Gemini ManRarely does conventional wisdom hold in Hollywood. Particularly with regards to the notion that less is more and that simplicity is superior to elaborate embellishment. Take, for instance Jerry Bruckheimer, the titan of TNT, who subscribes to the theory that if a candle is needed ...

Western StarsSomewhere in Colts Neck, New Jersey there sets a horse farm owned by Bruce Springsteen.  And on those 378 acres there is a two-story barn which, on certain nights, doubles as a performance area for Springsteen, his wife Patti Scialfa, and some close friends.  The voices coming out from  ...

Giant from the Unknown (1958)

“Wayne!  Coffee break!” Everything about Giant from the Unknown leads me to believe that it might be one of the films that influenced David Lynch to do what he does with film.  You've got buckets of hot coffee, a lizard in a rock, hallowed out lodges, crazy creatures walking out from thick ...

Hellboy II: The Golden Army2004’s Hellboy was a well-received if unspectacular performer at the box office, and the studios were not in a hurry to spend on another one. Undeterred, Guillermo Del Toro pressed on pitching various iterations of what could be the follow up. Oh, and since he had some time to kill ...

Joker (2019)Joker was frightening proposition for this reviewer, who has been a lifelong Batman fanatic. Firstly because it presumed to make the focus of its narrative on one of the greatest antagonists in storytelling history, without the hero; secondly because it wasn’t going to stick with ...

Blind FuryIt’s time to unfocus your eyes!  Forgive.  Forget.  And deal a mighty ass-whooping out to all those who would seek to do you harm! Blind Fury is back, baby! ...

Breakthrough (2019)Movies like Miracles from Heaven and Heaven Is for Real tell allegedly true stories of divine intervention. The latest such movie is 2019’s Breakthrough.

Tremors: Limited Edition 4K Restoration

When worms attack! Welcome back to Perfection, Nevada!  There’s not a lot to do or see here in the desert sands.  But none of it prevents the few who do live here from being super paranoid.  There is something out there in the swirling sands and acrid heat.  Which is why ...

Rambo: Last BloodTenacious is the first word that comes to mind when thinking of Sylvester Stallone. He was once one of the highest-paid and most successful actors in cinema’s history, and, like most, has had his fair share of career highlights and—lets be kind—lulls. ...

Honest Thief (2020)

My daddy was a bank robber!  I’ve said it before and I will continue to say it again and again and again: Liam Neeson is "The January Man".  Ever since the success of Taken, he’s been in just about every January-released action flick that you can imagine becoming cinema's own Winter ...

It CHapter TwoWhen Stephen King’s doorstop novel was adapted for TV in the 90’s, it accomplished what shouldn’t have been possible. King’s novel is a behemoth tome, with dozens of characters, and was one of his truly graphic forays into the horror genre for ...

Paramount Presents: The Golden ChildThe new comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson called The Hustle is an almost identical remake of the 1988 classic comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels which starred Michael Caine and Steve Martin - itself a remake of Marlon Brando’s Bedtime Story. I say “almost” because  ...

It's a Wonderful LifeThere are touchstone pictures that transcend any generation, no matter when they were born, that fall under the MUST WATCH category. They are masterpieces.
