Promising Young Woman   Promising Young Woman Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  12/21/2020 6:17 PM EDT
They say, "Revenge is a dish best served up cold". If that's the truth, then this film is a most delicious meal. It's quite a raw film at almost every visual and verbal turn and you may want to turn it off somewhere in the beginning, but please don't; ride out any prejudices you may have and I promise you a film experience unl...

Once upon a time…Hollywood cranked out one Western Film after another. Audiences loved them; they couldn't get enough rough riding, bad guys, good guys, crooked sheriffs, gunfights, lone heroes, and cliffhanging rescues. They made cowboys the biggest movie stars. Then tastes changed and the western all but faded away, morphing into what are ... Read More

What would be the best time to film and release a movie about a pandemic?  In the middle of a pandemic, of course.  That is exactly what director Adam Mason (The Devil's Chair) did this past summer while Los Angeles was on lockdown.  Songbird, which is being distributed this month by STX Films, is the result of this venture.  Wr...

Half Brothers   Half Brothers Theatrical Review

With so many marriages ending in divorce is it inevitable that there will be blended families.  Step- and half siblings have become sort of the norm, at least in the United States.  But what if you never knew you have a brother or sister?  What if your dad left when you were a child and promised to come back, but he never did?  ...

DreamWorks Animation began in 1994 as a subdivision of Amblimation but ten years later it became its own company.  Over the last 25 years, DreamWorks has released thirty-eight animated feature films.  Beginning with The Prince of Egypt, the company has had success with several movie franchises including Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, a...

The saying goes…be careful what you wish for, you may just get it.  To put it another way, if you get what you think you wish for you may be disappointed with the results.  Sometimes, it's better to just be satisfied with and grateful for what you have already instead of trying to "fix" things.   This lesson plays ou...

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

Bonnie and Clyde were probably two of the most notorious criminals of the great depression error who died together in 1934.  However, have you ever wondered what would happen to Bonnie without Clyde?  What if she was only slightly wounded, hiding, a fugitive from the law?What if you were a young man living in poverty with your family in t...

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...

Come Away   Come Away Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/10/2020 1:17 PM EDT
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...
