Scream 4 (2011)

There is much debate in the film community on whether the world needed a Scream 4 or not. The franchise had been nonexistent for 11 years until Wes Craven dusted off his knife collection and brought Ghostface back to life.  It is hard for me to remember which Scream movies I watched at the theatre, … More Scream 4 (2011)

Scream (1996)

I was only 14 years old when Scream was released. It seems like forever ago since this slasher flick has been spoofed thousand times over. It is quite a shame since this movie is credited with saving the horror genre as we knew it.  By the mid-1990s, horror movies were running on fumes. Famous slashers … More Scream (1996)

Saw VI (2009)

Saw IV (2007)

A new sheriff is running the game, but is Jigsaw really dead? No matter where we find ourselves in the overall story arc, John Kramer (Tobin Bell) is there. He’s the whisper in the wind, the straw that stirs the drink, and the man behind the most gruesome traps you could ever imagine.  It is … More Saw IV (2007)

Saw II (2005)

In my opinion, Saw II is where the franchise really took off and turned the series into a cultural phenomenon. The first film only introduced the world to the concept of “do you want to play a game,” whereas Saw II took the game concept to a whole new level.  Eight people are stranded in … More Saw II (2005)

Happy Gilmore (1996)

Caddyshack came out in 1980 and may be considered the best golf comedy in film history. However, that was a different generation’s comedy. My generation’s golf movie is, hands down, Happy Gilmore.  Adam Sandler was just launching his career as a superstar when he got sponsored by Subway and went on to win his first … More Happy Gilmore (1996)
