Why ‘Nine,’ ‘Precious’ and ‘A Single Man’ scare me

There are  a lot of movies, both out now and coming up, that I will be seeing, but there’s something (or someone) about each of them that I’ve secretly been thinking makes them less legitimate. For example, Fergie in “Nine.” I know she has like one song and is in like one scene or something. […]

Shia LaBeouf enters 1920s beauty pageant

The crazies over at Shiantology posted this vintage beauty pageant image because one of the contestant bears a striking resemblance to their main squeeze Shia LaBeouf. And I agree. The photo cracks me up. I took it upon myself to add a comparison photo and arrow. I actually think the young  lady looks more like […]

Guttenberg: ‘Three Men and a Baby’ sequel coming

Ever wonder what ever happened to those wacky (were they gay too? I can’t remember) dads and the daughter after the two “Three Men and a Little Baby” movies? Yeah, me either. But if you for some reason decide that after 19 years, you might be a little curious, you might be able to find […]

31 Great Horror Movies: ‘Halloween’ (1978)

In 1978 John Carpenter put together a little movie with a little budget called “Halloween.” That little movie exploded at the box office and is still THE staple for Halloween movies today. And, needless to say, it’s my favorite horror movie and the No. 1 spot in our 31 Days of Horror list. “Halloween” opens […]

31 Great Horror Movies: ’28 Days Later’

I have a feeling a lot of people might not agree with me putting such a current movie this high on our 31 Great Horror Movies list. But I have a great defense. As a life-long horror movie fan, I’ve always had to rely on horror movies that were always around, many made even before […]

31 Great Horror Movies: ‘The Silence of the Lambs’

In 1991, “The Silence of the Lambs” did what no other horror film had done. It won the three major Academy Awards – Best Actress Jodie Foster, Best Actor Anthony Hopkins and Best Picture. The movie deserved every bit of it. The third movie based loosely on the cannibalistic murder Ed Gein, “The Silence of […]

31 Great Horror Movies: ‘Psycho’

Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” is the second movie on the list that was inspired by real cannibal Ed Gein. Norman Bates is actually based loosely on Gein. Of course Norman only wore women’s clothing. Gein wore women’s skin. Norman Bates is a real mamma’s boy. So much so that he’s still under her control even though […]

31 Great Horror Movies: ‘Alien’

Finally. The Top 5. “Alien” makes it to No. 5 because of its innovation (at the time) and it’s stomach-turning gore. In 1979, no movie had done what “Alien” did. It took the basic stalking/slasher story and sent it to space. We have a group of people on a ship who have to make a […]

31 Great Horror Movies: ‘Frailty’

“Frailty” is one of those secret gems. Most people haven’t heard of it or think it must be a terrible film since it was directed by (and stars) Bill Paxton. That’s a very unfair assumption. It’s actually a fantastic movie loaded with darkness, chills and suspense. The movie opens with Fenton Meiks (Matthew McConaughey) paying […]
