Director Ridley Scott is no stranger to Science Fiction films. He has brought us many great films but he is known for his Syfy hit Alien (1979), Blade Runner (1982), and Prometheus (2012) which were huge box office hits and way ahead of their time. Scott brings us back to the syfy universe with his latest film, The Martian. Based on Andy Weir’s 2011 best-seller, this is an epic film on the grandest scale with amazing vision, Special Effects, and music set to an incredible story that sucks you in and cheering on the main character of Mark Watney (played by Matt Damon) till the very end.

However, every woman he comes across isn’t her and it’s not the flowers he delivers but a silver hammer and brutally kills each one he encounters.
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!
The Gangster film genre has been around since the very beginning of films back in the 1930′s and 40′s going through the 1970′s with The Godfather and the 1990′s with Goodfellas, and now into 2000-teens with Black Mass. This film is based on the real-life gangster, James “Whitey” Bulger, the worst gang criminal to come out of the very dangerous area of South Boston.
As an atheist I’m typically not a fan of religious films. That said The Fallen is an outstanding dark re-telling of the story of Genesis by first time director Gabriel Kipling Tyner. The film starts off of course in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve, granted there is a bit a stretch that they aren’t naked however this film re-creates and the interpretation of the story in a very artistic format.
Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno has finally got release dates, after the usual Festivals screenings in 2013, the film had been set for a September 5 release date the next year, but then suddenly it was pulled from the schedules over internal problems at financiers “Worldview Entertainment”. When Christopher Woodrow, who was CEO, left the company with little warning in June 2014, the company’s new management did put a halt to spending based on deals made by the guy who used to lead “Worldview”, the company was committed to paying some of the big costs associated with theatrical distribution, as a result The Green Inferno release had been delayed indefinitely and it’s been in limbo ever since, but is now finally set to emerge thanks to a new deal with Jason Blum‘s distribution label “BH-Tilt”.
What do you get when you cross the comedic dialogue brilliance of Kevin Smith, the grittiness of an 80’s Able Ferrara and the sleazy fun of Russ Myer? You get the films of Sean Weathers.

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.
