The saying goes…be careful what you wish for, you may just get it.  To put it another way, if you get what you think you wish for you may be disappointed with the results.  Sometimes, it's better to just be satisfied with and grateful for what you have already instead of trying to "fix" things.   This lesson plays ou...

What do you need to spin a yarn about teenagers in danger, that twists the usual Slasher/Comedy film in some unique way, yet stays true to the original genre?Simple. First, you borrow every cliché in every film of its type that came before it and blends it into a slickly shot, gory, playtime piece that your projected audience is both used to... Read More

Bonnie and Clyde were probably two of the most notorious criminals of the great depression error who died together in 1934.  However, have you ever wondered what would happen to Bonnie without Clyde?  What if she was only slightly wounded, hiding, a fugitive from the law?What if you were a young man living in poverty with your family in t...

How often do you see on the internet a film categorized as Horror/Comedy? It's a rare event indeed as one would not normally think of those two film genres together.  Some might argue that the Scream franchise has some hints of comedy in them but not enough to label them as such.  Interestingly, Happy Death Day is listed as Horror/Mystery...

So many childhood fairytales began in some semblance of reality.  The basis for these stories were real people – both good and evil- and how other imaginations of those individuals evolved into beloved bedtime stories.  But what if the character weren't just based on real people but real people became characters?  This...

There is a saying that starts, "the love of a good woman…", which makes one wonder what is it that love could do. Could it heal a sick person?  Could it turn someone evil? Or perhaps it could make someone change their illegal ways and want to become a better person.  The thought is a noble one, but could it really happen?... Read More

With the ever-growing population and advancements in medicine, people tend to live longer than they did in the past.  This has created the need for more and more nursing homes and assisted living facilities, which seem to spring up constantly (especially where I live in South Florida).  It is rarer these days to find multiple generations ...

Director Christopher Nolan (Inception) has always wanted to make a James Bond-type spy thriller. We saw him toy with the idea in The Dark Knight Rises, and finally this year, a year riddled with issues, Tenet, Nolan's take on a James Bond story, comes to the theaters during a crazy time in the world.Tenet is a very hard film to define (which is why...
