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, […]

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 […]

Today you can’t think of shoes in general without Nike being a part of the conversation. They are the biggest name in shoes and anyone with money to throw around freely has a pair or two of the best shoes they can get. The top of the shoe mountain is the one named after the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

“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 […]
