Sometimes we come across a movie we felt something the first time we watch, but on second viewing a few years later, we find that our opinion changes. Movies we didn't like sometimes get a second chance to impress us.
Often, they don't... but sometimes, they do.

First up, how about that teaser for Netflix and Marvel's The Punisher that debuted at the tail end of The Defenders?

In one corner, the Ryan Reynolds/Jake Gyllenhaal/Rebecca Ferguson flick Life. In the other, the Alien/Prometheus prequel/sequel Alien: Covenant.

Now we've got a creepy as fuck Finnish horror flick that uses these murders as a springboard for an off-the-walls horror flick that deserves to be ranked among the best of the genre.
Me? I have a hard time getting emotionally engaged in a story that's presented as a cartoon. Loved 'em as a kid, but not so much in the last 25 years or so. Cartoons leave me cold.
However, that might be about to change.

Which kinda makes sense, because as an adult, there's something unsettling about the canned, cheery music and a grown man luring children to his vehicle with the promise of tasty treats.

Mike S back with another animated review! This time, in honor of the late, great Adam West, I'm going to be discussing DC's 2016 release, "Batman: The Return of the Caped Crusaders"!
When DC relaunched their comics under the banner of "The New 52", they produced a few series that weren't part of the new continuity. One of them was "Batman '66"- which was based on the old 1960's Batman TV series starring Adam West (as Batman/Bruce Wayne), and Burt Ward (as Robin/Dick Grayson). If you get the chance- check out a few of the issues, they're quite fun and really encapsulated the spirit of the show.

But sometimes . . . just sometimes . . . a sequel to a crap horror movie can exceed the original in every way. Or, as has been the case recently, a prequel.

First off, I'm convinced lamestream film critics and the general movie audiences are a bunch of idiots. How did Guy Ritchie's take on the King Arthur legend only gross $140 million worldwide and run a deficit. That's just stupid to me!
And hey, if you can't kill Elmo, you might as well have him whack a bunch of people in an indie horror movie!
Produced by former Basement guest and constant Scream Queen Jessica Cameron, Puppet Killer is about a group of six friends stalked by a killer who's obsessed with horror movie icons during Christmas vacation.

Hands down the most famous Man-in-Suit monster is Godzilla. And on Monday, the guy who played him in 12 films -- from the original Godzilla in 1954 to Godzilla Vs. Gigan in 1972 -- passed away.
Haruo Nakajima died at age 88.

Which brings me to this list. These are the top five Canadian Television shows I think deserve a reboot or a movie!
Fortunately, the film has developed a cult following. This is largely due, I would assume, to Karl Urban's spot on portrayal of Judge Dredd. And all the cool action.

What's Amy been up to and what does she have to say? Stick with us!

Not that Tracey, who like the movie's director, Neil Johnson, hasn't been in the business for years. But we learned today that their movie Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter -- which we discussed with them on the show last season -- has had a successful theatrical run and is heading home via VOD.

However, it's still an interesting premise for a horror film. I mean, TV crew explores alleged creepy incident, alleged creepy incident turns out to be real, cue the screaming.

We live in an age where comic books are a major source of television and cinematic entertainment.
In light of this, I would like to submit my "Top Four List of Graphic Novels to Adapt" For this list, I'm going to focus on stand-alone stories that have no connections to mainstream comic book series (ie- no Batman story arc, no Marvel "What If?" stories, etc).
Now he's taken John Douglas's fantastic true-crime book, Mindhunter, and brought it to the small screen via Netflix, who Shawn and I have pimped so much lately we should be getting royalties.
"Admit it: that was cool as fuck." Star Marc Natoli says that line about half way through the action short The Proposal, and t...
