Audrey Hepburn had a film career that spanned five decades and consisted of 27 films. She was not only extremely talented and beautifully, but far more importantly she was a humble and dignified class act who was able to bow out of the limelight to be a family lady and humanitarian. Her movies remain timeless, and many rank amongst the best from [...]

Noelle Review

November 20, 2019 // 0 Comments

Originally slated for a theatrical release, Disney made the decision to go with Noelle as the first live-action, original movie for their Disney+ streaming service. With the service launching on November 12th, it was definitely a good decision by Disney because November and December are months when folks like to watch Christmas movies. Also a good decision because Anna Kendrick brings some name value to the service's first original film, and also because Noelle is better suited for at home streaming than it is a movie theater. [...]

  In the grand scheme of music history Richie Valens, or Valenzuela (Lou Diamond Phillips) was a minor figure in music history, and his biggest claim to fame is that he died in the same plane crash that took the life of Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper, but his story is such a great little slice of the American dream that it makes for great [...]

Backfire (2017) Review

April 25, 2019 // 0 Comments

I’ve seen plenty of movies which required its audience to turn off their brain. ‘Backfire’ (2017) is one of a select few that also requires them to turn off their souls. Note: their brains should still be turned off as well. I had moderate hopes for a mid-level shoot em’ up based on a promising premise that hooked me in the Netflix [...]

Run All Night Review

April 4, 2019 // 2 Comments

Liam Neeson, as I have stated before, is my jam. If Robert Mitchum or Charles Bronson were still around I would have a harder choice, but since they’re not, Liam is the undisputed king of my favorite hard asses. Ed Harris is also up there, and this movie brings the two of them together as an aging gangster and hitman, both of with grown up [...]
