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...

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

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

Disney Channel has had a long history of making movies aimed at tweens and pre-teens.  High School Musical, Camp Rock, Princess Protection Project, Lemonade Mouth, Descendants, etc.  all were launch pads for their casts to move on to successful careers as adults and continued a legacy of clean, quality television programming from Disney.&...

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

Back in 1887, when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created the private investigator, Sherlock Holmes, I'm sure he never imagined the impact the character would have on all forms of media over 100 years later. From the original short stories and novels to numerous movie and television adaptations, Holmes has become a beloved personality the world over. &... Read More

Miranda July (Me and You and Everyone We Know) is a performance artist, writer, and director who has seen moderate success with independent films over the past fifteen years.  She has a quirky sensibility that comes through in her writing and directing style, which gives her a unique perspective when storytelling.  Her latest release, Kaj...

It seems horror films tend to fall into two different sub-genres these days…Jump scares/supernatural elements or blood and guts slasher films.  Either one can be very effective depending on your personal taste.  Personally, I tend to prefer the former as they are more horror/thriller than gross, bloody bodies.  However, the la...
