Whether you are a professional actor, have worked a little or are just starting out, you constantly have to redefine where you are at in your acting career and have a game plan to move forward.

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 07:22:34 -0600

The Entertainment Industry is Becoming Less Entertaining

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 07:54:09 -0600

Almost weekly, those who believe the public worships them as great and entitled to adoration, hold another award ceremony to prove they are loved and have the ear of the Nation to listen to them spew their hatred on every topic of which they disagree.

It is not only the baseball players who are packing up to head to either Florida or Arizona for Spring Training, but another group of men crucial to the game.

Some fans, in addition to many players and managers, might suggest at various points that these guys should have brought some glasses along as well.

The Blue Max

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 11:02:54 -0600

The Bird With The Crystal Plumage - Dario Argento's Giallo Masterpiece

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 14:39:31 -0600

I am a big fan of Italian giallo movies, and one of my all time favourites in this genre is The Bird With The Crystal Plumage (1970). The Bird With The Crystal Plumage - which was the first instalment in the Animal Trilogy, and was followed by The Cat o' Nine Tails (1971) and Four Flies on Grey Velvet (1972) - was also the first giallo movie that Dario Argento directed, on his way to making his own significant mark in this hugely popular category of filmmaking.

The House On Haunted Hill 1999 Review

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 14:38:11 -0600

Having always been a huge fan of the old 1959 Vincent Price movie, House On Haunted Hill, I must admit that initially I was a little cynical about how this 1999 remake would compare to the original film, knowing how disappointing many such reboots of classic horror flicks have proved to be. However, having now watched it on DVD, I have to say that this new take on the story turned out to be one of the pleasing exceptions. In fact, I thought it was a very good remake indeed.

The Green Inferno Review

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 14:38:08 -0600

If you harbour the guilty pleasure of gory cannibal movies where groups of jungle explorers get captured, stripped naked and subjected to all kinds of hideous mutilations and deaths by hordes of uncivilised, flesh-hungry savages, then I am sure you will enjoy Eli Roth's homage to the cannibal terror genre: The Green Inferno. After a six-year absence from the director's chair, Roth has really delivered here with this jungle shocker. His love for this aspect of the horror genre is so evident in every scene of The Green Inferno, and it's really great to see a director of...

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 09:36:10 -0600

With the advancement in technology, the mass media has soared up greatly in its programs. The television industry in Africa is now featuring numerous programs and airing series of films. Some of these films are very educative, offering the youth with requisite skills and knowledge to face the present and projected future challenges of life. However, other western-oriented films, such as the ever-ascending telenovela shows are negatively impacting on the moral development of the youth in Africa and as such must be monitored or banned entirely.

Impact of American Movies On Our Lives

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 09:31:44 -0600

Popular TV Characters Who Always Wear Bow Ties

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 08:24:16 -0600

Aways a late shopper for Christmas gifts, I was not surprised to find myself at the various retail stores in the mall in late December.

Among the attire labeled for the season, still three months away, was a rack of bow ties.

Dario Argento's Dracula

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 08:04:47 -0600

Being a big fan of the Hammer Dracula films starring Christopher Lee (who, in my opinion, was the best Dracula ever), I always tend to view modern reboots of Stoker's famous vampire lord with a certain degree of cynicism. For me, all the Dracula films since Christopher Lee's have failed to recapture the magic and sheer entertainment value of the Hammer vampire, concentrating far too much on making the Count a sad, misunderstood, teen-appealing pinup boy rather than the traditionally terrifying, bloodsucking monster that we all come to expect.

Wes Craven - A Tribute

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 08:04:36 -0600

Wes Craven, one of my all time favourite horror directors, sadly passed away in August 2015, aged 76.

Hollywood Needs A Late Night Comedy Show That Trashes Left-Leaning Politics

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 16:19:59 -0600

Have you ever watched late night comedy shows and thought to yourself that the constant bombardment of Republicans, Tea Party Folks, and Donald Trump just was not funny anymore? Yep, me too, and as a right-leaning libertarian, I just think it is persnickety, victimhood, progressive poop. What's even more interesting is that all these shows are essentially the same, and they all compete against one-another, while all the right-leaning folks tune out. From a marketing and branding standpoint that just makes no sense, but their ideological slant doesn't allow them to seek viewers outside this "hate speech" neo-liberal bubble - no wonder they cannot believe they lost the election - they lived in their own living room echo chamber.

A Brief Insight Within the Realm of Movie Theaters

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:00:19 -0600

Classic Sitcom Characters Chosen To Appear In Fictional TV Commercials

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:19:23 -0500

Commercials have always been a necessary nuisance throughout the history of television, since those ads serve as the primary source of revenue for the shows people love to watch. While most of them are forgettable or even regrettable, some spots have actually become as memorable as the shows themselves. The Super Bowl provides a good example of this, traditionally airing some of the most enjoyable ads ever.

Confessions of a Binge Watcher

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 07:32:38 -0500

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 14:51:46 -0500

New Version Of Game Show Is A Match For the Classic Of Yesteryear

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 15:01:04 -0500

More often than not, attempts to revive new versions of bygone TV shows do not fare so well. A recent exception of course would be "Hawaii Five-0", which has been successfully re-created by the CBS network. Part of the reason that series works in its new incarnation is the fact that it is a drama, a genre which has been traditionally more successful than remakes of other shows.

A Different Image

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 13:17:28 -0500

Recently I have re-visited a number of old movies I saw as a child, movies that I thought were wonderful when I first saw them. While some of them are still exciting to watch, others are not. As a young lad I didn't know how movies were made, so I didn't give things much thought.

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 09:10:52 -0500

When The Jungle Book movie released a few months ago, The Guardian in its review wrote that 'hyper real digital animation meets old-fashioned storytelling'. Many wondered what the point was in remaking an old Walt Disney classic from the mid 1960s which was undoubtedly a brilliant musical masterpiece. Rudyard Kipling's tale about a jungle boy growing up in the jungles of India was simply fascinating enough in the book version and the original animated version lived up to expectations.

The Science Fiction Movies That Have That Real Sense Of Classic Science Fiction

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 06:19:13 -0500

Sure, Star Wars and Star Trek movies are two of the greatest science fiction classics ever created, but they are based in futuristic realism and not 1950's mystical senses. The first appearance of "Star Trek" as T.V. episodes was great science fiction but the movies that came out in later years were set as futuristic realism out of the true classic science fiction sense. I enjoyed watching "Independence Day" but was excited for "Mars Attacks" which came out shortly after "Independence Day". I was baffled at why "Mars Attacks" wasn't released before "Independence Day" because I knew "Independence Day" was going to be a mega hit.

I guess maybe the "Mars Attacks" makers thought it would do just fine after "Independence Day" got everyone whooped up into a science fiction fever but that wasn't the case.

Our Outstanding Movie Industry

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 08:03:10 -0500

The degree of plagiarism that has always existed is mind numbing. The worst part is that it exists not only blatantly, which everybody notices and comments on, but also on subtle and nuanced levels; and it is indulged in by the stalwarts of Indian moviedom. How often have we winced at the use of the James Bond theme music in the action sequences of so many Hindi movies of the sixties and the seventies or have been left bemused watching Shammi Kapoor croon Yar Dilruba, the Hindi equivalent of Elvis's Don't be Cruel.
