Review: 'Halloween' (2018)
Hello, one and all. Here it is. The longest 40-year wait for a direct sequel for a classic horror/slasher film that redefined the genre much as the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock film Psycho did.
The 'List: Aretha Franklin (1942–2018)
Hello, one and all. As I sadly remind myself, our gods and idols are mere mortals in the end. We've lost our fair share of many, but, just today (as this fan had written this spur-of-the-moment eulogy when the announcement was official), my heart sank like a stone when one of our musical goddesses finally joined the invisible heavenly choir. She truly earned the title of the Queen of Soul.
Halloween Horrorthon 2018 - The Finalists
Hello one and all. So, it's 2018 and I'm laying a few key choices for which movies to watch on the eve of all Saints. As I did last year, I managed to add a new movie, which was the defacto belated sequel, Jigsaw which really should've died along with the torture porn craze that it started with. No big surprise, the one on everyone's lips is the David Gordon Green reboot of Halloween which is said to be a direct 40-year-old sequel to the classic 1978 John Carpenter classic which is also bypassing all of the franchise films in between. We will see if that film makes the cut as the final one in my annual horrorthon.
The 'List: 4th of July
Hello one and all. Barbecues, fireworks, beaches, picnics, blasting really good music, family and friends having fun - all mainstays of Independence Day; the holiday we celebrate every July 4th. How this holiday came about of course, was when the Declaration of Independence was signed by our founding fathers in the year of 1776.
Review: 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' 2018
Hello, one and all. The first Jurassic World feature in 2015 would be the ultimate mind-blower for me. As a fan of the first two Jurassic Park films with a so-so feeling for the third, much shorter installment, I always knew what the charm was of this series.
Review: 'Hereditary' 2018
Hello, one and all. After a lengthy sabbatical, I have returned. So far, in my humble opinion, 2018 is going down as the worst year for movies — ever! I exaggerate not! So far, with at least two exceptions: Black Panther and Incredibles 2, no other film has been even remotely worth my interest.
The 'List: 'Grease' at 40
"Danny, is this the end?" "Of course not. It's only the beginning". John Travolta as Danny Zuko to Olivia Newton-John's Sandy Olsen in the film's opening.
The 'List: Paul McCartney
Hello, one and all. My buddy Calvin Cherry has written a tribute to one of his favorite artists. He was one of the founders of one of the greatest rock bands out of the UK. Then, in 1970, the Fab Four went their separate ways and one of the four would forge an enduring career solo, with a group, with fellow artists, and even his late wife, Linda. My friend has the floor—introducing the handsome ex-Beatle known as Sir...
