James Bond is one of the most iconic and enduring characters in cinematic history.  Fans of Albert Broccoli's creation anticipate a new release and are anxious to own each film in the catalog when they become available for home theater.  The twenty-fourth film in the franchise hits stores today, and it will,  no doubt, be as popular ...

Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds; Green Lantern) is no super hero.  In fact, he is probably the anti-super hero.  He doesn't care about justice, unless it involves his own quest for revenge.  He isn't interested in saving lives or bringing down the bad guys, again, unless it serves his purpose.   He's funny, crass, sarcastic, sel...

Never judge a book by its cover.  Or in this case, never judge a movie by its trailer.Nicholas Sparks' latest feature film, The Choice, looked less than appealing based on the two minutes I saw online.  The story held no interest for me and the main characters had no chemistry, or so it seemed.  To be honest, I seriously thought abou...

Hail, Caesar! is a movie with a laundry list of greats and one glaring not so great.  Great Writers/Directors Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men), great actors from George Clooney (Up In the Air) and Josh Brolin (Men In Black 3) to Scarlett Johansson (Avengers) and Channing Tatum (Magic Mike XXL), and great set and costume design.&nbs...

Author Seth Grahame-Smith's work came to the attention of modern movie-goers with the 2012 release Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, based upon his book of the same name. Now, in 2016, after a couple of years of being in production with several different directors and leading ladies, his New York Times bestselling novel Pride and Prejudice ... Read More

After the end of the second World War, the world looked like a different place than it does today. Germany was no longer a whole country, it was divided into East and West. The United States and Russia were at the height of their spy game with agents on the ground in both countries trying to get the upper hand in case a nuclear war broke out. It is... Read More

Dubbed "Disney's Folly", Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs was predicted to be a major flop before its release on December 21, 1937.  Skeptics argued that nobody wanted to sit through a feature length animated movie but Walt Disney spent two years making the film and betting the naysayers were wrong.  As it turn...

I hate politics.  It's all a big smoke screen with lies, manipulation and "perceptions".   In a 2005 documentary called "Our Brand Is Crisis", they explore these themes while showing the devastating results of a country in unrest with an out of touch ruler.   In the feature film of th... Read More

Disney's The Finest Hours dramatizes the events of one of the most harrowing Coast Guard rescue missions off the Massachusetts coast in 1952.  Still regarded as one the most heroic and successful rescues in Coast Guard history, the events of February 18 inspired both book and now the film, which opens in theaters on January 29th. Based on a tr... Read More
