Top 5 Cult Classics Every Movie Fan Should Watch

There is such a fine line between the magic that can inspire a cult following and just plain bad filmmaking. The films I have listed here managed to get all of it right.

Movie Review: “A Good Day to Die Hard”

The problem with some movie franchises is that watching them over the years becomes less of a diversion and more of an obligation. Not only do storylines manage to drift with the characters, but franchise films also have a high degree of predictability. It’s well known that even-numbered “Star Trek” films are huge disappointments and that the “Scary Movie” franchise stopped being funny halfway through the first movie, although sometimes a series takes on a life of its own. Something like this seems to be happening with the “Die Hard” movies.

Review: 21 and Over

Its plot is cookie-cutter (think Superbad meets Project X in college) and its jokes are dumb, but a somewhere in the midst of the film’s chaos is a semblance of a decent movie. 21 and Over is in no way a must-see (or “ever-see,” for that matter), but if you happen to be bored on your day off and feel the need to put your brain on a shelf somewhere and stare at a screen, then check it out.

Buy DVDs Online And Watch Them At The Comfort Of Your Own Home

If you are reading this, I’m guessing that you are a huge movie buff and you love to watch movies. You may be used to watching movies in the cinemas, but have you ever tried watching them at home? In this article I will be talking about why it is better to buy DVDs online instead of watch them in the cinema.

Banshee: Entertainment That Works Without Guilt

In a day when when there are so many laws that no one can possibly live out twenty-four hours without technically breaking one, it is nice to watch a series that throws caution to the wind and allows the characters to assert their individuality without guilt or concern for upsetting the audience. Banshee is a place where people break all the rules they can find, than go and look for a few more to scatter to the wind. I love that place and hope that the series has a long life on Cinemax.

Safe But Entertaining “Safe Haven”

When going in to a Nicholas Sparks film, there are a few things that can usually be taken for granted. There will likely be a guy and a girl who meet under unlikely circumstances. One or both of them will be hesitant to love again because they’ve been hurt in the past.

My Top 5 Sports Films

Not surprisingly, the drama of sports translates very well to movies. Some of the finest moments in motion picture history were inspired by a team or individual overcoming the odds to achieve greatness. What follows is a list of my top five sports films.

The Score – Vintage De Niro and Brando

“The Score” is a 2001 heist movie starring Robert De Niro, Marlon Brando and Edward Norton. With three generations of actors, the film explores character studies as well as an attempt at the perfect crime.

Nicholas Sparks Has Found the Right Formula for Success

If there is one name that has come to be associated with assured success at the box office, it is Nicholas Sparks. Although the master storyteller first became known for his best-selling novels, his increasingly growing fame is related to his novels-turned-films. Sparks is the author of seventeen published novels, eight of which have been adapted to films.

Lena Dunham: Breakout Star of 2012

With the subversive sleeper hit show “Girls,” Lena Dunham burst into the spotlight in 2012 as the smartest, funniest young talent in TV today. Born in New York in 1986, this young woman has already become an accomplished actor, screenwriter, director, and filmmaker. In 2012, her work on “Girls” was nominated for four Emmy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards, and she won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series – Comedy.

Michael Douglas: Star of The Movie “Wall Street”

Michael Kirk Douglas was born September 28, 1944. His father is famed actor Kirk Douglas and his mother is actress Diane Dill. Following his parent’s steps, he became actor and film producer.

Andrew Scott – The Irish Star

A receiver of the 2005 Laurence Oliver Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre for his part in ‘A Girl in a Car with a Man’ (a Jerwood Theatre Upstairs production), Andrew Scott has proven what it takes to be not only a television and film actor, but also an on stage actor. A number of people may not of heard of him, but he has starred in a number of dramas for the BBC and featured in Irish films. So how has the Irish actor got to where he is today?
