Top 5 Audrey Hepburn Films

The Top 5 Audrey Hepburn Films

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.

MOVIE REVIEWS

Anna Kendrick Noelle

Noelle Review

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.

Backfire (2017) Review

Run All Night

Run All Night Review

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,…

The Starving Games

The Starving Games Review

It is a futile endeavor to review a movie directed/produced by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the duo responsible for such “classics” as Epic Movie, Date Movie, Vampires Suck, Meet the Spartans, and the Scary Movie franchise. This movie is what it is. Nothing I…

High Fidelity

High Fidelity Review

For many of my teenage years and into my twenties I was one of those dorky retro kids obsessed with old vinyl records and bands that, if my friends had heard of, they did not care about. I say that because when a film is…

As Above, So Below Review

What do you get when you take bits of the Blair Witch Project, Raiders of the Lost Ark, National Treasure, and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, cram them into a giant blender and hit “puree”? This movie; As Above, So Below. The main character here…
