Movie Review: The Immigrant (2013)

The 1920’s were the culmination of the greatest wave of immigration in American history in which more than 25 million people arrived, mostly from Southern and Eastern Europe, to escape the aftermath of the Great War and its resulting poverty and oppression, or simply to embrace the promise of the “American Dream.” Many of these…

Movie Review: Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

Mystics, saints, and sages throughout the ages have said that life is forever and that love is forever but I don’t think they had vampires in mind. Though around for ages, vampires seem to have become more popular in our society today, perhaps reflecting the corporate consumerism sucking the life out of our society. Though…

Movie Review: Frozen (2013)

When Jill Parrish (Amanda Seyfried) comes home from working the night shift at the diner she finds that her sister Molly (Emily Wickersham) has been abducted from her bed. This triggers horrible memories for Jill, who was herself abducted from her bed the previous year….

Movie Review: Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)

During my younger years, my mother would always tell me outlandish stories. Most of these tales involved animals spontaneously springing to life and adapting anthropomorphic qualities and inspired an overactive imagination, but one fable in particular would always scare me witless. As a superstitious woman, she’d look at me — her words marinated in conviction…
