Movie Review – ‘An American Pickle’ gives two Seth Rogen’s for the price of one

In Movie Reviews, Streaming Releases by Mark EatonLeave a Comment

Doublemint Gum’s jingle used to tout “Double your pleasure, double your fun,” but is the same true when you duplicate Seth Rogen?! Are two Seth Rogen’s too much?! Heck, for many, even just one Seth Rogen is more than they can handle, but kudos for his dual leading performances in An American Pickle where he stars as Herschel, a man who stumbles into a vat of pickle brine where he remains trapped (and preserved) for 100 years, and Ben, his struggling app developer great-grandson. Is the premise ridiculous? For sure. Far fetched and defying logic? Indeed. Still worth streaming? Yessir!

Movie Review – ‘Impetigore’ is why we love Asian Horror

In Movie Reviews, Reviews, Streaming Releases by MontiLee StormerLeave a Comment

Impetigore (2019) is streaming exclusively on Shudder, and is unrated, but if I had to guess, I’d say definitely rated R for swears, people being shot, people getting sliced with swords, people getting cracked on the head, people getting stabbed, people being hung, skinless people – oh! and the end, which is so marvelously out of left field I was cheering.

Movie Review – ‘The Beach House’ catches you sleeping at high tide on Shudder

In Movie Reviews, Reviews, Streaming Releases by MontiLee StormerLeave a Comment

The Beach House (2019) is not-rated, but if I had to guess I’d say PG-13 for swears, brief side boob, trippy drug use, deeply unsettling transformations, worms in feet, car crashes, and a movie that feels like the well-loved bastard child of The Fog (1980) and The Mist (2007). The Beach House is streaming exclusively on Shudder July 9, 2020

Movie Review – Apple TV+’s explosive ‘Greyhound’ needs a big screen

In Movie Reviews, Reviews, Streaming Releases by Chris GirouxLeave a Comment

Greyhound, based upon the novel ‘The Good Shepherd’ by C. S. Forester, is inspired by the real-life command of Captain Ernest Krause (played by Tom Hanks). The text richly defines the naval experience, so it’s no wonder Apple, the self-proclaimed “home of today’s most imaginative storytellers,” jumped at the opportunity to include the adaptation in their library. But the movie needs explosive technology and the big screen experience to immerse the audience fully.
