‘Requiem of Solace’: Finding Comfort in Mourning

The flick of a page, the dimming of the lights, the flowing sway of the choir. That, on its own level, was mesmerizing. When the words suddenly breached my mind, and invested it with verses of death and life, I knew I was trapped. My sporadic thoughts of what it all meant were suddenly hushed, […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Belko Experiment’ is gruesomely dull

I’ve probably told this story before, but there was a time that I hated the “Hunger Games” series. In high school, I had quite a predilection for the 2000 Kenji Fukusaku Japanese epic “Battle Royale,” which shares quite a few similarities between each other. Both films (and their literary predecessors) revolve around an oppressive national […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Kong: Skull Island’ is an exciting look into the Legendary Monsterverse

I remember when Peter Jackson’s “King Kong” hit theaters in 2005, even though I was too afraid to buckle down and actually see it, on account that the islanders depicted in the film scared the crap out of me. Still, even when I did see it, Jackson’s three-hour epic was a sight to behold, with […]
