I was eleven years old when E.T. The Extra-terrestrial movie came to theaters.  I can remember with fondness being enchanted by the little, brown, wrinkled alien with the big eyes and glowing fingertip who only wanted to find a way back home and the young boy determined to help him.  I also remember running out to buy the best, ...

The coolest retirees you know are back!  Frank Moss (Bruce Willis; Die Hard), Marvin Boggs (John Malkovich; Empire of the Sun), and Victoria (Helen Mirren; Eye in the Sky) are once again wielding guns and kicking ass.  Remember in 2010 we loved Red – Retired, extremely dangerous? Well, in 2013, Red 2&nb... Read More

Every wonder what happens to old spies when they retire?  Do they sit around reliving the "glory days"?  Do they take up hobbies such as painting and needlepoint?  Or do they spend their days at target practice hoping for one last job to keep things exciting?   For former CIA agent Frank Moss (Bruce Willis; Die Ha...

In the making for the past seven years, All Eyez on Me finally hit theaters this year in June.  After the success of Straight Outta Compton two years earlier, the audience seemed ripe for another rap biopic, this time about the late Tupac Shakur (Demetrius Shipp, Jr.).  Built up into a martyr, the film chronicles his l...

Some of the best horror movies take place in remote locations cut off from civilization.  Just from its title, you know The Cabin in the Woods is that kind of movie - at least it seems so from the onset. From the brain child of Joss Whedon (Firefly) and Drew Goddard (DareDevil), the movie chronicles five college students wh... Read More

In 1982, Harrison Ford was running high on the successes of Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark when he decided to star in Ridley Scott's (The Martian) movie Blade Runner.  While not initially a box office success, it became a cult classic with legions of loyal followers worldwide.  With the technological advanc...

A death pool is when a group of people will get together and bet on who will die first. This concept was made extremely famous and notable in the 2016 movie Deadpool where bar patrons would bet on which of them would die first.  Whoever wins gets the cash.  Now imagine that concept among a group of friends who choose to bet on which celeb...

Disney animation has had a long and storied past.  From the original classics like Cinderella and Bambi to the newest film, Moana, Disney has produced exceptional movies with soundtracks that touch our lives.  For many years, there seemed to be a lull in Disney films but all that changed in 1989 with&nbs...

A Ronin is described as a wandering samurai in feudal Japan who had no lord or master.  They frequently became mercenaries who killed others for money or who did jobs for hire that other people wouldn't consider attempting.  In 1998, Robert De Niro (Raging Bull) starred in a film called Ronin, however, there were no traditional Samurai in...

There are always "nanny horror stories" in the news.  Babysitters who abuse their charges, steal things, etc. and in 1992 movies took it to another level with the story of a nanny our for revenge in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle starring Rebecca De Mornay (Risky Business).  Twenty-five years later we have another tale...
