Dog’s Movie House: “Saw X” proves there’s still life in the long running franchise!”

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at “Saw X” the tenth film in a franchise nearly twenty years old. The Saw franchise has declined in quality with each new convoluted chapter, so it was quite the surprise to see that this installment is actually the best film in the entire series. This is due to the fact that “Saw X” actually takes place between the first two films and places the narrative solely on the shoulders of Tobin Bell’s John Kramer, also known as the villainous Jigsaw. Kramer, after receiving his cancer diagnosis, decides to try an expensive experimental treatment in Mexico. What he finds out is that the whole staff are actually a group of con artists who manage to swindle Kramer out of his money without performing any surgery. This leads Kramer to take the whole team of criminals prisoner to play a series of his violent games.

Dog’s Movie House: “The Equalizer 3” Makes For A Thriller Denzel Washington Series Capper!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at Denzel Washington’s third go around as retired government assassin Robert McCall. The Equalizer brand has remained popular over the years with Washington’s successful movies and Queen Latifah’s entertaining teleivsion reboot. Funny to imagine that both this film and the series were inspired by an eighties program featuring Edward Woodward as a retired British operative who comes to the aid of those in need. McCall does the same thing in “The Equalizer 3” only with a lot more bone-crunching violence!

Dog’s Movie House: “Nobody” The Anonymous Action Hero Courtesy Of The Writer Of “John Wick!”

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at “Nobody” the latest story about an unassuming man who has, in the words of “Taken”, “an unusual set of skills.” The plot of this story is nothing you haven’t seen before at least in some variation and the action, while visceral and well-choreographed, is also nothing revolutionary. What makes this film stand out is the lead performance of Bob Odenkirk, probably best known for his lead performance in “Better Call Saul.” His world-weary, beaten down everyman who finally loses it is the highlight of the film.

The Trailer Dog Park: More “Pennywise” In Latest “IT” Trailer, Bruce Willis In “Deathwish” Remake!

Howdy Folks!  It’s The Kendog!

Pennywise The Dancing Clown In “IT”




I have to tell you, the new “IT” film is looking really good, based on the trailers and the second one I’m showing actually features Pennywise speaking.  Talk about a spooky voice!  It’s looking like the Stephen King adaptation to see this year as “The Dark Tower” seems to be a bit of a disappointment.  I’ll be weighing in on that movie this weekend, but in the meantime, check out the second trailer for “IT” below.  Also breaking today was the trailer for Eli Roth’s redo of the classic Charles Bronson film “Deathwish.”  Now I’ll be really interested in your opinions on this particular trailer.  The original film was a tense drama about a man turning to vigilantism in order to not only find justice for his family but also to deal with his grief.  Roth’s take on the material seems more like a generic action film, complete with AC/DC soundtrack.  It’s nice to see Bruce Willis out of the direct-to-video gulag and I have high hopes for the film, but this first trailer is doing me no favors.  Feel free to comment below with your opinion.  So Sayeth The Kendog!
