Awful

Underworld: Blood Wars [2016] ★½

I don’t know what Underworld purists (if any) would make of this fifth (and hopefully last) installment, but personally, I couldn’t wait for it to end. And when it was finally over, I breathed a sigh of relief. “Blood Wars”, once again starring Kate Beckinsale as the vampire […]

Blair Witch [2016] ★½

Originally promoted as “The Woods”, the people behind this piece of shit of a movie later on revealed the “shocking” news: this  was indeed a sequel to the surprise hit “The Blair Witch Project”. Clever stunt. I just wish the movie itself lived up to its hype. In […]

Independence Day: Resurgence [2016] ★½

 “We always knew they’d be back” they said. And I always knew it would suck. Let’s face it: what clicked in the mid 1990’s clearly doesn’t anymore. Following the first movie’s huge success (and believe me, it was), director Roland Emmerich went on to direct several “end of times” […]

Manhattan Night [2016] ★½
