As I’ve gotten older my mind has opened up to more than the basic game experience. […]

    What’s old is new again – Mario Puzo’s The Godfather: The Complete Epic 1901-1959

    I am a huge fan of the Godfather films. The first is certainly one of my favorite films ever and Part II is arguably one of, if not the best sequel ever filmed. I think what draws me to them is not the crime element, but the character study of the Corleone family and Al […]

  • Looking at The Innocents for the 1st Time

    Directed by Jack Clayton I picked this up during the semi-annual Criterion Collection sale at Barnes and Noble. I have heard about this film’s legacy for years and had never seen it. I always like to hear of successful genre films from an older era because I feel viewers nowadays dismiss them unfairly. Here we […]

    At this very moment across the country, various Barnes and Noble locations are having a sale on Criterion Collection titles. If you are unfamiliar, The Criterion Collection is a distribution group that collects classic and contemporary films and markets them to cinephiles moreso than the general public. Since Criterion releases are usually higher priced than […]

  • A Second Chance Part II Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3

    For the second part of my series on films I’m revisiting, I bring the focus to one that has been the scorn of many comic fans since it’s release. Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3. Now for some perspective. This film came out in 2007. I had massive expectations for it, being a fan of the first […]
