Lucio Fulci is a legend of Horror Cinema. It remains his defining work in a career spanning decades as well as vastly different genres, from comedies and westerns to sci-fi and fantasy. However, Fulci will forever remain the master of terror.The Maestro himself was often characterized as mercurial, capricious, even, it is said, prone to moment...

Beverly Hills Cop Blu-ray Review

t is hard to believe that Beverly Hills Cop was released thirty-five years ago. Audiences fell in love with Eddie Murphy (Coming to America) as Axel Foley, a Detroit cop who has a total disregard for the rules. The foul-mouthed undercover detective offered his infectious laugh and outrageous character voices to audiences who ate it up. Three years ... Read More

In 2015 Robert Eggers amazed audiences with his feature film directorial debut, The Witch.  Eggers' talent for storytelling and filmmaking belied his lack of experience in writing and helming a movie.  The result was remarkable as The Witch was nominated for 67 awards and won another 43 from organizations the world over. When his sophomor... Read More

Judy Garland (Renee Zellweger; Bridget Jones' Diary) seemed to have a charmed life.  As a teenager, she was signed to a film deal with MGM Studios.  She acted, danced and sang her way into America's heart playing Esther Smith in Meet Me in St. Louis, Susan Bradley in Harvey's Girls and Hannah Brown in Easter Parade.  Perhaps her most...

In 2011, Julian Fellows' Downton Abbey splashed onto the PBS scene. Maybe, at first, that doesn't sound all that exciting but the millions of fans of the series will tell you otherwise. We meet the Crawley family in 1912, the day after the sinking of the Titanic. We see the family through all the trials (literally) and tribulations of being... Read More

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 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

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/27/2019 12:09 PM EST
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...

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 EST
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...
