The Red Wedding: Massacre at the Twins and the End of the Young Wolf Robb Stark

The Red Wedding was one of the major shocks to viewers of the Game of Thrones series, as it was earlier to readers of the novel series A Song of Ice and Fire. What is unclear to many viewers is just how it was that the King in the North, Robb Stark, who had never lost a battle, somehow managed to lose the war in such spectacular fashion. The answer is that despite his undoubted skill on the battlefield, Robb, like the rest of his family seemed to be completely lost when it came to politics.

Top Five Greatest Action Heroes

Most action movies have the same concept. Whether it’s defending the country or the world or saving someone, it typically boils down to good verses evil. What makes an action movie exciting to watch is the actor playing the hero.

Fruitvale Station

Fruitvale Station is the powerful true story of Oscar Grant III, tragically shot on a subway platform in 2009 in Oakland, California. Even if you know the story, the film is real, dramatic and heartbreaking.

“R.I.P.D.” Features Great Chemistry Between Bridges and Reynolds

The movie “R.I.P.D.” was highly-anticipated before its July 2013 entrance because it had a new and interesting twist on the buddy cop formula that Hollywood loves to trot out. The film, starring Ryan Reynolds (“The Green Lantern”) and Jeff Bridges “Crazy Heart”), is about two cops who are likable and good at their jobs, like all buddy cop films must have.

“Turbo” Will Race Into Your Heart

“Turbo” is the latest animated film from DreamWorks, the same company that brought films such as “How to Train Your Dragon” and the “Shrek” series to families all over the world. Unlike many of the recent movies from DreamWorks that have been targeted toward families with slightly older children who appreciate action-packed films about monsters and dragons, “Turbo” aims to please a younger crowd. Similar family-friendly animated racing films such as “Cars” and “Speed Racer” paved the way for “Turbo”; another movie starring a protagonist who wants nothing more than to win the most important race.

“The Way, Way Back” – A New Film Report

Do you ever walk in a movie theatre and sit down and as soon as the movie starts you just know you are going to love the picture and the plot and the characters and the whole pace of everything there? Well, that was my feeling today as I witnessed a treat of a movie that’s called “THE WAY, WAY BACK”.

“R.I.P.D.”: A Supernatural “Men in Black”

Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges take to the streets to deal with the reluctant dead in this blending of a supernatural cum buddy cop film. For people who have seen “Men in Black,” the basic story premise is the same; an everyman gets inducted into the world of the fantastic to deal with rogue elements while having to prove himself and becoming an effective member of the force. However, in this case, it really is a one-way trip-Nick Williams (Ryan Reynolds) is killed near the start of the film in a SWAT raid gone bad when his partner turns on…

Fruitvale Station Tells a Tragic Tale With Conviction

Michael B. Jordan from the film “Chronicle” and the show “Friday Night Lights” stars as a troubled teen faced with a very difficult decision. To stay on the right side of the law, or turn to crime to survive?

What in the World Has Tara Reid Been Up To?

An update on the American Pie Film Actress Tara Reid. The once teen starlet is now a forgotten actress, trying to get back into the Hollywood spotlight with films like Sharknado and Last Call.

The Last Stand Movie Review

I may get straight down to business. The Austrian Oak makes his long awaited return to the big screen in a starring role, and it is in typical Schwarzenegger style. I have no doubt that he was given such a safe role for his return, doing what he has always done, and what he does best, and that is shoot guns as quickly as he shoots one-liners, giving us a great mix of violence and humor in equal proportions.

The To Do List – Movie Review

Set in 1993, “The To Do List” carries on the raunchy tradition of “American Pie” with a little “Easy A” thrown in for good measure. Aubrey Plaza portrays the high school class valedictorian who decides to apply her obsessive tendencies for organization toward losing her virginity (and performing a variety of other sexual tasks in the process) during the summer before college. While the film relies mostly on vulgarity for laughs, the cast provides a few chuckles for those willing to wait for them.

“UNFINISHED SONG” – A New Film Report

This particular film is so worthy in the way it presents not only a moving script written by Paul Andrew Williams but key roles which are notably filled by a couple of the most seasoned movie stars around–namely Terrence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave–plus a wonderfully youthful actress, Gemma Atherton. She plays the therapeutic instructor for a group of senior folks at a day “camp”–where she spends most of her time encouraging them to prepare for singing contests.
