Rest In Peace, Mr. Wonka – Gene Wilder: (1933-2016)

He will always be THE Willy Wonka. Yes, he was also Dr. Frankenstein (Young Frankenstein) and Eugene Grizzard (Bonnie and Clyde) and Leo Bloom (The Producers), but to me, he will always be Willy Wonka, giving a tour of that Roald Dahl inspired Chocolate Factory.  Although not nominated for that role, he did receive two Academy Award nominations throughout his career, one for Best … Read More Rest In Peace, Mr. Wonka – Gene Wilder: (1933-2016)

Starting (Certified) Fresh

Life happens. It “gets in the way” as they say. And I didn’t know the true meaning of that until these past two years. Where is this coming from and what does it have to do with movies? Let me explain. In 2009, I started this website. I was just about out of college (film school), I had begun seeing tons of films, in … Read More Starting (Certified) Fresh

Theatrical Releases: Don’t Breathe & Mechanic: Resurrection

DON’T BREATHE || Far from a horror classic by any means, I constantly reference the film The Collector, because of the way the plot struck me as original, with a not-so-good guy thief, breaking into a house to steal and finding himself apart of an even more sadistic man’s game. Now, “Don’t Breathe” comes off very much in the same way, with a group … Read More Theatrical Releases: Don’t Breathe & Mechanic: Resurrection

Theatrical Releases: Ben-Hur, Kubo and the Two Strings, & War Dogs

BEN-HUR || The way I see it, this is just a $100 million advertisement for people to re-watch the original, Academy Award winning “Ben-Hur” that this is remake of. That can be the only reason this poorly execute, dismally marketed, inexplicably CGI heavy piece of work exists. To take on remaking arguably one of the most recognizable and honored films in history is a … Read More Theatrical Releases: Ben-Hur, Kubo and the Two Strings, & War Dogs

Theatrical Releases: Pete’s Dragon & Sausage Party

ANTHROPOID || “She’s very young… still has romantic ideas about the war… war is not romantic.” You can create all the fictional villains you want, but none will ever carry quite as much weight as the real-life villain of Adolf Hitler and the subsequent war that followed. In “Anthropoid,” Cillian Murphy leads a group in an operation to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich. Presented … Read More Theatrical Releases: Pete’s Dragon & Sausage Party

Theatrical Releases: Nine Lives & Suicide Squad

SUICIDE SQUAD || Still not quite up to the standards sets by Marvel, “Suicide Squad” has its heart in the right place but still fails to execute a structure sound and coherent film that doesn’t feel like it needed a few more drafts before completion. The Joker, despite touting Jared Leto’s unforgettable performance, is hardly used, the story itself is all based in one … Read More Theatrical Releases: Nine Lives & Suicide Squad
