A private user reviewed Cabin Fever (2016)
My my, the most horrifying thing about this Cabin Fever remake is the vitriolic scorn poured on it by the horror hordes! It is in no way a great film, or even a particularly good one either, but to me it's no worse than a whole ream of other gore based horrors I have been bored by since the new millennium dawned.

The Magnificent Seven
The western genre has gradually been making its way back into the cinematic fold. Recent dusty trail ditties such as David McKenzie's modern-day _Hell or High Water_ or Quentin Tarantino's _The Hateful Eight_ have proven to be recent saddle-tested gems that enthusiastically put cowpoke enthusiasts in movie theater seats. Furthermore, what would Hollywood do if it did not predictably invite yet another remake of a classic film into the moviegoers' mindset? Hence, director Antoine Fuqua takes a challenging stab at generating interest in his latest workman-like western shoot 'em up in ...

> About trusting a prankster for a risky job.
It was so much better than I anticipated, but the end ruined my party. It was the right time I saw it, because I haven't seen any heist films recently. It was not like any genuine heist theme, but still I kind of enjoyed it for being a slightly different, especially the first two acts. It is about the two cops, actually they're part of the ...

**When a secret long hidden makes its way out...**
A very surprising Aussie film. Not all the Australian film makes big at the world stage. So this film was not known to many people, but I am lucky to watch this. The film was based on the Norwegian play called 'The Wild Duck'. It was adapted several times for the screen, but this is the latest and a modernised version. The first film for the ...

Fun film. Has plenty of action sequences and great plot twists throughout the film that make it more interesting. Plenty of well developed characters throughout, and each character has great depth. The execution of the stunts was superb and had breathtaking set-pieces throughout. It's more faithful to the games than other previous game adaptions like Doom and Warcraft: The Beginning, and it moves away from the story while keeping what made the games so well received. A great movie, definitely worth the watch.

**People come together for a reason, but stay together for no reason.**
According to me this film was silently made. I mean we only anticipate big production films and current famous director, actors' films, particularly the science fiction and superhero films as they are the trend now. The promotion begins from the day it was announced. So I did not realise when this one started to come to exist. But when I did come to ...

Killer Joe is one of those neo-noir films that is just a little too off tilt for me to enjoy completely. It plays on dumb Southerner stereotypes a little too much and is just overall a little too strange. I was surprised at the tone of this film with Friedkin at the helm. It definitely didn't feel like the Friedkin pieces I have seen, with its comedic narrative undercutting the overall dark tone.
I feel like Killer Joe wants to be a Fargo for Texas, and it doesn't succeed at all ...
Life is another entry into the "What's in outer space," genre. Although it doesn't really bring anything new to the table, it is a sleek and enjoyable thriller with a likable cast.
A six man team aboard the International Space Station discover a highly evolved life form on Mars. The species is studied at length until things take a drastic turn.
A superbly executed testament of the struggles of a gay boy as he grows into a teen and later an adult. I could probably talk about this movie for a couple of hours with the right person. There is so much under the surface of such a simply shot character study.
Collectively, the acting here is top tier, and from such a range of unknowns mixed in with seasoned vets like Ali and ...
