“ATLAS” ON NETFLIX IS A RELATABLE AND GOOD SCI-FI ADVENTURE

Terminator. I, Robot. The Matrix. These are all movies where robots become sentient and begin to think for themselves to the point that the only way to survive is to destroy or subdue all humans. The movie Atlas on Netflix starring Jennifer Lopez is a direct descendant of these films. Where the fear that Artificial […]

SONY’S MADAM WEB ADDS NOTHING TO THE SUPERHERO MOVIE STORIES WE KNOW

There are two types of superhero movie fans: those that read all the comic books they spawn from and those that only love the movies. The comic book fans have a much deeper understanding of the characters and their backstory while those that only watch the movies only know the stories that are presented on […]

NOT SURE IF THIS STORY OF POP TARTS HAS MUCH HISTORY OR HUMOR

When I saw there was going to be a movie on Netflix about the creation of Kellogg’s Pop Tarts, I thought it might be kind of a funny premise for a movie. Jerry Seinfeld obviously had the same thought. He was creating the film and putting together a stellar cast of comedic minds that I […]

WHY “YELLOWSTONE” SHOULD BE NEAR THE TOP OF YOUR WATCH LIST

Tales of power and greed have been around for decades in movies and TV shows. Those programs were mostly pointed at a good versus evil angle where in the end the good guy won out. In the late 1970s and early 80s the evening landscape of television became the place of dramas that had extended […]

LIKE ALL ROASTS “THE ROAST OF TOM BRADY” IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART FOR RAUNCHY HUMOR

If you haven’t seen a roast on Comedy Central over the last decade plus, then you may wonder what all the hubbub is all about. A “roast” to the uninitiated is where people get together and make fun of someone that has done great deeds. Since there is nothing more that can be said about […]

NETFLIX “THE ANTISOCIAL NETWORK” SHINES A LIGHT ON HOW EASILY THE INTERNET CAN FOOL PEOPLE

Over the last few years, the Internet and social media have become main sources of how people consume information. My guess that if a poll was taken that a large percentage of people get most of their information there. Whether they watch or read the news there that they can also watch on TV they […]

DAMSEL ON NETFLIX LETS YOU KNOW IT’S NOT WHAT TO EXPECT

“Once upon a time…” is a fair way to start any story about princes and princesses, faraway lands, dragons and heroes. It doesn’t matter if the story is basically the same or not. The usual formula has a damsel in distress being rescued by a a noble man and they fall in love and live […]

“STOP BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU SEE ON THE INTERNET!”- GEORGE WASHINGTON

Recently I’ve covered new movies that have been sequels or remakes. The thing is that if the nostalgia is deep enough or if the movie is a vast improvement they make money and people enjoy them. There has always been a clamoring for shows and movies to be remade with shouts of “This would be […]

UPDATED “ROAD HOUSE” DOESN’T LACK ACTION BUT IT LACKS SOME THINGS THE ORIGINAL HAD

Remake. Reboot. Sequel. Prequel. Reimagining. These are the buzzwords that Hollywood uses when they put out a movie as part of a franchise. Rehashed. Overdone. Disrespectful. Lazy. And the most popular: why? Those are what potential viewers are likely to say. It’s never surprising when popular movies get sequels or branches off into different stories. […]

“QUIET ON THE SET” POWERFULLY SHOWS THE DARK SIDE OF CHILDREN’S TELEVISION

We’ve all heard the stories of child actors and the problems they have faced growing up. While not every child actor grows up to have financial and mental problems some have been highlighted over the years as cautionary tales. Dana Plato, Soleil Moon Frye, Adam Rich, McCauley Culkin, Drew Barrymore, and Amanda Bynes have all […]

GHOSTBUSTERS: FROZEN EMPIRE IS FUN BUT LACKS IMPACT

Nostalgia is a solid way to get people interested in a movie or show. Tapping back into an older generation’s memories is a great way to make them perk up to a project. We have had a slew of projects that are very familiar to Generation X and Millennial’s alike. A few years ago, we […]

WONKA SHINES AS IT CAPTURES THE MAGIC OF THE ORIGINAL

Remakes and sequels seem to rule the Hollywood roost. An original movie rarely seems to be produced with a few exceptions. The other thing they try are prequels to tell the story of your favorite known stories so you can know how they got there. These can be dicey even with known franchises and a […]

DUNE: PART 2 PROVES THAT SCIENCE FICTION MOVIES CAN HAVE ACTION AND BE SMART

When science fiction movies are mentioned folks thoughts quickly go to spaceships and laser guns. Movies like Star Wars, Star Trek, Robocop, and Terminator are going to be the top mentions if you asked someone for a list of movies they could name. Fantasy movies like the Lord Of The Rings also fall in this […]

