I’ve always taken an interest in books, and films, that surround the lives of people of notoriety. Whether they are an actor, musician, or historical figure, it has always intrigued me. We’ve seen these people in the spotlight many times, but it’s what’s behind the scenes that interests me, and grabs my attention. The new film, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, is about the iconic rock ‘n’ roll band, QUEEN, in particular, the bands larger than life lead singer, Freddie Mercury.

In 1977, John Travolta was a box office superstar with his disco hit film, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. Not only did he return to the big screen dancing, but this time he sang his way in to our hearts, with yet another box office smash, GREASE, which takes place in the 1950′s. The film GREASE was based on the hit stage musical of the same name, and featured an all-star cast.

Suburbicon, rated R, is a cross between a crime drama, and a dark comedy. Directed by actor George Clooney, and co-written with the Coen brothers, Joel and Ethan (known for their twisted, dark comedies such as, Fargo), this film carries what I call, a one-two punch. So, with the strange title, what is Suburbicon about?

Some filmmakers take several films before they have a true box-office hit on their hands. For M. Night Shyamalan, he hit it out of the ballpark his very first film, The sixth sense in 1999. Since then, he has had a string of misses and very few hits…..until now. M. Night has redeemed himself with his latest scarefest, The visit. This “Twilight Zone” style tale is fitting for this time of year…Pre-Fall…Halloween time coming up…and in typical M. Night tradition there is a plot twist you will not see coming!

In the 1980′s, among the music of Alternative/New Wave, Heavy Metal, Top 40, and Dance Club techno music – there was the urban music of Rap. Rap wasn’t taken very seriously for many years. It was also a very “young” form of music back then with groups like Grand Master Flash & the Furious Five, Whodini, and Sugarhill Gang. It was up until the mid-80′s when bands like The Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Run-DMC were putting songs at the top of the charts and money in the music industries pockets.

If there’s one thing about all of Adam Sandler films it’s that he always takes us back to a much happier and simpler time in our lives by bringing us “old school” rock and roll and Pop Culture. There is no other bigger Pop Culture from yesteryear than the video games we all grew up with: Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Centipede, Space Invaders, Q-Bert, Frogger, and many others.

I’m very excited to bring you my first theater release film review of 2015! What better way to begin than with a sequel! The second best exotic Marigold hotel is the sequel to the 2012 hit The best exotic Marigold hotel, a film that I personally enjoyed so much it made my Top 5 Best of 2012 year end wrap up article that year. This second in the series is as equally entertaining as the first. So here we go with The second best exotic Marigold hotel.
