M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) is known for his dramatic thrillers that offer a twist.  He usually keeps the audience guessing as to what is really going on and reveals the truth at the end, often to the surprise of the viewers.  In 2000 he presented fans with a different type of "superhero" story in Unbreakable starring S...

When Deadpool made its way to theaters on 2016 it did so with a hard R rating much to the studio's and parents' chagrin.  It was only natural when the sequel arrived that it too would have that same R rating and be inappropriate for children.  In fact, part of what audiences like so much about the films and the character is his crass deme...

Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) had a string of hit action movies in the 1970s and 1980s but those hits waned by the latter part of 1980s and he didn't make movies for a few years.  Then in 1993, he starred in another action film called Cliffhanger. Based in the mountains of the Northwestern United States and filmed in the Italian Alps, the Renny H... Read More

It's been a while since we've been treated to a highly stylized film in the vain of film noir.  During the 1990's we saw quite a bit of that genre but we seemed to have lost sight of it with all the action/superhero films of this millennia.  Bad Times At the El Royale reminds us of why we loved these types of movies and what a beautifully...

Ninety years ago, as a female in this country, I would not have been able to write this review and have it published.  Those doors would have been closed to me.  Even sixty years ago some of those doors still were not open to women as we were expected to stay at home and take care of our husband and children.  When Ruth Bader Ginsbur...

Richard Wershe Jr. (newcomer Richie Merritt) was born on July 1969 but never stood a chance at having a normal life.  He lived in Detroit, Michigan with his father, who sold guns illegally, and his drug addict sister.  At fourteen years old he became the youngest ever FBI informant but was abandoned when three years alter he was arrested ...

Actor/ Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) is known for his quirky, offbeat comedies so it's no surprise that he decided to tackle Darcey Bell's dark comedy/thriller A Simple Favor.  Outwardly, It seems like a perfect match as he infuses his personality into every thread of the movie but there is a seriousness that permeates which is some...

In order to bring us the thriller Venom, Columbia Pictures, Sony, and Marvel worked in conjunction and from the previews, Venom looked like the typical alien type scary movie.   I was very unsure of how it would set itself apart from all the other alien movies but Venom brings out the alien in everyone and is actually a carefully scripted cohe...

Racial profiling is an issue that seems to be plaguing this country more and more in the past few years.  Young, male minorities end up on the wrong side of an argument and are senselessly killed when a person in authority pulls a gun unnecessarily.  We have seen numerous news reports about it happening and several films based on this typ...

Semper Fidelis – Always Loyal… That is the motto of the United States Marine Corps.  Unless you have served as a Marine, you cannot really understand what that means.  Up until now, our perception of what being a marine is like is what we have seen in the media.  Movies like Full Metal Jacket and Born on The 4th of July ...
