The Reviewinator: Terminator – Dark Fate (2019)

Linda Hamilton. James Cameron. With special appearance by Arnold Scwharzenegger. I hadn’t been this excited for a Terminator 3 since Terminator 3. T2: Judgment Day remains my favorite movie of all-time, so of course I’m all for going back in … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Rambo – Last Blood (2019)

“In a way, it was funny, a seventy-two-year-old man setting the pace, running them all into the ground.” This quote from David Morrell’s original novel First Blood, though referring to a different character, has become strangely prophetic and frighteningly accurate when … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: IT – Chapters 1 & 2 (2017/2019)

I usually don’t combine reviews unless it’s a TV show, but since the two chapters of IT are clearly two halves of a whole, I decided to make an exception. Whereas the Stephen King book zig-zags between the child characters and they’re … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Dark Phoenix (2019)

Here we go again. In this tiresome age of superhero do-overs, we now have the retelling of the Phoenix storyline first told in X-Men: The Last Stand. If memory serves, these “prequel” movies are supposed to co-exist with the original … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Star Trek – Discovery (Season 2)

When we last saw the Discovery, it was face-to-face with the Enterprise, igniting hopes that the glory days of Star Trek were about to warp back into our living rooms. Discovery’s first season was such a forlorn departure in tone, … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Glass (2019)

It seems almost fitting that the franchise that began with a train wreck also ends with one. It’s been 19 years since Unbreakable impressed audiences with its mysterious take on superheroes in the real world. And it wasn’t until Bruce … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Creed II (2018)

Ready to party like it’s 1985? You better be. After Ivan Drago went curiously unmentioned in the first Creed movie during discussions of Apollo’s death, devoting an entire sequel to the Dragos is welcome compensation. It seemed an inevitable match-up, … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Halloween (2018)

It seems every 10 years or so, the Halloween franchise ignores a great portion of its sequels. In 1988, Halloween 4 ignored III; in 1998, Halloween H20 ignored everything after II; and 2007 saw Rob Zombie’s abysmal attempt at a … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Fear the Walking Dead (Season 4)

How did we get here? How did a show that never stood a chance against its far-superior but still-struggling-in-the-ratings predecessor make it to four seasons? Without a single likable character, not to mention the haphazard storytelling, most shows like this … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Extinction (2018)

(I don’t usually include spoilers in my reviews, but sometimes a movie comes along that’s SUCH a waste of my time that I feel spoilers must be revealed to save others from wasting theirs. This is your first warning.) Oh, … Continue reading
