The_Legend_of_Billie_Jean_1985-movie-Helen-Slater-Christian-slater-4

SYNOPSIS: A Texas teenager cuts her hair short and becomes an outlaw martyr with her brother and friends. REVIEW: One of the true 1985 essential films of that year, “The Legend of Billie Jean” is a movie that has taken quite some time to arrive for viewers (let alone bluray). The DVD itself wasn’t released until year 2011 with its bluray finally shelving in 2014. I tend to place this film into a “cult” film … Continue reading

Stranded-christian-slater-2013-movie-5

SYNOPSIS: Four isolated astronauts on board a bio-dome space craft, experience a ghostly intercession after a meteor storm, leading to paranoia, fear and death. REVIEW: Director – Roger Christian Starring – Christian Slater, Brendan Fehr, Amy Matysio Stranded is a typical sci-fi B-movie. Nothing too terribly great, nothing too terribly bad. What’s kind of fascinating is the impressive roster that it brings to the table. Let’s face it, Christian Slater and Brendan Fehr are no … Continue reading

Film Review: The River Murders (2011)

The-River-Murders-2011

SYNOPSIS: A homicide detective, Ray Liotta, while investigating a series of murders becomes the prime suspect when the FBI uncovers his close personal ties to all the victims.

He has had a bit of a rocky career, even sometimes going WAY over the top or being WAY out of place (“In The Name of the … Continue reading
