I don’t remember anyone putting this fourth version of “A Star is Born” on their must-see anticipated lists, but now that it’s out, everyone is going back to see it again and again. Which shouldn’t be a surprise, really. There’s something about this story of the experienced older musician taking the young ingenue under his belt until she eclipses him Continue Reading...

Highly Suspect Reviews: Venom

Not exactly the most anticipated super-hero (sorta) movie ever, but at the same time, everyone wants to know, HOW IS IT? The expectations for Tom Hardy playing Spider-Man’s traditional symbiote-decked villain were low-to-trainwreck and our audience’s schadenfreude is palpable. Well folks, we got bad news for you. It’s not really that bad. Not really great either but…oh hell, just listen Continue Reading...

Nicholas Cage reaches new heights of insanity in this revenge horror from the director of Beyond the Black Rainbow. A Manson-esque cult leader (Linus Roache) decides that he’s fated to have Nic’s girlfriend (Andrea Riseborough) for himself and then the movie takes about 10,000 hits of acid and starts killing everything. Or Cage does. Something like that. The anticipation for Continue Reading...

Director Shane Black managed to get the job helming the new Predator movie and teamed up with his old buddy Fred Dekker to write it. Now, this comedy-action-horror featuring a predator on Earth versus a team of miscreant soldiers…and then eventually versus a supah-predator, is going to have a mixed reaction for sure from the die-hard Predator fan camp. But Continue Reading...
