t shy away from expressing his unique voice in different time periods or genres. His latest film Horse Girl, debuting exclusively on NETFLIX, allows Baena to explore the human psyche when pushed to its limit with the added ingredients of horror and science-fiction. In fact, Horse Girl is the indie art-house version of Fire in the Sky and succeeds in the best ways possible.

IT CHAPTER 2 – 4K UHD Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 11th, 2019

THE FILM


The second and final chapter of ‘IT‘ brings the adult renderings of Stephen King’s kid heroes to the forefront some 27 years later in ‘IT: Chapter 2‘, that stars Bill Hader, Jessica Chastain, and James McAvoy. This sequel runs in at three hours alone, making the two films over five hours long. Director Andy Muschietti has even said there is a 6.5-hour super-cut of the movie, which leads me to ask why this wasn’t released on a streaming format, due to its episodic nature and extensive time run. Still, this second chapter is entertaining enough but suffers from major flaws in pacing, redundancy, and trying to over-complicate things.

‘IT: Chapter 2’ – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 4th, 2019

 

“‘IT: Chapter 2’ has some golden moments of horror and comedy, but it comes at an exhaustive and taxing price.”

‘Good Boys’ – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 14th, 2019

“‘Good Boys’ is so f#*kin’ funny!”

Three young friends find themselves banning together in the R-rated misadventure of a lifetime in ‘Good Boys‘. When you have Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Jonah Hill, and the producers/writers of ‘The Office‘ work on a movie together, you know you’re bound for big laughs, and that’s exactly the case with this movie. ‘Superbad‘ could be a close relative to ‘Good Boys‘, but replace the three high school friends trying to get laid with three elementary school kids who want to hit up a make-out party and finally kiss a girl. The underlying themes of friendship, growing up and moving on are all on display here, where the charm and innocent vulgarity mix perfectly with each other. ‘Good Boys‘ is so fuckin’ funny!

One of my favorite and Top movies of 2017 is coming to Blu-ray on January 23rd. Of course, I’m talking about ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer‘ from director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster). The film stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, and Barry Keoghan. I have described this movie as a sibling to Stanley Kurbick’s film ‘Eyes Wide Shut‘, because of the glaring similarities. Not only is it similar, but it’s a damn good film that stays with you long after you watch it. There looks to be only one extra here and no 4K UHD release yet, but let’s hope that changes. I can’t wait to watch this again and  relive the awkwardness and suspenseful situations this movie delivers.

Blu-ray Review: Free Fire!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Film Portion Reviewed by Janet White:

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.

Film Review: ‘[Transformers: The Last Knight]’

by Janet White on Jun 28th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Transformers The Last Knight - Prime

 

Exploding onto our screens without regard for the narrative or progressive plot structure, comes Transformers: The Last Knight.  True Michael Bay lovers could care less or would even notice the story’s lack of cohesion with this sequel.  They are there for the cool special effects, radical cinematography, and rich hues that make up Michael Bay’s style.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #2!

by Bryan Kluger on Jun 20th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Car_rental

You’re going on vacation with the family or you’re trying to get home from a business trip and nothing seems to go right in the travel department. The flight is delayed, there are 300 people in line for security, not a single employee will help you, and the rent car you reserved is not even in the system. We all have our horror travel stories, some worse than others. In these situations, most of us keep our cool, grab a beer at the airport, and wait for it all to blow over. That being said, our inner monologue would tell a different story, in that we would love to just explode and tell off an employee who isn’t helping our situation at all.

Film Review: ‘[Free Fire]’!!

by Janet White on Apr 21st, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Free Fire - Gun Gang

 

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.  Inundated with morons and piss-poor shooting for a calamitous combination, Free Fire leaves the audience either shaking their heads or bowing over laughing.  Between the mumbling of lines and poor volume control, I missed bits of the dialogue for sure.  It is as if they were aiming to repeat what Tarantino did with Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, but they were not clever enough.  Complete with wondrous never-ending bullet supplies and a villain’s miraculous ability to stave off death repeatedly aka “movie magic,” Free Fire simply does not make much sense.  Could a person, shot in their right arm, fire a weapon (even automatic rifles) with their right hand?

Film Review: ‘Before I Fall’!!

by Janet White on Mar 3rd, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Before I Fall - Party

 

Before I Fall, based on the novel written by Lauren Oliver, opens with an out of focus shot of Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch). Sam, as she is affectionately called, is for all intents and purposes, perfect.  She is pretty, dates the best looking jock, and is part of the top clique in the school. Four friends, Sam (Deutch), Lindsay (Halston Sage), Ally Harris (Cynthy Wu), and Elody (Medalion Rahimi), ruling the school, doing everything together, and partying hard are the ingredients of your typical high school drama. Next, the viewer is inundated with a montage of the people in her world beginning their days in different ways. Suddenly a dread comes over me, am I stuck watching a teenybopper film?  Read the rest of this entry »

‘Gotham City Sirens’ Will Rock Theaters Soon!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

GCS Cv1 var

Margot Robbie and director David Ayer are back together, the last time this happened, the world received ‘Suicide Squad‘. The next venture is even more of a daunting task, and that is ‘Gotham City Sirens‘. I’ll assume that not everyone eats, sleeps and breathes DC comics and I’ll slow it down. DC is the comic book world I prefer to live in, I like dark, deep, broody, melancholy atmospheres, and I’m not entirely certain the sun ever hits the center of Gotham City, but I’m ok with that. Marvel is too bright and flashy and, just not me.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Conjuring 2’

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 12th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

157343_front

THE FILM

It seems like a ton of horror movies come out every year, and most times, they don’t live up to their potential. There are a handful of horror movies over the last decade that really satisfy us horror fans. Films like ‘The Babadook‘, ‘It Follows‘, and ‘The Conjuring‘ will still be talked about for years to come. One name in the horror genre, or at least in recent years is James Wan. This man burst onto the scene with ‘Saw‘, which was basically genre changing and spawned a ton of sequels. Wan also made a few other horror films, all testing the bounds and pushing us into a new horror direction, while still respecting his influences.
