This is a difficult movie to review. Almost any amount of information I give in relation to the plot is going to get precariously close to spoiler territory. So instead of a full plot summary, I am only going to give you a very limited description of the beginning and then just talk about some […]
“It Follows” is one of the most divisive horror movies to have come out in years. Some critics think it is strikingly original. Others feel it to be a waste of time. I don’t want to spoil my own review, so we’ll get back to this at the end.
When filmmakers are enthusiastic about the source material they tend to make a better movie. It is the difference between Deadpool in “Wolverine: Origins” and the “Deadpool” movie. It is what made “Lord of the Rings” so amazing for fanboys. Also, why “Max Payne” was so horribly awful.
“All Out Dysfunktion!” is a comedy/drama directed by Ryan LeMasters. It tells the story of five self-involved twenty-somethings who all live in the same large house. Although it is unclear if they simply each rent a room or if the arrangement is something more akin to a co-op, their connections and similarities are limited to […]
1987, the year “The Running Man” came out, was a time when, for reasons no one will be able to explain to future generations, people took Arnold Schwarzenegger kind of seriously. He wasn’t exactly in line for Academy Awards or anything that came close to professional respect for his “craft;” but he wasn’t quite “ironic” […]
A woman (played by Julie Andrews) leaves a convent to become a Governess to a Navel Officer’s seven mischievous children. The Navel officer, Georg Von Trapp is played by Christopher Plummer. “The Sound of Music” is from 1965 but is based in the time period of the 1930s in Austria during the Second World War. […]

First started way back in 2008 with “Iron Man” and “The Incredible Hulk,” it has become a machine that churns out quality film after quality film. Personal favourites include: “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and “Agent Carter” (TV series). In regards to […]
Biopics are an odd genre. They face many problems, including, but not limited to: is the subject’s life interesting enough to be put on film? Generally, if a person is having a biopic made about them, their lives were at least a little eventful. It’s down to the writers, directors, and most importantly, actors, to […]
Marilyn Monroe’s entire existence boils down to one iconic image from the 1955 comedy, “The Seven Year Itch”: standing above a New York City subway grate, holding her dress down from the escaping air beneath the streets. As far as Monroe movies go, though, “Itch” is not one of the better ones.
Road trips are said to change the course of the traveler’s life: they turn over a new, confusing chapter in the story of one’s normal routine. They’re also really kind to the medium of cinema. I say that with some confidence, because we’ve been catered to a wonderfully welcome number of films which have a […]
