Contained movies are easily some of my favorite movies to watch just because in a contained movie the director relies on the performance from the cast and crew to keep the audience captivated. The movie Phone Booth (2003) which is a contained movie follows the story of a hot shot agent, Stu Shepard played...

All you probably now about Ghost in the Shell, unless you’ve read the manga or seen the 1995 animated film or its sequel, is that Scarlett Johansson is white and she is playing a Japanese character. This was obviously a big fat qualm for me because I am a stickler when it was come to whitewashing. I see...

Since this past week on Netflix we got a new movie called The Discovery with Robert Redford in it. I figured I take a look back at good ol’ blue eyes most famous movie. The Sting. The Sting (1973) in my opinion is the epitome of con movies. The movie follows the story of rookie con artist Johnny...

In honor of the late great Bette Davis’ birthday, I find it only fitting to remember by taking a look back on one of her best performances. By far Bette’s most respectable piece of work is All About Eve where she plays aging Broadway star Margo Channing. Bette did so spectacularly in her performance that she was...

For the uninitiated, RuPaul’s Drag Race is America’s Next Top Model for drag queens, but with more dancing, singing, acting and shade-throwing… The show’s on primetime VH1 now, but RuPaul’s said it, and I will say it. Drag will never be mainstream, honey... I’m crying, and so are the qu...

Being a huge fan of science fiction movies and of space, I had really high hopes for Life, but the movie really failed to be memorable. The movie, after all, stars two of the hottest actors right now: Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds. Plus, with how good the space movies have been the past few year...

The Power Rangers were created in the ‘90s in a television show called The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. 24 years later, the Power Rangers have been rebooted in movie form and I can say that I loved it. Mighty Morphin' was a gigantic part of my childhood and it was absolutely amazing to see one of...
