10 Years: “The Aviator”

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9c1/68294143/files/2014/12/img_4981.jpgSome modern films that have run times beyond the standard time can’t make it. They’re bogged down by too much story and not an adequate pacing. The film may boast many great things, but if you’re pulled out of a film because of time and pacing, the rest really will not matter. No matter how interesting the subject of the film is. Continue reading

10 Years: “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow”

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9c1/68294143/files/2014/12/img_4967-0.jpgSome films are the lesser known types. It’s unfortunate, but it’s part of life. Sometimes it’s a good thing that these films are not so widely known, and other times, it’s terrible as the masses are seemingly being kept from enjoying surprisingly good film. They’re certainly being kept from enjoying a visually creative film. Continue reading

On Second Thought: “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)”

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9c1/68294143/files/2014/12/img_4970-0.jpgHorror classics may be horror classics for many reasons to many people, but that doesn’t mean this sentiment will be felt by everyone.

TV Movie: “Ice Quake”

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9c1/68294143/files/2014/12/img_4962.jpgBad sci-fi movies are nothing new, especially if you’re a network with the sole purpose of pushing those films onto some unsuspecting people, and those that gleefully choose to watch them.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9c1/68294143/files/2014/12/img_0406.jpgOkay, not gonna lie. Not gonna sugar coat it. No matter how long or how hard I sit and think on something to start this off with, nothing will come to mind. Absolutely nothing. I think the tumble weeds are moving in waiting to start work.

10 Years: “Christmas with the Kranks”

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9c1/68294143/files/2014/12/img_4954.jpgThe holiday themed comedy… it’s usually a ridiculous experience, never doing more than imitating that of the previous year’s holiday movies. Yet, for some reason, we, as filmgoers, still flock to the theaters or Blockbuster (way back when) or Redbox (pick your own), to watch the newest one, or finally see, as it somehow always makes the season all the more festive, fun, and happy!
