William Powell and Myrna Loy appeared in six Thin Man movies. The first one premiered 80 years ago.

Frasier’s Pursuit of Happiness

On May 19, 1994, Frasier wrapped up its first season on the air. The season-ending episode focused on what would be a familiar setting, Niles and Frasier conversing over coffee at Cafe Nervosa.

The Depth Behind the Exceptional Narrative of Donnie Darko

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Donnie Darko for the first time. The plot involves Jake Gyllenhaal who plays the unstable character of Donnie. He has continuous visions of a large bunny rabbit called Frank who influences him to commit a series of crimes.

Movie Review of “Neighbors”

A movie review for the film, Neighbors, starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne and Dave Franco. Zac Efron and Dave Franco play frat brothers who are responsible for causing most of the neighborhood drama, but will stop at nothing to keep their frat house. The ensuing neighbor wars results in plenty of comedy and a satisfying ending.

Twilight of the Doctor: Series 8: Rumours, Gossip, Spoilers and More

Earlier last month, former Doctor Who Matt Smith announced that he was “really jealous” of successor Peter Capaldi. Smith, who portrayed the eponymous Doctor from 2010 – 2013, told Calgary Expo Comic-Con visitors that upon hearing about series boss Steven Moffat’s plans for the upcoming episodes, he actually felt some misgivings about leaving the role.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Tim Robbins plays Andy Dufresne who is wrongly convicted of killing his wife but is sent to prison for two life term sentences. Whilst in prison, Andy struggles early on to cope but soon befriends a long term prisoner named Ellis Boyd “Red” Redding, (Morgan Freeman) who teaches him about prison life. They soon become friends and Andy becomes more likeable to the prison warden who is a corrupt warden that cannot be trusted. The movie gives us a deep incite into the pain and hardship of prison life and deals well with the subject of being institutionalized and has a strong message of hope especially in adverse situations.

Terminator 2 – Judgment Day (1991)

The terminator, the T-101 model (Arnold Schwarzenegger) has been sent this time to protect Sarah Connor’s son, John Connor in order that the resistance movement will prevail against the machines and Skynet. John Connor is just a kid who doesn’t realize the danger that he faces from a more advanced terminator, the T-1000 model that is trying to kill him. The scene is set to see which terminator will prevail and the movie doesn’t disappoint us as action is guaranteed throughout and we are pleased with the outcome.

Magic Starring Anthony Hopkins (1978)

Anthony Hopkins delivers a superb performance as the struggling magician, Corky Withers who has trouble communicating with his audience until he performs his ventriloquist act with his dummy named “Fats”. The problem for Corky is that he begins to think the dummy is real and he converses with Fats all the time in everything he does. Corky slowly begins to lose his mind and we are taken on a journey of suspense and a thrilling conclusion to a very good movie.

The Green Mile (1999)

Bond is hell bent on revenge and he will not rest until Sanchez and his men pay for what they have done.

“FED UP” – A New Film Report

Run-don’t walk-to this film! It may prolong your health, your life and the life of your kin. It’s no laughing matter– seeing chubby children waddle around after a few years of getting wrongly socked with an addiction to sugar or its camouflaged surrogates with names like fructose, malto dextrin, and xanthan gum- plus some others.
