The Wild & Wonderful Whites of West Virginia Review

This kind of movie is normally far from my normal range of viewing material. I must confess my only reason for having seen it is due to it being a school assignment, and the only reason I’m writing about it is for the same purpose, so I figured, since this is kind of what I… Continue reading The Wild & Wonderful Whites of West Virginia Review

Memphis Heat Review

Long before the bright lights and pyrotechnics of today’s modern wrestling extravaganza there was already a thriving wrestling scene in America, several of them in fact, located in territories strewn across the United States, most of which falling under the dictum of the National Wrestling Alliance. One such territory existed in Memphis, Tennessee the birthplace… Continue reading Memphis Heat Review

World War Z Review

Brad Pitt stars as Gerry Lane, a former United Nations investigator, and leader of several small tactical forces, who is now retired from that line of work and attempting to enjoy a quiet life with his growing family when, you guessed it, the mother-trucking zombie apocalypse happens, again. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from… Continue reading World War Z Review

Good Will Hunting Review

  In a way this movie is like Rain Man for jaded intellectuals. Will Hunting is every bit as advanced as Dustin Hoffman’s character was in areas such as possessing a photographic memory of every academic book known to man, and solving mathematical equations that would cause even Einstein to light his hair on fire.… Continue reading Good Will Hunting Review

2 Guns Review

The following introduction is a little spoilery, but it doesn’t really reveal anything that will compromise enjoyment of the movie in my opinion, but anyway, read at your own risk, or simply skip down to the next one. Denzel Washington stars as undercover DEA agent Robert "Bobby" Trench, while Mark Wahlberg plays undercover Naval Intelligence… Continue reading 2 Guns Review

Planes, Trains, & Automobiles Review

We all have our little rituals that guide us through our life. These are the things we do every day, week, month or year depending upon what it is we’re talking about. For every year since I was a small child around this time a year when it is approaching the Thanksgiving holiday I always… Continue reading Planes, Trains, & Automobiles Review

Life Itself Review

When Roger Ebert passed away last April the web saw an outpouring of tributes and well wishes normally reserved for the most beloved heads of state. Ebert’s final years were plagued with pain and peril, such as the advanced cancer that deformed his face, and took away his voice, thus ending his twenty-five plus year… Continue reading Life Itself Review

Pain & Gain Review

The great movie ‘Fargo’ has forever strained my ability to trust any movie that claims itself to be a “true story”. Fargo did that in its opening credits as an inside joke on the audience (one that, according to legend actually inspired a person to go searching for the lost money in that story). The… Continue reading Pain & Gain Review

We’re The Millers Review

Lately Hollywood has been coming up with a plethora of very intriguing and potential filled ideas upon which could be made a great number of entertaining films. It’s just too bad that only a scant few of these movies have been able to rise up to the promise of their premise. A drug dealer whose… Continue reading We’re The Millers Review

The Untold History of the United States Review

“The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion (to which few members of other civilizations were converted) but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.” - Samuel P. Huntington With this ten part documentary series (now with two… Continue reading The Untold History of the United States Review
