We all know the story of Moses. Born a slave, grew up in the home of the Egyptian Pharaoh and eventually led the Jewish people out of slavery.   If you are over the age of thirty you can remember watching Charlton Heston (Ben-Hur) playing the role in The Ten Commandments.  Now Director Ridley Scott (Prometheus, Alien) has created his...

Recently I watched two sequels on Blu-ray - Dumb and Dumber To and Horrible Bosses 2. The latter was the better of the two films, but that isn't saying much.  The aptly named Horrible Bosses 2 IS horrible and boring to boot. Once again Nick (Jason Bateman; Arrested Development), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis; We're The Millers) and Dale (Char...

When Disney released Big Hero 6 in 2014, they only slightly altered their successful animated movie formula.  Yes, it is funny.  Yes, there is a cute non-human friend guaranteed to offer mass merchandising appeal.  Yes, there is a terrible villain who must be stopped.   The only thing missing was the beautiful princess and ...

"You don't need money, don't take fameDon't need no credit card to ride this trainIt's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimesbut it might just save your lifeThat's the power of love" It's amazing how something can just whisk you off in time. Hear those lyrics and what do you think? July 3rd 30 yea... Read More

Lets get this out the way first Dumb and Dumber To is …well….dumb, I mean REALLY dumb. However, if you are familiar with the original Farrelly Brothers film, Dumb and Dumber (1994), you would except this. The story is pretty simplistic. After twenty years of Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey; Ace Ventura, The Mask) pretending to be cat... Read More

Ok I admit it…I read the books. Well, I haven't finished the third one yet but I figure I still have time before they make it into a movie.   Of course I'm speaking of the fan fiction turned novel turn major motion picture juggernaut that is Fifty Shade of Grey.  From the moment the film adaptation was announced t...

It's true what they say - you can't choose your family.  And when that family is Greek and numerous, family get togethers are bound to be loud, and full of tension.  The Slap, the new mini-series on NBC is situated around one such family and the scenario that leads to their breakdown.  The first episode which airs on Feb...

We've all had one of those "Murphy's law" kind of days – anything that can go wrong, will.   For Alexander Cooper it seems every day is like that and the day before his 12th birthday is no exception.  He wakes up to find everyone in his grade has been invited to the cool kid's party the same day as his, th...

So I guess I have to start by coming clean. Hi My name is Sean Ferguson and I'm a Glee fan. It's sad and true and no matter how far this series goes off base I continue to watch. It may be because I'm a huge music buff….or maybe it's because when I was in school I was picked on too (though no slushies were ever thrown my way)... Read More

Who doesn't love a good spy movie?  Action, adventure, intrigue and great gadgets all blending together to create an enjoyable movie experience.  Throw in a strong, seasoned group of actors and you have the makings of a great film.   Twentieth Century Fox had attempted to tackle this genre with Kingsman: The Secret Service being...
