Sponsored: Horror Movie’s Game-Changer 4DX meets IT: Chapter 2

IT: Chapter Two in 4DX

This one is especially for horror movie fans everywhere: IT: Chapter Two is coming to 4DX cinema. There are many 4DX fans who were strongly intrigued by the chemistry of 4DX format and horror movies.

4DX fits perfectly with horror movies, with its concept of giving moviegoers some interactivity while visiting the cinema. Andy Muschietti’s previous instalment in the franchise, IT received tremendous feedback from movie-goers who enjoyed the roller-coaster ride 4DX movies provided them.

4DX cinemas offer not only the advanced motion seating along with wind, mist, fog, lighting, and even smell effects (where applicable), but also a unique benefit for horror films, as these features can enhance the jump scares and give more of the roller-coaster thrills horror movie fans crave.

4DX can make scary movies even scarier offering another way of viewing a horror film and is a definite draw in getting people to the cinema to see this genre of film. It’s a really fun way for the audience to get engrossed in the action and the horror.

IT Chapter Two in 4DX

The History of Horror movies in 4DX

4DX enhances across a variety of genres but horror tops the list. The first 4DX horror hit, My Bloody Valentine (2009) exceeded audience expectations when it broke box office records over 2D, breaking pre-sale records (the printer actually ran out of tickets) at CGV Sang-am (South Korea) for two weeks prior to its release. The film went on to average an incredible 91% occupancy rate during its run for eight weeks.

2017’s horror hits IT and Annabelle: Creation in 4DX topped occupancy rates across the globe during its opening weekend. IT brought in a 80% occupancy rate in Croatia and India, respectively, 77% in Hungary, and 64% in UK. In India and Puerto Rico, Annabelle: Creation opened with an all-time high of a 99% occupancy rate.

Angel Has Fallen review “At least it’s better than the last one”

Angel Has Fallen posterIt’s always surprising when a truly awful film performs well at the box-office, but that’s exactly what happened with 2017’s London Has FallenDespite overwhelmingly poor reviews, the sequel to 2013’s marginally better Olympus Has Fallen made over four times its production budget in ticket sales.

Naturally, a sequel in the now originally named ‘Fallen’ film series was greenlit soon after with the majority of the cast returning for the third instalment. But is the finished product, Angel Has Fallen as bad as its predecessor? Or is this the turning point? Continue reading

Quentin Tarantino Movies: Ranked

The Best Tarantino FilmsThis is the definitive guide to all of Quentin Tarantino’s films. Yes, you read that correctly. This is the correct ranking of the nine (Yes, nine. I’m counting Kill Bill as one like Tarantino does.) films from Quentin Tarantino. These are the correct opinion, and if you don’t agree with me, you are just wrong.

Oh boy, this is going to be difficult as I attempt to not be murdered for my opinions on this list. Tarantino is a great director who has made four amazing films, two pretty good movies, one okay flick, and whatever the heck Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood was. Now, comes the time to rank them as I’m sure that many will disagree with my rankings, mainly numbers 9 through 1, but as we now stand in a waiting period of possibly six years until the next one, it feels like now is the best time.

Hobbs & Shaw review “Unashamedly ludicrous”

Hobbs & Shaw posterPart of this post is sponsored by 4DX Cinemas. The Fast & Furious franchise has carved itself quite the enviable niche over the course of its nine-film run. Starting out as little more than a load of pretty people racing pretty cars around pretty locations, the series has evolved into a well-connected universe that is frankly, absolutely ludicrous.

Two of those big names, Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham were true highlights in the two previous instalments in the series, both of which crossed the coveted $1billion mark at the global box office and with spin-offs being the order of the day, a Hobbs & Shaw solo film was greenlit.

David Leitch who made his directorial debut with John Wick and then followed up with Atomic Blonde and a decent sequel to Deadpool was drafted in to make this film as bonkers as anything he’s created before. But what is the finished product like? Continue reading

The Best Films of 1989: Top 5

the best films of 1989Turning 30 is a big deal, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. With some trepidation, I entered my fourth decade on this earth in August 2019, and the lack of a world-changing event was surprising by its absence. Perhaps I had built it up to be something more than it was.

Nevertheless, I intend to spend my next decade seeing as many places as I can, trying new things and watching as many films as possible. With that in mind, I decided to get right back to where I started – way back in 1989. These are the top five movies from 1989: the year of my birth. Let me tell you, this wasn’t an easy list to make – 1989 had some cracking films released, but I’ve managed to narrow it down to just five. Without further ado, let’s take a look. Continue reading
