There are a few problems I have with the sequel to the cult horror movie Happy Death Day (2017), but overall it is a genre-bending film which has a lot to offer modern audiences.

Best Movie Snack: Roasted Coconut. Wait? Are we still on the deserted island?
Shyamalan’s superhero trilogy, which began with Unbreakable (2000) and continued sixteen years later with the twist sequel Split (2016) is finally concluded in 2019’s Glass.
Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne star alongside each other in Instant Family, a humorous and at times overly sentimental comedy/drama.
You’ll probably be wondering why this movie was called Peppermint for hours after seeing it. Being that it was the flavour of an ice cream only referenced once in the entire movie, it’s pretty easy to miss the relevance.
Creed II is one of the better additions to the Rocky franchise. Bringing to a cathartic climax the emotional tensions of the previous Creed movie, as well as the first four Rocky films.
It doesn’t have the roaring Whitney Houston ballad of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) or the Mel Brooks hilarity of Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993), but Director Otto Bathurst’s new take on the oft-repeated tale has one thing these older versions don’t.

Either you’ve heard of Dario Argento or you haven’t. He’s one of those directors everyone in East Brunswick has a poster of in their bedroom and only likes his most obscure film. You know, seventies arthouse Italian horror, the genre only someone with a film degree has a basic knowledge of.

For a movie depicting humanity’s early ancestors, and the very struggle to survive, you might be surprised to learn that the title of this film actually refers to the nickname given to a domesticated wolf.
This film was not what I expected it to be going into it, having read or seen little regarding the thing beforehand, and I have to say, much to the film’s credit. When I hear the words “Ghosthunter”, like many people, my mind immediately jumps to the American TV series; with all its silly camera tricks, night-vision-blair-witch-faces and set-up jump-scare fakery.
