“The Beach House” Can’t Fully Accommodate Guests

Contained horror has an added bit of resonance right now. After all, many of us are still essentially stuck in our homes.

“Palm Springs” Is A Phenomenally Smart And Winning Romantic Comedy

The high concept romantic comedy seems to be a thing of the past. Whether it has to do with the cost of producing one, audience tastes, or just the changing of the times, a rom-com that mixes in something else tends to be rare. At least on the independent scene,[...]

Brian Tyler Stops By To Chat About “Yellowstone” And Working With Taylor Sheridan

“Relic” Mixes Horror With Some Genuine Emotional Anguish

Elevated horror is all the rage these days. The genre goes through phases, to put it mildly.

“Hamilton” Will Not Be Eligible For The Academy Awards

Just a few days ago, I pondered this very question. In light of Hamilton debuting to such huge acclaim (no surprise), thoughts of Oscar began dancing around folks’ heads.
