Have you ever had a dream you wish you could accomplish?  Ever think you are better at something than you actually are?  Florence Foster Jenkins is someone who could answer yes to both these questions and her story is dramatized on the new film of the same name.  Coming to theaters on August 12, 2016, Florence Foster Jenkins&nbs...

The world of comic books has invaded the movie theaters and has all but taken over.  The biggest blockbusters in the past few years have all included men in capes with super human abilities.  It was only natural that when DC comics and Warner Bros. announced they were making a movie from Suicide Squad that the speculation and hype surroun...

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...

After a 4 year hiatus, and 9 years for Matt Damon (The Martian), the Bourne franchise returns to theaters this week with the latest installment titled Jason Bourne.   The highly anticipated film also sees the return of Director Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips) and his "shaky cam" technique.  With the original star and the...

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

If you were a child of the 80's, you will undoubtedly remember the classic movie, Ghostbusters, starring Dan Aykroyd (The Blues Brothers), Bill Murray (Caddyshack), Harold Ramis (Stripes), and Ernie Hudson (The Crow).  I'm not sure why Columbia pictures decided to reimagine Ghostbusters, but for some reason it did.Dr. Erin Gilbert (Kri...

It was the biggest drug bust in US history.  A triumph for the Federal Government that took down over 100 drug smugglers in the Pablo Escobar Ring.  For Robert Mazur (Bryan Cranston; Breaking Bad), it was a few years' worth of work living a double life and always being in danger.  It was also bittersweet as he became friends with man...

There is something very cliché about waking up in your van with your band mates in a cornfield in the middle of nowhere.  Even more cliché is when you have to syphon gas from a car to get to your next gig.  This could be the beginning of a lot of great rock drama movies; but in this case, it is the opening of the new suspens...
