‘Jaws’ Hits Very Close to Home During COVID

“If we make an effort today, we might be able to save August.” It strikes me, watching Jaws on a blazing hot Valley afternoon in the summer of 2021, that if they had simply closed the beaches of Amity Island and told nearby towns to do the same thing, the shark…

You Love To See It 27: Attack the Block

Since actor and activist John Boyega (perhaps best known as Finn from the latest Star Wars trilogy) has been making a stir lately with awesome speeches, we thought we’d revisit the movie that landed him his first starring role. Attack the Block is a small-scale alien invasion movie, with a…

You Love To See It 24: Stay Alive

So, get this… if you die in the game, you die in REAL LIFE. That’s not the entire premise of Stay Alive, a delightfully goofy 2006 thriller starring beloved character actors like Jimmi Simpson, Frankie Muniz, and Adam Goldberg. But it is… a lot of it. Combining surprisingly good pulls…

You Love To See It 22: Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within is not a great movie. It’s probably not even a good movie. But it’s a fairly interesting film, at least for its historic significance: it was supposed to launch a “digital actress” in Ming-Na Wen’s character, Dr. Aki Ross. It was absurdly expensive. It flopped…

You Love to See It 20: Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is good! But Advent Children, the 2005 movie that acts as a direct sequel to FF7 (though, spoiler alert, perhaps not Remake) is absolutely not. Steven, John and Danielle go on the terrible journey with Cloud Strife and Yazoo (“the quietest Remnant”) that fails to…

You Love To See It: Doom

Today, in honor of all that sweet, sweet Doom SEO, we decided to watch Doom (2005), a movie that we knew wasn’t great, exactly, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Karl Urban, and Rosamund Pike. Oh man. It’s not very good, but worse, it’s also not very fun. Trading demons for……

You Love To See It 15: Hail Satan?

The Satanic Temple might not be what you think it is. It was founded in the last decade by a bunch of folks who wanted to use Satan as a symbol for tolerance and religious pluralism in the US, and this documentary takes a light touch towards founder Lucien Greaves…
