Almost Famous, an instant classic from writer-director Cameron Crowe, celebrates its 20th anniversary of its theatrical release in 2000. Cameron Crowe draws on his real-life experiences writing for Rolling Stone to tell this semi-autobiographical story. The things that William Miller (Patrick Fugit) experiences are things that Crowe did in real life. They say to write what you know, right? In any event, William doesn’t exactly have the best home life. His mom (Frances McDormand), recently…"Almost Famous Celebrates 20th Anniversary"
The Irishman utilizes current de-aging technology but the film is another epic masterpiece in filmmaking from Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese. Netflix may have released Roma last year but The Irishman is its biggest test yet. With a legendary filmmaker at the helm, it shows that Netflix isn’t playing around. Scorsese is a legend in the industry–this goes without saying. The only question now is will those among the old guard consider this film during awards…"The Irishman: Another Martin Scorsese Masterpiece"
X-Men: Days of Future Past is certainly one of the best films in the entire X-Men series and unites both the new and old casts with stakes on the line. After being set up in The Wolverine, the action starts in 2023. By this point, the elder Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Erik Lehnsherr (Ian McKellan) have gotten over their differences. The two of them are working together in order to save both mutants and…"X-Men: Days of Future Past – Road to Dark Phoenix"
X-Men: The Last Stand is practically non-existent and we owe our thanks to the ret-con provided in X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s a shame that Scott Summers/Cyclops (James Marsden) gets the shaft. Is this because Marsden decided to join Superman Returns? Maybe. Nobody could blame him for doing so with Bryan Singer helming the other film. With Cyclops gone, both Storm (Halle Berry) and Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) take on an increase in leadership. Wolverine…"X-Men: The Last Stand- The Road to Dark Phoenix"
X2: X-Men United is the comic book adaptation that set the benchmark for all comic book films until The Dark Knight came calling five years later. After Alkali Lake was teased at the end of X-Men, the setting plays a larger focus in the sequel. It’s the base for Col. William Stryker (Brian Cox), who happens to take on a more villainous role than Magneto (Ian McKelllan). Stryker is no fan of mutants and lets…"X2: X-Men United – The Road to Dark Phoenix"

Charles, known as the Professor, believes that mutants can co-exist with humanity. Lehnsherr, known as Magneto, doesn’t…"X-Men – The Road to Dark Phoenix"
Tell it to the Bees certainly means well but the reality is that 1950s British love story could very well be something that transpires today. Based on Fiona Shaw’s novel, the film tells the story of how Lydia Weekes (Holliday Grainger) and son Charlie Weekes (Gregor Selkirk) came to be involved with Dr. Jean Markham (Anna Paquin). Dr. Markham hadn’t lived in the small British town since leaving as a teenager. She’s town returned to take…"Tell it to the Bees: A Different Love Story"
