WASDuk Review: Morgan

Morgan kicks off with video footage of the title character (Anya Taylor-Joy; see her in the amazing The VVitch if you haven’t already) springing across a table, fork in hand, to take out the eye of Dr. Kathy Grieff (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Morgan isn’t human, her DNA and cells have been spliced with bio-mechanical parts created by a group of…

Suicide Squad Breaks August Box Office Record

  We’ve been pretty amused by the large volume of “hate-viewers” who scrambled to put out early reviews of Suicide Squad since they didn’t actually watch it. It’s becoming more and more evident that presumptions and personal indifference have led these hate-viewers (people or movie critics who paid to see Suicide Squad despite hating all things DC)) to…

WASDuk Review: Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad is a competent action film. It doesn’t go overboard yet phenomenally perv like Fox’s Deadpool and that’s okay. The multi-verse set-up in Batman V Superman was considered by most to be a little too brooding, though the new extended cut that shows off more of Darkseid’s minions in addition to further Motherbox footage showcases what should have…

WASDuk Review: Ouija

Film: Ouija Grade: F Since the posters for Ouija tell you that it is a surefire sign of disaster – posting at the top that it is from the producers of Insidious and Texas Chainsaw Massacre – I bought my ticket in South Korea today with everybody else (actually, the theater was near empty) and took a chance. Why, you ask?…

WASDuk Review – Justice League: Throne of Atlantis

Film: Justice League: Throne of Atlantis Grade: D The first entry in DC’s latest Justice League animated reboot was tedious. Justice League: War even threw in a short sneak-peek-a-la-Marvel after its credits, where Ocean Master was introduced. The aftermath of the Leaguers fight with Darkseid had killed a lot of fish, and Ocean Master no likey. Justice League: Throne…

WASDuk Review: Tusk

Movie: Tusk Grade: F It’s stupid. It’s in bad taste. It’s impossible. Every movie fan knows that. Look, Tom Six had three people surgically stitched together, ass to mouth, in 2009’s The Human Centipede: The First Sequence and the hoi polloi blew their biscuits. This is supposed to be a farce, people. From the opening scene in…

WASDuk Review: Jessabelle

Film: Jessabelle Grade: F- Director Kevin Greutert (Saw 3D, Saw VI) knows exactly what he’s doing with this latest ghost-girl-with-long-black-hair Ringu alum. And that’s the main problem. The minor problem is that horror films have always clung to the tag-line that they are based on true events. Lately though, a large line of terrible films…

WASDuk Review: V/H/S 3: Viral

Film: V/H/S 3: Viral Grade: C One thing the V/H/S franchise has done better than its fellow brethren of hand-held horror is to not be embarrassed by its terrible special effects. Whereas the recent stylistics of As Above, So Below and Houses that October Built decided to shake their cameras until the baddies were unrecognizable, spurning critics and fans…

WASDuk Review: Babadook

Movie: The Babadook Grade: A+ Writer-director Jennifer Kent has Amelia (Essie Davis) arrive for her parent-teacher conference in her nurse uniform, and she’s a teetering wreck. It’s nearly her son Samuel’s (an other-worldly Noah Wiseman) birthday, but that may be just a ticking bomb since his aunt has already explained why her daughter doesn’t want…

WASDuk Review: Batman Assault on Arkham

Film: Batman: Assault on Arkham Grade: C Task Force X was an uncompromising episode from Justice League: Unlimited (aka JLU). A covert agency assembled C-listers like Plastique alongside the slightly more established rogues of Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and the Clock King. DC’s latest straight-to-DVD offering, Batman: Assault on Arkham, is not much different. Deadshot is once again drafted…

WASDuk Review: Edge of Tomorrow

Movie: Edge of Tomorrow Grade: C Doug Liman, who is best known for his crafty work on the original Bourne trilogy starring Matt Damon, doesn’t stray far from familiar territory for his latest flick Edge of Tomorrow. Viewers can even play a nice little find and replace game between Bourne and Tomorrow, where Moby’s Extreme Ways morphs into John Newman’s Love Me Again and…

WASDuk Review: The Punk Singer

The Riot Grrrl movement teetered back and forth between punk genius and reporters writing so much baseless trash that the best voice of the bunch retreated in utter-disgust: Kathleen Hanna. Director Sini Anderson, unlike those headline hungry hacks of the early 90’s, does all her fact checking and leaves no stone unturned. Kathleen’s journey begins with…

WASDuk Review: Kill Your Darlings

Word on the set was that first time director John Krokidas was screaming at Daniel Radcliffe to kiss Dane DeHaan as though they were having crazy fucking monkey sex. And its this type of shit-slinging vivacity that makes Kill Your Darlings one of the best films of 2013 that nobody watched. Radcliffe sheds his wizard’s skin to…

WASDuk Review: Son of Batman

When an unfamiliar antagonist going by the moniker of Phantasm took center stage in 1993’s Batman: Mask of the Phantasm the nerves wore thin until the Joker showed up. There is something historically refreshing about proven and familiar villains that the audience knows are important. When the viewers meet any new character, friend or foe, then chances…
