There have been so many moments while watching movies that I complain endlessly about the lack of creativity in Hollywood.  Well, for the first time, I have to admit this is not one of those films. Out this week on Bluray is Swiss Army Man, starring Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine, Looper) and Mr. Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliff. (A... Read More

In theory, The Purge was an interesting and unique premise.  No conscience for one night.  Everything is legal including murder.  The most anyone can hope for is to survive 12 hours of madness and mayhem and for those causing it… to enjoy their freedom.  While the concept was great the reception wasn't what the ...

X-Men:Apocalypse is the latest in the highly successful X-Men franchise.  According to Bryan Singer, the director, and one of the producers, X-Men:Apocalypse follows X-Men:  Days of Future Past by bringing in the Egyptian scenes in the very beginning.  Apocalypse was the forefront of civilization and demands worship.  As he...

High fashion modeling is a cutthroat world.  As Supermodel Heidi Klum often says, "In fashion one day your in, the next day your out", and no film better exemplifies that that like Nicolas Winding Refn's (Drive) The Neon Demon.  His vision takes the modeling world and turns it into an Avant-garde horror film.J...

The 2010 BP spill was the worst oil disaster in history.  The Deepwater Horizon rig blew up, sending 210 million gallons of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico for 87 days, killing 11 men and innumerable numbers of animals.  We all know what happened. We watched it on television.  However, I'm not sure most of us fully understood t... Read More

I am Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod. I was born in 1518 in the village of Glenfinnan on the shores of Loch Shiel. And I am immortal. — With that phrase uttered in 1986, a cult classic was born that would spawn several sequel movies and a television show.That film, Highlander, is now celebrating its 30th Anniversary.&nb...

As a commentary on today's world where most of us are in a zombie like state staring at our electronic devices instead of interacting with those around us, Cell is a meaningful look at what we as a society have become.  As a movie based on a Stephen King Novel of the same name, it is a horrible mess that makes little sense.  It's taken ab...

You know rap music has finally hit mainstream when it gets its own prime time soap opera. Empire premiered on FOX in 2015 and immediately became a success garnering Golden Globe and Emmy Nominations.  Season Two was just as intense at the original, with drama in every one of the eighteen episodes in the season.  I wasn't sure how long...

Since the 90s, gamers all around the world have fallen in love with the World of Warcraft. Its fan base has reached such fevered levels that there are conventions for the series and people have even been married in the game itself. For years, Warcraft's legion of loyal (some may say fanatical) fans have been clamoring for a theatrical vision of... Read More
