‘The Cursed’ Movie Review: See the haunting thriller this week

A lot of times horror films either go all out on the supernatural or all out on the gore. Directed by Sean Ellis, ‘The Cursed’ gives viewers a good amount of both. Starring Boyd Holbrook, Kelly Reilly and Alistair Petrie, ‘The Cursed’ is set in France during the late 1800s. “A once-peaceful remote country villageContinue reading “‘The Cursed’ Movie Review: See the haunting thriller this week”

The magic of Estes Park, why you need to travel here

It’s one of those “get to know you” questions. “Beaches or mountains?” My answer is “both.” While I love the beaches of Florida and South Carolina, that’s nothing like being in the mountains of Colorado. Specifically, Estes Park. As a kid, my family and I traveled to Estes Park fairly often. We’d all pack upContinue reading “The magic of Estes Park, why you need to travel here”

An inside look at the one-take horror film, ‘Those Who Walk Away’

Most films I review, I have no personal connection to. ‘Those Who Walk Away’ is a different story. In 2019, I heard that an “LA film crew” was in central Illinois, where I live & work.

Obi-Wan Kenobi series debuting May 25 on Disney Plus

The time has finally come. Star Wars broke the news just before 4:00 p.m. (CT) Wednesday with a photo of Obi-Wan walking through the desert.

Since the prequels were released, the Star Wars fan base has been divided. So it’s no surprised the Sequel trilogy only fanned those flames. This time, prequel & original trilogy fans were bashing on Disney’s latest attempt to revive the Star Wars universe. Complaints about Rey’s origin story, the return of Palpatine, and a lackContinue reading “Star Wars: Filoni, Favreau are giving us the best SW content we’ve seen in years”
