Vampires, Santa and Aubrey Plaza. Let’s say a prayer for peace. Violent Night Maybe it’s just because I was expecting this to be terrible, but I had an honest to goodness great time with Violent Night, a seriously fun Die Hard riff where Santa is John McClane and The Pest is Hans Gruber. The reasonContinue reading “2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Violent Night / Interview with the Vampire / Emily the Criminal”
2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever / The Fabelmans / The Menu / Atlanta / Bones and All / Chucky / Causeway / Resurrection
Lotsa offerings this Thanksgiving weekend. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever The road to catastrophe is paved with the best intentions, and while I don’t think Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is exactly a catastrophe, it certainly struggles as a Marvel movie. It begins with a literal funeral for T’Challa and a metaphorical one for Chadwick Boseman. TheseContinue reading “2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever / The Fabelmans / The Menu / Atlanta / Bones and All / Chucky / Causeway / Resurrection”
2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Aftersun / Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities / Armageddon Time / Weird: The Al Yankovic Story
A good one, two mediocre ones and a near masterpiece. Aftersun A wonderfully emotional and cerebral experience that stands as one of the most unique things I’ve seen all year. Scottish first-time filmmaker Charlotte Wells has gifted us a film with the ability to hook its claws into us so subtly that we don’t evenContinue reading “2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Aftersun / Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities / Armageddon Time / Weird: The Al Yankovic Story”
Two of the best films of the year. And funniest. The Banshees of Inisherin Celebrated playwright turned filmmaker Martin McDonagh has made his smallest film yet with The Banshees of Inershin, a darkly acidic comedy surrounding an elaborately sad friendship breakup on a tiny Irish island, 100 years ago. Imagine if your entire life tookContinue reading “2022 Movie Reviews: The Banshees of Inisherin & Decision to Leave”
Every month on Margetis Movie Reviews, I’m going to choose a different filmmaker I admire and map out what I think is their Top 10 Filmography. This list is going to be highly subjective to my tastes so I’d love to hear your opinions as well. Since this is the month of the Great Pumpkin,Continue reading “Filmmaker’s Top 10: John Carpenter”
An unlikely MVP this week, but even that isn’t particularly great. Werewolf by Night Werewolf by Night is basically a beautiful Cadillac with no engine in it. Based on a Marvel comic or property or some sort, don’t know, don’t care, Werewolf by Night, a 53-minute “TV Special” is gorgeously crafted from a technical perspectiveContinue reading “2022 Horror Movie & TV Reviews: Werewolf by Night / 28 Days Haunted / V/H/S/99”
In 2003, Michael Bay released a weak-ass remake of one of the best and most iconic horror films ever made, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Although it had the personality of a fucking Lowe’s commercial, it was wildly successful and ignited an awful trend of making lackluster remakes to horror classics of the 70s andContinue reading “Early 2000s Horror Remakes w/ Danny Gurrola”
Everything is frightening this week, but for different reasons. Halloween Ends The most disheartening thing about how shitty this modern Halloween trilogy is the fact it was the brainchild of Danny McBride and David Gordon Green, two legitimate comedic geniuses who clearly have no idea what they’re doing in the horror genre. Their work onContinue reading “2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Halloween Ends / TÁR / The Midnight Club / Deadstream / Orphan: First Kill”
One of the most disjointed horror franchises of all time, featuring no less than three alternate timelines and two re-imaginings. The so-called final chapter, Halloween Ends, just came out so I decided to do a re-ranking of this series. 13. Halloween: Resurrection (2002) directed by: Rick Rosenthal; written by: Larry Brand & Sean Hood starring:Continue reading “HALLOWEEN FRANCHISE: RANKED”
