The Reviewinator: Resident Evil – The Final Chapter (2017)

15 years is an impressive run for any franchise, but infinitely more impressive for one like Resident Evil that’s comprised mostly of over-the-top and mind-numbingly ridiculous entries with virtually no sense of narrative consistency whatsoever. And as a fan of the video games, it’s … Continue reading

Runstedler’s Pick of the Month: T2: Trainspotting

Not to be confused with the also excellent T2: Judgement Day (one of the best sci-fi films of all time and James Cameron’s finest hour), T2: Trainspotting 2 is well worth the wait and delivers the goods. Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to Edinburgh … Continue reading

Runstedler’s DVD Pick of the Month: Bad Boys (1983)

Not to be confused with the Will Smith/Martin Lawrence buddy cop Bad Boys series (‘Point Break or Bad Boys II?’), Rick Rosenthal’s 1983 Bad Boys tells a much darker tale. Sean Penn stars as Mick O’Brien, a troubled kid who means well, but keeps getting into … Continue reading

Review: Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (Season 1, Episode 1)

I, for one, was a casual fan of the film adaptation of the same name. Jim Carrey was capably madcap to be a chameleon thespian and the yarn was suitably morose and devilishly dark. The TV series aim to correct … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Patriots Day (2016)

The Boston Marathon bombing was a tragic act of terrorism that shook the world. The harrowing five-day nightmare was watched by millions, either by seeing it on the news or by following it on social media. Updates were frequent and … Continue reading

Review: Taboo (Season 1, Episode 1)

Sweep and grandeur is not something producer Ridley Scott is lacking in his production. Therefore, going into Taboo somewhat cold, I knew the overall scope of this miniseries would be unparalleled. Plus, he coaxed the notoriously selective Tom Hardy into … Continue reading

Runstedler’s DVD Pick of the Month: Hard Boiled

Yippee ki yay! ‘Tis the season for Die Hard, folks. But what’s ‘better than a dozen Die Hards’? Well, it’s John Woo’s 1992 film Hard Boiled (not a film about eggs), and this is saying a lot because the original Die Hard is one of the … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Rogue One – A Star Wars Story (2016)

8 movies in, not including Episode VIII (or is it 10 movies in, if you include the Ewok movies?), and we get the first non-episodic Star Wars movie, taking place between Episodes III & IV. While some may think of it as Episode 3.5, it’s more … Continue reading