SPACEMAN ON NETFLIX IS TRYING TOO HARD

The Oscars are coming up this weekend and there is a large collection of movies set to be up for awards. The majority of the movies that are up for Best Picture are on the “artsy” side of things versus being box office smashes. That does make some sense since this is art we’re talking […]

AQUAMAN: THE LOST KINGDOM IS A GOOD MOVIE IN A BAD SITUATION

Years ago Marvel made the comic book movie the premiere attraction at the theaters. Their main competition at DC comics thought they need to jump on board as well. Since Marvel was a few years into their storylines featuring characters and then putting them all in one big movie DC made a critical error. They […]

“MONSTER” ON NETFLIX GIVES THE COLDEST, MOST UNCOMFORTABLE LOOK AT A SERIAL KILLER

When the story of Jeffery Dahmer came to light in 1991 it was a completely shocking moment. I was in high school, and stories of serial killers seemed like long ago moments that didn’t happen anymore. They sure didn’t happen a state away either as far as I knew. When I heard the report on […]

JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU KNOW “AMERICAN NIGHTMARE” PROVES YOU WRONG

How many times have you watched a movie, TV show, or a documentary and figured out what was coming next? Some people have a knack for it and sometimes the show is just that simple. With a documentary you will at times know some of the story from the headlines. Unless you followed the story […]

NETFLIX’S “GREATEST NIGHT IN POP” GIVES GREAT BACKGROUND ON JUST THAT

For those that are old enough to remember the 1980s there were many shows and movies that showed it was the decade of money and power. Getting rich was a big deal and it was so reflected in almost everything. One place it wasn’t as reflected. Music. It was mostly about love and partying and […]

PEACOCK’S SERIES “TED” IS A FUNNY PREQUEL TO THE MOVIES

If you’ve never seen “Ted” or its sequel let me sum it up for you: a boy wishes his teddy bear will come to life and it does. The two become inseparable lazy pot heads with John not being able to grow up. Apparently, someone thought we needed to know how they got to this […]

THE HISTORY OF FAILURE OF VIDEO GAME MOVIES DOESN’T TOUCH SUPER MARIO BROS.

Toys and video games became the inspiration for Saturday morning and after school cartoons pretty heavily in the 1980s. Movies based on toys have been going on since the 90s. Movies based on video games have been made for close to that amount of time. All have had different levels of “success”, but most have […]

“BARBIE” HAS A MESSAGE BUT IS MOSTLY FUNNY

Toys as movies. It is not something new. When Transformers, GI JOE, He-Man, and Care Bears ruled the toy shelves they also ruled the TV airwaves after school and on Saturday mornings. So many were on TV that kids could recreate their favorite episodes or have enough imagination fuel to write their own adventures. Making […]

THE MOST RECENT AGE SWITCH MOVIE IS A HIT

We have all had the dream of being a different age at some point in our lives. We either spent our youth waiting to be older or our adult life wishing we were younger. The grass can look greener on the other side of the age fence. What’s funny is we eventually realize we were […]

HERE’S SOME CROSS THE STREAM MOVIE TRIVIA ABOUT HOME ALONE

When it comes to movies there are sometimes stories behind some of the most iconic scenes. Improvisation and sudden script changes have caused changes that have taken movies in altogether different directions. We sit and watch and wonder at times: how did they come up with that? How did they pull off that effect? Who […]

CHRISTMAS SPECIALS ARE STILL OUT THERE IF YOU CAN FIND THEM

THE MARVELS DOES NOT HIT THE SUPERHERO MARK WE HOPED IT WOULD

I am a fan of superhero movies and I really enjoy seeing them in the theater. Big screen, big sound, big impact. If I can catch them in IMAX and/or 3D that makes it even better in some cases. One problem there has been is that a glut of superhero movies have been coming out […]

THANKSGIVING MOVIE IDEAS TO GET YOU THROUGH THE LONG WEEKEND

When I was a kid there was a few things to look forward to during the holidays: holiday specials, lots of food and desserts, and no school. Network television didn’t offer a lot to watch during the unlike now when you can throw in a Blu Ray disc, find something on cable, or stream almost […]

JENNIFER LAWRENCE BARES ALL AND GOES FOR THE LAUGHS IN ‘NO HARD FEELINGS’

The days of the raunchy comedy seem to come and go depending on social attitudes. The 80s were the height of them with a massive resurgence in the late 90s and early 2000s. While they were always done for laughs, they never had a very strong cast other than a token star while the majority […]

‘SAINT OF SECOND CHANCES’ IS AN UNEXPECTED DOCUMENTARY ON A FAMILY WHO CHANGED BASEBALL

Baseball has had two names over the years: America’s Pastime and The Gentleman’s Game. It was the most popular game for decades and it has no clock or limit on innings so theoretically a game could go on forever. One thing that has hurt baseball over the years has been it’s pacing. Home runs are […]

