REVIEW – Mr. Holmes (2015) is lonely

The only thing I have with the Confederate flag on it is a set of Dukes of Hazzard cars, which was the most recognizable Dodge Charger in the world at one point.  I’m… Continue reading

Actor Christopher Walken tries to have a Brainstorm (1983)

This Christopher Walken movie reaches for something incredibly deep and meaningful, but doesn’t quite make it, although that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it.  In the same vein as Tron (1982) or War… Continue reading
