Stephen King has been one of our most prolific writers of the last 30 years. He also has a knack for thinking outside the box, making us think in new and interesting ways and scaring the pants off us all at the same time.  His novel 11.22.63 definitely does the first two and a small portion of the third.Since so much of his writing i...

The Joke Is Killed by Hype & Expectations It's the death of so many movies and the one thing most project can never live up to. It's so frustrating because fans see the teasers, hear all about the dedication of bringing out the best in the project and the "early word on the street" is that it's the best ever made.  By the ti...

In 1991, the Clarence Thomas Confirmation Hearings and its ensuing drama captivated the country.  For those who missed it, Judge Thomas was days away from being confirmed to the Supreme Court when Law Professor Anita Hill accused him of sexual harassment.  A failed attempt to keep her testimony quiet led to a media frenzy that landed...

Key and Peele have been a successful comedy duo for many years, so it seemed like a no-brainer for them to star in their own comedic movie together.  Written by Peele (MADtv), along with Aex Ruben (Community), Keanu premiered in Theaters on April 29th this year and garnered a certain amount of critical praise.  Th...

Back in 2013, director Ilya Naishuller made a short first person music video entitled Biting Elbows: Bad Motherf*cker. The kinetic energy surrounding the video and story caught the attention of film director and producer Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted).  With the help of Bekmambetov, as well as an IndieGoGo campaign,  the financing was in plac...

Oh how the mighty have fallen.  In the late 1970's, we fell in love with John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever and Grease. Then, we saw his resurgence in 1994 with Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.  Since then, he has had some hits and some misses in the movie business, and unfortunately, his latest I am W... Read More

While 2016 brought us "Captain America: Civil War", "Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice", "X-men Apocalypse", and many other films with a semicolon in its title, there were a few surprises tucked in between and one of those films is being released on Bluray, DVD and Digital Download by The Weinstein Company this week....

(Nathan M Rose)  07/19/2016 9:04 AM EST
In my opinion, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the most underrated movies of the year so far.  It had everything an adult action film should have.  It was fast paced, full of explosions, had a real plot and great CGI.  I can't understand why it received such bad reviews when it ran in theaters, but I for on...
