Halloween 2018 Review: Michael Meyers Is Back For More Blood

By Tim Nasson It’s hard to believe that the movie H20, the 20th anniversary sequel to the seminal 1978 horror movie Halloween, is 20 years old. I interviewed its stars, Jamie Lee Curtis and Josh Hartnett (who played her son) and thought to myself, why did the studio make this? It was awful. Michelle Williams […]

By Tim Nasson – At first glance, especially taking a look at the poster and trailer of the movie Searching, you might think that it is just another low budget, B-movie thriller, reminiscent of the recent films Friend Request, Unfriended and Unfriended: Dark Web, which feature a bunch of unknown teens getting into all sorts […]

Christopher Robin Tugs At Your Heartstrings

By Tim Nasson: The retirement of one’s childhood, and graduation into adolescence and ultimately adulthood, is one of life’s most unsettling events.

And then work and family, but mostly work, occupies much of […]
