It's been a while but I am BACK! To kick things off, an apology. Reviews coming soon!!!

Film Fans! Please allow me to apologize from the deepest part of my heart for being gone for SO long! I have seen probably a dozen films since my last review, and haven't offered my opinion on ANY. This simply will not do. I am going to try to do much better. I want to…

Last night's Oscars proved to be somewhat of a turning point for The Academy. Sure, 12 Years A Slave brought home best picture, but Gravity for Best Direction?? I'm looking forward to the year where the powers that be don't cringe at the thought of a superhero or Sci-Fi bringing home Best Picture.

Film Fans, it's that time of year again! Tomorrow, The Academy of Arts and Sciences will award the top talents in Hollywood with small statuettes for the 86th time. This may seem silly to many, but it is the one thing that many in the entertainment industry strive for. It is a night of spectacle…

Film Fans... Today, I pay my respects to another fallen legend. Harold Ramis' work was known by everybody, even if they don't realize it. Ghostbusters, Stripes, Groundhog Day, Animal House, National Lampoon's Vacation ,Caddyshack, etc. You have him to thank for those classics and any film that was i...

Aww hey, wassup Robocop review?

Robocop (2014) Directed by: Jose Padilha Rotten Tomatoes Score: 50% Film Fans! Most guys seem to have a soft spot for over-the-top action films, and I am certainly no exception to the rule.

Gravity (2013) Directed by: Alfonso Cuarón Rotten Tomatoes Score: 98% Space is the Final Frontier according to Gene Roddenberry, and he is correct.
