Kevin Patrick Smith (Clerks) was born and raised fifteen minutes from me in Monmouth County, New Jersey, and is a mere six months older than me (yet abundantly more financially successful).  When his first feature film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, won two awards and later screened at the Cannes International Film Festival, where it c...

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

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...

Bill & Ted Face the Music   Bill & Ted Face the Music Blu-ray Review

In the mid-1980s Comedians Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon started doing a stand-up routine in which they played two, bodacious dudes called Bill & Ted.

The more things change…the more they stay the same.  There was a time in the United States when African Americans were seen as property instead of human beings.  A time when the northern states and the southern ones disagreed about slave ownership which ultimately led to war.  There are some who still hold these beliefs today,...

"Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot".  So begins the John Milton (Paradise Lost) poem about the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when Guy Fawkes, along with a group of fellow soldiers, decided to assassinate King James I by blowing up P...

It's hard to believe it has only been seven years since we were introduced to Elsa (Idina Menzel; Rent), Anna (Kristen Bell; The Good Place), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff; Hamilton: An American Musical), and Olaf (Josh Gad; Beauty and the Beast) in Disney's blockbuster, animated film, Frozen.  In a short time, the franchise has grown to epic propo...
