Middle school…the hormones, the bullying, the embarrassing situations that lurk behind every corner.  Walking that fine line between childhood and young adult can be difficult to navigate, which is why there have been numerous films highlighting the trials and tribulations of that tumultuous time in one's life.  Of course, none...

Is awards season here yet?  I know. I know. It's not enough that we welcome Thanksgiving and Christmas along with Halloween.  Now, I'm rushing us to nominations. The Peanut Butter Falcon, however, has some strong award contending performances.  Where to even begin…Touted as "a modern Mark Twain style adventure tale...a tw... Read More

The fall season… the nights get cooler, the leaves change color, retail stores start gearing up for the holiday shopping frenzy and movie theaters start getting a variety of films to play.  Of course, there are the Oscar-worthy set plus the action films intent on getting teenage boys out of the house and finally the family friend v...

(Alyn Darnay)  11/7/2019 9:23 AM EDT
After a dearth of good films to watch, here comes "MIDWAY", a big screen WWII action adventure based upon real life events that had me wanting more when it was over. Most interestingly this is not a big budget studio film, the fact is no studio wanted to back it, saving their money I guess, for more Super Hero reboots. So this film i... Read More

In 2008 author Garth Stein's third novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain, was published and sat on the New York Times Bestseller list for 156 weeks. In 2009 Universal Pictures bought the rights and planned for Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy) to play the main character of Enzo but the movie never had a director attached and was never ma...

The 1980s and early 1990s saw a growth in action films in the United States; a trend that seems to have continued well into recent years.  Stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, Rambo) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard) were becoming household names.  Car chases, gunfights, and hand to hand combat were the ...

(Leonard Buccellato)  11/4/2019 5:13 PM EDT
PG-13 horror movies, always conjure up images of milquetoast monsters, bloodless kill- scenes, and plots which cater to an, at best, immature audience. I know this seems like a seriously gross generalization, and perhaps it is a tad judgmental, but I have been to too many of them to think otherwise. Or have I! This is not the case with Scary S...

Terminator: Dark Fate Theatrical Review

(Nathan M Rose)  10/30/2019 4:42 PM EDT
In the early 1980's special effects supervisor and small-time director, James Cameron (Avatar) had a feverish dream of robots from the future coming to destroy the present. He wrote a treatment and sold it to his production partner, Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) for the price of only $1.00, with the condition he could direct the film. Thus ... Read More

If you are a fan of dark, disturbing and twisted stories then you undoubtedly are a fan of author Stephen King.  With best-selling books like Pet Sematary, Carrie, It, Cujo, Misery, etc. he has etched his permanent place in literary society for generations to come.  With so many of his novels having been adapted into movies, he has also c...

In the 1980s the United States was engrossed in a couple of wars – The Cold War and the War on Drugs.  Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator) was also one of the biggest action stars in movies.  It was only natural to combine those two ideas to make a film starring "Arnie"  and that is exactly what TriStar Pictures did in...
