Pet Sematary Review

Pet Sematary, based on the novel by horror master Stephen King, runs two-minutes less than the 1989 original for which King penned the script. This version is a fast-paced dive into the macabre with a constantly unnerving mood, jump scares galore and fantastic performances. A big change to the source material may annoy purists, but either way this 2019 release could have used more character development to truly deliver it’s final punch.

US Review

US is about you and I, it's about the U.S and it's about all of human civilization. Although Jordan Peele's directorial debut Get Out wore its theme on its sleeve and was transparent with its story of racism in American, US wears its theme with a thin-veil, but the most obvious thematic story being told is one of workers class in American, and ultimately the world over. And yeah, it's scary.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2

Set to the backdrop of 'Awesome Mixtape #2,' Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team's adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill's true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes' aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.

Ghost In The Shell

In 1995 Ghost in the Shell directed by Mamoru Oshii and based on the manga by Shirow Masamune was released, since then it's become something a cult anime classic. When I watched the film as a kid, I found it to be a bore, it's deeper questions asked about life and what makes us human was lost on me. Similarly the same year I watched Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, which I also found to be boring and its more minutiae details lost on me. Where both films featured action and cool sci-fi worlds, they asked deeper things of the audience. The 2017 film based on Masamune's manga is none of these things and it's boring to me for all the wrong reasons.

The Fate Of The Furious

Yeah, we're up to number eight of these Fast and Furious films now. By this stage the Saw franchise has gone 3D, Police Academy has given up and Jason Voorhees has decided to take on Manhattan. Well, the Fast crew are going to take on New York and their own leader as -- if you haven't watched any promotional material -- Dom, the leader, family man, freshly married and seemingly semi-retired from his old lifestyle is going bad. Dominic Toretto has gone rogue
