Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) | Movie Review

Friday the 13th Part 2 is likely the film most people think of when referencing this iconic series, but not even close to the best slasher film out there. Though it does have its charms.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) | Movie Review

Venom (2018) | Movie Review

Venom is an unusual superhero film in that it’s more of an anti-hero story. Other than the below-the-radar Punisher movies, we haven’t really gotten one this mainstream from Marvel.
