So for this movie review, I was asked to spice it up. Instead of going to see a movie in theaters, the suggestion was made that I should watch an older movie on Netflix, something from the 60s, maybe 70s. I was down for the idea until a fellow staff member kept saying, “Watch ‘Heat’ and give a woman’s perspective!” First of all, which one? Second of all, what...

The new drama “The Finest Hours” told a great story, but it could’ve been better. Based on a true story of an impossible Coast Guard rescue mission of 32 crewmembers. Bernie Webber captained a 36-foot boat off the coast of Cape Cod during a blizzard in 1952. I wish that Disney had gone a little deeper into the back story. I would’ve liked to know more about Webber...

If you cannot handle violence or graphic imagery, this movie is not for you. If you believe we live in a perfect American society, and that no government is as honest as ours, this movie may not be your favorite, but if you watch it, you may learn a thing or two about the world around you. I walked into this movie with little knowledge about its director, Dennis Villanueve,...

Every year as the month of October approaches, I begin to anxiously wait for the new batch of horror movies to be released. This year, the one that was the first to catch my eye was directed by the one and only M. Night Shyamalan. After finding out that this movie was directed by the same man that directed "The Sixth Sense", "Signs" and "The Happening" (just to name a few),...

The movie you’ll love to hate

First off all the bashing and negative publicity that this movie and book have been getting is ridiculous and unnecessary. I have not read the book and I’m sure many things that were probably important to the story were left out of the movie. “50 Shades of Grey” the movie where I was the only male in the movie theater who was not accompanied by someone else.
