Orange is the New Black: Season 3 (2015) TV Review “The Third Coming Was Well Worth the Wait”

Netflix has by now shown their muscle and reign over Television here in the United States (especially with the addition of “Daredevil” recently but more on that another time).  One of their widely popular original shows has once again returned for yet another season, “Orange is the New Black”.   Originally when the first season premiered… Read More Orange is the New Black: Season 3 (2015) TV Review “The Third Coming Was Well Worth the Wait”

Lava (2015) Animated Short-Review “One Of Pixar’s Weakest Short Films”

As with any Pixar film, before its premiere a brand new animated short is shown from the animation studio; this one called “Lava”.  As I stated in my “Frozen Fever” review I would be trying to do reviews on animated short movies.  Animated shorts are a great art that I think sadly gets overlooked by… Read More Lava (2015) Animated Short-Review “One Of Pixar’s Weakest Short Films”

Game of Thrones: Season 5 (2015) TV Review “Dark and Emotionally Well Written This is Another Masterful Season”

We’ve reached the end of yet another “Game of Thrones” season and boy what an emotional packed and controversial ride.  This fifth season, in the cultural phenomenon that has taken the world by storm, proves that with or without the book’s help this show can continue to deliver smart and thoughtful storytelling and entertainment.   This… Read More Game of Thrones: Season 5 (2015) TV Review “Dark and Emotionally Well Written This is Another Masterful Season”

San Andreas (2015) Movie Review “The Rock Verses An Earthquake!”

You sort of know what to expect when you buy your ticket for “San Andreas”.  It’s a big, loud, stupid and is a CGI laced disaster film that will kill millions of people so causally but will also be the best couples therapy (for our characters) in the world.  If you come in expecting anything… Read More San Andreas (2015) Movie Review “The Rock Verses An Earthquake!”

Inside Out (2015) Movie Review “A Magnificent Triumph For Pixar”

After the emotional trauma that Sunday’s season finale of “Game of Thrones” dealt me, I was overjoyed to come into theaters a few days early to view Pixar’s 15th feature, “Inside Out” (which ironic because “Inside Out” is a film that is all about emotions).  We all know the narrative of Pixar at this point. … Read More Inside Out (2015) Movie Review “A Magnificent Triumph For Pixar”

It Follows (2015) Movie Review “A Horror Movie I Have Been Long Waiting For”

Last year was undoubtedly a weak year for mainstream wide release theatrical horror movies.  With every passing movie I kept hoping for a good one.  Yet a lot of them ended up on my top 10 worst films of the years.  “Devil’s Due”, “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones”, “V/H/S: Viral”, and especially the horrendous  “Ouija”. … Read More It Follows (2015) Movie Review “A Horror Movie I Have Been Long Waiting For”

Jurassic World (2015) Movie Review “A Worthy and Fun Follow Up”

If it’s any indication by my “Jurassic Park” review, it’s pretty clear that I am a big fan of the original film.  I actually do enjoy it’s less beloved follow up “The Lost World: Jurassic Park”.  However it’s third entry, “Jurassic Park III”, is a huge misfire.  It’s not just disappointing it’s just a plain… Read More Jurassic World (2015) Movie Review “A Worthy and Fun Follow Up”

Jurassic Park (1993) Classic Movie Review “One of the Most Thrilling and Groundbreaking Films of All Time”

Just on the Horizon is one my most highly anticipated films of the year, “Jurassic World”.  Why?  The original 1993 “Jurassic Park” is one of my most enduring and favorite movies of all time.  I grew up watching the movie at a young age, memorizing every line, every moment and in utter awe of “real”… Read More Jurassic Park (1993) Classic Movie Review “One of the Most Thrilling and Groundbreaking Films of All Time”

Maggie (2015) Movie Review “Had A lot of Promise But Couldn’t Deliver”

It feels like not too long ago we got our first look at this little zombie movie called “Maggie” starring the (fading) action star Arnold Schwarzenegger.  A different sort of zombie movie that looked more like a small drama than a big bombastic horror movie.  Never quite seeing Arnold flex his acting chops I  was… Read More Maggie (2015) Movie Review “Had A lot of Promise But Couldn’t Deliver”
