It's just a simple, harmless childhood game, right?  Everyone grows up playing hide and seek.  However, when it becomes a real scenario of life and death, it's no longer a game.  That is the concept behind directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillet (Devil's Due) horror/thriller, Ready or Not.   The scre...

Why do human beings seem so fascinated by the sky and the stars?  Long before the Wright Brothers took to the air in the early 1900s, Other experiments with flight in the form of hot air balloons.  Many were experimenters or thrill-seekers but a few were scientists working to advance our understanding of what lays above us.  One such...

(Leonard Buccellato)  12/4/2019 11:20 AM EDT
For a show that has won 260 awards, 59 of which were Emmys, and countless accolades and praise, it has received more than its fair share of slings and arrows, too. Most of which came during this last season.Game of Thrones was the darling of its fan base, not to mention most of the critics, as well. That is, until the rushed and much-maligned Seaso...

Why is it that the powers that be in Hollywood think that almost every novel should be turned into a major motion picture?  Sometimes the outcome is worthy of the original work but more often than not the results are less than stellar. Part of the problem is that novels usually have so many details that movies would need to be several hou... Read More

In 2012 Little, Brown and Company published a novel by Maria Semple called Where'd You Go, Bernadette. The book, which sat on the New York Times Bestseller list for a year, is told mostly through correspondence with some narration by Bernadette's teenage daughter Bee thrown in.  Annapurna Pictures bought the film's rights to adapt the stor...

Once again it is Oscar bait season and the plethora of well made, terrifically acted feature films is ramping up into high gear.  The (mostly) dramas are aesthetically pleasing, generally, thought-provoking and not only require the audience to think but to have them leave the theater feeling a range of emotions.  In her feature film direc...

In 2013 audiences were first introduced to Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler; The Phantom of the Opera) when he protected the White House and the President of the United States in Olympus Has Fallen.  Three years later he returned to the character once again in the sequel, London Has Fallen.  This year the third installment...

Who doesn't love a good whodunnit?  Agatha Christie and her mystery novels were popular for years.  Angela Lansbury got a second wind in her career when she played Jessica Fletcher on the popular television series Murder She Wrote, which lasted 12 seasons.  Murder on the Orient Express is a classic and even Saturday Morning carto...

I read a quote somewhere…"Music is heard with the ears, understood with the heart" and I thought how true that statement was.  There are so many styles of music worldwide but we don't always need to understand the language the song is sung in to sense that the lyrics are speaking to us personally. From Country to Rap to Heavy ... Read More

(Leonard Buccellato)  11/18/2019 5:07 PM EDT
In 1987 I was not ready for RoboCop. By then I had already experienced more than my share of Horror, Sci-Fi and Action films. Sitting in that darkened theater with my friends, watching the hyper-violent, and frenetically paced movie, I was struck by how it had so much more to say than just 'look at how bloody I am!'  RoboCop was making...