‘EVIL DEAD RISE’ ON HBO IS A HORROR FAN’S GORY DREAM

“This is my boom stick!” “Give me some sugar, baby.” “Groovy.” If you or your weird friend that can’t stop talking about horror movies uses these on a regular basis, then you know the “Evil Dead” horror franchise started by director Sam Raimi. I was first exposed to it as a kid at a graduation […]

“TOTALLY KILLER” MIXES HORROR WITH TIME TRAVEL FOR A GORY COMEDY

The horror genre is constantly trying to find new ways to bring folks to the theater. The heyday was in the 80s for sure. It has moments of being on top again with innovative takes like “The Blair Witch Project” or the “Scream” series, but it always seems to trail off again quickly. It is […]

WOULD “THE MEG 2” HAVE BETTER VIEWED AT THE THEATER? NO.

As I’ve said, movies should be viewed in the theater as often as possible. It’s not just the big screen experience but also sharing the event with a group of people. Some movies are just more powerful on the big screen versus your TV. Some are OK to see on your TV because there’ nothing […]

“PAINKILLER” SHOWS THE DARKEST SIDE OF OPIOID ADDICTION

Hollywood at times has a tendency to make some real-life situations over dramatic. In some cases, it is helpful to tell a story and in some in detracts from what the viewers can really glean from the story. That’s to say that it loses its heart. “Painkiller” on Netflix is dramatized to help tell the […]

THE FLASH IS WARNER BROTHERS LATEST GAFFE IN THEIR FLAWED DC UNIVERSE

Superhero movies can be hit or miss depending on the character being portrayed and who is directing or producing the film. Marvel and Disney sit on top of the success levels. They had a formula put together and followed it while bringing in great talent and directors. They have had a few miscues but nothing […]

ADAM SANDLER’S LATEST COMEDY IS A COMING OF AGE FOR HIS OWN DAUGHTER

I had been seeing the trailers for You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah from Netflix here and there. It looked like some lighthearted comedy that maybe delved too much into his childish antics. Netflix has been the landing spot for his last few movies, and while they can be well made by […]

THE PERFECT BID IS A GOOD WATCH TO HONOR BOB BARKER

Game shows are not what they used to be. They used to rule airwaves at night well before they ever became a daytime staple. Folks used to gather round the “ol’ boob tube” and watch strangers win fabulous prizes, trips, and cold hard cash. As sitcoms started to control more of the viewing landscape game […]

COCAINE BEAR IS AS CRAZY AS IT SOUNDS

There are some movies that are named about as perfectly as can be for what they are about. Star Wars, Saving Private Ryan, Sixteen Candles all have great names and they never actually same the title in the movie. Then there are those named for what they are about such as Jurassic Park, Top Gun, […]

THE STORY OF WHAM! IS MORE ABOUT FRIENDSHIP THAN MUSIC

Music documentaries or biographical movies can always be a mixed bag of what you might get. They either seem to give you more than you expected or miss out on some of the more interesting aspects of the band or singer. While Bohemian Rhapsody was a wonderful film that captured Queen and Freddy Mercury quite […]

THE STORY OF THE RISE OF NIKE IS WELL PRESENTED IN “AIR”

QUARTERBACK ON NETFLIX GIVES A SOLID LOOK INTO THE LIFE OF THE TOUGHEST POSITION IN SPORTS

There is no position in all of sports that is harder than playing quarterback. None. It is the only position in sports where you have to know what every player knows and what they are up to on the field. They get too much credit for wins and they get too much blame for losses. […]

THE OUT-LAWS ON NETFLIX IS A FUNNY TAKE ON MEETING THE NEW FAMILY

One would say the most stressful and anticipated part of a serious relationship is the moment you know you will be meeting their family. These are the people that you will be spending holidays with, going to other family gatherings like weddings and graduations, and sharing your kids with someday. I’m amazed when I hear […]

THE AMERICAN GLADIATORS ARE REVEALED IN THE NEW NETFLIX SHOW

In the 1990’s the TV viewing audience was craving something new. The interest in sports was waning a bit as Monday Night Football wasn’t ruling the airwaves as it had in the past. Game shows were still something you only watched if you were a stay at home parent or were sick and recovering on […]

NEW INDIANA JONES MOVIE CLOSES THE DOOR FOR FORD AND THE FANS

There are few movie characters that are as iconic as the actor that plays them. Few where if you changed the actor that the character would become almost unrecognizable. Harrison Ford has the distinction of playing two characters that are as inseparable from him as they are from the franchises they belong to. The first […]

WHERE TO STREAM THE TOP WAR MOVIES FOR THE 4TH OF JULY WEEKEND

This week I decided to do a bit of a change up. It’s a long weekend and the weather should be great for outside activities. If you’re sitting indoors over the 4th Of July weekend it’s probably mostly to just cool down or get away from your drunk friend that won’t stop yelling “‘Murica!” at […]

