The Countdown: Top Ten Movies Set at Sea

The Countdown: Top Ten Movies Set at Sea

| October 11, 2016

I thought it would be difficult to come up with a list of movies set mostly at sea.  A couple of obvious ones popped right into my head, but I wasn’t sure I would be able to fill out a list of 10 that I really liked.  After some research, I was able to find […]

The Accountant

The Accountant

| October 7, 2016

If Jason Bourne and John Wick became sexually involved, and chose to become parents, they face a few challenges. First, how do two men have a child? Well they could adopt but what if they wanted something a little more personal than that? Something that truly came from them. Well, we now have a science […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Denzel Washington Movies

The Countdown: Top Ten Denzel Washington Movies

| October 5, 2016

Denzel Washington.  One of the great actors of our time.  His work truly does speak for itself, so let’s get right to it, but first, I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I have not seen Malcolm X, or Philadelphia.  Both are supposedly film classics and important, but I haven’t managed to make the time […]

101 Sci-Fi Movies You Must See Before You Die

| October 4, 2016

In this day and age, any list-format book is, by definition, going to go out of date the second the text is locked, often quite a while before publication. The current version, edited by Steven Jay Schneider, is an update of the 2009 edition, which itself ended with the 2006 film Children of Men. This […]

| September 27, 2016

Fall has finally arrived. With it comes cooler temperatures, falling leaves, and pumpkin spiced everything. More importantly, the coming of fall means the arrival of Halloween. Halloween is more than just a single day at the end of October. It’s a way of being, a lifestyle. Halloween means horror movies, and lots of them. Whether […]

An Interview with Rob Cannan and Ross Adam

An Interview with Rob Cannan and Ross Adam

| September 23, 2016

The complexities of how we create and consume narrative are compellingly explored in Rob Cannan and Ross Adam’s documentary The Lovers and the Despot. The story follows South Korean filmmaker Shin Sang-ok and actress Choi Eun-hee who meet and fall in love in 1950’s post-war Korea. In 1978, after a string of successful films bringing […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Movie Cameos

The Countdown: Top Ten Movie Cameos

| September 19, 2016

One thing I really hated about the latest Ghostbusters movie was the forced cameos throughout.  Except for Ernie Hudson, who I think was a good payoff at the end.  Bill Murray’s role was underwhelming, Dan Aykroyd’s cab driver appearance made no sense, I barely noticed Annie Potts until she screamed “what do you want” for […]

The first of these double features includes The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958) and The Curse of the […]

The Monster of Piedras Blancas

The Monster of Piedras Blancas

| September 10, 2016

Clocking in at a positively brisk running time of an hour and eleven minutes, The Monster of Piedras Blancas (1959) is a bite-size blast of a creature feature from director Irvin Berwick (Malibu High (1979)). In it, a cave-dwelling monster goes on a rampage, decapitating and draining the blood from the inhabitants of a seaside […]

The Transformers: The Movie (30th Anniversary Edition)

| September 9, 2016

I’ll admit this right off the bat: I’ve been a fan of the animated series, The Transformers (1984-1987), since as long as I can remember. I owned the big box VHS tapes as a child, as well as a sizable collection of the action figures. I bought all the seasons on DVD as they were […]
