Review: DON’T BREATHE 2 Doesn’t Justify Its Existence

Stephen Lang stars in Screen Gems DON'T BREATHE 2.

Don’t Breathe 2 is an unpredictable sequel that fails to justify why it was necessary to be made. The story of home invaders biting off more than they could handle was a surprise hit in 2016. Its conclusion left room for a potential follow-up, but Don’t Breathe 2 isn’t the continuation many fans of the original would… Continue reading Review: DON’T BREATHE 2 Doesn’t Justify Its Existence

Review: ESCAPE ROOM: TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS Fails To Retain Championship

Zoey Davis (Taylor Russell), Ben Miller (Logan Miller), Rachel (Holland Roden), Brianna (Indya Moore) and Nathan (Thomas Cocquerel) in ESCAPE ROOM: TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS.

Escape Room: Tournament of Champions struggles to provide a tournament worth competing in. The original film was a subpar outing at best with a unique concept that blended the Saw and Final Destination franchises into one. Unlike its predecessor, Escape Room: Tournament of Champions opts for a more implausible narrative anchored by a new set of paper-thin protagonists.… Continue reading Review: ESCAPE ROOM: TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS Fails To Retain Championship

Review: The Last Vermeer Offers Disposable Court Drama

The Last Vermeer is impressive visually, but rather dull for most of its runtime before delivering a solid third act. The film is not atrocious by any means but just seemed to lack a reason for anyone watching to care. Period dramas have a list of classics to offer, but The Last Vermeer will not be joining that… Continue reading Review: The Last Vermeer Offers Disposable Court Drama

Review: THE CRAFT: LEGACY Offers Jumbled Witchcraft

The Craft: Legacy proves early on that it should have been a reboot instead of this convoluted mess. It offers hollow characters intertwined with a script that abandons the appeal of the original. In 1996, the coven was strong and had a purpose, but today it’s watered down and cashing in on nostalgia alone. The Craft: Legacy is… Continue reading Review: THE CRAFT: LEGACY Offers Jumbled Witchcraft
