Director Kevin Smith once said that the golden age of independent films has left us, and what we are left with is just big studio films created by a committee. Most days, I hold to these truths. However, once in a while, a film comes along that throws caution to the wind and surprises you.Cop Car, written and directed by Jon Watts (director of the ... Read More

I'm not sure why studios think it's a good idea to take every successful TV show and make it into a feature film. I understand they feel it will be an easy moneymaker with a "built in audience", but too many times they come into it with a half-cocked script that doesn't do the show justice.  While Entourage: The Movi...

(Allison Hazlett)  9/24/2015 11:43 AM EDT
I love history, especially legends and folk lore, so I was excited when Sleepy Hollow came to television in 2013.  The basic premise was interesting and, of course, centered around the tiny town in upstate New York and the antagonist, the Headless Horseman. That first season laid the foundation for an apocalyptic battle of biblical proportions... Read More
