James Bond is probably the most recognizable action franchise in cinema history. It is incredibly unlikely that anyone, even action neophytes, do not know James Bond in one way or another. However, the 2000’s was a time of turbulence for…

Halloween’s Over but The Babadook Stays

  The month of Halloween is always a festive time: pumpkins are set out on doorsteps, costumes are prepared, scare-parks like Witches Woods are packed with people. Halloween is also the best time of the year to watch scary movies.…

Movie Review: Divide in Concord

Last Friday evening, Concord townspeople gathered in the place where it all began.  Or at least where the talk about the divisive article to ban the sale of single serve plastic water bottles began.  However, contentious debate and hard feelings had…

Teaching Mrs. Tingle: A Hit for the Ages

Movie Review: 47 Ronin

Over break, I went a little crazy. I watched a total of four movies in theaters: 47 Ronin, Anchorman 2, The Wolf of Wall Street, and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Needless to say, it was a sad, sad,…

Movie Review: Catching Fire, Generic and Bloodless

I was looking forward to Catching Fire ever since the trailer came out. I have to admit the last film was a bit of a let down. But Catching Fire also had similar issues. The whole story seemed to drag on and on,…
