Academy award winner Guillermo del Toro has a history of bringing beautiful and disturbing stories to life on the big screen.  From 2004's Hellboy to 2017's The Shape of Water, his imagination takes us to places we almost might not want to go.  This is true as well for his 2006 movie Pan's Labyrinth.  The fairy tale fantasy combines ...

The 1980s were a great time to grow up.  There were plenty of movies that one could take their kids to but that everyone of any age could enjoy.  E.T. : The Extra-Terrestrial, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Back to the Future and Ghostbusters to name a few.  In 1984 Warner Bros. brought a different kind of creature to the screen in the Chr...

Throughout history, there have been rumors of mythical creatures roaming the forests, seas, and mountains of the world.  From the Loch Ness Monster to Chupacabra and Sasquatch/Bigfoot to its colder weather cousin The Abominable Snowman/Yeti tales have been told as people claim to have seen them.  Generally, those people are ridiculed and ...

In the 1970's Richard Roundtree (Speed Racer) played streetwise private investigator, John Shaft.   After three feature films and a television series, Shaft was done.  In 2000, Samuel L.

Director Luc Besson (Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element) is known for making movies that combined drama with some action sequences.  He also tends to highlight strong female characters, whether it is a young girl following a hitman or a woman who is running out of time.  His latest effort, Anna, once again encompasses these element...

The Goldfinch is a 1654 painting by Carel Fabritius, which depicts the little bird chained to its feeder that is mounted on a wall.  In 2013 author Donna Tartt used the painting as one of the central characters in her novel, The Goldfinch.  The book went on to win the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and this week Amazon Studios brings the...

High School… some of the best and worst years of a young person's life has been the backdrop for so many movies throughout history.  Time and time again we see the stereotypical characters – the jocks, the popular girls, the nerds, the druggies, etc. all exploring and experimenting as they learn valuable life lessons and gain pers...

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/3/2019 12:01 PM EDT
Arguably, one of the most highly anticipated films of this year is the ending of the highest-grossing horror film of all time…It.  People have been waiting for It Chapter Two since they flocked to theaters two years ago to watch Pennywise the clown (Bill Skarsgard; Deadpool 2) terrorize the small town of Derry.  I suppose the "...

In 1976 Sylvester Stallone became a household name after he wrote and starred as the lead character in the ultimate underdog story, Rocky.  Riding on the success of the film and its sequel, he took on his next challenge as a Vietnam Veteran in the action movie, First Blood.  The film was well received and spawned three more sequels. ...
