Dear White People the New Consciousness (Review and Trailer)

Dear White People the New Consciousness (Review and Trailer)

Can an Indiegogo funded film, as Dear White People was, lay claim to being the new satirical consciousness of young people in a country on its second term of Obama politics? Where the characters use insults like “a Lisa Bonet lookalike wannabe,” and “wannabe Black Panthers” and one of the lead character’s does not like […]

Ouija: No Need to Tell Yourself It Is a Game (Review/Trailer)

Ouija: No Need to Tell Yourself It Is a Game (Review/Trailer)

Ouija has a tagline that goes, “Keep telling yourself it’s just a game.” In reality, there is no need to do that, the film is not that scary. While it attempts to fall fully into the horror genre it really is a combination ghost story/mystery. A group of youngsters have one of their number kill […]

John Wick: Keanu Reeves Leaving Neo in The Matrix (Review/Trailer)

Keanu Reeves is on top form in John Wick, not only giving his 1994 film Speed a run for its money but leaving his character Neo back in The Matrix in this adrenaline fuelled action thriller where Reeves plays the ultimate bad-a** John Wick.

St. Vincent Bill Murray Gives Oscar Worthy Performance (Review/Trailer)

Bill Murray in St. Vincent gives an Oscar worthy performance in a comedy that makes one think and in at least two places in the film cry buckets of those hot schmaltzy tears which are guaranteed to embarrass the men in the audience. The tears are a real surprise as the film plays its comedic […]

Gracepoint: Who Killed Danny…Really?

Gracepoint, the almost frame by frame remake of Broadchurch from the United Kingdom, is stubbornly using a campaign of “who killed Danny.” Really? The tagline is hashtag #suspecteveryone but honestly, what is the point? Anyone who has a subscription to BBC America or has access to amazon.com knows who the killer is already. The issue […]

American Horror Story Freak Show: Gods and Monsters Equals More Genius

American Horror Story Freak Show: Gods and Monsters Equals More Genius

Yet again, Ryan Murphy equals even more genius in the realm of American Horror Story Freak Show with the excellent use of anachronistic music and in Edward Mordrake Part 1, Gods and Monsters certainly fits the bill. Murphy’s creation in season four still packs a powerful punch and has enough sly humor to satisfy the […]

Sleepy Hollow: The Weeping Lady Goes For the Scare

Sleepy Hollow: The Weeping Lady Goes For the Scare

In last night’s episode of Sleepy Hollow: The Weeping Lady, the show left humor in an antiquated drawer and the episode goes instead for the scare in a big way. The plot of the episode also went for the heartstrings when it turned out that Katrina has been keeping a few secrets from Ichabod and […]
