"Bloodthirsty" (2021) Review: A Mostly Were-Worthless Werewolf Film

This a horror movie that only teases werewolf carnage and transformations. However, "Bloodthirsty" is way more meaningful than it has any right to be. Especially for a horror film.

Should I Watch..? 'Godzilla' (2014)

Given that arguably Japan's biggest cinematic export is mixing it up with King Kong, Benjamin Cox decided to re-examine the big lad's journey on his recent foray into western cinema. Nobody mention the 1998 version, ok?

Carey Mulligan delivers a career defining performance in a tragic film disguised as a comedy in which she seeks to avenge those that raped her friend. It is also a strong directing and writing debut for Emerald Fennell.

This was a non-spoiler review of "Godzilla" starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Bryan Cranston, and more!

apocalypse-now-a-journey-to-the-violent-self

"Apocalypse Now": A Journey to the Violent Self

Reviewing one of my favorite (war) films of all time is difficult. It's a real journey within. Reserve 3-4 hours alone time, close the curtains and of you go into the Heart of Darkness.

captain-america-and-black-panther-how-two-iconic-characters-lose-and-regain-their-faith

Captain America and Black Panther: How Two Iconic Characters Lose and Regain Their Faith

Captain America and Black Panther are two fan favorite characters in the MCU. Their strong convictions and morality are inspirational and much of this comes from their upbringing. As the films progress though, this is turned upside down.

should-i-watch-the-chronicles-of-riddick

Should I Watch..? 'The Chronicles of Riddick'

Vin Diesel's second favourite character, if film franchise entries are anything to go by, returns for a bloated and uninspired sci-fi epic that fails to improve on the character's humble origins. Benjamin Cox sets phasers to kill for this one.

godzilla-vs-kong-does-epic-equal-good

'Godzilla vs. Kong' - Does Epic Equal Good?

This is a review of the fourth film in Legendary's MonsterVerse, "Godzilla vs. Kong." While definitely epic, does the film's many human aspects ruin the film entirely?

Self-Awareness in Progressive Ideologies: How "Black Panther" Handles Just Causes With Self-Examination

Many movements seem to me so caught up in their emotions that it's getting to the point to where it's starting to harm their causes. 2018's "Black Panther" has a scene that I believe applies to today's progressive movements as both a foreshadowing and a warning.

Should I Watch..? 'House of Flying Daggers'

Should I Watch..? 'Bewitched' (2005)

Should I Watch..? 'The Wizard of Oz' (1939)

Some films just need no introduction. Benjamin Cox looks back at a much loved classic to examine why no other film version can hold a candle to this one. If only he had a brain...

Should I Watch..? 'Birds of Prey' (2020)

Salvaging her role from the disappointing 'Suicide Squad', Margot Robbie brings us the anarchic and disturbed Harley Quinn back for a second go. And once again, she isn't alone. Benjamin Cox goes back to Gotham to investigate.

"Tom & Jerry" (2021): A Passable yet Improved Feat of the Hanna-Barbera Duo

"Tom & Jerry" is a 2021 live-action/animated hybrid film based on the Hanna-Barbera characters of the same name. While it pays respect to the source material with inventive animation and decent laughs, it falls standard with an unoriginal story, basic characters and questionable direction.

should-i-watch-congo

Should I Watch..? 'Congo'

A film from the mind of Michael Crichton and using the same effects team as 'Jurassic Park' should be a recipe for success, right? Alas, this jungle romp fails to entertain in the way it intended. Benjamin Cox tries not to laugh too hard.
