Movie Review: “Caught” is a Home Invasion Movie with a Creepy Twist

by Jeff Fountainon April 5, 2017
To be honest, home invasion movies have become rather pedestrian in the last few years, with a few critical and commercial hits spawning far too many inferior copies. However, every now and again a movie breaks out of the regular mold and gives us something a little different, and that’s exactly what happened with “Caught”. […]

The Walking Dead Review: Finally, War is here in “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life”

by Jeff Fountainon April 3, 2017
After a messy first eight episodes, followed by eight more building to the war with the Saviors, season seven felt like it really lost its way. Sure, the first episode was explosive (sorry) and last night’s finale was good fun, but they were like book ends on a season that had too many episodes that […]


Movie Review: “Brackenmore” Is More Than Just a Pretty Picture

by Jeff Fountainon April 2, 2017
It can be very tricky making a movie that has the slow burn approach to storytelling. You have to keep the audience interested while at the same have a great payoff in the end that has them satisfied as they walk out of the theater. I’m happy to say that minus a few missteps, “Brackenmore” […]

Movie Review: “The Heretics” is a Celebration of Different Shades of Dread

by Jeff Fountainon March 24, 2017
At first glance, you might want to dismiss the whole idea behind ‘The Heretics’ as simply something you’ve seen too many times before. You know, a cult kidnaps a woman to sacrifice her to their god, bad things ensue. However, this movie is much more than that. It is creepy, disgusting with some great scares […]

The Walking Dead Review: Agonizing Crawl to the Finish Line in “The Other Side”

by Jeff Fountainon March 19, 2017
After the first eight episodes of the season, which for the most part was a mess, I was really hoping that the writers had something special in store for us when the show came back from its winter break. I didn’t need one of ‘those’ episodes either, where they try and shock us with a […]

The Walking Dead Review: Morgan Pushed to the Brink in “Bury My Here”

by Jeff Fountainon March 13, 2017
While I can appreciate an episode where Morgan is front and center, and make no mistake he does a great job this week, the episode itself had far too many head scratching moments to be able to call it a success. I understand the writers have to get all the pieces in place to prepare […]


The Walking Dead Review: Rick and Michonne Go to the Carnival in “Say Yes”

by Jeff Fountainon March 5, 2017
As much as I’ve enjoyed the slow build up since The Walking Dead has returned, I think they might have pushed that a little too far this week. In “Say Yes” we learn how close Rick and Michonne really are and how they see the future of their group and the upcoming war with the […]

The Walking Dead Review: Death, Cowardice and Pickles in “Hostiles and Calamities”

by Jeff Fountainon February 27, 2017
In the beginning, this had all the trademarks of one of those filler/throwaway episodes TV shows do in between big story arcs and building to the end of the season. However on closer inspection, focusing on Dwight and Eugene in this week’s episode turned out to be a pretty good idea. We got a better […]


Movie Review: Bloodrunners

by Jeff Fountainon February 25, 2017
It must be tough these days trying to make a vampire movie that stands out from the crowd. I mean, the topic of bloodsuckers has been reimagined and rebooted from almost every conceivable angle. With that being said, I am always on the lookout for a different take on the vampire genre and to an […]

The Walking Dead Review: Campy, Trashy Fun in “New Best Friends”

by Jeff Fountainon February 20, 2017
After last week’s long winded mid-season return, it was great to see The Walking Dead embrace some weird and wonderful zombie fun, bring some real emotion and introduce us to group that was very different and strange in more ways than one. “New Best Friends” felt more like the episode we should have had last […]
