It's been almost 23 years since we last cheered on the District Five, Junior Goodwill Team USA, Eden Hall Mighty Ducks and the country is worse off for it. In 1992, The Mighty Ducks kicked off a string of Disney children's sports films--which were all basically rip-offs of The Bad News Bears--which almost never happened. When NHL… Continue reading Disney Pre-9/11 Video Vault: The Mighty Ducks Franchise

The Little Mermaid and the Blaxploitation of Twitter
Just like any other organic underground counter-culture, we seem to forget that the media--not to mention the social media platform itself--are fully aware of the existence of these things and how they can manipulate them to their advantage.
Going Solo: A Wizard World Story
Every year there is a palpable anticipation for our local Philadelphia version of Wizard World Comic Con, and 2018 was no exception.

The Road to Star Wars: Episode IX
In my last Star Wars-heavy article, I put forth an honest and complete review of The Last Jedi. I can't fully comprehend the level of hatred the film is getting; but I think it's mainly based on what I referred to as "broken nostalgia" and perhaps a little bit of good ol' fashioned butt-hurt over not getting… Continue reading The Road to Star Wars: Episode IX

Is Harvey Weinstein the Iceberg…or Just the Tip?
In the past week, we've seen a very carefully orchestrated and targeted media campaign to officially sink the often-accused and decades-long-known serial Hollywood Creep, Harvey Weinstein. There isn't much to explain that articles from The New Yorker, New York Times, etc haven't already covered; but these allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior (to say the least) have been… Continue reading Is Harvey Weinstein the Iceberg…or Just the Tip?

I don’t know why, but November was a popular month for horror in 1990. The three films named in this survey released that year resided in the month of November. Tim Curry as “Pennywise the Clown” would scare a generation of youngsters in the TV miniseries based on Stephen King’s 1986 best-selling novel IT.

‘Auto Shop’ Director’s Statement
Throughout my career as an independent filmmaker, I've maintained two philosophies: write and produce what you know, and only what you feel you can manage completely autonomously. I've seen many filmmakers--to varying success--bite off far more than they can chew; producing high concept action/horror films for relatively no budget, relying on the "Robert Rodriguez" method… Continue reading ‘Auto Shop’ Director’s Statement
18 Years Later or A Smokey Holiday
To some folks April 20th is a holiday for stoners; to others it’s a chance to point out that it was Adolf Hitler’s birthday.

I was thirteen years old, my mom was… Continue reading 18 Years Later or A Smokey Holiday

Star Wars Goes Rogue
When Disney ripped the Star Wars universe from the cold dead hands of George Lucas, many were afraid of the franchise's future. Those people were wrong.

Typically, Disney's misfires are attempts at future… Continue reading Star Wars Goes Rogue

Disney has been having varying success with its live-action recreations of classic animated films.
