Now Presenting: A Review of The Night Before

McConnaughay

Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen struck comedy gold with the 2013 release of This is the End, creating a fun, meta, stoner film. Thereafter, they tried their hand with a new absurdist comedy The Interview, a controversial film that never made it to a worldwide release. For some reason, I’ve […]

Now Presenting: A Review of Noelle

McConnaughay

   If you couldn’t tell by your dwindling bank-account or having to sit across from your racist uncle, the holiday season is upon us and that means you’re sure to hear the sleigh bells ring (or … dreidels spin?) whether you’re listening or not. Never to be a Grinch (that’s later […]

Now Presenting: A Review of The Lion King (2019)

McConnaughay

Whether a remake or re-imagining is necessary often boils down to one or two key variables, whether such a film is in demand and whether that film can be improved on.

Taking a Stab Tuesdays: – 3 From Hell

McConnaughay

In a previous edition of Taking a Stab Tuesdays, I went back and reviewed Rob Zombie’s debut film House of 1,000 Corpses. Although the film wasn’t without its ambition and intrigue, its placement on “The List” left a lot to be desired. Rob Zombie wears his influences on his sleeve […]

Taking a Stab Tuesdays!: – A Review of Hereditary

McConnaughay

Hereditary was a film I was reluctant to watch. I had seen the positive critical reception and, as a genre fan who enjoys seeing unique ideas brought to screen, it was a film that’d always be on my radar ‘til I swallowed my trepidation and watched. It wasn’t the director […]
