Have you ever wondered if a superhero has ever wrongly accused someone of a crime they may or may haven’t done. It has to happen, right. No one can always be 100 percent sure that they are doing the right thing all the time. I’m sure Batman has his doubts at times, but than again maybe not. Maybe this ideal of a perfect society is what fuels many of these individuals who put the law into their own hands.
People like Pep(Simon Cassidy) in the wonderful new movie Small Town Hero are nothing new. Being fed up with crime in his town. He decides to do something about it and stop it. At first it started with a bunch of kids breaking a store’s window and other small crimes. His methods were a bit unorthodox but hey, they get the help get the job done. Continue reading

I was recently a guest on Dork Points to watch the sci-fi feature Beta Test. It’s about a game tester who unknowingly begins controlling a real person to commit crimes for an evil corporation. It was a blast hanging out with my friends Nicole, Ron, and Ron’s dad to watch this flick and do a MST3K style commentary but I think a few of us were enjoying it more than we should. Watch the series of videos below and be sure to like and subscribe to their channel. Continue reading
Over on The Large Association of Movie Blogs aka The LAMB. I put forth Species to win Movie of The Month for a special franchise edition. Up against the original Star Wars trilogy, Cars, the Dollars saga(Fistfull…, A Few Dollars…, The Good The Bad…) and more I never thought. I would win. But I did and I was on a special episode of The LAMBcast discussing that flick. That show should be posting this week so be on the lookout for it. It was fun. I’m going to be giving you my short reactions to each movie. Continue reading

When you mention the name Harmony Korine. Right away there will be many people there that will avoid this movie at all cost. The Director of Spring Breakers and Gummo certainly has a distinct style and the man has his fans but certainly a lot of haters as well. His new movie The Beach Bum will be no different and I won’t fault anyone for not liking this flick. But I can’t lie and say I did not have fun with this one, folks. Does it have problems. Oh Yes. Yes it does, but it’s still very funny. Matthew McConaughey shines in the lead role as Moondog and the supporting cast including Snoop Dog, Isla Fisher, Martin Lawrence, Jimmy Buffett and more are all very good.

Hello gang how are ya?
Well I have been kind of shitty this past week. I lost my voice over the weekend so I had to postpone recording a recent episode of Cinema Recall. It’s been several days and I still haven’t gotten it back yet. Couldn’t even go to work because my job requires the use of my voice. So I thought this would be a good time to comment on a few trailers and short films I saw. Continue reading

Only a company like Disney could sell you something that you have already seen before. With the recent trailers for the live action versions of Aladdin and The Lion King trending on social media. I have to ask myself, why? Not why are they doing it. That parts easy, it’s the money. Why are so many people fascinated with watching these updates of movies we have seen. Continue reading

After A very long hiatus, I am back. Well sort of? I want to keep this site updated weekly with something movie related. It can be a sort review or thoughts about going to the theater, something. I will say that after 2018, I no longer am going to care what movies win the big awards or have the largest box office sales. I’m only going to look at movies that I want to see. I say this because many of the movies I enjoyed from that year such as Sorry to Bother You and Assassination Nation never had any box office success or much critical acclaim either. However it has been a long time since I last wrote any thing on here and since the last time I wrote I have see some features I would like to share with you. Continue reading

How a film look is just as important as the screenplay, the sound, the acting , the directing and sometimes even more. A Cinematographer’s job is to make the images the director has in her or his mind come to life on the big screen and it’s never an easy task While there were certainly tons of movies that should have been picked for this list like First Man, Suspiria, Upgrade, Thoroughbreds, Assassination Nation, and Black Panther. Here are the five nominated movies from least to most likely to win on February 24th for the Academy Awards. Continue reading
I still do reviews and posts on here but it ain’t what it used to be. As you know I mainly write reviews and edit podcasts for That Moment In. I was even asked by the owner of another site to help out with their podcast. On top of that I am working on tracks for a CD to be released in the summer. The band is called V.V.C. which stood for Vile, Violence and Chaos or Vivian, Verm and Chum. After Chum passed away last year, we found a replacement named Andrew who went by the stage name Chase the dragon. Here are a few tracks with the new line up. The audio quality is not the greatest and the 2nd song was just done on the fly in one take. Continue reading
