Movie Review: LONDON FIELDS (2018)


Every once in a while, you come across a film that you know little, to nothing about, but it’s premise is so intriguing that you just have to check it out.  London Fields was that film for me.  Prior to four months ago, I had never even heard of this film, but after seeing the trailer and reading the synopsis, I knew it was something that I’d have to experience for myself.  And no matter what the critics say, and that includes myself, this is advice everyone should follow, as the subjectivity of film is what makes it such a beautiful experience.

Exclusive Interview: Sophie Thatcher Talks Her New Film, "Prospect"


I recently had the opportunity to interview Sophie Thatcher, the star of the upcoming Sci-Fi film Prospect.  

The film follows a teenage girl and her father who travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They've secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon's toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with the forest's other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father's greed-addled judgment, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape.

Movie Review: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT (2018)



When I first saw the trailer for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, I was instantly hooked.  The action, the music… it was perfect.  It became my favorite trailer of the year and has stuck with me ever since.  So I knew I would have to go see this in the theaters, and in order to do it justice I would need to do a full rewatch of the series, and boy, am I glad I did.  This film is a fantastic sequel, branching directly off of the previous film, while also being a beautiful callback to all the other M:I films that came before it.

Movie Review: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION (2015)



Ethan and his team are back, and this time they are hunting down a mysterious terror organization called The Syndicate.  Does that name sound familiar?  Well it should, as that was the mission given to Ethan at the end of Ghost Protocol.  This marks the first time a Mission: Impossible film leads in directly from the previous film, and it's about time.  It’s a true connecting point, and as you see throughout Rogue Nation, the events of Ghost Protocol weigh in heavily here, and that is one of the many things that make this such a great film.

YouTube Review: COBRA KAI - Season 1




Anyone who came of age during the 80's remembers The Karate Kid. A tale about a scrappy kid named Daniel LaRusso who learns to stand up for himself.  Now, fast forward 34 years and a new rivalry begins. I had the pleasure of watching the first season of the YouTube Red series Cobra Kai, and I loved it. I was obsessed with this movie as a kid and to see it back in any form was fantastic.

Movie Review: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL (2011)




In 2006, audiences thought they had seen the last of Ethan Hunt, but little did they know that just five years later a new mission would begin that would change this franchise forever.  Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol was a shot in the arm for this seemingly dead franchise, and much like with Fast & Furious, this fourth installment has brought with it a new found life and a series of fantastic sequels.

Movie Review: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 3 (2006)




Back in the day, trilogies were the cool thing to do with a film franchise, and it seems that Mission: Impossible wanted to follow that trend.  M:I-3 feels like the conclusion to Ethan Hunt’s story while also serving as a sort of soft reboot of the series.  It’s very much a sequel, but can be watched as a stand-alone film with no problem.  You don’t lose out on anything, other than a few visual references, if you’ve never seen the first two films, but you do appreciate it more after the train wreck that is M:I-2.

Movie Review: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2 (2000)



There are few times when one can say a sequel surpasses the greatness of the original film - The Empire Strikes Back, The Godfather Part 2, and Captain America: Winter Soldier are just a few examples.  And I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that Mission: Impossible 2… is NOT one of those films.  After such a good film, one that has remained in the pop culture zeitgeist, it is mind-boggling that this was what came next.

Movie Review: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE (1996)


The 1990’s were a breeding ground for action films, with such fare as Face/Off, Bad Boys, Die Hard, and The Matrix, but one of the most influential and longest lasting franchises also came out of this decade – Mission: Impossible.  The first film in this long-running series hit theaters in 1996 and grabbed the audience in a way that no one thought would, or even could, happen.

Movie Review: 8 BROKEN HEARTS (2017)



Pain is something we all deal with at some point in our lives, and it’s something that can shape who we are as people.  But the true test is how we handle it and whether or not we allow it to control our lives.  This documentary showcases eight brave individuals who all bare their own form of pain and how they were able to deal with it.  8 Broken Hearts captures the stories of these courageous individuals who undergo a moving transformation by sharing their experiences and courageously baring their souls. As the film reveals, pain is a feeling that sticks around, often with great detail, but it is something that everyone shares.

Movie Review: MARY SHELLEY (2018)



I love films that tell the stories of writers, especially if they are female. Most people have heard of the classic, Frankenstein. However, its true author, Mary Shelley, almost didn't get the credit she deserved. Besides being a great writer, she's also known for her marriage to Percy Shelley. During the time period in which they both lived, his views on love and wealth were radical, to say the least. The film, Mary Shelley, explores her relationship with Percy and her writing. It's a great depiction of a woman who was ahead of her time.

Movie Review: JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM (2018)


25 years ago, I fell in love with a film for the first time, and in turn, fell in love with film as a whole.  Jurassic Park was everything to me.  It gave me a wonderful escape to a land I’d never experienced before, and it has stuck with me for two and a half decades.  And over those years, I’ve seen several sequels come and go, none living up to sheer awe and wonder of the original.  But Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom managed to do the next best thing by evoking the essence of the first film while bringing something wholly new to the franchise.

Short Film Spotlight: PORCELAIN STARE


Horror is, by far, one of my favorite genres of film, and anytime I’m looking for a short film to review, it’s usually either Sci-Fi or Horror.  So, when I was asked to give this one a watch, I was definitely intrigued.  From the poster alone, I knew I had to check it out.  And I’m glad I did.

Movie Review: BATMAN NINJA (2018)



DC’s animated film line is one that I almost always look forward to seeing what is released next.  They have been able to adapt some of my favorite storylines from the comics, bringing them to life in a way I never thought would happen.  So, when I heard that they were gearing up to release a new, original film inspired by the world of anime, I was definitely intrigued.  Now, what you need to realize is that I’m not a huge anime fan.  I’ve seen a few of the older anime films, like Akira, Project A-ko, Vampire Hunter D, etc., but never really got into it as a genre. However, once I saw the trailer for Batman Ninja, I was sold.  It looked amazing, from the intricate details to the fantastically unique character designs, and the story seemed interesting.  So, once I got my copy, I was ready to give this baby a whirl.
