Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at the latest Tom Clancy adaptation. Despite the fact that the new Amazon Studios film deviates almost completely from the source material, “Without Remorse” is a swift moving action flick that benefits from a committed performance from star Michael B. Jordan.Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at “The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It,” the first in the series not directed by horror master James Wan. Even so, I’m willing to give it a go as the first two films have earned enough goodwill from yours truly not to dismiss it out of hand. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson return as paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren. Will this case be their last, mwahhahah? Take a look at the trailer below and feel free to comment either here or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at “Mortal Kombat” a martial arts film based on the popular video game series that came out way back in 1992. In 1995, Paul W.A. Anderson had a large hit on his hands when he made the first film based on the game. It was a PG-13 adaptation and thus had none of the gory fatalities that marked the game’s most prominent features, but it was faithful to the storylines of the characters and had a few kick-ass fight scenes that still hold up today. This latest update comes from uber-producer James Wan, best known for his horror franchises like the Conjuring and Insidious series. So how does this new version of “Mortal Kombat” fare? Read on and find out!Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio fun. It’s really entertaining to see what people in the 1940’s and 50’s thought of what the future would hold. Most of it didn’t happen the way those futurists intended, but some of the ideas are still entertainingly trippy. One of the best sci-fi radio programs was “X-Minus One” a radio show with high production values and some very interesting stories. I’ve got two for you hear, one of which “A Gun For Dinosaur” is one of my favorite early time travel stories. Enjoy and feel free to comment below or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with another edition of the Trailer Dog Park. This one features a new trailer from “F9” the ninth film in the blockbuster “Fast And The Furious” franchise. It looks like some of the special effects still need a little touching up, but otherwise it looks like another physics-defying, bromance inducing thrill ride. Here we get to see the return of Han from the dead (wonder how they pulled that off) and introduce John Cena as Dom’s long-lost brother. (Seriously, it took nine films to find out Dom had a younger brother?). Next we have the latest trailer for the new “Mortal Kombat” which promises to step up the violence and action to properly honor the game upon which the film is based. A who’s who of martial arts actors get the plum roles and it looks like director Simon McQuaid has a hit on his hands. “Mortal Kombat” hits theaters and HBO Max next Friday. Enjoy and feel free to comment here or at my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!
