When Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg work together we, the moviegoers, are undoubtedly prepared for a fast-paced and excitement-filled movie ala Deepwater Horizon and Lone Survivor. We are also likely to be treated to an action film that is able to connect its characters to the audience.Mile 22 delivers an action-centric, yet, otherwise, flawed, thril... Read More

It's difficult to believe that eight seasons of this show have passed, and in fact, in just a few short weeks, season 9 will begin. When it was first announced that TWD was being picked up by AMC, I was beyond excited. Being a fan of the comic books, as well as Zombie movies/books, in general, I couldn't wait. Like many fans I have spoken... Read More

Clint Eastwood is an icon. There's no debate here, his impact on Hollywood as an actor, producer, and director cannot be overstated. His last three films have been about everyday heroes that have managed extraordinary feats of courage and it seems his goal is to counteract the superhero culture prevalent in Hollywood today.  I fo...

Horror film originality was and is a hard thing to come by. The genre is replete with derivative, and often times, unmemorable dreck. Once in a blue moon, we see filmmakers attempt to push the envelope and try something new. The Chiodo brothers managed to do just that in 1988 with the fan favorite, Killer Klowns from Outer Space.In case you have be... Read More
