– (2018) – Giant monsters invade Earth with aid from corporate scum, and it’s up to youth-controlled robots to bring them down. Exactly on par with the first film, from rancid dialog to slapdash action to the feeling that a lot of money was wasted during production. An obnoxious, empty headed children’s movie.
– (2012) – A young scientist brings his dog back to life, sparking an influx of resurrection mayhem. Has a whimsical and emotional beginning, but gradually piles on too many subplots that distract from the heart of the story. Innovative and busy, but lacks focus which ultimately harms the sentimental depths.
– (2018) – A team of female scientists and soldiers venture into a dimension nobody returns from. Has much to do about science terms and interdimensional mythology, but most of the occurrences come down to grand scale mumbo-jumbo. Offers a moment or two of tense violence, but this is mostly drab and soulless.
– (2018) – An alien with a knack for killing armed humans must also deal with eliminating his own species. Gets off to a vibrant, fast paced, and humorous start before running out of steam and becoming nonsensical and ho-hum. The story and editing are so sloppily handled it’s hard to tell what the overall purpose is.
– (1973) – The missing link runs amok while terrorizing people, going to the movies, and playing a piano. It’s clear from the first second that this never intended to be anything but a cheesy comedy, but the problem is that it’s never funny. Easy to get through thanks to a short length, but still tries patience early on.
– (2018) – A few dinosaurs are rescued from a volcanic realm while a newly constructed breed makes trouble in a facility. Peaks 30-minutes in after an exciting lava chase, but the rest is a contest in which means less: the stale plot or the stale characters. Has some dark moments, but when the only sympathy is geared toward CGI monsters, something is seriously wrong.
– (2018) – A small family continues to outlast creatures that attack anything that makes noise. Somehow won the world over, most likely those in for some decent scares and those who’ve never seen Tremors. While there are inventive moments, there are some illogical ones as well, along with predictability and the sad fact that we have no idea who these people are.
– (2016) – Two couples share a bed that has the power to kill them once they hop out. The entire set-up lacks conviction, as the characters are up to something most believe is a bad idea. Some horror moments are okay, but the logic is woefully inept while the pace is disastrously slow. A movie about a bed shouldn’t make you want to fall asleep, but here we are.
