Toronto After Dark 2012: Grabbers

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 No Comments

Save the town from the alien hoards by getting drunk. Yes,Grabbers has all the qualities of a standard monster movie, but it’s the comedy that makes it unique. Who knew you could be drunk to save the world?  The filmmakers effectively combined scares while still making you laugh.  I didn’t know if I should scream […]

Cowboys & Aliens

I was hoping that Cowboys & Aliens was going to be a Western timepiece where we’d see how people of that time and skill set would handle aliens. And with some smart writing, it could’ve been an interesting, fun, and clever movie. Instead we got an over-complicated mess that kept piling plot points on top […]

That’s where the characters in Monsters find themselves, trying to traverse the infected area to get to the States from Central America. And they travel, and travel, and […]

I’ve never seen any of the Alien movies, but upon receiving the 6-disc Alien Anthology, I was immediately struck by its impressive case design. After marveling at it, I sat down to watch the movies, which, astoundingly, include both the theatrical releases and special editions. Now then: Alien– Very impressive for being over 30 years […]

District 9

District 9 is one of the best science fiction films released in years. I went in expecting to see a science fiction conspiracy theory story, in which a government is secretly turning its citizens into “aliens” for experimentation, but was quite pleasantly surprised. The film has a far better, deeper and more meaningful story, and […]
