In 1932 a film about the rise and fall of a Chicago gangster named Tony (Paul Muni).  In 1983 a remake written by Oliver Stone (Natural Born Killers) and directed by Brian De Palma (The Untouchables) made its way to theaters winning critics' and audiences' praises.  It has become an iconic film that consistently shows up on "greatest...

It's that time of year again, just before the Holiday Blockbusters hit the theaters, and the distributors are pushing their leftover stock of mediocre films. "The Current War" is a prime example. It sat on the shelf unreleased for two years, ever since its less than spectacular premier at the Toronto Film Festival. However, during that ti... Read More

Here's another film reimagining from the Disney vault of golden animation, and this one ‘Rocks'. Using what they call a ‘Live-Action' technique to bring the 1994 animated musical drama "The Lion King" to a more vivid and real experience, they may have just opened up the tale to a new generation of viewers, while never changing...

It's not easy being a police officer.  Every day they put their lives in danger while protecting people who don't necessarily appreciate them, especially in impoverished areas.  Tensions often run high as civilians and law enforcement view each other as the enemy.  Many times these conflicts are racially charged and Caucasian offices...

Science Fiction movies and television shows have had a fanatical following ever since their inception.  Fans show up to conventions to this day dressed as their favorite characters.  Star Wars and Star Trek are two perfect examples of the longevity and fervor of their fan base and the actors who portrayed the characters in these stories h...

More and more lately movies have been colliding with pop culture.  In 2016 we watched as Emma Roberts played a deadly online game from her smartphone in Nerve and last year we saw John Cho look for his missing daughter through her social media accounts in Searching.  This summer in an attempt to update the buddy comedy genre, Twentieth Ce...

Director Alexandre Aja has made a name for himself with horror/thrillers like High Tension and The Hills Have Eyes. His ability to build tension and suspense in seemingly unusual situations made him a terrific choice to helm this summer's surprise hit, Crawl.  What started out as a little Paramount Pictures release trying to compete for audien...

Ari Aster is an Auteur on a mission: to make us question, and sometimes fear our relationships, family, and friends. And especially in Midsommar's case, strange cults.His previous film, Hereditary, was a masterclass in suspenseful storytelling, unraveling the plot, as the sanity of each character unravels along with it. In Midsommar, we are tr...
