Evil Dead Review

9 Apr

Head over to the ZEFR-U Blog to check out my review of the remake of Evil Dead. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie despite its paper thin plot and weak characterizations, and was also thoroughly grossed out by its ridiculous gore. Best horror film to come out in years, and well worth the price of admission. [...]

Dead Space 3 Review

27 Feb

Earlier this week Gamesabyss posted my review of Dead Space 3, which I am reposting here. I am a huge fan of the Dead Space franchise but grew wary of the threequel when it was revealed at E3 that it would take place primarily on an ice planet called Tau Volantis and feature co-op play. [...]

Alien vs. Predator Marathon, Part 4

11 Jun

3. Prometheus (2012) SPOILER ALERT Yeah, yeah- I know. I’m breaking the chronological order of this marathon. But I just saw Prometheus on Friday and it’s still fresh in my mind, so I figured I should break protocol and write about it while it’s still the talk of the internet. Plus, I’ve decided I only [...]

Alien vs. Predator Marathon, Part 3

5 Jun

Aliens (1986) Special Edition God, I love this movie. Combined with Terminator 2, Aliens is an example of an action director at the peak of his career. Say what you will about Avatar and Titanic, there’s no denying that at the turn of the 1990s, James Cameron was the king of action. A lot of [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 5

31 May

5. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Until the release of The Avengers I considered Captain America to be the best of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Now I would probably call it a tie between Cap and the first Iron Man, but I still think the former is more unique and less of your [...]

Alien vs. Predator Marathon, Part 2

21 May

Ridley Scott’s Alien, Continued A movie so awesome it required two posts!! One of the many things I find interesting about this film is how Ripley isn’t a clear, definable protagonist. She becomes the protagonist over the course of the film, but for the first two acts she barely speaks. She doesn’t go down to [...]

Alien vs. Predator Marathon, Part 1

17 May

Fuck yeah, baby!! IT’S ON!! I know what you’re thinking. Well, maybe. If you’ve never been here before you’re probably thinking “Who the fuck is this Alex Hilhorst kid?” If you’re one of my friends or stumbled upon this site while Googling the phrase “Mass Effect 2 Best Game Ever,” you’re probably wondering “What about [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 4

15 May

4. Thor (2011) I enjoyed Thor much more than I thought I would and was surprised by how solidly entertaining it was. I’ve never been a big fan of the character or the idea that Asgardian gods coexist with dudes in robot suits, super soldiers and big green monsters, but director Kenneth Branagh and star [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 3

7 May

Okay, so I slacked off on this. It’s May 7th and The Avengers has already come out and I’ve already seen it. But fuck it, I’m gonna go through with this- finish what you start, you know? So… where were we? 3. Iron Man 2 (2010) Iron Man 2 is undoubtedly the worst film in [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 2

30 Apr

2. The Incredible Hulk (2008) I’m beginning to see a trend with these Marvel movies. It seems to me that when the suits got together and decided to go ahead with their cinematic universe initiative, part of the plan was to enlist A-list actors of superb talent to bring Marvel’s iconic heroes to life. A [...]
