FFFRREEEEDDDOOOOMMMMM!!!!!!!  That one word in an iconic scene made Braveheart a memorable movie.  Released in 1995, the film earned director and star Mel Gibson (the Lethal Weapon series) two academy awards.  The story is based on fictionalized tales of William Wallis, a Scottish patriot, and leader who defended his country against ...

Forty-five years ago a twenty-six-year-old, up and coming director named Steven Spielberg (E.T.: The Extraterrestrial) took Peter Benchley's novel titled Jaws and made it into a major motion picture.  Considered one of the greatest films of all time, it was the highest-grossing movie until the release of Star Wars two years later.  A ...

Almost thirty years ago, Midway games created Mortal Kombat, a Fantasy fighting game that paid homage to actor Jean-Claude Van Dam (Double Impact).  Known for its high level of graphic violence, it not only became one of the highest-grossing gaming franchises of all time but also was the reason for the creation of the video game rating system,...

Back in 1990, Sega decided to release their answer to Super Mario Brothers with a fast, little, blue hedgehog named Sonic.  Of course, with all of the remakes and reboots coming out of Hollywood these days, it was only a matter of time before Sonic was brought to life in a live-action movie.  Originally slated to be released in late 2019,...

Tom Cruise (War of The Worlds) is known for his action movies with fast-paced, amazing stunts that, at times, seem death-defying.  After his break out roles in Risky Business and Top Gun, and his terrific performances in more serious movies like Rain Man and Born on the Fourth of July, Cruise decided to join another Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheim...

In 1898 H.G. Wells wrote a novel called The War of the Worlds.   It told the fictitious story of an alien invasion taking over the earth.  In 1938 Orson Welles infamously narrated a radio broadcast of the "invasion" but since many listeners tuned in later they missed the announcement at the beginning of the shows stating the new...

If Top Gun was released on May 16, 1986, then why is Top Gun Day celebrated on May 13th?  And what exactly is Top Gun day? Well, the answer to the first question is because the organizers of the first Top Gun day made a mistake and the answer to the second question is Top Gun day is similar to Talk Like a Pirate day where people go around quot...

The Gentlemen 4K Ultra HD Review

(Alyn Darnay)  4/21/2020 10:11 AM EDT
At long last director Guy Richie is back in the territory he knows best - the harsh, talky, violent, clever, funny, sexy, entertaining, and ever ‘British Cool' of Cockney London's underworld. It's a post-modern English pulp fiction gem of a film, presented in a way that only a master of the sub-genre can bring it to the screen; and I'm glad t... Read More

In 1920 English author Hugh Lofting published the first of fifteen children's books entitled The Story of Doctor Dolittle.  The books chronicle the life of a doctor who decides to forgo treating human patients for animals, with whom he can converse.  The popular series based in the 1800's has been adapted for the big screen severa...

Hardly an introduction is needed. When you are suddenly surrounded by the first triumphant notes of its iconic theme song followed by its inwardly scrolling vertical marquee you already know where you are being transported. To a different universe filled with exotic alien creatures, heroic stories of the past written in an epic war between good and... Read More
