January Movie Preview: A Haunted Resolution

The ball is dropped, the Christmas trees are down (or it will be soon if you are procrastinating like me). So let’s get into a new year of movies. A number of the movies that will be in the award show conversations will be expanding this month. But in terms of the wide release titles,…

August Movie Preview: Ride the Heat Wave

Last month’s list of releases had me thinking Hollywood was going for a quality over quantity approach to their movies. Well forget that because there are 15 August movies hitting the big screens and most of them aren’t going to force the public out to an opening day screening. But since Dwayne “Biggest Movie Star…
