You think you recognize this deal with the devil, but there’s another element at play

The Disaster Artist Review

“The Disaster Artist shows us what it means to create, expose ourselves, and the risks of showing something at the world and have it look back.”

TOP TEN SCI-FI HORROR MOVIES

“Not recommended for: novice trippers, Reagan Republicrats, copywriters with ideals intact (both of you), nor especially RayBan-wearing dictators.”

TOP TEN UNDERRATED SLASHER FILMS

“Escaped psychopaths? Check. Teenaged babysitters? Check. Buckets of blood? Check. Yet some of the films on the following list also offer plots that at least try to bring something different to the table.”

TOP TEN SATANIC HORROR MOVIES

“There is only one way to get rid of temptation and that is to yield to it. Resist it, the soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself.”

REVIEW – THE CINEMATOLOGIST: ‘Ghostbusters’ (2016)

“After publicly speaking out against Ghostbusters and Paul Feig last week–which resulted in being blocked by the Ghostbusters director on Twitter–The Cinematologist is back this week with a review for the remake/reboot of the 1984 Ivan Reitman classic.”

Have a Short Film or Web Series?

“We are currently accepting pitches and samples of scripted, self-produced short films and both scripted and unscripted web-series (currently airing or not) for online distribution.”

Santa Sangre: An Appreciation

“Where other films would shy away from the weird or cut away before things get ugly, Jodorowsky grabs the viewer by the collar and drags them into the thick of it.”

‘Taxi Driver’: A Look Back

“Taxi Driver is one of the most gripping, enthralling, perfect films I’ve ever seen. It is, quite simply, the greatest crime film ever made, and it represents the dizzying peak of every fantastic career involved.”

REVIEW: ‘The End of the Tour’ Is A Hokey, Sentimental Mess

“David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) is a middle-of-the-road author and journalist for Rolling Stone who undergoes the task of doing a feature on Infinite Jest author David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel) at the height of his popularity. Based on Lipsky’s book Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself, which detailed the five day encounter and was described as “…a road picture, a love story, a contest” by Maria Bustillos of The Awl, the film fails to capture that essence and, in effect, loses its footing.”

REVIEW: The Green Infern-Oh No!

“So does this film compare to what it seemed to try to be a companion piece to? No, not really. But on that same note, I feel I should also say I don’t feel Cannibal Holocaust is a good film either. It’s shocking and disturbing absolutely, but once you get past that what is there? Not much. But this isn’t a review of Cannibal, it’s a review of The Green Inferno. A film that had good ideas in it, but much like the small Timothy Green, it just couldn’t grow to it’s full potential, and that in my opinion hurts worse than it simply being a bad movie.”
