    Dawn of the Dead

    When there is no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.

    This is hands down the best zombie apocalypse movie of all time.

    One of the movies that made me who I am today. I snuck out to watch this masterpiece with my buddy when I was 14 for a midnight showing way back in 1980. Riding my bike back home at 3am was probably the scariest experience of my life.

    It's not as timeless as others…

    The love triangle between Eowyn, Aragorn and Arwen was always the weakest part of the movie trilogy for me. I've read that this was embellished more in the movies than the books. Her love for Aragorn was always doomed, and it relegated her to a stereotypical "damsel in distress." So when Eowyn, struggling in her bulky ill-fitting armor, takes on the Witch King, that was…

    Leatherface has not aged well. I clearly had unrealistically high expectations for this, mostly given Fede Alvarez was attached as writer/producer. His Evil Dead remake is one of my all-time favorite horror movies, and I really enjoyed Don't Breathe. But Don't Breath 2 was a step down for him (and frequent co-writer/collaborator Rodo Sayagues) and this was a step off a cliff.

    I can forgive a lot of sins in a horror movie -- I had a gas with Halloween…

    Don't let my relatively low rating for this fool you -- this is a classic and a trailblazer for the giallo genre. I just am not a big fan of pre-70's movies. I rate movies based on my enjoyment which leads to higher scores for so-so/heavily flawed movies (i.e.,Matrix Resurrections, Halloween Kills) and lower scores for near masterpieces.

    I found myself laughing out loud at a few of the scenes that epitomized the early 60's -- a police inspector finds…

    ""There's only so many PG-13 movies I can make before I get bored," says the filmmaker.

    Thank you James Wan for saying out loud what all mother-loving horror fans are thinking every time a scene cuts away from gore or a kill in a PG-13 horror movie.

    And then there's the choice quote from Wan the Man: " "You can take the boy out of horror, but you can never take the horror out [of] the boy."

    Watching Chris Pratt's character get rejected for a job made my day having myself just recently come out of nine months of unemployment hell.

    The Tomorrow War is completely derivative of Edge of Tomorrow, or Live Die Repeat, or ... what the hell is it called again?!?! The one with aliens and time travel! Starring "everyman doofus" Chris Pratt as Tom Cruise and Yvonne Strahovsk (The Handmaid's Tale) as Emily Blunt.

    And throw in a dash of Starship Troopers and…
