I didn’t love the last trailer for Dark Phoenix. It seemed busy for the sake of being busy. Shocking for the sake of being shocking. And it assumed everyone watching already knew what Jean Grey was about to go through when given this sinister new power. For me, it just didn’t work. If Fox had released this trailer, though, I would have been singing its praises. So now I’ll do just that. Read More >>

The Frighteners, Peter Jackson’s Precursor to Lord of The Rings, Still Scares And Surprises

With its bright white spine, The Frighteners called to me from my shelf of old DVDs. “Rewatch me,” it seemed to say. “People forget that I’m the movie that made The Lord of The Rings possible. I’m so much more than a VFX ghost story. Trust me. Bring me back to life.” So I did, and the alluring DVD did not tell a lie. Read More >>
