Blade Runner 2049 Review

In Movies by Ent Dem Team0 Comments

The cynic in me, assumes creative types, whether it’s actor or director only return to franchises for the money. It’s a theory that often turns out to be true.  They walk done well-worn paths of  nostalgia by offering the same predictable beats which made the original so good without truly saying anything new. Upon hearing that a new Blade Runner …

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Review

In Movies by Ent Dem Team0 Comments

Kingsman: The Secret Service took the overly serious and stuffy nature of spy films and turned that back towards camp and funny, more reminiscent of a Roger Moore film than anything Matt Damon or Daniel Craig might star in. Yet it wasn’t simply a response to that world it was stylish and violent and fit in well with the current …

It’s a big month in TV and Movies. So Pudee and Steve make it their mission to try and discuss all of it. They fail. What we do get to is the Game of Thrones finale, The Twin Peaks: The Return finale and the latest Marvel/ Netflix crossover with Defenders. There is whitewashing of Hellboy, hiring and firing of directors …

A truly bad day can either ruin anything good or make the smallest thing the perfect salve for it. Without going into a relatively over dramatic rendering of my bad day I will just let you know that was the type of mood I was in when walking in to see Stephen King’s It. The good news is that IT …

Baby Driver Review

Edgar Wright is one of those filmmakers that film nerds almost universally embrace and I personally feeling excitement when the director releases something new. A true modern genre director in the way Tarrantino is, yet his signature is style rather than dialogue. Wright now moves to the crime genre in his latest Baby Driver. In some ways, it feels like …

Spiderman: Homecoming Review

In Movies by Ent Dem Team0 Comments

There has been a plethora of Spiderman movies in recent years and they have slowly diminished if not in quality at the very least in impact. When Marvel became involved with Sony to connect and produce the new Spiderman film to the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe there was just a glimmer of hope. There was always a question of whether …

Transformers The Last Knight Review

In Movies by Ent Dem Team0 Comments

It took five movies for the Fast and the Furious series to get to what is now a winning formula, the lesson being it’s never too late to get good. It was with that whimsical notion that I entered what would be the fifth Transformers film, Transformers the Last Knight. Maybe after three bad films and one mildly amusing one …

Wonder Woman Review

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

The beleaguered DC movie universe has been having a hard time of it especially with Suicide Squad and Batman vs. Superman. Neither film was warmly received and so there were lowered expectations going into their latest effort Wonder Woman. The equally surprising and welcome news is that Wonder Woman is great. Wonder Woman is not unique amongst super hero films …

Alien Covenant Mini Review

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

What I Liked About Alien Covenant: The previous entries in the Alien franchise have lost focus and gone into all sorts of direction. Alien Covenant returns to a more focused origin story and is efficient in the way it tells it. In actual concrete terms, this means that there are scares and tension throughout. It’s hard to pinpoint iconic scenes …
