Brain Henson (son of “Muppet” creator Jim Henson) FINALLY releases his pet project “The Happytime Murders.” I say finally because I actually heard of this movie a couple of years ago on a list about films that were stuck in development hell. Now I’m a BIG Jim Henson fan and “The Muppets” in particular. I’m also a fan of his son Brian Henson who has directed a lot of Henson projects since his father’s passing. He was also the voice of Jack Pumpkinhead in “Return to Oz” so the nostalgic feelings I have for him are high. Sadly it all just wasn’t enough to save this film for me.Read More
Last year I did an article like this hoping to begin a new category of articles. Well it may have taken a while, but I’m back with more trailers. For those paying attention, a little event called the San Diego Comic Con happened not too long ago. As a result we got ALL the trailers. So I thought it’d be fun to run through them all and give my own takes one them. I’ll go in order of least interested to most interested, let’s begin.Read More
The thrill and unpredictability of gambling have always attracted the humans. We find the stories mentioned from time immemorial. If you have ever been to a casino, you very well know the adrenaline rush if you are on a winning streak. So, if you are away from a casino and are less on money, then it’s better to enjoy the fun on the idiot box. Or even on your laptop, as long as you got the digital version of the movie with you.
The Top Gambling Movies You Do Not Want to Miss!
It has been a very long time since a horror movie like “Hereditary” has opened in theatres. People have compared it to “The Exorcist” and “Rosemary’s Baby” and for good reason. They aren’t too far off. Like those movies, this one has big scares and creepy moments.Read More
While it seems like a commonly accepted truth, there are those that still deny that Han Solo was the first to shoot Greedo in the “Star Wars” Mos Eisley Cantina scene. Despite what the special editions of the original trilogy show, the original cut has our favorite smuggler blasting the bounty hunter Greedo away before the Rodian can collect. But whether you are an adopter of the George Lucas re-releases or a traditionalist, the latest film “Solo: A Star Wars Story” creates a narrative in favor of the “Han Shot First” movement.Read More
In 1988 George Lucas produced a Ron Howard directed film called “Willow” and a cult favorite was born. I can speak for myself that it is one of my most treasured of films. But why is that? Why did this film under perform when it was originally released but now has fans so dedicated? With a local theater the Naro screening it soon (June 1st) I thought it would be good to try and find out beforehand.Read More

Isn’t it weird that so much has changed in the world and film business and yet FOX’s ‘X-Men’ is still going strong. Almost 10 years ago the MCU started. At that point this wave of superhero movies had been going on for about 8 years and many were claiming it was getting ready to end. “Blade” proved that a Marvel based superhero film could work. Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” was where the genre kicked into high-gear. But it was “X-Men” building off of the success of “Blade” that truly got it started. We have a lot of movies to get through so lets get started. *SPOILER WARNING!*Read More
Sadly this year’s ‘Star Wars’ Day (May the 4th) snuck up on me, despite me having an idea for a while. So you’d think that’s it. Either wait until next year or just release it late for everyone to see how late you are. However, today is May 6th as in Revenge of the Sixth. I’m counting it as a “Star Wars” Day and I’m ok with claiming this was all planned. So anyway why review this? Well I find it to be a fascinating little piece of “Star Wars” media and I like sharing that kind of stuff.Read More
