STUFF THAT POPS INTO TONY’S BRAIN…

AND VARIOUS OTHER THINGS

“JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION” DID NOT HIT THE MARK THAT OTHERS HAVE

This Summer has been ripe for major hit movies at the theaters. Most of them are sequels and some of them are spanning decades of time to bring you your favorite characters back to the big screen. We started the season with “Dr. Strange In the Multiverse of Madness” making a huge Marvel splash as […]

MIKE MEYERS “THE PENTAVERATE” MISSES THE COMEDY MARK WHILE STRIKING AT CONSPIRACIES

To be clear I am a big Mike Meyers fan. When he was on Saturday Night Live there wasn’t much he couldn’t make funny and a pop culture reference. “Wayne’s World” showed that you can at times take something funny in a sketch comedy and make it a major movie hit. Not everything he did […]

“TOP GUN” PUT US IN THE DANGER ZONE AND “TOP GUN: MAVERICK” TAKES US BACK PERFECTLY

This review is kind of a double dip in that you should stream and also hit the theaters. If you’ve ever felt the need for speed. If you’ve ever done a fly by in your vehicle. If you’ve ever gotten into a sticky situation and whispered, “Talk to me, Goose.” If your ego has ever […]

REBEL WILSON AND CAST SHINE IN “SENIOR YEAR”

There are a number of movies out there where the main character has a trip to the future or body shift to a different age or a different timeline. “Freaky Friday”, “Big”, “13 Going On 30”, “Family Man”, “A Christmas Carol” ….. the list goes on in different manners and directions including kids being put […]

“MOON KNIGHT” ON DISNEY+ IS A BIT OF A DEPARTURE FROM SUPERHERO SHOWS

When does a superhero show not feel like a superhero show? When you barely see the superhero is the current answer. Marvel and Disney have been masterful in making their movies with a theme involved instead of just heroic antics played out on screen. I mean, they do happen eventually, but the movies are successful […]

STREAM A FEW MARVEL SHOWS BEFORE YOU SEE DR. STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS

The Marvel train just keeps on rolling and putting out hits. There have been only a few dips in the upwards climb of the timeline that represents their releases. Even when you think they have gone a step too far in their storytelling with characters too far outside the normal they make another hit out […]

YOU SHOULD SWIPE RIGHT ON “The Tinder Swindler” AND TAKE WARNING

People have been cheating others out of their money or other property since the dawn of time. It’s human nature to want things and try to find ways to get them even if they are devious means. Whether you carry through with them is a totally different manner. Folks will routinely say that you can’t […]

“THE TEN COMMANDMENTS” IS BEST WHEN STREAMED YEARLY

Every year since I was young I have watched “The Ten Commandments” starring Charlton Heston, Yul Brenner, Yvonne DeCarlo, and Anne Baxter. I find it one of the most fascinating movies ever filmed for a few reasons that my wife bemoans every year. Of course, nowadays I need to take a picture of a scene […]

“The Outlaws” Is The Drama Or Comedy You Didn’t Know You Needed

There is one question to answer with the series “The Outlaws” on Amazon Prime: can the writer/creator of an American drama about a biker gang and the writer/creator/producer of the British version of a popular comedy get together and make a great show? I had to wonder when I saw the trailer for it and […]

“WORST ROOMMATE EVER” WILL MAKE YOU RETHINK YOUR LIVING SITUATION

As we grow up and and get ready to leave the nest that our parents have built for us we start to think about our next step. Whether you were going on to college or if you were going straight to the work force usually finances are tight and getting your own place requires a […]

NETFLIX MOVIE “HOME TEAM” DOESN’T INSPIRE ANYTHING

I had stayed away from the film “Home Team” on Netflix for a few reasons. First, it is a somewhat a true story. It isn’t an in depth look into it’s subject and the trials and tribulations of their story. It looked like it would be a comedic look at the subject which immediately gives […]

