31 Days of Horror Movies – #28 – The Underdog of Re-Animating Dead Corpses #joebob

All my life, I’ve avoided the movie Re-Animator.  From the day I became interested in horror movies, I’ve always felt this movie was one step below movies like Return of the Living Dead,… Continue reading

Hobo with a Shotgun (2011) – Grindhouse shocker

Hobo with a Shotgun (2011) is basically crazy.  Nuff said.  This movie went from a $150 fake trailer to a full-length motion picture thanks to the vision of director Jason Eisener and his… Continue reading

Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould

Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould (1993) has quite the opposite approach compared to Won’t You Be My Neighbor (2018) as biopics go, delving into the personal attitudes and feelings of the… Continue reading

Fred Rogers thinks you’re special and that’s okay

The documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor (2018) is even better than I thought it would be, and touches your heart about a man who was the genuine article.  The reason there hasn’t… Continue reading

Red Sparrow (2018) – The Cold War Never Ended

Red Sparrow (2018) succeeds in making me uncomfortable, but it fails to develop its main character, and it has a standard, by-the-numbers plot.  This movie stars Jennifer Lawrence as Dominika (sp?) Domikia? Whatever. … Continue reading

Trailer for Searching

I just watched the trailer for Searching, out in August, and I’m impressed.  The movie stars John Cho and the premise is that he’s searching for his lost daughter, while trying to discover… Continue reading

Infinity War? The Biggest Marketing Scam of All Time?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building to this weekend for years, and the marketing crescendo lures you in, takes your money, and leaves everybody unsatisfied.  You’ve got to hand to these movie-makers,… Continue reading

Top 10 Feel Good Movies

I’ve made a list of “feel good” movies that are inspirational, moving, and meaningful, because sometimes you want to smile at the movies.  And not everything needs to be light in order to… Continue reading

The Spy Who Came in From the Cold – What does it really mean?

The Spy Who Came in From the Cold (1965) is a black and white film based on the best spy novel I’ve ever read, a book once given to me as required reading in… Continue reading

Best of the 80s: Race in Beverly Hills Cop

Beverly Hills Cop (1984) is Eddie Murphy’s cleverly disguised story of racial discrimination, which comes from real life experiences.  An early scene features Murphy’s character Axel Foley being thrown out a ground-floor window… Continue reading

Best of the 80s – Police Academy?

I think only Porky’s or maybe Naked Gun tops Police Academy as one of the most infamous comedies of the 80s, but it was a big success, proving that even something simple and… Continue reading

Best of the 80s – The mother of Aliens

Aliens (1986) is a product of an era when action movies had to get faster and faster, more thrilling and action-packed to be successful.  I think maybe this started with Conan, Scarface or… Continue reading

Why am I 100% right all the time?

I was pretty spot on with my Last Jedi predictions, I gotta admit.  Is that because I’m so good or because the movie is so predictable?  Here’s what I said in my original… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #16- Jason Lives

Jason Lives gives up on playing it serious, and I’m thankful.  So Paramount tried to end the franchise, or at least told us Part IV was the end, and then they tried to… Continue reading

Who will SURVIVE the 31 Days of Halloween 2017 Marathon?

This year’s theme for the Halloween movie marathon is the burning question every slasher fan asks: who survives?  Or any riff on that question.  How do they survive? Which person survives? Do you… Continue reading
