In 2011 New Line Cinema's unleashed a movie that most of Middle America could relate to entitled Horrible Bosses. The movie had a simple premise. What if your boss was so "horrible" and destroying your life so much that the only out you had was to kill him? This fantasy was so common for most of working America that the act of living vica...

I don't like Melissa McCarthy. I personally never found her funny. Her latest attempt at humor, Tammy, did not change my mind at all. In fact it only solidified the idea that I will go out of my way not to watch her films. Picture if you will a remake of Thelma and Louise, without Gina Davis, dumb downed to the lowest level of jokes possible l...

How to make a movie 101 – Open up a proverbial can and add a little bit of 2001: A Space Odyssey, a star studded cast, a bit of family conflict, a three hour runtime, and a horrible twist, and you have Interstellar. Interstellar, the latest big budget, big concept film from Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight), written by ...

Keanu Reeves has had a very turbulent career. It first started out in mainly comedic and dramatic roles. Then his first big action role was staring as Johnny Utah in Point Break alongside Patrick Swayze (Red Dawn, Dirty Dancing). This was followed up with smash hit Speed, and finally his most well know action films, The Matrix Trilogy. After that t... Read More
