He is also rather well known for his strong British accent. His replication of the accent is flawless and you would never know that he was born and raised in Oregon.

Film Review: The Brazen Bull (2010)

The Brazen Bull 2010

M-feature-film-1

Synopsis: NA Review: What is there to say about the films of the Cole Brothers? Well, there is not much to say since not much is known. And I have to say, I would like to know more.

Film Review: Alien: Origin (2012)

Alien: Origin (2012)

SYNOPSIS: A movie created from “found footage” of a lost military expedition that exposes the origins of life on earth.

SYNOPSIS: The story centers on a group of strangers trapped in a time warp house where a terrible event transpired exactly 100 years prior. REVIEW: I truly believe that Luke Goss cannot be scathed.

juan-of-the-dead

SYNOPSIS: 50 years after the Cuban Revolution, a new Revolution is about to begin. REVIEW: “Shaun of the Dead” set the bar incredibly high for what has come to be known as the “zombedy”.

Since then, there have been a slew of zombedies that have ranged from horrible to hilarious but lacked the heart and soul of “Shaun”. The zombie film … Continue reading
