Like most people I've found myself doing a fair amount of binge watching the past few months. Listen, I'll be honest I'm just feeling my way through 2020 like everyone else. I’ve found having a show or two to watch while I escape from the world around me has been a good thing for my overall mental health.
Don't you just miss the 90's? In this post, I'm going to bring us back to the 90's with all nostalgia food, games, and whatnot. I'm sure you miss the 90's as much as I do. Some things we can't even get or experience it anymore nowadays. These are what made our childhood better because we get to experience so many different things while growing up.
Do you know what I do sometimes when I want to watch something but don't feel like watching anything too serious, deserving of too much brain power, or too long?
Stoner comedy film, Friday, came out in theaters in 1995. Brought in a total of 28.2 million dollars. The movie instantly became a hit due to the chemistry of the two best friends who starred in this popular film.
Iconic duo, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis have a classic way at humor in their early movies. A different generation, but humor that reaches all ages. Martin was known for his charm, good looks, and his smooth Italian singing. In the movies, he was the guy who always got the girl. Lewis was the comedy relief. He had that high squeaky voice that played Martin's silly buddy.

Do you ever wonder if the appliances throw a party as soon as you leave the house?
If you told me that I could only save one legendary film director’s career and the rest were to be destroyed, I would probably choose to save Billy Wilder’s remarkable catalog. Don’t get me wrong, I would miss Alfred Hitchcock or Michael Curtiz or Ernst Lubitsch but Wilder’s catalog has movies I simply cannot live without. The Seven Year Itch, The Apartment, Ace in the Hole, and Some Like It Hot are movies I could not think of losing forever.
The Big Sleep is the classic on this week's Everyone's a Critic Movie Review Podcast.
As a film critic one of my most reviled and despised opinions is that I don't care for John Carpenter’s 1978 horror movie Halloween. I find the film to be amateurish, if I may be frank, with an almost absurd level of over-praise for its filmmaking. Thankfully, my disdain for Halloween was not enough to sour me on the work of John Carpenter as a whole. I was lucky that I stuck with Carpenter as movies like The Fog, Escape from New York and the movie I am writing about today, 1988’s They Live, are genuinely brilliant movies, far more worthy of praise than Halloween.
In honour of its 40th anniversary of release, ScreenRant decided to release an article detailing why horror classic 'The Shining' (1980) has 'not aged well'. In this article, ScreenRant labelled the movie as one that is misogynistic and flippant towards such pressing and sensitive issues as familial abuse.
In the early 1980s, a cop drama debuted that was unlike any other as this one had two women as the lead detectives. Starring Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly, Cagney and Lacey tackled controversial subjects and didn't shy away from topics that could make viewers uncomfortable. It had a special knack for episodes that challenged belief systems. This was never more visible than in the second episode of the sixth season of the series.
