Movie Review: 'Firestarter' Remake Flames Out
The remake of Firestarter is the result of what I call, I.P mining. The idea is to take a relatively memorable property from the past, attach a young movie star, and rake in the profits. That’s the goal anyway. Whether the re-makers of Firestarter will profit from their I.P mining is something only time and box office will tell. What I can tell you about the makers of Firestarter 2022 is that their movie recycling is more akin to composting. It stinks.
The Young and the Restless: Summer returns to Genoa City a changed woman
Summer's new attitude Allison Lanier debuted on Monday as the new Summer Newman Abbott on The Young and the Restless. The character now has a new face and a different perspective on life that is refreshing. At the Abbott, home Summer convinced Kyle Abbott's (Michael Mealor) niece Allie Nguyen (Kelsey Wang) to attend the wedding of Mariah Copeland (Cameron Grimes) and Tessa Porter (Kait Fairbank). Summer even gave Allie a designer gown from Milan to wear.
Anthony's Film Review - 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' (2022)
Once again, I am reviewing a Marvel Cinematic Universe film without having seen all of the key relevant prior films and TV shows. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, as far as I can tell, follows the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home and the Disney+ series WandaVision. It's actually not necessary to have seen those two, because I did see Spider-Man: No Way Home before and it's directly referenced very briefly in just one scene in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and I could still follow the latest events going forward even without watching WandaVision yet. That said, I have not forgotten how many times a good friend of mine who follows the MCU closely has pestered me about seeing WandaVision on Disney+. If anything, I am finally planning to watch all episodes of WandaVision after this film has stirred my curiosity.
Team Cap VS Team Iron Man
So, it’s safe to say that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about as mainstream as a franchise gets nowadays. With the influx of new Marvel fans, I’ve been thinking a lot about the movies and certain characters, especially because the newer fans have different perspectives than us who experienced a lot of the movies at their initial release. This blog post isn’t going to be some superiority thing or gatekeeping thing because I see more fans as an absolute win, rather I just want to analyze the MCU now that I’m older and (mostly) wiser.

Movie Review: 'On the Count of Three' is a Terrific Directorial Debut for Jerrod Carmichael
Mental health experts will tell you that suicidal people will seem happier right before they take their life. It doesn’t always happen that way, but in most cases euphoria sets in once death is certain. The dark dramatic comedy, On the Count of Three, from star and director Jerrod Carmichael, pictures suicide from a different perspective. On the Count of Three is a suicide comedy, a dark comedy, of course, and it captures the kind of feelings mental health experts see in suicidal patients.
My Review of "Batman: The Dark Knight"
Batman: The Dark Knight came out back in 2008 and I still think this is possibly the best Batman movie I've ever seen. It adds so many elements seamlessly throughout the movie. Although the runtime of this movie is extremely long, it really doesn't feel like it. I was glued to my seat throughout the movie not realizing how much time had elapsed.
Villainess Review: Gillian Granger and Lucia Walters (Revenge Best Served Chilled)
While I was enjoying the evening's triumvirate of Game 7s in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, I was also enjoying this Lifetime film, Revenge Best Served Chilled, which was originally titled, A Glass of Revenge. The film centered on Emily Nguyen, a blogger who co-owns a restaurant, Lilla's (named after her late mother) with her father, though she had dreams of becoming a sommelier. Emily's application to join the American Wine Academy ends up accepted, and she is invited by the academy's vice president, Gillian Granger, who did so directly at Lilla's.
Why I Watch Certain Game Shows But Not Others
I have been told that I have a wealth of information about pop culture, history, news, word meanings, and most trivia. Several people have suggested that I become a contestant on a game show on television.
Sometimes Someone's Gots to Die
Many years ago, an amateur graphologist told a business colleague that I was, based on my signature, a serial killer. When she assured the gentleman that she knew the signer of the document and that I was not, in fact, a serial killer, he responded “He may not have killed yet, but I assure you he will.”
Avatar 2 Will Save Theaters
Movie theaters are closing down, ticket prices are skyrocketing, the price of popcorn is staggering, streaming services are dominating the competition, and piracy is never-ending. All this can be defined as a crisis in movie theaters.
The Life of Starlog Magazine
In the days before the internet and social media, one of the means for fans to stay informed was to subscribe to print media. While commercial TV and radio produced some news coverage for fans, the amount of time was limited. Therefore fans could get more in-depth coverage by reading a print story on their favorite movie or show. There were many different fan-oriented magazines back in the day, but one does stand out as being very popular during the 70s and 80s. That was Starlog Magazine.
