JA-FP-0005.0An eclectic collection of critiques

Good day to you, dear listener. This episode of The Horror Movie Show, hosted by Jerry & Mark, is a hodgepodge of subjects, including some initial chatter about favourite television comedies. Another Period, Review & Comedy Bang! Bang! are all recommended.

And on to movies… Starting with the mega-hit from Chinese director Daniel Lee, Dragon Blade stars Jackie Chan, John Cusack, Adrien Brody & lovely Sharni Vinson. This is an odd story, to say the least.

Exodus: Gods & Kings is the newest take on the Old Testament story of Moses & the enslavement of the Israelites. Directed by Ridley Scott, the movie stars Christian Bale as tough-guy Moses.

A trio of flicks aimed at juveniles is next. Jupiter Ascending pointlessly stars the stunning Mila Kunis in a Cinderella story with great special effects. The Maze Runner is a soulless Hunger Games-type movie. And writer-director Justin Price‘s Dark Moon Rising features a whispering hero in a confusing story of teenaged werewolves.

The Redwood Massacre is gory fun. Final Prayer (aka The Borderlands) is a decent British chiller. And last (also least) is Monsters: Dark Continent, arguably the worst sequel reviewed in quite a while. Cheers all!
