Movie Review: Kill Order

by Jeff Fountainon November 22, 2017
The Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival 2017 Fast fists and fast-paced, Kill Order makes no bones about what it’s about right away and that is a very good thing. There is a plot, don’t get me wrong, but this movie is all about action, well-choreographed relentless action, that benefits greatly from casting stunt […]

Movie Review: Red Spring

by Jeff Fountainon November 21, 2017
The Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival 2017 How do you make a movie about a world ravaged by vampires interesting? The whole apocalypse/vampire genres have pretty much been done to death, so this presents quite the challenge.

The Walking Dead Review: Poor Dialogue and Missed Opportunities in ‘The Big Scary U’

by Jeff Fountainon November 20, 2017
*SPOILERS AHEAD* This is one of those incredibly frustrating episodes, you know the ones, where there was so much potential for something great and it was completely flushed down the toilet. With some of the dialogue that characters were forced to spew out this week, I’m now convinced the show is being run by a […]

The Flash Review: Common Sense Takes a Holiday in ‘When Harry Met Harry’

by Jeff Fountainon November 15, 2017
*SPOILERS AHEAD* I don’t usually do spoiler reviews for The Flash but this week’s episode contained enough questionable content that I decided it needed to be addressed head-on. Don’t get me wrong, there were some enjoyable moments but the show also went places that had me scratching my head and wondering what the hell they […]

The Walking Dead Review: Excitement and Tension are Back in ‘Some Guy’

by Jeff Fountainon November 14, 2017
It is amazing what some excellent writing, great acting, and solid direction will accomplish. After three lackluster episodes to ring in season eight, we finally had an episode full of drama, tension, and excitement with ‘Some Guy’. Even another long-winded speech from Ezekiel wasn’t enough to ruin the great overall feel of dread and tension […]

Movie Review: ‘Mayhem’ Takes Rage and Chaos to the Corporate Level

by Jeff Fountainon November 13, 2017
When you think about it, is there a better place to let loose some rage and bloodshed than in the corporate world? Sure, there are some normal people there but the cold-blooded attitude of big business does not usually lend itself to making too many friends. I’m sure there will be many people with a […]

Star Trek Discovery Review: ‘Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad’

by Jeff Fountainon October 30, 2017
I must admit I wasn’t that thrilled to hear that this week’s episode was going to involve a time loop. Star Trek has been using this as a storytelling device for a while now and it sounded too much like a throwaway episode to me. However, using Harry Mudd helped changed things up and we […]

This week in ‘The Damned’, the good guys on The Walking Dead continue their all-out assault on The Saviors and their ammunition reserves in a continuation of the planned out […]

by Jeff Fountainon October 29, 2017
Recently we had a chance to talk with writer/director Liam O’Donnell about life in the movie business and his new film Beyond Skyline. Did you always want to be a part of this crazy movie business or did you discover that interest later on? Liam: I think it’s a bit of both, to be honest. […]
