Predestination (2015)

Is fate predestined?  Must we live out the roles given to us?  These questions are explored in the film Predestination.  As we prepare for Terminator Genisys later this week, I’d recommend adding this to your list of films to watch beforehand. Story (4/5) – The story was written by Michael and Peter Spierig, based on … Continue reading Predestination (2015)

The Pyramid (2014)

This movie was released about the time when I first became interested in writing movie reviews.   The Pyramid holds a special meaning for me in that it was the first movie to expose me to the concept of a limited release film. Prior to that, I just assumed most movies I wanted to watch would … Continue reading The Pyramid (2014)

Jurassic World (2015)

In some ways, Jurassic World is like the franchise itself.  After 10 years, we find attendance and memories of the park in decline.  In an attempt to keep the park viable and fresh, the people in charge have decided to create something new to bring interest back. The metaphor goes deeper though.  Let's look at … Continue reading Jurassic World (2015)

Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)

Insidious 3 takes place several years prior to the events of … Continue reading Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)

A Haunting on Gabriel Street (2012)

Out this week on rental is an independent film called A Haunting on Gabriel Street.  Any background on this title was difficult to find considering that it was original released under the name of The Sigil. The movie was written by Nathan Dean Snyder and Brandon Cano-Errecart.  Snyder performed double duties as writer and actor.  … Continue reading A Haunting on Gabriel Street (2012)

Asylum (2014)

Asylum is an apparent bait-and-switch for horror fans.  The marketing suggests a film about a S.W.A.T. team sent to stop demonic possessions within an asylum.  What’s delivered, however, is a MST3K inspired comedy. After some research, I learned that I was missing out on the real magic of the film though.  According to its primary … Continue reading Asylum (2014)
