In 1971 DC Comics introduced yet another creature/monster when writer Len Wein (Wolverine) created Swamp Thing who first appeared in House of Secrets #92.  Since then there have been many iterations of the character including two feature films, a live-action television series, and an animated series.  Last summer a new version was created...

From the time Edward Norton (Primal Fear) first read Jonathan Lethem's 1999 novel, Motherless Brooklyn, he knew he wanted to adapt it into a feature film.  However, it would be another nineteen years before the film actually got made.  With Norton starring in, writing and directing the film, it truly became a labor of love for him. H... Read More

Back in 1994 a little known writer/director named Kevin Smith (Mallrats) exploded onto the Hollywood scene with his feature film debut, Clerks.  The movie won two awards at the Cannes Film Festival and became a cult classic that spawned a sequel (and a third installment on the way), a television series and a spin-off film starring Jay (Jason M...

Lucio Fulci is a legend of Horror Cinema. It remains his defining work in a career spanning decades as well as vastly different genres, from comedies and westerns to sci-fi and fantasy. However, Fulci will forever remain the master of terror.The Maestro himself was often characterized as mercurial, capricious, even, it is said, prone to moment...

Beverly Hills Cop Blu-ray Review
Beverly Hills Cop 3-Movie Collection   Beverly Hills Cop Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  1/15/2020 9:41 AM EST
t is hard to believe that Beverly Hills Cop was released thirty-five years ago. Audiences fell in love with Eddie Murphy (Coming to America) as Axel Foley, a Detroit cop who has a total disregard for the rules. The foul-mouthed undercover detective offered his infectious laugh and outrageous character voices to audiences who ate it up. Three years ... Read More

In 2015 Robert Eggers amazed audiences with his feature film directorial debut, The Witch.  Eggers' talent for storytelling and filmmaking belied his lack of experience in writing and helming a movie.  The result was remarkable as The Witch was nominated for 67 awards and won another 43 from organizations the world over. When his sophomor... Read More

Judy Garland (Renee Zellweger; Bridget Jones' Diary) seemed to have a charmed life.  As a teenager, she was signed to a film deal with MGM Studios.  She acted, danced and sang her way into America's heart playing Esther Smith in Meet Me in St. Louis, Susan Bradley in Harvey's Girls and Hannah Brown in Easter Parade.  Perhaps her most...

In 2011, Julian Fellows' Downton Abbey splashed onto the PBS scene. Maybe, at first, that doesn't sound all that exciting but the millions of fans of the series will tell you otherwise. We meet the Crawley family in 1912, the day after the sinking of the Titanic. We see the family through all the trials (literally) and tribulations of being... Read More

It's just a simple, harmless childhood game, right?  Everyone grows up playing hide and seek.  However, when it becomes a real scenario of life and death, it's no longer a game.  That is the concept behind directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillet (Devil's Due) horror/thriller, Ready or Not.   The scre...

The Goldfinch Blu-ray Review

(Maureen Buccellato)  12/3/2019 9:38 AM EST
Why is it that the powers that be in Hollywood think that almost every novel should be turned into a major motion picture?  Sometimes the outcome is worthy of the original work but more often than not the results are less than stellar. Part of the problem is that novels usually have so many details that movies would need to be several hou... Read More
