    • AYTIWS Reviews: Godzilla (2014)

      Our review of the thirtieth Godzilla film, directed by Gareth Edwards, financed by Warner Bros., and generally bland enough for even the mainstream critics to kinda, sorta like in the most condescending way possible.

    • AYTIWS Reviews: Captain America: The Winter Sold...

      Our review of the second Captain America movie of the 21st century...not counting The Avengers or the Ultimate Avengers cartoon duology. Not that anyone remembers those little pictures. Not to spoil anything, but...it's so much better than the last one, I can barely believe it was written by the same people. I suspect the use of a Cosmic Cube or three, by someone, somewhere.

    • AYTIWS Reviews: Justice League: War (2014)

      Our review of the eighteenth straight-to-video animated feature from DC Comics/Warner Brothers (since they started counting, in 2007) and the fifth with the Justice League's name on it. "Is it any better than the last one...?" No. Just worse in a different way. "How could it possibly be any worse?" That, my friend, is the "genius" of Geoff Johns: just when you think you've plumbed the depths of his backward-ass, character-lite, two-page-splash-driven writing style, he'll write something else, ...

    • AYTIWS Reviews: Gamera vs. Guiron (1969)

      Our review of the fifth Gamera film of the Showa Era. It's better than the last one...I suppose that's something...

    • AYTIWS Reviews: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Sm...

      Our review of the second Peter Jackson-directed Hobbit movie finds us catching up to where...at least half the mainstream press was last year, wearily resigned to watch Jackson & Co. make a three hour movie out of material that doesn't support it. Like a pie that burst in the oven, or a Baby Boomer who laughs with their mouth open, it's fillings are showing...but who cares, right? Hot Elf chick! (And Legolas is back, too...assuming you gave a crap. All the Elves I cared about were in the first...

    • AYTIWS Reviews: Thor: The Dark World (2013)

      Our review of the sequel to 2011's...and a little movie from 2012 you might've heard of...think they called it "The Avengers" or some such...

    • AYTIWS Reviews: Carrie (2002)

      A correspondent sent me an email saying, "I'm really looking forward to your review of the Carrie remake." He didn't say which one.

    • AYTIWS Reviews: The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999)

      Our review of the twenty-plus-years-after-the-fact sequel to Carrie, wherein we answer the question, "Why does this even exist? Why, God why?"
