Why The Original ‘Blade Runner’ Remains My Favourite – ScreenHub Entertainment

Since Blade Runner 2049 hit theatres back in 2017, there was a new hype surrounding the cinematic sci-fi world launched by Sir Ridley Scott back in 1982. Underrated and possibly ‘underappreciated’ by most moviegoers, this franchise finally got the prestige and the attention it deserves. In fact, this is the very same franchise that helped launch the genre called “Cyberpunk“, which merges futuristic dystopia, hacker … Continue reading Why The Original ‘Blade Runner’ Remains My Favourite – ScreenHub Entertainment

By The Gods, You Should Absolutely Be Watching ‘Blood of Zeus’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

Spoilers for the first half of the show. Do you like Greek Mythology? Do you think the last few attempts at adapting it, from Immortals to Clash of the Titans were missing something? Well, look no further, as Netflix has you covered with their original animated series, Blood of Zeus. Instead of adapting a preexisting myth, or remaking an old movie, the folks who gave … Continue reading By The Gods, You Should Absolutely Be Watching ‘Blood of Zeus’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

Remember, Remember, ‘V For Vendetta’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

“Remember, remember, the fifth of November, the gunpowder treason and plot.” Every year, people on social media throws this line into the proverbial wind, maybe less so for Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot, and more for the political action film V for Vendetta. While Guy would ultimately be hanged for his attempt (and would get a day named after him in the U.K.), the … Continue reading Remember, Remember, ‘V For Vendetta’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

The Tragedy of Jason Voorhees – ScreenHub Entertainment

Even the most charitable opinions of the Friday the 13th series write it off as an enjoyable camp with little substance. I don’t fault the series for this as Friday the 13th never aspired to be anything more than straightforward genre fun. In many ways, it has already exceeded that goal, still going strong after 40 years even with its relatively simple formula. I’m a … Continue reading The Tragedy of Jason Voorhees – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘The Road to ‘Cyberpunk 2077′: Alita: Battle Angel’ May Have Been Better As A Series – ScreenHub Entertainment

I’m not exactly familiar with Alita: Battle Angel, but like Akira, I’m aware of its impact on pop-culture. I was curious to see what Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron had to offer with this film. The legendary James Cameron wrote this adaptation, but arguably hasn’t really done anything “great” since Titanic. Avatar was, fine, but I think its legacy is dependent on the launch of the … Continue reading ‘The Road to ‘Cyberpunk 2077′: Alita: Battle Angel’ May Have Been Better As A Series – ScreenHub Entertainment

How Does ‘The Thing (2011) Stack Up Against John Carpenter’s Original? – ScreenHub Entertainment

I recently watched John Carpenter’s excellent sci-fi horror film The Thing for the first time. Considering how time is limited until Halloween, I figured it’d be best to cram a few more horror flicks in before we hit November. So why not explore the 2011 version of The Thing? Contrary to what you may think due to the title, this version of the movie isn’t … Continue reading How Does ‘The Thing (2011) Stack Up Against John Carpenter’s Original? – ScreenHub Entertainment

I Watched ‘The Thing’ For The First Time In 2020- ScreenHub Entertainment

Minor spoilers for The Thing.  We’ve all been there, right? We hear about certain iconic films in our lives, whether it be through images, parodies, recreations, essays, or in rankings, yet despite being aware of said movie, never actually got around to watching it. Well, that was me with John Carpenter’s 1982 film The Thing. I heard it was creepy, gross, that its practical effects … Continue reading I Watched ‘The Thing’ For The First Time In 2020- ScreenHub Entertainment

‘The Boys’ And The Corporatization of Superheroes – ScreenHub Entertainment

At the time of its birth, the superhero genre was a charming, small industry that offered escape from an often cruel and unforgiving world, and gave its audience a glimpse of a place where truth and justice always prevailed. In today’s corporate ruled society, that simple charm is all but lost, with countless caped crusaders helming their own multimillion-dollar franchises often run by those who … Continue reading ‘The Boys’ And The Corporatization of Superheroes – ScreenHub Entertainment

No Maniac, No Problem: Why ‘Halloween III’ Is Great – ScreenHub Entertainment

1982 saw the release of one of the most reviled films of its time, the highly anticipated third entry in John Carpenter’s Halloween series. Halloween III: Season of the Witch had nothing to do with series’ villain, Michael Myers, and left audiences feeling betrayed and tricked. Is Halloween III really a bad movie, or could it have been a new beginning for a series that … Continue reading No Maniac, No Problem: Why ‘Halloween III’ Is Great – ScreenHub Entertainment
