Film Review – FURIOUS 7

It’s pretty unbelievable we’re up to the seventh film in The Fast & The Furious series. The words in the titles may have juxtaposed and the casts have mixed and matched over the years, but needless to say Furious 7 holds true to the core themes of the series. Loyalty and family remain as important as the action, tricked out cars ...

Review – 12 MONKEYS

Syfy’s new series 12 Monkeys, which debuts Friday night, despite the obvious on the surface similarities, takes great strides to set itself apart from the 1995 film starring Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt and Madeleine Stowe (under the signature off kilter brilliant direction of Terry Gilliam).
