Films That Mean A Lot To Us: PUMP UP THE VOLUME

PumpUpTheVolume

Growing up, my local video store, Major Video, was god to me. I lived across the street and to say that I spent hours in that place EVERY day after school would be the understatement of the year. It was like my second home. Looking over every single box, cardboard standout, and even forking over […]

The man child is a concept that feels pretty heavy in male driven comedies, more in particular to those starring Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler. Adult men who refuse to grow up and partake in toilet humor rack up box office tickets and seemingly influence a generation of young adults surrounded by statistics provided by […]

Beyond Fright Review: COMET

Comet

We’ve all been there, crossing paths with someone who is able to completely take you back and keep you enthralled just at the idea of spending more time talking to them.

Beyond Fright Review: 10 CENT PISTOL

10Cent

10 CENT PISTOL opens up with two police officers investigating a silent alarm at the front door of Harris (Thomas Ian Nicholas, AMERICAN PIE, HALLOWEEN RESURRECTION). His reaction to find the police at his door proves to be of suspicion as the sweat rolls down and his need to get them to leave only encourages […]
