Now Presenting: – A Review of Hellboy (2019)

McConnaughay

I have never been very invested in the Hellboy despite my best efforts to approach Mike Mignola‘s character with an open mind. Regardless, I would say I was hopeful that director Guillermo del Toro would have the opportunity to complete the Trilogy of films he started in 2004. I can’t say I […]

Now Presenting: – A Review of Parasite

McConnaughay

The Academy Awards receive a lot of criticism and stigma in regards to elitism and exclusivity for what they nominate and subsequently award at the coveted Oscar ceremony.

Rowling‘s Wizarding World in charming and delightful fashion, with both films finding favorable placement on The List and Chamber of Secrets being deemed as a gradual improvement over its predecessor. I’ll be honest though – something that surprised me was how much […]

McConnaughay

Encase you’re unaware, I’ve made a commitment to review all the films from Charles Bands’ Deadly Ten series – a series that began with Weedjies: Halloweed Night. I wouldn’t say I expect this new brand to breathe new life into Full Moon Features, a company I’ve poured a lot of […]
