Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

What a lovely film.  What a joy.  What a relief to see a Pinocchio film done right in 2022. Having my stomach still churning from Disney’s absurd live-action remake a few months ago, I must admit that I did not step into Guillermo del Toro’s new version with a lot of hope.  This story has […]

Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power (2022)

Nobody two people ever really see the same movie, despite looking at exactly the same images.  It is the fascinating mystery of the cinema’s effect on the human brain.  Our noggins are so wired into expectation but never-the-less we are all separated by experience.  We see what we want to see, and no one ever […]

DC League of Super-Pets (2022)

DC League of Super-Pets gets by on a lot of cuteness.  It is adorable, and funny in a laid-back sort of way that puts a smile on your face.  And, y’know, given the morbid tone of its concurrent DC output, they could use it.  I just reviewed Black Adam a few days ago and found to […]

Jaws III (formerly Jaws 3D) | The Pod Bay Doors Movie Podcast, Episode #246

This episode, Jerry and Doug wrap up Turkey Month (finally) with a franchise they’ve visited before, once with reverence, once with contempt and now once with…more contempt. It’s Jaws 3(D)! No, it isn’t a half-assed attempt at making Jaws into something like Pirrahana 3DD, rather they made a half-assed attempt at remaking Jaws (and Jaws […]

Gods of Egypt (2016) | The Pod Bay Doors Movie Podcast, Episode #245

With our third installment in Turkey Month ’22, Doug has chosen what may actually be a movie turduckin, it is that bad. Gods of Egypt from 2016 by Alex Proyas, a once-visionary director whose vision has become a little cloudy and blurred, is bad on levels unheard of and is a big, bright, shining example […]
