In the final chapter of the Back to the Future trilogy, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) finds himself traveling back to 1885 to once again rescue the life of Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd). The culture shock is even greater, as are the laughs and the action, as Marty and Doc Brown battle love, time and wild west outlaws.
Talk about going out on a high note. Back to the Future Part III takes what really worked…

There's so much to be said about this movie but it's so hard to put it into words. I suppose that could be said about just about anything directors Joel and Ethan Coen have done. But A Serious Man is by far their most personal and psychological film. It's the story of a man, Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg), whose life is unravelling right before his eyes. His wife (Sari Lennick) is leaving him for Sy Ableman (Fred…

Sweeney Todd is a masterpiece of musical theater, mixing high drama and terrifying situations with some of the darkest comedy you'll get anywhere. It stands to reason that this sort of thing should be adapted to the screen by somebody like director Tim Burton, and he did a marvelous job at it. A lot of things had to be changed to make it work as a modern-day musical, but the changes work and the things that aren't changed…

Although Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a newer adaptation of a work that had previously been adapted into a film that is famous in its own right, I don't feel like you can compare the two. I only start with this because when this film came out that's pretty much all anybody did was compare them, but I feel like they're different enough with different angles on the story. That being said, I find Charlie and the…

It's been several decades since his death, but Edward D. Wood Jr. is still considered one of if not the worst director in the history of film. Not many people however consider the frustration and sheer will-power he put into every one of his films. His love of storytelling drove him through the good times and the bad, and he had plenty of bad. This biopic stands as a celebration of not only his compassion but the very…

It's hard to describe Pee-wee Herman (Paul Reubens). He's the original man-child, before it was overplayed and annoying. In his first movie, his prized bicycle is stolen by his rival Francis (Mark Holton) and he must travel the United States to find it. It's a hilarious adventure that everyone can enjoy.
Paul Reubens created in Pee-wee a character that is relatable on levels you wouldn't have expected. He is in…
