‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Sequel in the Works

It’s been two decades since the 1993 hit Mrs. Doubtfire first hit screens, and now, seemingly out of nowhere, it’s going to get a sequel.

Director Chris Columbus and Robin Williams will return and Elf writer David Berenbaum will be penning the script. The original film saw Williams, a struggling actor and newly divorced father, take on the persona of a Scottish nanny named Euphegenia Doubtfire in order to be closer to his children. It’s pretty hard to forget the burning fat suit and tire-squashed face mask that helped the film pull in $219 million domestically, $222 million internationally, a …

Film: Blue Ruin
Starring: Macon Blair
Directed by: Jeremy Saulnier

A man taking revenge on the person who murdered his parents whilst overcoming violent obstacles to get to his objective, sounds a bit familiar right? Good thing Blue Ruin is a rare film that can play off of those well-known revenge-thriller tropes while also giving the viewer a lot to chew on morally and psychologically. For a film that is marketed as 2014’s version of Death Wish, Blue Ruin is thankfully a film that begs more from the audience than just a fetishistic need to see blood letting on …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Noah’

Film: Noah
Starring: Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson
Directed By: Darren Aronofsky
Written By: Darren Aronofsky, Ari Handel

The human race has always tried to find meaning for their lives. Having a great creator is a comforting thought. Of course there is someone in the skies that put us on this planet, there is no way we are just a random arrangement of molecules that just so happened to create beings capable of self awareness. That thought has been the source of religion all through the ages. Whether it be the old Egyptian gods like Ra, the Norse warrior …

Art is a hard thing to define. Sure, the first thing that comes to mind is paintings and sculptures, but music and film are also forms of art. The funny thing about art is that it is subjective. Some people will look at a painting by the masters …

Film: Knights Of Badassdom 
Starring: Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn, Peter Dinklage, Summer Glau
Director: Joe Lynch
Writers: Kevin Dreyfuss, Matt Wall

If you met me it would be quite obvious that I love two things: metal and horror. If you got to know me you would learn that I am also a fan of the fantasy genre. Wizards, dragons, knights, and barbarians intrigue me. If you really got to know me you might find out that I play Dungeons and Dragons. Sure, I could just throw a fantasy themed video game on and get my fix that way but …
