The Middling Earth: Scream 3 (2000)

As a rule, you must always prepare for the worst when it comes to sequels. Even worse when it comes in threes. And even worse, worse, worse when it’s a horror. Because, as you know, trilogies in the genre don’t usually end up being the best. Unless you count Toy Story as horror which you could if you are deathly afraid of spider legged doll heads and … Continue reading The Middling Earth: Scream 3 (2000)

Middling Earth: Sucker Punch (2011)

Of course, … Continue reading The Middling Earth: Artemis Fowl (2020)

The Middling Earth: Reign of Fire (2002)

There are a lot of films in which the apocalypse has ravaged the world. In The Hunger Games, famine drove people to revolution and the wealthy turned it into a ruthless dictatorship that slaughters children yearly. In Water World, as you can defer from the title, the whole world is practically underwater thanks to the old polar ice-caps melting. Then you got your run of … Continue reading The Middling Earth: Reign of Fire (2002)
