HOLLYWOOD—Anyone who knows me knows that I am a horror buff. I love a good scare, but the notion of terror in the horror genre has been dismal at best. Some filmmakers get it, but the problem is not many know how to actually deliver it to the audience. When the 2017 remake of the Stephen King classic “It”...

“The Intruder” Is Predictable Fun

HOLLYWOOD—I really hate to say it, but I feel like the movie “The Intruder” is something I’ve already seen a trillion times before. There is nothing more frustrating than watching a movie that you feel you just watched a year or two ago, the only difference this go around is that you have new people in the foray. I...

“Avengers: Endgame” Is Absolutely Fantastic

HOLLYWOOD—This is a big movie and I don’t just mean that in terms of the cast, but the epic conclusion and large time frame.

John Singleton, A Master Behind The Lens

HOLLYWOOD—The passing of Hollywood writer, producer and director John Singleton this week thru me for an absolute loop. It just seemed to come out of nowhere and this guy was so young.

“Little” Offers Minimal Laughs

HOLLYWOOD—Many of us probably wish we had the opportunity to turn back time and venture to a period when things weren’t so great for us; a time were we could correct a few wrongs and perhaps be seen in a new light. That might be the only element of familiarity that the comedy “Little” delivers to the audience. I...

Sequels, Remakes Rule Summer 2019

HOLLYWOOD—With the release of “Avengers: End Game” this past week, it’s safe to say the summer 2019 box-office is in full-force. I mean summer technically doesn’t start until June, but in Hollywood it has moved up earlier each year. There are plenty, and I mean plenty of familiar favorites, sequels and new content hitting the multiplex between May and...

“Avengers: End Game” Makes History

HOLLYWOOD—I suspected that the final chapter in the “Avengers” franchise would be big at the box-office, but not in a million years did I expect the film to earn over $300 million during its opening weekend in theaters. This is how you know a film is massive; it is sold out virtually at every theater the entire weekend, the...

“The Curse Of Llorona” Delivers The Scares

HOLLYWOOD—Delivering a good scare in the multiplex is no easy task to accomplish. With horror, most audiences are in tune with the ins-and-out of the genre; you know what to expect.
