A couple of years ago 20th Century Fox launched a new satirical spy drama on their FX channel called Archer. The show caught on due to its tongue-in-cheek off-the-wall humor, it's distinctive style of animation, and the fact that adult audiences found the show good enough to wind down to after a days work.  For four seasons Archer pre...

I'm always fascinated by what motivates people, especially serial killers, to do the depraved things they do.  Unfortunately for me, "A Walk Among the Tombstones" doesn't delve that deeply into the Psyches of the duo killing and chopping up the women who are loved by drug dealers in NY.  Instead it tells the story of Mat...

I think the saddest thing for any critic watching a movie, is the moment he or she sees the potential of what could have been, as compared to what is playing out in front of them. This is what came to mind when I got to sit down and watch "Get On Up".  The thing that killed me most was that I couldn't even put my finger on what exact... Read More
