Movie Review: Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

There is a concern among (movie) critics: big movie studios have been producing, shooting and releasing more and more mediocre movies. More often than not these movies are reboots (of reboots), re-iterations, (bad) sequels or (worse) prequels of what is/was considered to have been a good movie way back when. Though some of these reboots […]

Movie Review: The Nice Guys (2016)

Who didn’t love the action movies from the late 80’s? I know I did and fortunately I had parents who gave fuck all about R ratings because I was way too young to watch most of the shit I watched back then. Lethal Weapon immediately comes to mind. Though maybe my pubescent mind might not […]
