Saw JOKER. Spoilers follow. 

It was beautifully shot, well-acted, locations curated and lit and retro-aged perfectly. Great costuming and sense of other place that mostly stuck aside from a few really notable exceptions. I think Joaquin Phoenix did a good job with the r...

Yeah, long time away. I've basically spent the summer off of social media of all types. I've embraced antisocial media and I have to say, it's been pretty great. I mean, I love you all. I really do. But I had too many voices in my head. So many that I couldn't hear my...

I'll avoid talking about what's really important and instead talk about movies and other things. The really important stuff is too raw to touch on directly. Maybe I'll get back to it. Maybe it'll be suffused throughout all this.

Oh, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, my love for you, it is not a healthy thi...

So let's talk real quick about another of the fun little symptoms induced by the Howling Pit. It's a thing I've seen for as long as I've been on the internet (which far predates the Long September of 1994 or was it 1996?). 

Movies, and frankly, games and comics and stor...

Quick follow up to my DAWN OF THE DEAD post. In the original script, James Gunn called out a bunch of brand names for the mall stores that our luckless heroes find themselves trapped in.

I'm not sure how it would read if they had done this. My suspicion is that they did...

Spoilers for both the 1978 and 2004 version of DAWN OF THE DEAD follow.

I know it's super-fashionable to dunk on Zack Snyder now. I mean, he ruined the DC cinematic universe, right? (He didn't, though I'm certainly not down with...

Thoughts on SAVAGELAND

Spoilers for this film and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD follow. You've been warned.

Here's the trailer for SAVAGELAND:

I don't know if you know this, but I'm usually a big fan of zombie flicks. At least when they're done well. And I'll tolerate them, to...
