Cocaine Bear Review

Cocaine Bear would probably cause Neil deGrasse Tyson to stomp his feet in anger, repeatedly yelling “Wrong! Bears cannot do that!” over an increasingly annoyed theater crowd. But personally, I’m a huge fan of “deadly beast goes on a killing spree” films. Each time it is released online, I rent all the average shark attack …

Champions Review

In between artlessness and genuine comedic fervor of the cast, well-meaning Champions is a movie that follows the life of a hot-headed basketball coach who seizes an opportunity when he is directed to coach a team with special needs after been demoted. It is a rare film in that it highlights mental disability in characters …

Review Of Tetris

With all the stops pulled out of it, including bending what could be called a “true story,” Tetris makes international video game rights negotiations seem fascinating. This twisted movie covers Cold War madness just before Gorbachev’s retirement via the insanely complicated plot of how Tetris cartridges found their way to customers worldwide. It is a …

It was loosely adapted from Georges Bizet’s opera Carmen that was composed in 1875 – you might be familiar with this work because it …

Review Of Renfield

Renfield has Nicholas Cage as Count Dracula- let me say it again—Nicholas Cage is Count Dracula in Renfield. However, this movie is shabby in its own way except for the character of a vampire named Cageula (or is he DracuCage?). The good news is a cartoonish amount of carnage that explodes red juices like Capri …

The Covenant Review

Guy Ritchie is best known for his energetic and witty heist thrillers that zoom on by — which does not describe The Covenant. As a look back at America’s occupation in Afghanistan after 9/11, Ritchie and his co-writers (Ivan Atkinson, Marn Davies) try their hardest to fight against becoming pro-military propaganda, and their well-meaning intentions …
