Incredibles 2

The Parr’s return for another super powered family adventure in Brad Bird’s long awaited Incredibles 2. The Incredibles came out before the current superhero renaissance that currently fills screens. There were superhero films at the time but not to the same extent or standard that we have now so it stood out as something new,…

Kneel Before Pod – Jurassic Park – Spoilersaurus

Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park is one of the most enduring and iconic blockbusters ever released. The upcoming release of the newest entry to the franchise and the timing of the 25th anniversary of the film’s release it seemed like the perfect time for Kneel Before Pod to have a conversation about this landmark film.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Ranking Phase II

Since the last time I did this list there have been more films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so I saw fit to update that list ahead of the imminent release of the long awaited Avengers: Infinity War. I’ve altered some of the text on the entries that belonged to the previous list where…

10 Worst Movies of 2017

2017 was another year of change for Kneel Before Blog. The biggest change was that we switched to a star rating system for film around halfway through the year. TV will continue to be rated out of 10 but films will be rated on a scale of 1-5 stars as is the accepted standard for…

I wasn’t a fan of Godzilla. Despite its beautiful cinematography and exciting monster fight sequences the general experience was a dud so I…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

It seems to be a common held belief that, of late, Tim Burton has lost his mojo somewhat, and become a bit of a parody of himself. Many would place the blame for this at the feet of such films as Charlie and the Chocolate factory, and Dark Shadows, where he has lent very heavily…

The Legend of Tarzan

David Yates’ The Legend of Tarzan brings back the most adapted character in history for a new adventure. The twist with this one is that it’s set after the Tarzan stories have already happened so it seems to want to do its own thing. Think Hook but with more Apes. It’s a good idea. Most…

The Hateful Eight

Quentin Tarantino’s eighth film is also his second western and by his own admission, we can expect at least one more. To say that is an exciting prospect after The Hateful Eight would be a major understatement. The film opens on snow covered, western landscapes that would feel at home in any John Ford epic….
