‘The Predator’ Trades Horror For Humor With Mixed Results – ScreenHub Entertainment

Seeing the original Predator at 12 introduced me to a leaner, meaner kind of movie I hadn’t yet been exposed to. Times were different then. There were only two Predator movies, Aliens vs. Predator hadn’t yet left comics and video games, and sequels were something everyone was clamouring for. Times have changed. Now fans of this series react at best with scepticism when a new … Continue reading ‘The Predator’ Trades Horror For Humor With Mixed Results – ScreenHub Entertainment

Why ‘Aliens’ Didn’t Turn The Monster Into A Space Bug – ScreenHub Entertainment

Though considered a classic, James Cameron’s Aliens isn’t without its critics. A sequel to Alien, one of the most persistent criticisms of Cameron’s film was that it de-mystified the creature. Its approach is said to lack the personality of the original beast, dumbing it down to an unintelligent animal that more closely resembled an insect. While certainly an issue found in various comic book and … Continue reading Why ‘Aliens’ Didn’t Turn The Monster Into A Space Bug – ScreenHub Entertainment

Why ‘Predator’ Is A Subversive Masterpiece – ScreenHub Entertainment

Most people don’t think ‘art’ when discussing Predator. The 1987 science fiction classic is fondly remembered for spectacular action, quotable dialogue, and a monster who has joined the ranks of Frankenstein and Dracula as a cultural icon. However, many overlook some of the film’s more subtle underpinnings. Though at a glance the film is just another entry into the 80s cycle of action films, it … Continue reading Why ‘Predator’ Is A Subversive Masterpiece – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘Buffalo Bill Is NOT Transgender’ Claims ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Actor – ScreenHub Entertainment

Silence of the Lambs is no stranger to controversy. Though met with critical acclaim upon its release, the film was accused of perpetuating negative stereotypes of gay and transgender people due to the characterization of Jame Gumb, the serial killer being hunted by FBI agent Clarice Starling. This culminated in a massive protest at the Oscars on the night that Silence took home all five … Continue reading ‘Buffalo Bill Is NOT Transgender’ Claims ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Actor – ScreenHub Entertainment

Maidens & Maniacs: Female Empowerment in the Slasher Genre – ScreenHub Entertainment

Since the slasher sub-genre of horror films exploded into cinemas in the late ’70s, many critics have attacked the genre as being sexist against women. Films like Halloween, Friday the 13th and others are often labelled as misogynistic morality tales that punish those living their lives freely, and only reward the so-called “good girls” with their lives. This is a tune sang by many of … Continue reading Maidens & Maniacs: Female Empowerment in the Slasher Genre – ScreenHub Entertainment
