Crimson Peak: Movie Review

Full disclosure here, gothic horror is not my bag generally speaking. I once knew a girl who insisted we sit around watching Bram Stoker’s Dracula at least three nights a week and by the end of that summer I wanted to dig up Stoker’s corpse, slap him awake and then slap him back to death […]

The Rum Diary Movie Review

The Rum Diary Movie Review – When Hunter S. Thompson wrote The Rum Diary in 1961 he surely didn’t think he’d have to wait 37 years to see it published.  By the time the novel was released in 1998 Thompson had already achieved his cult-like status.  The Rum Diary was likely released to capitalize on the […]

In Time Movie Review

In Time gives its’ audience an alternative look at a different type of reality where time becomes currency and outer beauty and the ability to buy time is powerful. Everyone stops aging at 25, and that’s where the clock, inscribed on your forearm, begins to count down.  You are only given 1 more year to […]
