Or do whatever it takes to please the higher-up’s, to the detriment of your mental and physical well-being? Hopefully you would do none of the above. C.C. Baxter […]

Fargo Year 3

Fargo Year 3

| December 13, 2017

Over the last few decades, Hollywood executives have mined the fertile ground of television instead of putting time and effort into original scripts. For the most part, TV’s shows do not make good feature films. Let’s take a look at 2017. CHiP’s, a popular motorcycle cop dramedy from the 1970’s, was turned into a dreadful, […]

I want to start this review off by stating I am a big fan of Steve Buscemi. His role as Mr. Pink in Reservoir Dogs is arguably the best and most engaging of the ensemble cast. His sleazy con man/thief Carl Showalter in Fargo is nothing short of brilliant. His understated yet engaging role as […]

Blood Feast

2016 was a year of monumental loss in the realm of pop culture, especially in the music industry. Icons such as David Bowie, Prince, and George Michael all left their plane of existence. Meanwhile, a luminary in the horror genre also passed on, to much less fanfare. His name is Herschell Gordon Lewis. Herschell Gordon […]

For decades, the comedy genre has been unfairly ostracized by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. In the early years of the Academy Awards, slapstick comedies were routinely recognized with nominations, as well as wins. The best example would be 1934’s It Happened One Night, which pulled off a rare feat not seen […]

Critical and fan reviews were mixed, at best. In early September, King’s novel IT arrived in theaters to critical acclaim and boffo box office. As of this writing, […]

The Slayer

“Where have you been all my life?” Most of us have heard this phrase used as either a cheap pick-up line or as a question asked after having tried a new and particularly delicious food stuff. The above phrase can also have a literal meaning as well. The Slayer was released when I was 4, […]

1985 was a banner year for the horror genre, especially for first time directors. Dan O’Bannon (co-writer of 1979’s Alien) made a big splash with the zombie/black comedy Return of the Living Dead. Tom Holland (writer of 1982’s Psycho II) took a stab at directing with the vampire/black comedy hit Fright Night. And, to keep […]

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

| June 18, 2017

The Bird With The Crystal Plumage is a murder-mystery. But let me assure, dear readers, this film is very different from anything you’ve seen from Agatha Christie, Charlie Chan, or Jessica Fletcher from the hit 1980’s TV series Murder, She Wrote. Crystal Plumage was an original, violent, expertly shot whodunit, from first time director Dario […]
