Hardly an introduction is needed. When you are suddenly surrounded by the first triumphant notes of its iconic theme song followed by its inwardly scrolling vertical marquee you already know where you are being transported. To a different universe filled with exotic alien creatures, heroic stories of the past written in an epic war between good and... Read More

Cultural phenomenons are rare. Disney, while certainly no stranger to creating them, found something special in 2013's ‘Frozen'. Even if you've never seen the film (do you people actually exist?), It's likely you've been treated to an impromptu rendition of its Oscar-winning song "Let It Go" by an enthusiastic young "Elsa"...

Toy Story is an entertainment juggernaut for Disney. Having most recently inspired an entire "Land" at Disney theme parks, the decades long franchise gets a fresh revitalization for a new generation of fans in the digital age. Its story remains mostly the same while quirky characters and fresh locations breathe new life into the toys who ... Read More

There are no doubt countless stories to be told in the densely rich Universe of Star Wars. Its iconic characters, as well as its fringe ones, are household names beloved by generations. After exploring the destinies of a group of unknown rebels in the highly acclaimed Rouge One, the Disney machine churns out an enjoyable, if unnecessary, introspect... Read More

To call ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi' controversial is a monumental understatement. Opening to rave reviews and unbridled anticipation, the cultural juggernaut slammed into a brick wall of fan outrage and disappointment. Perhaps no other film in the history of cinema (save the Star Wars prequels) has split the fanbase along the lin... Read More

"Incredible"..."Triumphant"..."Out Of This World".... A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away, as movie goers lined up to witness the spectacle of "some new sci-fi flick", these exclamations could be overheard as those now initiated emerged wide-eyed from the theater.A relatively unknown director in an unch...

Few spectacles of screen transcend generations with as much cultural reverberations as Star Wars. To revel in its current incarnation is to return to its roots as an experimental space opera, crafted in the mind of a man who would come to be both revered and despised for following his calling.Spanning the gamut of nearly four decades from the belov...

As a society we grow more reliant on technological advances everyday. Predictions of how the world would look in a post apocalyptic modern era have largely fallen by the wayside as we ushered in an age of information rather than succumb to our autonomous robot overlords. But what if the opposite were true? 2004's blockbuster "I, Robot"... Read More

One of the most celebrated film franchises of all time, ‘Star Wars' is also notably one of the most lampooned. From web classics such as "Troops" ( a parody of ‘COPS' starring Storm Troopers) to the tongue-in-cheek LEGO video game versions of the films the sheer scope of the Star Wars Universe lends itself to satire. Perhaps n... Read More

Seeking Justice Theatrical Review

(Eric English)  3/15/2012 9:26 AM EDT
In the gritty underbelly of "post-Katrina" New Orleans, crime is rampant. There are those on both sides of the law, and some who subscribe to neither. The levees are repaired but the heart and soul of the city is lost. Would be vigilantes who seek to clean up the streets by whatever means necessary emerge from the shadows to recruit more ...
