Everyone should have a few good friends they can count on and keep for life and many people meet that group in their college years.  There is something about being in our late teens/early twenties with a new found freedom that makes us want to go out and do stupid things with others, which helps us form a bond with the people we are close to a...

(Leonard Buccellato)  10/16/2017 11:33 AM EDT
When Buffy The Vampire Slayer was first released in 1992 it was mildly entertaining, grossing $16.5 million from a modest $7 million budget. Looking back on this film it should have been a smash success, considering the talent attached to it. The cast included Donald Sutherland, and Rutger Hauer, themselves Golden Globe recipients. Hell, even ... Read More

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a reboot of the many versions of the Peter Parker/Spider-Man story we have all previously seen over the years.   Instead of just taking the traditional story with Peter's uncle being killed and spinning a new version from there, the writers decided to show us what Peter went through trying to figure out his Spide...

(Leonard Buccellato)  10/12/2017 9:56 PM EDT
Seeing Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler's names attached to this, I thought the movie was going to be really funny. Seeing the trailer helped to cement this thought but after watching it, it proved not quite up to the task.  The House Blu-ray from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment was released on Oct. 10th. Director Andrew Jay Cohen's comed... Read More

Most little boys and some little girls dream of being a superhero.  Fighting crime with special powers, doing good for humanity, and taking down the bad guys has a certain allure.  It's part of the reason comic books are so popular.  But every so often a regular person decides to take on the challenge, generally with disastrous resul...

It's an epic tale- two women cousins who have never met, both fighting to retain their crowns while being pushed by other kingdoms to claim the others.  It's a time of deceit, love, passion, and loyalty.  An era of two women who seemed to be just pawns in a big game of chess- but unbeknownst to the game maker, the pawns come up with a pla...

In 1981, a musical by Henry Krieger and Tom Eyen called Dreamgirls hit Broadway.  Based on the 1960's R&B acts trying and somewhat succeeding to make it in show business, it was nominated for 13 Tony awards, ultimately winning 6 plus two Grammys as well.  In 2006, Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast – 2017 live-acti...

(Sean Ferguson)  10/09/2017 4:45 PM EDT
If you've never seen the CW's iZOMBiE you are missing out on one fun show. For those of you that have seen it, bear with me and let me fill in the non-watchers. "iZombie is loosely based off a comic book series from Vertigo. In this CW version, adapted by Rob Thomas (not Matchbox Twenty Rob Thomas)... the man behind Veronica Mars. The Sto... Read More
