The Haunting Blu-ray Review
Paramount Presents: The Haunting   The Haunting Blu-ray Review

While Shirley Jackson (The Lottery) may have lacked quantity in her writing, she certainly made up for it in quality.  Regarded as a prolific author, she created images that terrified her readers while conversely drawing them into her made-up worlds.  In 1959 Viking published Jackson's novel, The Haunting of Hill House, which is consi...

Back in the early 2000s, AMC (originally American Movie Classics) aired mostly…you guessed it, old movies. However, by the latter half of the decade, they were experimenting with some original programming.  In January of 2008, they furthered their ambition by airing a new show called Breaking Bad.  It immediately generated "bu...

If you were a teenager in the 1980's you should definitely remember what movie this line is from…" Are you telling me you built a time machine…out of a DeLorean?"  Amazingly, it was thirty-five years ago when the first Back to the Future movie screeched into theaters at 88 miles per hour.  Four years later the ...

 "The Secret".  What is it?  Some would say it's all a bunch of mumbo jumbo while others believe it is almost a religion of some sort.  It centers on the "law of attraction" or the idea of "positive thinking".  Basically, if you think of all the good things you want to have happen in your life,...

When someone comes across a great story, they often think, "this would make a really good movie", which is why so many novels become major motion pictures.  Many of those stories are literary classics – Sense and Sensibility, Jane Eyre, The Great Gatsby, etc. – that lend themselves to the big screen.  Frances Hodgson...

This. Is. Sparta!!!!!  With those three little words spoken back in 2006, actor Gerard Butler (Law Abiding Citizen) and director Zach Snyder (Man of Steel) became part of cinematic history.  It all began when graphic novelist Frank Miller (Sin City) decided to write a story about the Battle of Thermopylae which reportedly took place in 48...

Little Monsters Blu-ray Review

(Leonard Buccellato)  9/29/2020 3:32 PM EDT
The 1980s were a time of no-holds-barred movies. Some of these films, like Terminator or Amadeus,  represent the dichotomy of experimental and groundbreaking movies, to be had across genres. However, there were also too many that were derivative and downright forgettable. This next film falls somewhere in between.Little Monsters is the story o... Read More

Shivers Blu-ray Review
Shivers   Shivers Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  9/24/2020 8:54 PM EDT
David Cronenberg, without hyperbole, is one of the greatest genre movie directors. Body-Horror, a term used to describe a sub-genre which showcases violations of the human body, is a genre some would say he single-handedly created, albeit admittedly the tropes existed before Shivers and Rabid melted the silver screen. However, no one director/scree... Read More

(Alyn Darnay)  9/22/2020 9:17 AM EDT
Jon Stewart, the genius behind 16 years of the best version of Comedy Central's "Daily Show" may have taken his leave from television, but he hasn't left the spotlight for a minute. Recently, after nine years of lobbying, he showed up at a congressional hearing fighting for health benefits for the First Responders of 911. Then, he showed ... Read More
