Moving Past Nostalgia | ‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’ Review

Revival explores abundance of reboots Reboots have been quite the rage this past decade; while nothing new to entertainment, the 2010s have been abundant with reboots and revivals of relics from the 80s and 90s. Shows like “Fuller House” and “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” have found home not only in the hearts of nostalgic fans, but also on Netflix. And now, the … Continue reading Moving Past Nostalgia | ‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’ Review

With 2019 more than half way over, we decided to select our best movies and video games picks of 2019… so far. Best Movies ‘Toy Story 4’ Full review “Toy Story 4” is a film no one asked for and could’ve easily been a soulless sequel in the same vein as “Cars 2” and “The Incredibles 2,” but it managed to tell a story unique … Continue reading Best of 2019… So Far | Staff Picks

Sony will not be fine producing Spider-Man movies without Kevin Feige and Marvel | Column from the Editor

According to Deadline, Kevin Feige’s involvement in future Sony Spider-Man movies may come to an end, as well as their sharing of the character with Marvel.  The breakup comes allegedly after Marvel/Disney demanded that they enter a 50/50 co-financing arrangement, most likely brought on by the fact that the most recent Spider-Man film broke $1 billion at the box office to become Sony’s most profitable … Continue reading Sony will not be fine producing Spider-Man movies without Kevin Feige and Marvel | Column from the Editor

Not So Good | ‘Good Boys’ Review

In my 2019 Movie Catch-Up post, I ragged on how reviewers just don’t seem to like comedies these days, most notably in the cases of “Stuber” and “Shaft,” two superb comedies that got the short end of the aggregate stick. Gene Stupnitsky’s adolescent comedy “Good Boys” is the complete opposite, sitting atop an 80 percent fresh Rotten Tomatoes score that I feel like is wholly … Continue reading Not So Good | ‘Good Boys’ Review

Girl-fellas | ‘The Kitchen’ Review

Gangster movies are to modern cinema what Westerns were in early Hollywood. A genre defined by strong men who are willing to get their hands dirty for money, loyalty, and family. And just like how Westerns have opened themselves to re-interpretation and subversion, the gangster movie genre gets a new spin with Andrea Berloff’s “The Kitchen.” Set in Hell’s Kitchen during the 1970s, the movie … Continue reading Girl-fellas | ‘The Kitchen’ Review

‘Hello there!’ Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Disney Plus series might revitalize Star Wars | Column from the Editor

When Disney announced their upcoming Disney Plus streaming platform, I was not optimistic or excited about it. I already pay $13 a month for Netflix, which has more shows and movies than I could ever watch, and so far, no other streaming platform has had enough original content to warrant me to drop the service, or add a new one (though Hulu and Amazon Prime … Continue reading ‘Hello there!’ Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Disney Plus series might revitalize Star Wars | Column from the Editor

It’s Halloween in August | ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ (2019) Review

Halloween seems to be coming earlier and earlier every year, or rather, it’s always with us, as horror films are regularly released throughout the year. Still, not all horror films are strictly Halloween films, but I do roll my eyes when I see a film so fit for October like this year’s “Scary Stories to Tell in The Dark” released in August, or the beginning … Continue reading It’s Halloween in August | ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ (2019) Review

Cult Fiction | ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Review

The early nineties introduced audiences to three of the most influential directors in Hollywood; Kevin Smith, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino. Of the novel visionaries, none of them have been more influential than Tarantino. With a filmography consisting of “Pulp Fiction”, “Kill Bill”, and “Django Unchained”, Tarantino shows homage to old films that shape his canvas. This is especially the case in his latest film, … Continue reading Cult Fiction | ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Review

Not My Berkshire County | ‘Berkshire County/Tormented’ Review Update

Last year, I reviewed a film named “Berkshire County” which was later renamed “Tormented,” that takes place in a fictional town or county of the same name. The film, which is a 2014 home evasion film directed by Audrey Cummings, was shot outside Toronto and as such draws instant comparisons to my home county, Berkshire County, Mass., especially because of its Northeastern location and the … Continue reading Not My Berkshire County | ‘Berkshire County/Tormented’ Review Update
