Overlord, which hails from producer JJ Abrams, is not your typical World War II film. While at first, when the film opens up to a scene we have seen many times before - soldiers on a plane waiting to jump to their targets - the story seems normal, however, once the soldiers hit the ground, we quickly learn that this is no routine mission.Led by Ser...

Robin Hood. The name invokes different images and different stories depending on who you ask. Either it's the Earl Flynn Robin Hood, the Disney cartoon, the comedy spoof by Mel Brook, The 1991 Kevin Coster melodrama with the best portrayal of the Sheriff of Nottingham ever, or the 2010 Russel Crowe take on the classic tale. Then in 2018, to help br... Read More

When a project lingers in development too long, its ultimate demise seems inevitable.  Along the way, a veritable who's who of directors and leading players are often attached and this was the case of the latest  version of "A Star Is Born."  Ultimately, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle; Hangover; Alias) was ready to make hi...

Who wants to live forever?  The line from the classic Queen song was written by a man who knew he was going to die and was made all the more poignant after his passing.  Well, we can't live forever but some people will live on in legend and legacy.  Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara) is certainly one of those people and 27 ye...

Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) had a string of hit action movies in the 1970s and 1980s but those hits waned by the latter part of 1980s and he didn't make movies for a few years.  Then in 1993, he starred in another action film called Cliffhanger. Based in the mountains of the Northwestern United States and filmed in the Italian Alps, the Renny H... Read More

It's been a while since we've been treated to a highly stylized film in the vain of film noir.  During the 1990's we saw quite a bit of that genre but we seemed to have lost sight of it with all the action/superhero films of this millennia.  Bad Times At the El Royale reminds us of why we loved these types of movies and what a beautifully...
