Soleil Moon Frye Delivers Nostalgia And Sadness With Kid 90

Soleil Moon Frye has been a staple on our television screens for the last thirty years plus years.  The young actress would steal American hearts as Punky Brewster, which aired on NBC from 1984 to 1986. The show would spawn a cartoon called It’s Punky Brewster and aired right around the same time as Punky Brewster stardom. You might ask yourself or your friends, whatever happened to that girl that played Punky Brewster? Well, Punky Brewster herself has all those answers and much more in the film Kid 90, which she also directed. My wife and I sat down a week ago and watched Kid A. I was instantly hooked in on the film because I recognized an Eddie Vedder song during the opening. Not only does Soleil have great taste in music, but she was also a little J. Edgar Hoover because she filmed and documented her life for years and years. Kid 90 takes an insider look into Soleil’s life as she grows up in Hollywood surrounded by many famous faces. The ups and downs of teenage life …

Swallow Film Review: Visually Stunning And Incredibly Jarring

We have to say kudos to writer/director Carlo Mirabella-Davis on his first narrative feature film “Swallow” which paints a terrifying picture of life for a housewife who is tormented by her past, deeply unsatisfied, and suffering from a very dangerous type of mental illness. Hunter, brilliantly played by actress Haley Bennett, is the portrait of the perfect housewife. She cooks, cleans, and is always eager to please her obnoxious husband Richie, played by Austin Stowell, but what we learn over the course of the film is that things are not always as they appear. Soon Hunter’s facade of living the perfect life begins to crumble, as secrets from her past begin to surface and she develops a mental/eating disorder called Pica, which causes her to want to eat dangerous non-edible items such as marbles, push-pins, batteries and even at one point a screwdriver. This disorder leads to Hunter putting herself in a very dangerous cycle of self-harm to which her husband and his equally terrible parents show zero sympathies. She is a woman trapped and stuck in a cycle of …

Nightmare Cinema Delivers The Horror Fan’s Deserve To See

This past Christmas I treated myself and got a subscription to Shudder the thriller and horror streaming service. Shudder has a lot of treats to offer horror fans including the hit series Creepshow and Joe Bob Briggs Last Drive-In just to name a few. The movies Shudder has to offer range from the supernatural to the slashers. One of the selling points in getting Shudder was the movie that I’m about to review called Nightmare Cinema. I’m a huge Mick Garris fan, and when I  heard about this film while listening to his podcast Post Mortem, I couldn’t wait to check it out. Nightmare Cinema was the first film I watched on Shudder. The film is an anthology series that follows five strangers into an abandoned theater where they watch their deepest fears playout on the big screen. It was a treat to see Mickey Rourke playing the Projectionist who owns the twilight zone like theater and his different conversations with his victims Each story in the movie is directed by a well-known director in the realm of horror. These …

IT Chapter Two Review

We went and saw a movie I have been waiting all year to see, IT Chapter Two. The movie will hit theater’s this week and will surely be a delight for fans of Stephen King and his killer clown creation Pennywise. The movie was well worth the wait, and don’t be surprised if you see more Pennywise costumes this Halloween. Pennywise has returned after a twenty-seven-year slumber and begins feasting on the children of Derry once more. The Loser’s Club who first defeated Pennywise years before must return to their old town to defeat the killer clown once and for all. Whoever did the casting to cast the adult Loser’s should win an award. Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, and Andy Bean all portray the adult Losers. I got to admit Bill Hader hit it out of the park playing adult Richie Tozier is a very successful comedian, but after learning about Derry, he loses all his confidence. Just like the 2017 film, IT Chapter Two follows the 1986 novel by horror writer …
