A Ghost Story

This is part of Fantasy and Sci-Fi Week at Gorgon Reviews! 2017 has been a great year for alternative thrillers and horrors. From Split, to Get Out, to It Comes At Night, to even Colossal on some levels, a lot of fucked up shit is happening this year in movies, and we get to watch …

The Shack

This is part of Fantasy and Sci-Fi Week at Gorgon Reviews! Another film to come out in March that I missed, due to the extreme circumstances of birthday nonsense that incorporates that month of my life, when I first saw the trailer for The Shack, I didn’t realize it was a religious film. Yes, even …

The Journey

Think about a movie called The Journey. What sort of genre would you think that movie is? Well, first, I know I would think of maybe…adventure? Yeah. Adventure. If not an adventure film, maybe a war/action movie. If not a war/action movie, then something spiritual, a religious film. If you thought historical drama, I would …

Okja

I didn’t know a whole lot about Okja going in, but I did see a few posters and just knew, just knew, I had to see it. Like, as soon as possible. I also definitely thought it was a horror film, a foreign South Korean horror film. About a beast? I don’t know, the name …

Baby Driver

At the time of writing this introduction, Baby Driver was listed on Wikipedia as a British-American action crime comedy jukebox musical film, and when I first read that my heart skipped several beats. I am now dead. [Editor’s note: I have gotten better, and the Wikipedia article has since been shortened.] Those genre’s together just …

Paterson

Paterson is a film that came out in 2016, near the end, a limited drama, that I totally missed. A few of my friends put it on their best of the year list. And I totally missed it. I feel so ashamed. Ashamed specifically because it played in my city in advance with the director …

War For The Planet of the Apes

The “of the Planet of the Apes” films have been met with some pretty critical acclaim in the last few years, especially after the rebooted Planet of the Apes film was so dismal. And hey, for Rise? I totally agree. An amazing film, great acting and a plot that made me cheer for Apes instead …

The Last Word

The Last Word has a relatively pretty poster to look at. It conjures up specific colors, radio, and of course music. But at the same time, it makes me think of the SNL sketch for Schweddy Balls, poking fun of NPR level talk radio. It also makes me think of The L Word, which is …

Shimmer Lake

Studies have shown that reviews that feature “Lake” in the title end up being better than expected when writing said review. Of course, my only review before this was the movie Flakes, which was, I admit, better than I imagined it would be. It was quirky, off beat. Shimmer Lake, it has plenty of quirky …

The Space Between Us

When did The Space Between Us come out? Shit, I don’t remember. This year maybe, or last year and I am super far behind. [Editor’s Note: It was this year! First week in February, I am not super far behind!] I think I received an invite to this one, but a better looking movie was …
