When it comes to creating a comedy, there are many topics one could shy away from, but Porn has never been one of them. In fact, if done right, it could lend to a fun and interesting story, with major complications. Zack and Miri made a porno that didn't do so well, and yet Don Jon did nothing but watch them…to great success. So why woul... Read More

Love them or hate them, you have a fairly good idea what could happen in road trip movies, before you start watching them and usually it ultimately does. Tammy, while having a little bit of originality fails to make the most of itTammy is Melissa McCarthy's (The Heat, Mike and Molly) latest character creation for the big screen.  She is a woma...

And I know it's trueThat visions are seldom all they seem….. When it comes to the tale of Sleeping Beauty, the previous visions are definitely not what they have seemed. With the current release of Disney's "Maleficent", it seems as if the fairytale of our youth was a simplified, one sided tall tale. Yes, as we all know, t... Read More

(Nathan M Rose)  05/22/2014 11:42 AM EDT
X-Men: Days of Future Past can best be summed up with a quote from one of my favorite movies, Total Recall (1990). "I've got to hand it to you… that's the best mindf**k yet." However, just simply stating this quote is taking the easy way out when trying to write a review of one of the most head-spinning comic book movies to dat... Read More