THE STORY OF ANNA DELVEY IS A TWISTED TALE THAT WILL KEEP YOU GUESSING

There is nothing that annoys me more in the world of celebrities than those that are famous for just being rich or famous for all the wrong reasons. There is a huge difference in the entertainment world between those that are talented and use their talent to entertain us and then make money off it […]

THE ADAM PROJECT IS A FAMILY MOVIE WITH HEART AND HUMOR

The last few years the movie theaters have and will be filled with stories around time travel and multiple universes. While the Marvel Universe is centered around it the DC universe is about to open their version of it. After growing up with “Back To The Future” and its simple explanation of time travel we […]

THE BATMAN. NOT A SUPERHERO STORY OR STYLE YOU’RE USED TO

Superhero movies have a problem at times and that is introducing the entire audience to the character. How they came to be. What their motives are. Who are they when they’re not being a superhero. This is because when these movies hit the theaters they need to be accessible to everyone that shows up and […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: KIMI

In our world of being surrounded by technology we all have the concern that we are being constantly listened to. We have all had a moment where we talk about something and suddenly, we keep getting ads for that item popping up on our screens. Who’s listening? What do they want? When did I talk […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: PEACEMAKER

The last decade has been full of movies based on comic books and superheroes. Some have been epic and sprawling over several movies capturing not just longtime comic book fans, but appealing to people an audience that didn’t even know who these characters were. Marvel has ruled the box office with their tales of the […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: MURDERVILLE

There are a slew of shows streaming on services that are basically your usual fair. Sitcoms, dramas, documentaries, and comedies cover what you would expect to find. When it comes down to it we want to stay in those comfort zones like being wrapped in a warm blanket on a cold winter’s day. At times, […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: IN SUPPORT OF TUBI

I’m taking a slight deviation from talking about a specific movie or show this week. Mostly it’s because they don’t have much programming that is catching buzz right now. Netflix, Disney +, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Paramount, HBO Max ….. you’ve heard of them all. The big names in movie and TV streaming services that dominate […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: BEING THE RICARDOS

For generations we have been blessed with the comedy of Lucille Ball. I say it that way because whether you watched it when it first graced prime time television or grew up watching it in syndication on an afternoon after school you know who she is. There are families that still share the show “I […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: SCREAM (2022)

“Do you like scary movies?” It’s been a pop culture catchphrase for the last 25 years making people afraid to answer the phone while home alone. As much as Freddy, Jason, and Michael have been the pinnacle of horror movie royalty few have pierced that level of popularity as much as Ghostface. The masked killer […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: THE 80s TOP TEN

Back when things were totally tubular, awesome, or gagged you with a spoon the world was a much simpler place to live. There was no social media unless you had call waiting or two way calling on you home phone. Text messaging was a folded piece of paper being passed around class. Those of us […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: DON’T LOOK UP

Movies can be simply for entertainment and escapism. You sit down and simply disappear into the story and remove all disbelief in order to be entertained. Usually these are referred to as “popcorn” movies and they are full of action or comedy, and aren’t considered in the Oscar race. They’re just good fun! On the […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME (SPOILERS)

OK, it has been out for a couple weeks, so you have fair warning if I spoil anything for you. You’ve been warned twice. Over the years there have been characters that have had movies on top of movies made about them. James Bond is by far the top of the heap since they have […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: RED NOTICE

This weekend there was a certain movie that may have shattered a number of box office records with it’s arachnid themed superhero. In my avoid-all-spoilers-on-social-media mode ( because I couldn’t go see it this weekend) I delved into a movie that I think would have done pretty well in theaters too had it been released […]

CROSS THE STREAMS: 8-BIT CHRISTMAS

We have all been there staring at that one Christmas gift that we have at the top of our list as a kid. For me it was a yearly struggle to look through the toy catalogs and circle the gifts I wanted the most. I had many action figure based toys to choose from with […]
