The Exorcist: Believer


Another week, another horror film! Back in 2018, David Gordon Green (director) made a new “Halloween” film. It was a direct sequel of the first Halloween and was well-received with both critics and the public. I loved it and couldn’t wait for more. This stemmed two sequels that never lived up to the first entry from Green. We now have a new film that is a sequel to a classic horror film in “The Exorcist.” I should mention that Danny McBride helped write this as he did the Halloween movies. Great actor, usually great writer. That being said the plan is for another trilogy if this one does well. Looking at the box office results as I write this review, I believe there will be a sequel. Is it warranted?

Home Alone


I know you’re expecting to see Avatar: The Way of Water this week. The original Avatar is the highest grossing film of all time. The sequel obviously has a lot of hype and expectations. However, if you’ve seen the first film you know its specialty is as a three dimensional film. That being said, I will be in Columbus this weekend for my college graduation! So, I will be finding the biggest and loudest screen to watch it on. So, this week we have our last retro review of the year. In recent weeks we’ve reviewed, Die Hard, Jusrassic World: Dominion (in its rerelease) and A Christmas Story Christmas. In keep with the theme of Christmas films lately we will be looking at another holiday classic. HOME ALONE! The “Home Alone” franchise seemed one sequel with our pint-size hero Kevin (Culkin) and his hijinks when his family keeps forgetting him! Then spinoffs and new renditions with other characters. The first one is a classic. The film was released in 1990 and the premise was a simple one. Kevin McCallister and his family are heading off for a family vacation, but Kevin gets inadvertently left…..How would this film hold up 32 years later?
