In 1975 we became terrified of the water when Steven Spielberg's (E.T.: The Extraterrestrial) Jaws hit movie theaters.  Let's face it… who can forget that huge mouth with all those teeth coming out of the water as the now iconic John Williams' score played in the background.  Then in 1999 we were once again reminded why it wasn't s...

National Lampoon has had a long tradition of comedic films beginning with 1978's Animal House.  Many of these movies have gone on to earn cult status and have given us some the best comedy scenes in movie history.  How can forget tying grandma to the roof of the car after she passed away in Vacation or the numerous moments that showcased ...

Los Angeles - The City of Angels..or is it?  Statistics show it has one of the highest number of bank robberies in the country.  With an average of one per hour, it seems like a haven for those looking to make a lot of cash fast.  It is only right then that a movie about a bunch of bank robbers would be set there.  Den of Thieve...

(Leonard Buccellato)  4/24/2018 9:54 PM EDT
Horror film originality was and is a hard thing to come by. The genre is replete with derivative, and often times, unmemorable dreck. Once in a blue moon, we see filmmakers attempt to push the envelope and try something new. The Chiodo brothers managed to do just that in 1988 with the fan favorite, Killer Klowns from Outer Space.In case you have be... Read More

It was called the Wild, Wild West for a reason.  There was lawlessness across the open plains and a feud brewed between the white people and the Indians.  The American troops tried their best to keep things orderly but it seemed to have little effect.  As Captain Joseph Blocker (Christian Bale; The Dark Knight) transports dying priso...

In 1958 British Author Michael Bond introduced us to the duffle coat wearing, marmalade-loving bear Paddington.  Then in 1975 BBC television broadcast a series about the beloved bear and in 2014 Warner Bros. gave us a live-action feature film.  Last year they followed that up with Paddington 2, which garnered both critical and audience ac...

In a time before the viral spread of "news" across the [mis]information highway, the dogged determination and integrity of journalists to uncover and report truths were central to our faith in reputable news publications.  Reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein uncovered and reported the Watergate scandal for The Washington Post; ...

Have you ever commuted on a train back and forth to work every day?  Have you ever watched your fellow commuters as you did? It is a fascinating study of human nature and one that writers Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi decided would make for a great script.  As they saw the same people all the time on their commute in the northeast t...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/16/2018 11:00 AM EDT
HBO's half-hour comedy series Vice Principals was always meant to be two seasons long.  Creators Jody Hill (Eastbound & Down) and Dan McBride (Pineapple Express) - who also stars – envisioned a feature film originally but then morphed the idea into a short-term television show.  While the first season wasn't overtly funn...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/11/2018 4:01 PM EDT
Besides making feature films out of popular novels and comic books, the newest trend is to fashion them after video games.  The latest installment in that endeavor is a movie based on the 1986 arcade game called Rampage.  In the game, players choose to be mutated humans who become giant creatures due to accidents in a science lab.  T...
