Release: Friday, July 7, 2017 [Theater] Written by: Jon Watts; Jonathan Goldstein; John Francis Daley; Christopher Ford; Chris McKenna; Erik Sommers Directed by: Jon Watts The only thing that's slightly unconvincing about the high school experience as depicted in Jon Watts' re-re-freakin'-re-boot is the distinct lack of oily skin and pimples. Nobody ever looks as liberated from acne … Continue reading Spider-Man: Homecoming

Release: Friday, July 15, 2016 [Theater] Written by: Paul Feig; Katie Dippold Directed by: Paul Feig It's fun, and perhaps more than anything inspiring, watching a foursome of funny women transforming and transcending in what was supposed to be a god-awful Ghostbusters reboot. Yeah, I said it -- I enjoyed the new movie. Bring it on, man. I ain't afraid of … Continue reading Ghostbusters
Ruth from Flixchatter stopped by to give us her thoughts on 2006’s Casino Royale, the epitome of James Bond. Head on over to Three Rows Back and have a read!
It’s week two of the Decades Blogathon – 6 edition – hosted by myself and the awesome Tom from Digital Shortbread! The blogathon focuses on movies that were released in the sixth year of the decade. Tom and I are running a different entry each day (we’ll also reblog the other’s post) and I’m thrilled to welcome the one and only Ruth from FlixChatter. I’m sure many of you will know of Ruth’s brilliant site and for our little event she is reviewing Daniel Craig’s first foray into the world of Bond with 2006’s Casino Royale.

Release: Friday, October 9, 2015 [Theater] Written by: Jason Fuchs Directed by: Joe Wright We're off to Never, Neverland, but unfortunately not quite like in Metallica's 'Enter Sandman.' No, Joe Wright's reboot of a Disney classic is a lot more subdued. This spirited adventure is, at best, an acoustic interpretation of that song and, come to think of it, … Continue reading Pan

OooOooOOOoooOOoooOo the chills are running down my spine as we enter into October for the. . . second time on TBT. I've got the chills because of the films I know I have to watch and/or review in the coming month; I've got the chills because I'm not looking forward to days in my car … Continue reading TBT: The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
After throwing out my back last Thursday, I return from some much-needed time off here on TBT. And you know, even after only one week gone here I feel kinda rusty and couldn't think of something for the longest time to write about. After filtering through several great suggestions on Facebook I'm here to announce those are … Continue reading TBT: The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)
Welcome to July, and the sixth edition of The Franco Files! No good and thorough evaluation of an actor's career would really be complete without taking a turn to negative town once in a while. In order to appreciate the good, you must experience the. . .well, the shit, to go all Charles Barkley on ya'll. … Continue reading The Franco Files – #6
. . .as if it was going to be anything else! Or maybe the choice isn't as obvious as I think it is. Despite the fact that 2006 doesn't seem like much of a 'throwback,' per se, and that I just sent in a Guest List for the 007 Best Moments in this very film to The … Continue reading TBT: Casino Royale (2006)
