Review: CULT OF CHUCKY (2017)

Well, today's the day...Cult of Chucky has hit DVD, Blu-ray and VOD.  And guess what?  I've seen it!  I've had Cult pre-ordered for almost three months now, and I was super stoked to finally receive it.  Now let's get past all this fluff and jump right into it...

*Minor spoilers!

The film opens up with Andy (Alex Vincent) on a date with a girl who is questioning his love of guns.  Of course, Any denies a "love" for them and insists they're only for protection.  He also correctly presumes that the girl has already Googled him and knows about his past.

I loved Curse of Chucky and especially Andy's cameo at the end, so it's really nice to his character brought back and expanded on in this seventh installment.

Back at his place, we see that Andy still has Chucky's severed shotgun-blasted head, which he tortures periodically.  There's also a few cool throwbacks to the previous films hanging around Andy's place (like a framed Kent Military A…

Review: LEATHERFACE (2017)

I sat down yesterday and watched Leatherface, the prequel to 1974's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and 2013's Texas Chainsaw 3D.  I had heard a lot of mixed reactions for Leatherface on social media, mostly tipping the negative side of the scale.

Despite retconning the entire series and muddying up the timeline, I am a fan of Texas Chainsaw 3D -- so, yeah, I was a little bummed out when I found it this new one was a prequel to the '74 classic.

I had medium-to-high hopes, though, because the director duo previously made a fantastic and tension-heavy film with Inside.

And, well, here was my initial tweet regarding my first thoughts...

I’m 4 minutes and 48 seconds into Leatherface (2017) and, man, this is a bad movie. — Nick Meece (@nickmeece) September 26, 2017
Yeah, the opening was that bad.  However, the film did manage to get a little better.

A little.

In what I can only argue is a completely pointless and unnecessary film and adds absolutely nothing to the mythology of th…


Today's sequel is a real...something.  Sometimes there are movies that absolutely don't warrant a sequel, and if they were to get one, it certainly shouldn't be a spinoff.  Ugh.  This is 2002's American Psycho II: All American Girl.

Rachael Newman has developed an interest for murders after she encountered psychopath Patrick Bateman. To further study the subject, she enrolls at the university department for Behavioural and Social Sciences, under the expert leadership of former FBI agent Robert Starkman. Very certain about herself, Rachael has one single goal: to become class assistant. It's a prestigious job as having that position will almost guarantee employment at the FBI. But becoming class assistant is no easy task to accomplish, as the first trouble arises when secretary Gerty Fleck decides she is too young for it. And Gerty Fleck won't be the only obstacle.

My thoughts:
I never was on board with this sequel.  But, ugh, …

Trevorrow Not Directing STAR WARS EPISODE IX

In what some would call a shocker, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow, who was attached to direct and co-write Star Wars Episode IX, has departed from the project.  Word has it that his vision didn't quite line up with what Disney and Lucasfilm had in mind.

The best guess as of right now is that Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi director) could be a logical substitute.

Gavin O'Connor To Write/Direct SUICIDE SQUAD 2

After a slew of hopefuls, Gavin O'Connor has been chosen to write and direct Suicide Squad 2.

From Variety:
Gavin O’Connor is on board to write the sequel to “Suicide Squad,” and is also in talks to direct the film that stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto.

The movie is a top priority at Warner Bros. and looks to be one of the two DC properties (the other being New Line’s “Shazam!”) to begin production next year. Given the ensemble’s busy schedule, the shoot wasn’t expected to start until fall of 2018. So while there’s still time, the studio is eager to get someone on board to pen a script.Suicide Squad 2 will most likely hit sometime in 2019.
