While The Witch garnered critical acclaim when it debuted in theaters in February of this year, it was met with less than enthusiastic audience ratings.  After having viewed the movie, I have been contemplating it, and the more I separate myself from the film, the more I can see how it would be praised form a cine...

Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games), Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook), and Robert DeNiro (The Intern) have teamed up several times on film in the last few years.  Their latest venture is a semi-true story about a down-on-her-luck single mother who invents a new way to mop the floor....

It's been 20 years since Bill Pullman (American Ultra) uttered those now famous words "Today we celebrate our independence day", and made the world fall in love with a new, timeless classic movie – Independence Day.  Now, in anticipation of this summer's sequel, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has released a sp...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  04/28/2016 4:13 PM EST
Based on the 2002 novel by Michael Punke, The Revenant is aptly named.  Defined as "a person who has returned, especially supposedly from the dead", the film explores the life and (almost) death of trapper Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio; Titanic).  While loosely based on Glass's life, the book and movie fantasize h...

When you think of holiday horror movies, you don't often think of Christmas.  However, if you've ever heard the Austrian Folklore about a horned, half goat-half demon creature that punishes children who misbehave and don't believe in Saint Nicholas anymore, then you realize the story lends itself to a creepy, horror tale.  Universal Studi...

(Nathan M Rose)  04/26/2016 9:00 AM EST
Back in January 2014, a quirky little comedy called Ride Along, starring Ice Cube (22 Jump Street, Barbershop: The Next Cut ) and Kevin Hart (Get Hard, Central Intelligence ), came out of nowhere and quickly became box-office gold. The story was simple — a hardened Atlanta detective James Payton (Cube), is not too happy wi... Read More

In 1991, a movie called Point Break hit theaters and starred Keanu Reeves (The Matrix), Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing) and Gary Busey (Lethal Weapon).  It was a surfer's/stoner's dream and has a cult-like following.  In 2015,  someone at Warner Brothers Entertainment thought it would be a good idea to remake the film but using all ex...
