Comments– For some reason I always avoided this movie, even though Bridgette was a big fan. Turns out I actually like it. Though the story is a bit shoddy (with little explanations, and very little build up to the conclusion), I enjoyed the characters of the town, and even the creepy kids. I think the only reason I scored this so highly was, in fact, because of the creepiness factor of the film. I don’t have much else to say about it because I am sure most people have already seen this, but it’s definitely a fun sci-fi romp, and Superman did a good enough job as the hero. I’m highly interested in a sequel…but I don’t know off-hand if there was one. I’ll have to check that out. Good.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
