I don't really know what happened, but in September I found a bit more rhythm and motivation to put up content. Maybe I was starting to feel guilty calling myself a "blogger" by putting up nothing but empty wrap-around posts and the occasional streamed review (see August -- that was dire!). I have been one … Continue reading Month in Review: September ’19
Release: Friday, August 26, 2016 [Theater] Written by: Fede Álvarez; Rodo Sayagues Directed by: Fede Álvarez Don't Breathe, the sophomore effort from Uruguayan director Fede Álvarez, is what you'd get if you expanded into a full-length feature that scene from The Silence of the Lambs in which Buffalo Bill stalks a terrified Clarice Starling with night vision goggles while … Continue reading Don’t Breathe

Karyn Kusama (Jennifer's Body; Aeon Flux) invites you inside the strange goings-on of what was supposed to be a casual get-together among longtime friends, friends reuniting after a traumatic event.

Release: Friday, July 1, 2016 [Theater] Written by: James DeMonaco Directed by: James DeMonaco I am convinced the French marketing for the third Purge film (see above) is the most responsible form of it we have. The Purge: Election Year manages to be as inane as it looks and here is a movie poster that pulls no punches when … Continue reading The Purge: Election Year
Release: Friday, June 24, 2016 [Theater] Written by: Anthony Jaswinski Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra Blake Lively vs. Huge Shark: The Movie is a pretty sweet little thriller, a self-contained enterprise that seeks to unnerve rather than terrify by tapping into human's innate fear of deepwater-dwelling beasts like great whites (not to mention horrifyingly large jellyfish). Jaume Collet-Serra's tropical-set horror/thriller … Continue reading The Shallows
Last time we were here, Paul was rocking a sweet silver hairdo, the trademark of famed music producer Jerry Heller whom he portrayed in his second collaboration with director F. Gary Gray. Let's actually take a look at his first experience working with him in the excellent crime/hostage thriller The Negotiator, where Paul takes on … Continue reading Paul G — #5
Release: Friday, June 10, 2016 [Theater] Written by: James Wan; Carey Hayes; Chad Hayes; David Leslie Johnson Directed by: James Wan The horror event of the year has arrived and no one is safe. Not the Warrens from nightmarish visions; not the British family whose home turns into a petri dish for malevolent spirits; not James Wan from criticism. … Continue reading The Conjuring 2
As we wind down another great blogathon, I'd like to thank each and every one of you for your great posts.

Ruth from Flixchatter stopped by to give us her thoughts on 2006’s Casino Royale, the epitome of James Bond. Head on over to Three Rows Back and have a read!
It’s week two of the Decades Blogathon – 6 edition – hosted by myself and the awesome Tom from Digital Shortbread! The blogathon focuses on movies that were released in the sixth year of the decade. Tom and I are running a different entry each day (we’ll also reblog the other’s post) and I’m thrilled to welcome the one and only Ruth from FlixChatter. I’m sure many of you will know of Ruth’s brilliant site and for our little event she is reviewing Daniel Craig’s first foray into the world of Bond with 2006’s Casino Royale.
I can’t believe it’s been a decade since Casino Royale came out. I just rewatched it this weekend to refresh my memory, though I had probably rewatched it a few times in the last 10 years. It’s still as good as the first time I saw it, and I still would…
