When a project lingers in development too long, its ultimate demise seems inevitable.  Along the way, a veritable who's who of directors and leading players are often attached and this was the case of the latest  version of "A Star Is Born."  Ultimately, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle; Hangover; Alias) was ready to make hi...

Who wants to live forever?  The line from the classic Queen song was written by a man who knew he was going to die and was made all the more poignant after his passing.  Well, we can't live forever but some people will live on in legend and legacy.  Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara) is certainly one of those people and 27 ye...

The Nutcracker story is synonymous with the Christmas holiday season. The famous ballet is known the world over and has been enchanting audiences for well over a hundred years. Disney took this classic story and released The Nutcracker and the Four Realms back in November to some pretty critical reviews. Now, the film will be available on 4K UHD to... Read More

Racial Profiling is defined as the use of race or ethnicity as grounds for suspecting someone of having committed an offense and it is a problem that plagues cities across this country.  Recently a number of unarmed young, black men have been killed by police officers who saw them as a threat simply based on the color of their skin.  When...

Known as the Stephen King of children's literature, R.L. Stine created a series of scary stories from 1992 through 1997 entitled Goosebumps.  The books have a number of monsters but a ventriloquist's dummy named Slappy is prevalent in many of them.  In 2015 Slappy was brought to life when Goosebumps the movie came to theaters.  With ...

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...

(Nathan M Rose)  1/7/2019 11:23 PM EDT
Hailing from the mind of Stephen King, Castle Rock is a town used in most of his novels, and now with the resurgence of Stephen King films, Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason took the opportunity - with the blessing of the master of horror himself- Stephen King, to create an Anthology Series entitled Castle Rock, with  a cast of actors from some of ...

Giving the go-ahead to a comedy with Kevin Hart (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) and Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) set in a high school, being directed by the proven Malcolm D. Lee, had to have been one of the easiest movie studio decisions of the year.   Neither actor ever really strays too far from their standard material and you generally kn... Read More
