Superversive rating: Negative -5/5 Story rating: 5/5 One word: Unnerving Short Thoughts: The Joker is a grim showing of a man descending into madness. It's an uncomfortable movie to watch, although I found it also rather fascinating - in a watching a car crash kind of way. It is expertly made, in both story and … Continue reading Joker – movie review
Story Rating: 4/5 Superversive Rating: In One Word: Twisty! Short Thoughts: This is how to do a CGI out of a video game. It's like fan-service, but with Pokemon, and a really good story to carry it.

However I did very … Continue reading The Head Hunter – movie review
Story Rating:3/4 Superversive Rating: 4/5 In One Word: Nonseasonal Short Thoughts: A perfectly passable children's movie. It's somewhat simple story, straight forwards, and pacing seems a bit fast. It's nothing near the excellently crafted Chicken Run - that one's a classic for a reason. The characters were amusing, if odd, the humor was... lol interesting. … Continue reading Early Man – movie review
Story Rating: 3/5 Superversive Rating: 2/5 In One Word: Crisis Short Thoughts: The monster parts are great! I got super hyped when the original music comes in. YESSSS!!! You can never fully replace two men in rubber suits wrestling, however, seeing the Kaiju in beautiful CGI is pretty epic. However, too many human characters, and … Continue reading Godzilla King of the Monster – Why you can’t replace a sci-fi with a mediocre thriller.
