Web Series That You Should Binge This Week

More and more people have decided to cancel their cable subscriptions, mostly due to the increasing number of high quality web series on streaming platforms. Of course, premium content services still do cost money, but the large catalogs of movies and original content found on those services usually can justify the expense.  The absence of commercials is also a huge bonus. The Man In The High Castle This alternate history web series imagines a world where Germany and Japan...

Great Summer Films To Check Out This Weekend

Studios love to release huge blockbusters in the summer, and it’s easy to understand why.  The kids are out of school, theaters are air conditioned, and it’s a lot easier to enjoy films with the knowledge that you won’t turn into a Popsicle on your way to the car. There are some good films coming out this weekend, just in time for the inevitable heat wave that will make you retreat into the air conditioned wings of the local multiplex. The Conjuring 2 In...

Reboots And Remakes That Should Be Booted

“Hollywood seems to be running out of ideas,” said every moviegoer since the 1930s.  The fact is, reboots and remakes are as old as cinema itself, and in plenty of cases they can actually be quite good.  After all, who is honestly going to say that the James Bond franchise became worse with the 2006 reboot of Casino Royale? That said, some remakes and reboots are simply awful, unnecessary, and destructive to the art of cinema.  Here are the films that should...

Comedy Series on Netflix To Binge

While Netflix may not yet have every single movie and TV series known to man available to stream, at a little shy of ten dollars a month you can get a lot.  The dilemma is not that there’s nothing to watch, it’s that there’s almost too much, and committing to a series that ends up being a bust halfway through is more than a little disappointing. It’s a good thing to be armed with a little knowledge before selecting a series, and these are some of the...

Most Underrated James Bond Movies

The James Bond film series has had a storied history, and with the franchise over 50 years old now, there are bound to be some films that have been sadly overlooked.  These three films, however, are absolutely worth the watch and are excellent additions to the series. Tomorrow Never Dies After the smash hit, and all around excellent film Goldeneye, the Bond franchise went in a surprising direction with Tomorrow Never Dies, largely because it was a rather radical...

Indie Films To See In Theaters

With all of the terrible films out there, the indie scene can be rather refreshing, with original plots, good acting, and film making that doesn’t replace critical dialog with a series of explosions. Papa Hemingway in Cuba Admittedly this one has not had a lot of love critically, but fans of the famous author have found it to be well done, and at the very least, well acted.  It also has the distinction of being the first American film since the Cuban Revolution to be...

Highly Underrated Films You Need To Watch

There are lots of films out there to choose from, but it’s sometimes hard to know what films are quality and which ones are pure garbage. We’d hate to steer you wrong in the quest to find a decent rental, so here are three films that are not only criminally underrated, but actually worth seeking out. Moon Moon is one of those films that makes the audience question the nature of human existence, and what makes something human.  The film is well acted with Sam...