GET READY TO LAUGH AND ENJOY “FUBAR” ACTION

Arnold Schwarzenegger two weeks in a row? The guy still knows how to market himself and in this case he had a documentary about himself released at the same time as his first TV series. Sure, it’s on Netflix but it’s still a series. When I saw this show was on its way I was […]

“ARNOLD” ON NETFLIX DELVES INTO THE STAR’S HIGHS AND LOWS

There is one name that is most synonymous with action movies: Arnold Schwarzenegger. He is usually the first person most people think of when the 80s and explosions on the silver screen are brought up. While Sylvester Stallone and others are definitely icons of action movies in their own right he was the absolute epitome […]

DISNEY REDO PETER PAN AND WENDY IS FOR THE FAMILY

I’m the first person that is against remaking films unless you actually make then significantly better than the original. There are classics that can never be done better and shouldn’t be even if they are, at times imitated to a certain level. No one asked for a remake of Red Dawn, but for some reason […]

NETFLIX’S “THE MOTHER” IS GOOD BUT COULD BE MUCH BETTER

When I first saw trailers for “The Mother” on Netflix I thought that it was a vehicle for Jennifer Lopez to dip into the action genre. She has been in thrillers and action movies, but this was her portraying the action hero that usually is reserved for men like Arnold and Sly. Shots of her […]

JURY DUTY WILL HAVE YOU LAUGHING AT THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM IN A GOOD WAY

I’m a fan of shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation and their style of documentary-comedy. The actors come off as real people living their lives in some mundane job and the shooting style is like a small camera crew following them around no matter where they go. What made these type of shows […]

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 3 BEAUTIFULLY WRAPS UP THE STORY OF MARVEL’S FAVORITE A-HOLES

“What a bunch of a-holes.” is what was uttered in the original trailer for the first Guardians of the Galaxy when it was coming out in 2014. It was a signal that this was not another comic book, superhero movie that you had seen before. My limited knowledge of comic books had me groaning that […]

NETFLIX’S “THE NIGHT AGENT” IS A NETWORK TV SHOW TRYING TOO HARD TO BE A CABLE THRILLER

When it comes to episodic shows being on streaming services they are typically well received. Writers, directors, and the service has carte blanche to do what they want because it’s a paid service. It’s not surprising to see big name actors and directors involved with a strong fan base online and at the office break […]

WAKANDA FOREVER DELIVERS EVEN WITHOUT CHADWICK BOSEMAN

Tragedy struck in 2020 when actor Chadwick Boseman passed away unexpectedly from cancer. It was unexpected because he was hiding it so well from others in the industry and the media.

THE MANDALORIAN IS A GREAT SHOW, NOT ONLY FOR FANS

“THAT ’90s SHOW” DOESN’T HAVE THE SAME FEEL AS ITS PREDECESSOR

Back in 1998 a show hit the airwaves that hit home for those that were born or grew up in the 1970s. “That ’70s Show” watched as a group of friends growing up in Wisconsin navigated their teenage years filled with school, dating, and what ever other shenanigans they could find themselves in. It hearkened […]

CHRIS ROCK HOLDS NOTHING BACK IN HIS RECENT COMEDY SPECIAL “SELECTIVE OUTRAGE”

March 27th, 2022 is a day that has become infamous in Hollywood lore. At the 94th Academy Awards the hot topic was Will Smith being up for the Oscar for Actor In A Lead Role for his portrayal of Richard Williams in “king Richard”. The night was a typical one for most awards shows of […]

“YOU PEOPLE” ON NETFLIX IS NEW TAKE ON A FAMILIAR STORY

When I saw the cast for “You People” on Netflix I thought it would be a laugh-a-minute movie. Eddie Murphy, Jonah Hill, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are usually good for comedy gold. The storyline is the tried-and-true story of opposing viewpoints put to the test as they become family. Basically, it’s an update of “Guess Who’s […]

“GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY” IS FUNNY AND INVENTIVE

There is a glut of superhero movies or action adventure films out there that you may either love or hate.

“WEDNESDAY” IS KOOKY, SPOOKY, AND ALTOGETHER ENJOYABLE

Remakes are always a sketchy proposition. Re-imaginings are usually worse than the original. Hollywood is a glut of rehashing old material to make a buck while usually not really improving on the original source or killing it all together. There are occasions when they do make something better or that fits within the original’s source […]

STAR WARS: ANDOR IS NOT THE TYPICAL SCI-FI SHOW

Star Wars stirs up instant memories and images of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker batting in spaceships or with lightsabers.

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

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 […]

“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.

I mean, they do happen eventually, but the movies are successful […]

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 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.

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.
