“Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension” Somewhat Spooky

HOLLYWOOD—When the first “Paranormal Activity” arrived in theaters in 2009 I was a huge fan. It was unlike anything seen in the cinematic world, especially the horror genre. The found footage element had been utilized in 1999 with the “The Blair Witch Project.” Since the debut of the first “Paranormal” flick the series has spawned a total of five...

“The Last Witch Hunter” Nothing To Fear

HOLLYWOOD—What can one say about “The Last Witch Hunter?” Well if you’re looking for a horror flick, this isn’t the one you should be choosing. In addition, the idea of hunting witches seems to be barely present in this movie. The action-flick, as I like to call it stars Vin Diesel as Kaulder, a witch-hunter who has been cursed with...

“Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives” One Scary Ride

HOLLYWOOD—Continuing our month long tradition of shining the spotlight on some underrated horror gems, this week the focus falls on horror icon Jason Voorhees. Yep, the guy in the hockey mask that made so many of us frightened to go away to summer camp. No, my focus is not on “Friday the 13th” or “Friday the 13th: The Final...

“Bridge Of Spies” Is Absolutely Enthralling

HOLLYWOOD— Director Steven Spielberg and actor Tom Hanks have collaborated multiple times in the film arena. The duo first worked together on “Saving Private Ryan” and the success of that film led the duo to working on “Catch Me If You Can” and “The Terminal.” Spielberg’s latest thriller “Bridge of Spies” marks the fourth time collaborating. The film chronicles the...

“Goosebumps” Is Spooky Fun

HOLLYWOOD—As a kid, I have to give loads of credit to my burgeoning reading skills to R.L. Stine and his highly popular series “Goosebumps.” I mean, I remember reading my first book at around the age of 9 or 10 while at the bookstore with my mom. In fact, the first book I read was “The Cuckoo Clock of...

Chris Rock To Return As Academy Awards Host

Oscar producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin formally made the announcement on Wednesday, October 21 through an Academy Awards press release. Hudlin previously worked with Rock as the pilot director for Rock’s 2005 television series “Everybody...

“Goosebumps” Frightens The Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—Thrills and chills were evident at the box-office this weekend, but it might not have been the scares that box-office prognosticators suspects. The adaptation of the popular book series “Goosebumps” made its big-screen debut to an impressive $23.5 million to land in first place. “Goosebumps” knocked two-week champion “The Martian” to second place with $21.5 million. Ridley Scott’s space...

“Crimson Peak” Has Intrigue, But Few Scares

HOLLYWOOD—With Halloween right around the corner, movie lovers looking for thrills might venture to the multiplex to see the new thriller “Crimson Peak.” The flick directed by acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro definitely knows the genre all too well. One of his classics, in my opinion, is the much underrated science gone wrong thriller “Mimic," which starred Oscar-winner Mira...

“The Exorcist” Not As Scary As You Think

HOLLYWOOD—Continuing our tradition to discuss those horror flicks that could be slightly underrated, this week’s discussion falls on a movie that is not underrated, but a bit overrated in my opinion. It is the 1973 classic “The Exorcist.” Some people have called the possession flick the scariest horror movie of all-time. Hmm, I think that might be a long...

“The Intern” Rivals Action Movies And Delivers

HOLLYWOOD—For the record, Nancy Meyers is one of my favorite directors and when I received word about a year ago that she would be making yet another hit, I couldn't help but be excited. From "Private Benjamin" to "It's Complicated," Meyers' films have delivered stellar performances by top actors from the likes of Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Cameron Diaz, and...
