With the summer movie season (May to August) starting up next week with the release of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” it’s time to look ahead to what is on the horizon. Now, I’m not just talking about blockbusters, comic book movies, sequels, and remakes here, but small indie releases as well. While I could have included more films, I have narrowed it down to just 10. On with the list! Continue reading
From a news perspective, last year’s Star Wars Celebration was rather lackluster, but the 2017 SW Celebration looks to be a bigger and better show. Could all of us hardcore SW fans be setting ourselves up for disappointment with all of the potential reveals we have built up in our heads? Possibly, but I have a feeling we are going to get some big news and see some very cool trailers/featurettes this year. So, without further adieu, here’s my personal wish list for this year’s event.

With Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat’s final season on the horizon, it felt like an appropriate time to look back at my personal favorite episodes of the modern Doctor Who era. To be perfectly honest, narrowing the list down to 10 was quite challenging as many, many episodes could have made the cut here. At the end of the day, however, these 10 episodes are essentially what fueled my “Doctor Who” fandom and had me buzzing with fellow fans/friends. Anyway, on with the list (or should I say “Allonsy?”). Continue reading
2017 looks to be a big year for Stephen King adaptations hitting the big and small screen with “The Mist” (TV), “It: Part 1,” “The Dark Tower,” “Gerald’s Game,” and potentially even more being released throughout the year. With that in mind, I thought I’d take a look back at what I consider to be the best film and TV adaptations of Stephen King’s work. On with the list! Continue reading
With brand new episodes of MST3K fast approaching (April 14, 2017 to be exact), I thought it would be appropriate to take a look back at my personal favorite episodes of the first ten seasons of the great comedic cult classic series. So, without further adieu, on with the list! Continue reading
Horror anthology film fans take note! On May 23, 2017 “XX” will be hitting Blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms from Magnolia Home Entertainment. The film, for those that don’t know, is a horror anthology film with 4 segments by 4 female directors (Karyn Kusama, Annie Clark, Roxanne Benjamin and Jovanka Vuckovic). The stories include a mysterious box, a messed up birthday party, a hellish desert trip and a not so normal son.
You can pre-order the film on sites such as Amazon right now.
Note: I should have a review of this title in May.
Even though I may object to how Netflix has negatively impacted the film and TV industries to some degrees, there’s no question that they are putting out some of the best original programming period. With “Love” season 2, “Iron Fist,” and the much anticipated “Mystery Science Theater 3000” revival on the horizon, the Netflix originals only look to get even better. While we all impatiently wait for new series to come out, I thought I’d take a look back at the best Netflix original series thus far. Without further adieu… Continue reading
With the 2017 89th Academy Awards a mere hours away, it felt like the right time to post a new Oscar centric list. With this one, I thought I’d tackle the Top 10 Best Actor Winners given that this year’s Best Actor category looks to be an interesting one between Casey Affleck (“Manchester By The Sea”), Denzel Washington (“Fences”), Andrew Garfield (“Hacksaw Ridge”), Ryan Gosling (“La La Land”) and Viggo Mortensen (“Captain Fantastic”). It must be said that this was a tough list to write. I could have easily put Dustin Hoffman (“Rain Man”), anything by Daniel Day-Lewis, Ben Kinglsey (“Gandhi”), Rex Harrison (“My Fair Lady”), George C. Scott (“Patton”), Yul Brynner (“The King And I”), Alec Guinness (“The Bridge On The River Kwai”) or Ernest Borgnine (“Marty”), but at the end of the day, I went with 10 actors whose iconic performance are a huge part of film history. On with the list (which is in no particular order)! Continue reading
With the 2017 NBA All-Star festivities starting tonight, it felt like the right time to draft up a list of the best basketball movies. Surprisingly, there aren’t as many basketball movies as one might think and there are even less good ones. With that said, I still managed to come up with 10 that are certainly worth your time.
