Caroline Goodall spoke with Solzy at the Movies over the phone on Wednesday about the upcoming film, The Bay of Silence. Vertical Entertainment will release the film on August 14 in virtual cinemas and Digital/VOD. How’s it going? Caroline Goodall: Great. And you know what? I’m actually looking at your front page of your website and there is Robin—and there we go, yeah. He died yesterday, didn’t he? Thank you for that tribute. No problem.…"Caroline Goodall talks The Bay of Silence"
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD came to an end on Wednesday night following the two-hour series finale after seven seasons. For SEO purposes, I’ve referred to Agents of SHIELD without the periods. Be warned that spoilers will follow if you didn’t watch the series finale. Please continue at your own risk. I mean it. There are spoilers here! The series finale could have gone in any direction. But I guess in some way, I knew that…"Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Ends On A High"
Writer-director Kris Rey spoke with Solzy at the Movies over the phone on Tuesday morning about the recently released I Used To Go Here. I Used To Go Here was just released in select theaters and VOD. How excited are you to finally have the film in front of a wider audience? Kris Rey: I’m very excited to have it in front of a larger audience. It’s been sort of just living quietly on a…"Kris Rey talks I Used To Go Here"
Hook, featuring a grown-up version of the legendary Peter Pan facing off against the captain, offers a nostalgic trip full of adventure. Over two decades before Disney wonder what would happen if Christopher Robin grew up, Steven Spielberg also tackled a similar idea. What if Peter Pan grew up? In this case, Pan becomes a workaholic father known as Peter Banning (Robin Williams). Oh yeah, his wife, Moira (Caroline Goodall), also happens to be Wendy’s…"Hook Still Brings A Smile To My Face"
Jurassic Park III manages to get even darker than the prior films but the sequel doesn’t quite capture the magic of the franchise. Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) heads to Isla Sorna under false pretenses. Assistant Billy Brennan (Alessandro Nivola) joins the Jurassic Park veteran on the trip. Paul (William H. Macy) and Amanda Kirby (Téa Leoni) offer Grant funding if he gives them an aerial tour of the island. Sounds like a good idea,…"Jurassic Park III: The Worst of the Franchise"
The Lost World: Jurassic Park seeks to raise the stakes from the earlier 1993 classic but the sequel doesn’t improve upon the original. Four years later, John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) sends Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Golblum) to an island full of dinosaurs. Malcolm is reluctant to go on the research expedition until learning that girlfriend Dr. Sarah Harding (Julianne Moore) is already on Isla Sorna. At which point, it becomes a rescue mission and Malcolm…"The Lost World: Jurassic Park Raises The Stakes"
CREEM: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine manages to dive into the history of the magazine in a brisk but informative 75 minutes. When I think of music-focused magazines, Rolling Stone and Billboard are among the first that come to mind. CREEM, however, does not. This could possibly be because of when I came of age and started listening to rock and roll. I didn’t get into music until the mid-90s, a few years after…"CREEM: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine"
Cameron Crowe’s Jerry Maguire recently got an upgrade to 4K Ultra HD this past June as a part of the Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Collection. “Show Me The Money!” “Help me help you.” “You complete me.” “You had me at hello.” “The human head weighs eight pounds?” “Kwan.” These are just a few of the phrases that Crowe helped bring into the lexicon. It’s not unfair to say that Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) is…"Jerry Maguire: Show Me The Money!"
Max Reload and the Nether Blasters is a wonderful throwback to the 1980s adventure films we love but with an added mix of gaming. What do The Lord of the Rings, Ghostbusters, and The Mighty Ducks all have in common. They were a group of people who “relied on each other to succeed against a greater evil.” Or so Reggie tells Max. This doesn’t even take into account the Top Gun and Batman references. Fallout…"Max Reload and the Nether Blasters"
Stanley Kubrick’s classic black comedy, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, remains a genius political satire. This is a film that is surprisingly still relevant even some 20 years into the 21st century. Obviously, the film features one of the most iconic lines in cinema history but that’s beside the point. You could still make this film today. There is a lot happening in the span of 94…"Dr. Strangelove Remains A Genius Political Satire"
