Midnight Movie (2008)

Just once in my life, I want to see a B-movie of camcorder-level quality or above that makes me forget that I am watching a mega-low-budget film. We're not talking immaculate, just something that will prove compelling and moving. Midnight Movie is not much above a camcorder-level quality film and what arguably should be classified as a "C-movie" out of respect for B-movies. It starts off in a psych ward where an old man who used to make films is shown one of his old films in hopes of making him responsive and rehabilitate-able. Did you guess that the film he made and wants to watch is a horror film of himself killing? Well, it is. The old fart was committed for going psycho on everyone years earlier. When shown…

Can We Go to the Movies?

Can We Go to the Movies?

Best kids movie of 2009: Cloudy with a chance of meatballs: For me a surprise from left field, Cloudy with a chance of meatballs was a whirlwind of a movie that was quite impressive with its depth and the quality of the comedy. Cloudy takes us through the life of a child and later young man, Flint Lockwood (voiced by Bill Hader), who aspires to be an inventor of Einsteinian proportions. Unfortunately for Flint both his father and town do not heavily support his passion as the town routinely has to deal with the consequences of his experiment and his father because he thinks the inventing is silly. Most labored of all is the town police Officer Earl Devereaux, voiced perfectly by Mr. T, who is constantly telling Flint off.…

Ten Movies to Love During Valentine’s Day

Ten Movies to Love During Valentine’s Day

Ever since I was old enough to have a source of income, I have used a portion of my earnings to see as many movies as possible. Whether this means paying through the nose to see a film on the big screen or buying a copy of a new release the day it hits the shelf, my movie-viewing experience has been vast in the last ten years. I've watched movies throughout the different stages in my life, including the many romantic phases I've experienced. From being single, to you-know-what-backward in love, to bitterly regretting the former, to falling in love in the "to death do us part" style, there's been a movie appropriate for all these emotional rollercoasters. I'm sure one of these flicks will speak directly to your heart…

Many people who are fascinated by drag come to Wigstock every year. People from all over the world come to visit this spectacular event.

‘Burnt’ – A Move Review

‘Burnt’ – A Move Review

I recently had the pleasure of seeing the movie Burnt, starring Bradley Cooper. I had never heard of this title before I saw it in the discount bin at my local Wal-Mart. I'm a huge Bradley Cooper fan so I figured for a few bucks, I'd give this movie a shot. I'm glad I did. Burnt tells the story of a chef who has hit rock bottom due to alcoholism. In his quest for resurgence, he opens his own restaurant with the hopes of becoming a 3-star Michelin restaurant. The main chef is played by Bradley Cooper. This isn't your typical redemption / cooking film. In fact, there's actually a lot to learn about the restaurant industry and cooking in general from this movie. Burnt gives an excellent look into…
