Timecop – Quickie Review

If there was ever a movie that could benefit from a remake, it’s this one. That being said, this film is still campy fun. The story and concept is very intriguing, but in better hands and a more capable lead, it could really excel. Some of the dialogue is very wooden with a performance from …

Easily one of my favourite horror films. I once recommended this movie to an employee who was looking for a scary movie and the next day she got mad at me because she “didn’t want something that scary.” One of John Carpenter’s best.

Forrest Gump – Quickie Review

Don’t get me started on how much I hate this movie. How did this movie beat out both Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption for Best Picture at the Academy Awards?
