Pardon the lack of updates lately, mostly due to my hectic life. It’s been a hell of a year, with things after things piling up rapidly. But I assume my random ramblings aren’t the reason you’re here. You’re probably here because you’re curious- how does the forgettable Snow White film’s sequel/prequel fare? Is it just another […]Read more "Huntsman: Winter’s War Review"
The world of horror and the world of dolls have met several times over the course of cinematic history. There’s Chucky, there’s Annabelle, and of course many more dolls that have only elicited screams. Dolls, thanks to the horror genre, has became as iconic as killer clowns, if you were to ask. And yeah, The […]Read more "The Boy Review"

In a rather expected turn of events, Star Wars: The Force Awakens retained first at the domestic (and international and worldwide) box office this weekend, to the surprise of nobody.

This weekend’s situation is simple- one alpha film, along with two underdogs trudging along sluggishly.

I missed out on the October 2015 recap, but here’s a summary- it was horrible.

But Mother Nature isn’t going to go easy on you, and is probably gonna to show you what’s hell day and night, so you better come ready. That, the film shows successfully.
