There are always a few movies that come out and make you wonder, "How did this get made?" Season of the Witch is that kind of movie. It opens with a hanging of three women who are accused of witchcraft. They try to convince the priest of the their innocence and of course he wont hear it. Afterwards the priest attempts to read the wom... Read More

The release of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps on DVD/Blu-ray brings a lot of good features.  Viewing the film itself in this format and venue allows you to slow down the action, replay a scene that may have been misunderstood and allows you to play it whenever you want.  Well I'm sure you already knew that, but I just wanted to emphasize...

Back in 2007 a movie called Grindhouse hit the theaters.  It was directed by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, and styled in such a way to bring back that nostalgia feeling of the exploitation drive-in classics from the 1970's.  In between the films, the filmmakers inserted fake trailers. Such was the case for a B-movie trailer,... Read More

When my wife asked which movie I had received for review, I didn't tell her the name -- I just hummed the tune, and she paused and said, "The A-Team!   I think that is an impressive indication of the original's pervasive influence; my wife grew up in Haitian Catholic boarding schools.  As Hollywood adapts our childhood memori...

Mark Wahlberg has a tendency to be type cast as the guy "from the streets" and while he has often expressed some displeasure with the kind of films offered to him there is certainly no way you can deny how well he does in these roles. His newest venture is called The Fighter, about the early years of Irish Mickey Ward and his brother, Dic... Read More

The best way to go view the latest adaption of True Grit is as its own entity. There was the first movie with the legendary John Wayne and now there is the 21st century version with Jeff Bridges. Both versions are good representations of the book by Charles Portis. Though neither can deliver the true sense of revenge that the book delivers, but wha... Read More

Who doesn't love a buddy cop movie? It all started way back in the eighties with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Their on screen chemistry starting with the first of four Lethal Weapon movies set a bar all action/comedy movies to come. There have been many incarnations of this type over the years, and with varied combinations. The one, though, that br... Read More

Gamers and action junkies will have a treat in store with the release of Tron: Legacy a computer game plot with spunk.  The fast paced adventure may be a sequel, but plays well to first timers.  If there is a downside to the film, it's that adults 35+ will probably not like or even understand the storyline.  But, if your ilk is getti...
