#PopcornReviews • Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) • The drug war on the U.S.-Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro. • I was a little disappointed with this sequel. I felt that it didn’t have a defined narrative and was a little all over the place. There were still some fantastic sequences that had you on the edge of your seat, so it was still worth the watch. • Rating: B+
Today's alternative minimalist poster is dedicated to Hannibal.
Fun Fact: Hugh Dancy actually recommended Mads Mikkelsen for the role of Hannibal Lecter, as the two actors had become friends during filming of King Arthur (2004). What poster from my feed, did you like the most? Comment here or DM me!

Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. Finally, a true sequel to one of my all-time favourite films. David Gordon Green has given this franchise a recalibration and corrected it back on course by erasing the horrifying memories of its previous predecessors. The legend and myth of psychotic serial killer has been stripped back creating a greater monstrosity of a man who just enjoys killing people without remorse. Green focuses on this murderous rampage from Michael’s perspective as we track him from door to door, victim to victim like a sadistic trick-or-treater. This film is not without its throwbacks to the original as Green pays homage to John Carpenter genre-defining classic. The remix of the original score is iconic in itself and adds to the sense of dread and tension like its original. Overall, Green has taken on a monumental task and has succeeded in creating a sequel worthy of being uttered in the same discussion as the original. Anchored by a superb performance by Jamie Lee Curtis as an older, damaged Laurie Strode suffering from PTSD and having plenty of time prepare with the demise of Michael Myers being her only focus in life. This is a great throwback to slasher films and with it being an 18 certificate only encourages delight as the body count rises.

CINEMA 10 📽🎬 - I was able to watch the last run of Double Twisting, Double Back at 9:20PM for Cinema1 Originals 2018 and I must say that the film gives a breath of fresh air when it comes to the plot of a story. Tackles the about battling your own demons (alcoholism, sex addiction, ambitions/idealism) and not just that, they successfully exposed the unfortunate condition of our sports training in which still giving us hope because we have the talents and skills to bag some medals in international campaigns if only be giving enough budget and facilities.
All actors gave superb acting, the veterans like Mon Confiado, Suzette Ranillo delivers the best... while Joem Bascon exceeds the expectations and @tony.labrusca's (Gerald Zion/Badger) acting is dope. 👏👏👏 To summarized it all... Itong movie na ito ay hindi banban. Congratulations to all the people behind the camera. Bravo!
You still have a chance to catch special screening of the film on the following dates:
October 22 (Monday) - UP Film Center - Cine Adarna at 2PM
October 23 (Tuesday) - UP Film Center - Cine Adarna at 7PM 📸 ctto
I know I’m late on this but ... WOOOOO! John Carpenter came to let people know that he is the king. Halloween is epic.. tried to see it again last night but it was sold old. Definitely going back. GO SEE IT!🎃🔪
Just time to post about film 21 in between my cinema visits. This #roadtohalloween was #hocuspocus which theme was #witches#comedy#allhallowseve . Very fun Disney film from 1993. It’s is silly, cheesy and knows how to have a good time doing it. Three stand out performers here are Thora Birch in a very early role, Sarah Jessica Parker who embraces her role with great joy and of course the standout being Bette Midler. Maybe a few moment might question for younger audiences like constant mentioning of virginity and a scene with the bus man with some not so subtle sexual references. 7.5/10 from me.
Countdown to Samhain: Day 21 🎃
This is one of my absolute favorite pieces in my collection. Dawn of the Dead is already one of my all time favorite horror films, so having all the different cuts and Ken freakin Foree’s autograph on it is just too sweet. Scroll over to see a pic of me and Ken meeting and boy, I must say, he looks damn happy to see me.
Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare - And to your right folks is the dumbest Nightmare on Elm Street sequel of the bunch on this tour guide. You see some idiots in suits thought “Hey let’s make Freddy Krueger a Looney Tunes villain, yeah? Brilliant! And lets give him a backstory that delivers a human element to juxtapose his cartoon persona? Also brilliant! And lets make a movie that’s awesomely anticlimactic that leaves the fans thinking ‘Really, this is the grand finale?’ Triple brilliant!!!” Hey Rachel Talalay at least directed a memorable film for herself on what not to do for her future projects. She also gave audiences a good idea on how to jack up a strong franchise on your first directorial debut, awesome job Rachel!!! One redeeming factor about this motion picture is how one of the characters leads viewers down the wrong path of what to expect and by result has them not to trust the narrative story arc. And that’s about it for any positive takeaways of this disappointing finale. Thankfully Wes Craven noticed this abomination on one of his beloved creations and came back on the next installment to redeem the series. Thank you Wes!!! ☠️ #moviereview#horrormovies#movie#freddykrueger#anightmareonelmstreet#moviebuff#thereelestreviews#garbage
HALLOWEEN - Horror | Thriller 1️⃣8️⃣
It’s 40 years since Michael Myers went on a rampage and now he’s escaped and back on the streets.
I’ve been harsh here but it’s mainly down to the sheer unexceptionalness (if that’s even a word) of the latest Halloween entry. Michael Myers as a feared fictional character is iconic, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, but after numerous entries into the series it would have been nice to see something slightly different. You go in knowing what to expect and you get exactly that. It does slasher horror well but it just doesn’t fill you up...
Some of the old guard resurface, Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role as the tortured Laurie Strode. She is great and seeing her face up to Myers again is a highlight. The rest of the cast are serviceable but forgettable.
I’d say Halloween has always been more for gore fans than scare fans, as menacing as Myers is he isn’t that out and out scary. That’s where this entry falls flat, it all feels a little mindless and empty, the deaths aren’t very extreme, the violence is so so and the only creepy bit is the classic Halloween theme accompanying the action.
I wanted Halloween to be far better than it was. I think that’s why I was left disappointed, it felt like a cheap cash in on a tired franchise that happens to work with the season it’s released.
Child’s Play: After recently rewatching Child’s Play for the first time in years, it left us feeling...well..kind of old. It’s hard to gauge horror movies because of the effect they had on you were a kid, compared to watching them as an adult. We know this movie had a major impact on the horror genre, but nowadays it felt pretty tame in comparison. The movie spawned some clones...(Dolly Dearest is a prime example), and you can even see the impact on current films such as Annabelle. If It were 1988 and we were watching this for the first time, we’d probably rate this pretty high, but in current times, and being somewhat desensitized to horror...we’re somewhere in the middle of the pack. It still rates higher than the sequels, and we thought Curse of Chucky was pretty good for what it was, also...the Child’s Play 2 conveyor belt scene is nails! ☠️☠️☠️ #childsplay#horror#horrormovies#moviereview#moviereview#movie#childsplay#moviebuff#chucky
Here’s @jeremy_perez’s review for Halloween (2018):
#Halloween is the (reboot) sequel to the first Halloween movie from 1978. In Halloween 2018, we meet Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and The Shape/Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney/Nick Castle) 40 years after the events of the original Halloween night. The beginning does lay some interesting ground work but can be a bit boring at times, due to some generic character types and generic dialogue. The boring characters are throughout the film but we’re more present towards the beginning. Another con would be some editing choices, but they’re minor for most people. On the bright side of this dark tale, Laurie Strode was a badass grandma that was brought to life extremely well. Michael Myers is as creepy and intense as he was in the first film. The final act was another high point of this film. I haven’t heard a theater crowd go this crazy since Infinity War. Most of the killings were creative to say the least, and might be too gory for some people to handle. There is also this little kid, Julian (Jibrail Nantambu), he stole the film, once you seen him, you will not be able to forget him. Overall I really enjoyed this film, and it was a fun time with the communal theater experience. I give Halloween an 8.3/10. If you’re looking for a good time to spend spooky season, this is a great choice.
