Tanner Reviews Snowpiercer

Snowpiercer_posterOh this movie… It has been a while since I have seen a movie that has given me such strong opinions. I have to thank Netflix for bringing this gem to my eyes. I’m browsing through it and all the sudden I see a movie starring Chris Evans about the post apocalyptic world where all of society has now been reduced to people riding on a single train, through the frozen tundra, across the entire Earth… Holy hell this is something that I have to watch. So I watched it and to my surprise I had a feeling of exhilarating love as well as head banging anger. While the overall premise and message of the story is one of pure amazement, some of the questions that the story raises just drives me insane that I cannot help but bitch about it and seeing as how that is my job for this site, I guess I can take it as a good thing.

Tanner Reviews The Purge: Anarchy

The_Purge_–_Anarchy_PosterNow this is what I’m talking about!

The low-budget/high thrills action film about a city devolving into complete anarchy and  directed by James DeMonaco has proven to be a far better movie to its predecessor.

Tanner Reviews World War Z

World_War_Z_posterHoly crap this movie was great! Okay maybe it wasn’t the greatest thing in the world but whenever you go into a movie like this feeling in the pits of your heart that you are about to watch something near and dear to you get destroyed by someone who has no idea what they are doing… And then get surprised to learn that is is actually everything that you would hope for it to  be and more is truly one of the best feelings you could ever have after going to the theater. There were so many people (myself included) who were dreading the day that this came out. Brad Pitt staring in the film adaptation of Max Brook’s book by the same name? My word this can only end in absolute failure… Then we all had to collectively shove our respective feet into our mouths because this film was fantastic. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews World War Z”
