Free State of Jones | Movie Review

Free State of Jones is a film that dramatizes the life of Newton Knight (Matthew McConaughey).

THE NEON DEMON | Movie Review

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Beauty is only skin deep.  True beauty lies within.  These statements seem simple and straightforward, but our perception of each one can vary based on our experiences in life.  A downtrodden woman with wrinkles in her face and wearing an unkempt outfit while sitting in a wheelchair…

FINDING DORY | Movie Review

As I grow older, I find some films don’t hold up quite as well as the first time I saw them when I was a kid.  The cheesy dialogue and bad storytelling is more apparent and you were pretty forgiving back then of the bad acting.  We found ourselves distracted by other interesting elements such as…

E3 2016 Press Conference Schedule

The Electronic Entertainment Expo is right around the corner, but Sunday, June 12th marks the unofficial beginning of the festivities.
