Midway (2019)

I had a pretty good idea what to expect going into Midway with two of my nephews (ages 13 and 16, and cool dudes too) this morning…and I was not let down. Given that the WW2 flick detailing the tense and desperate build up to the battle of Midway in the South Pacific was led […]

Doctor Sleep (2019)

Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s bestselling novel The Shining holds a special place in my horror-loving heart, as it is one of THOSE movies; those that burn a place in the psyche when they first play over your peepers.

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

I must confess that, as an admitted fan of well-crafted ‘Westerns’…I’ve never seen the original 1960 version of this flick. I’ve always known about it, it just never presented itself at a time when I could check it out. It was one of those ones that I was sure I would EVENTUALLY catch up with. […]
