The Silence of the Lambs

by T Akery December 1st, 2016
The Silence of the Lambs is still one of the creepiest psychopathic movies ever to hit the big screen. In fact, it practically defined the genre. Originally released in 1991, it is still one of the movies that delivers on the chills as well as the terror. But what

Wayne’s World

by Elizabeth Gunto November 22nd, 2016
Mike Myers, not unlike many of his Saturday Night Live brethren, seems to have fallen into some kind of talent-ruining device around 1999. Since the 1990s have ended, he has put out some offensive, unfunny and dull films that left his once-devoted fan base disappointed. Even that obnoxious guy in your high school American History class has stopped quoting Austin Powers years ago, and all that’s left of a once-powerful talent are voice-overs in cartoons and meager and demeaning

The Fantastic Four You Didn’t See

by Ronald A. Rowe November 17th, 2016
Before the mediocre 2005 version of The Fantastic Four hit the big screen, there was an infamous 1994 B-movie version that didn’t. It never hit the little screen, either. At least not legally. But roughly a gazillion bootleg copies are floating around thanks to the wretched hive of scum and villainy that is the traveling comic book convention.

Roger Corman, king of B-movies, was hired to direct the film on a budget of somewhere between $1 and $1.5 million, depending

  • Jaws

    by T Akery November 10th, 2016
    Jaws was one of the scariest summer movies released in 1975. It was one of the reasons that people stayed on the beach instead of going in the water. While this scary flick wouldn't fly in today's computer animation age, it really was one of the most high tech movies of its time.

    A shark is hunting off of the coast of Amity Island. This great white is out for

  • From the Vault: Metropolis

    by Ronald A. Rowe November 3rd, 2016
    Metropolis was the first feature-length science fiction movie ever released, way back in 1927. The black and white, silent film was, at the time, the most expensive movie ever produced. Watching it through today’s eyes, jaded by films with CGI and $200 million budgets, it seems simplistic. But viewed through the lens of film history, Metropolis is one of the most important, ground-breaking movies ever made. Much of the

  • Unforgiven

    by T Akery October 27th, 2016
    Unforgiven is the quintessential film about revenge. It took no prisoners when it was released in 1992. Its impact is just as powerful today as it was then. Undoubtedly, it is still one of the top western movies of all time.

    Munny is an old gunslinger who has retired to the life of a farmer. But it really doesn't suit him or his personality. So, when the Schofield Kid comes
