The Little Mermaid will always hold a special place in my heart. It was the first movie I saw in theaters, back in 1989, and my love of Disney has only grown since then. Getting a chance to see one of the classics brought to life is always exciting, especially when it’s a show full […]

Review: TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT – The Good, The Sad and the Rusty

by Kevin Brackett / Published: June 21, 2017 at 1:05 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Review: Guy Richie’s ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ Is a Boring Mess

by Kevin Brackett / Published: May 12, 2017 at 4:31 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Hopefully this franchise goes back to the nothingness from whence it came. I never thought I would say that I longed for the 2004 film King Arthur, starring Clive Owen and Keira Knightley.
