The sun is setting, the car is parked on a slight incline as a boxy metallic speaker hangs precariously from the window, and at the edge of the lot sits a monolithic white screen. Outside, kids run to and fro, making new friends while eyeing the junk food at the concessions stands. Teens park in groups, loud and rambunctious, while others sit off in the back of the lot waiting for darkness for their chance to grope and neck. Somewhere on the screen, aliens are landing, zombies want more brains, and scantily clad women are fleeing in terror from the latest stalker. The plots are bad, the acting... Read More

One of my all-time favorite films is This is Spinal Tap. The movie is more than twenty years old, but still stands up to the test of time. This is Spinal Tap (1984) is the hilarious rock / mockumentary about the trials and tribulations of a semi-fictional heavy metal band. Michael McKean (as David St. Hubbins, named after the patron saint of quality footwear), Christopher Guest (as Nigel Tufnel) and Harry Shearer (as Derek Smalls) first appeared together in a 1978 ABC comedy special, The TV Show. The band is fictional, because these guys are comic actors, but by doing concerts and releasing... Read More

I love gangster movies. Ever since I saw The Godfather when I was 8th grade, I've been enamored with the whole genre. Here are my top five favroite gangster movies of all time: 1.) The Godfather (1972): Any conversation about gangster films has to start with a discussion about this movie. Based on the novel by the late Mario Puzo and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, The Godfather is so much more than a film about an aging patriarch (Marlon Brando as Don Corleone) transferring control of his crime family to his youngest and least-likely son (Al Pacino as Michael Corleone). The richness of... Read More

If you've been in the loop of what's hot, what's new and what is the latest and greatest, you must have been in earshot of several discussions of the great "Secret". But what is the Secret? It started as a small production that was mainly passed along through the internet in 2006. Eventually, by word of mouth and "power of mind", it began to pick up steam almost exponentially. Currently, the DVD has just started being sold in stores and was recently featured on Oprah. It has now become a near-phenomenon. Sales have sky-rocketed and stores can barely keep copies on the shelves. What is all... Read More

Will Smith's new movie opened this week, "Pursuit of Happyness." Prior to going, I looked up this movie to read the reviews and one review in particular caught my eye, it said, "dangerously close to being a movie about homelessness." It was a wonderful movie! The emotions, pain, sense of helplessness, the desire to succeed came through. It had a happy ending. I won't go too much into detail, in case you want to see it, but I felt an amazing connection to this movie. I saw myself in this character. Having moved out of my home at an early age to make my way in the world, I was not prepared... Read More

I recently came a across a small gem, hidden amongst the other “foreign” films carelessly tossed on a secluded shelf, collecting dust. I have usually been forced to buy certain hard to find movies before ever seeing them because the local Hollywood Video has a more main stream selection. The cover was quite striking and that is usually a good precursor. The word Irreversible runs vertically down the left side of the cover with a woman standing to the right of it. That woman was what caught my attention. In front of a black backdrop, cast in shadow, staring, longingly maybe, off into the distance.... Read More

We rifled through his slide out VHS drawers and absorbed all the classics: Terminator, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Stand by Me, Mad Max - the list goes on. One afternoon as I was going through the massive collection of films, I pulled one out from the darkest corner of the shelf. The cover? A Chainsaw wielding madman; "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre". Now, before I continue allow me to extend a slightly digressive preamble. I was a morbid child. Without any particular outside influences, my interests were involved in monster books, monster illustrations and monster folklore (anyone remember... Read More
