Earth To Echo

Earth To Echo (2014)

As we approach the time of the year that is solely dedicated to huge budget blockbusters and animated talking animals, it becomes increasingly harder to find a film that I really want to see at the cinema. Thankfully, amidst the hairy apes and shiny Transformers is a science fiction film whose trailer pricked my interest.…

Mini Reviews #11

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (2011) Director: Mary Lambert Starring: Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, A Martinez An extraordinary case of a film being so bad that it comes full circle to being utterly enjoyable to watch.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

Whereas some might cringe and recoil at the prospect of characters spontaneously bursting in to song, there is very little in the cinematic and theatrical universe that gives me more pleasure.…

Grace Of Monaco (2014)

Long time readers of Oh! That Film Blog will remember the fateful day last September when I, for the love of film criticism, forced myself to endure the cinematic car crash that was 2013’s poorly judged and even more poorly received Diana. Nightmares of the utterly cringeworthy event are still had to this day, and…
