In October, I wrote about the horror of dismantling source material with Interview with the Vampire. The film had its problems, but I’d be hard pressed to say it is unwatchable. Especially when you compare it with another movie in the Vampire Chronicles, Queen of the Damned. The crown for the worst movie I’ve watched this year belongs to the Queen.
As we enter into October, I’m sure one of us here (not me) will be reviewing the latest horror phenomena on the screen. Before we do that though, I’d like to take you through a real horror; the dismantling of source material.
Full disclosure: I have not seen nor did I intend to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom…it looks bad. My first thought when I saw the teaser trailer was, “What is something new and invigorating they could bring into this franchise?” The answer is nothing.
(Welcome to “Bickering with Brockett,” where Eric gives his thoughts on the world of film. Today he’s diving into the Star Wars franchise as a whole.)
(Today we bring you a new review on Avengers: Infinity War as part of a new feature from our writer Eric Brockett, “Bickering with Brockett!” You can read his previous work here. Eric has a unique voice and admittedly, is much more critical than I tend to be. So his insight into things is always a welcome and refreshing change of pace. We hope you enjoy!)
