Toy Story 4 is what many critics and fans alike called unneeded, but wow did it hold up and become a great film and one of the best installments of the franchise yet! A film about parenthood, letting go, and the realization of life in itself and how we aren’t always exactly what we seem to be. I thought Toy Story 4 had great parts. Part horror and comedy, A character named Forky is introduced and is basically A Frankenstein like creation by God herself, Bonnie. The film also features many other horrific imagery such as Gabby- Gabby and the creepy ventriquist doll Vincent. The film is a must watch for Toy Story fanatics and lovers of film alike!
One of this year’s most real and terrifying films I saw all year. Krisha was a low budget film made in the director’s, Trey Edward Shults, house. Made for around 100,000 dollars, this March release was a traumatizing look into addition and the struggle of family and acceptance. The film is a horror film at its core. Krisha unravels more and more as she deals with her family she has worked so hard to push away. Krisha is streaming in Amazon now ! Check it out. 4/5
I saw Disney’s new Star Wars film the Force Awakens over the weekend. It did not disappoint. I had some reservations with Disney buying star wars a few years back, but now I see they are the perfect choice.
JJ Abrhams has made quite possibly the best film of 2015. Star wars was great in almost al aspects. We are introduced to new faces such as Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, and Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron. We also have returning faces like Harrison ford and Carrie Fisher.
The best parts of episode 7 are the fresh new faces. I loved how we are introduced to these new characters. We have new villains and new heros for the nest 3-5 years !
There are scenes where extreme emotion overwhelmed me and parts where i was cheering and gripping my arm rest in joy and excitement. My favorite characters were Ridley as Rey and Driver as Ren. Also Poe played by Isaac was a great suprise as was Domahall Gleeson as Hox.
Go see Star Wars The Force Awakens now!

Check out this weeks episode where we review the horror/comedy Tusk. It will scare you so bad you will never want to go back to Canada again !
Grave encounters is a B list horror flick about a group of ghost hunters who explore an abandoned sanitarium.
The film starts off with a producer saying that all the footage is not doctored this is real. Like all found footage flicks
The movie has a group TV show called grave encounters. They go to an insane asylum, it looks nothing will happen until shit hits the fan.
Grave encounters has some awesome ideas it just needs to execute them better. I love the parts where time is nonexistent and wings, doors, rooms, and areas of the building appear and disappear at will.
This actually reminds me of one of my favorite and most disturbing books I have ever read, House of leaves by, Mark Z Danielski.
Besides the few parts with a good spoke or creative scene in the film deserves a 4/10.
I have been inspired you could say to start back up an old hobby and one of my favorites to this day. Movies! I have been collecting DVDs since around 7th grade and have amassed a small library.
