In the 1960s, the United States was introduced to Camelot. Camelot – a time of romance and prosperity. The time in which there was contentment throughout the kingdom and people were happy. Well, we, as Americans, didn't have King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, or The Knights of the Round Table; we had the White House, the Oval Office, and the K... Read More

There was a time when horror movies meant scary monsters who preyed on teenagers and created massive amounts of carnage wherever they went.  More recently, though, a lot of these type of horror movies have been replaced with a more suspenseful, psychological thriller-like motif of storytelling that offers a few scares but also plays tricks on ...

Disney had a strong year movie-wise in 2016.  From Zootopia to the sequel Finding Dory and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to Captain America: Civil War, they had a full slate of quality movies, both animated and live action. Their year culminated in their strongest animated feature, Moana. From a great story to catchy music to amazing animation,... Read More

Some people thought Howard Hughes was a genius, others would call him eccentric.  Some would say he was eclectic or reclusive and others would simply state he was crazy.  His OCD tendencies were as famous as his deals and mountains of money, not to mention the Hollywood starlets who often accompanied him.  He made money in everything...

I always find that the hardest reviews to write are for movies that I thought were out of this world, and Marvel Studio's Doctor Strange is at the top of my writer's block list.   From the script to the special effects to the cast, Doctor Strange is one of the best Marvel movies to date.  After all, some of the best things in life...

Vestron Video strikes again!  Hot on the heels of Parents and Lair of the White Worm, comes the oft-overlooked but always a ton of fun, The Gate.  The Gate is directed by Tibor Takács (The Gate 2, I, Madman) and stars Stephen Dorff (Blade, The Immortals) in his film debut.... Read More

It's rare that one gets to watch a movie about self-discovery but Lionsgate and A24 have released a movie that when you watch it, provides a profound sense of oneself and understanding of what it takes to mold a person from childhood to adulthood.   Director Barry Jenkins (Medicine for Melancholy) has taken a story and transforme...

Jordan Peele is known for being a comedian.  Along with his partner Keegan Michael Key (Why Him?), they have starred in their own sketch comedy show and last year's successful movie, Keanu.  So it's a little surprising to see he has written and directed a horror film called Get Out.  Based on his background it doesn...

Dirty Dancing can't possibly be 30 years old!!  It came out the summer before my junior year of high school and I'm not that old… am I (Don't answer that question)?  When I saw the Blu-ray come across my desk, I was immediately thrown back to that more innocent time in my life and reminisced about sitting in the movie theater watch...

Ahhhh... the sights, the sounds, and the smells of the Holiday Season.  They bring back fond memories and induce excitement for the gift giving and receiving to come.  Multicolored blinking lights and Holiday songs blaring throughout every public place you go.  Guys dressed up like Santa Clause taking pictures with kids of all ages g...
