“Dangerous liaisons with good intentions: the matchmaking games in Emmanuel Mouret’s romantic comedy “Shall We Kiss?” may backfire, but nobody is seriously hurt. The players in this mouth-watering Gallic soufflé are so attractive, well mannered and comfortably grounded in the bourgeois world that you needn’t fear for their well-being, minor heartaches notwithstanding.” More»

The Godfather has been so highly praised and deeply analyzed since its release that it’s easy to forget it’s a real movie, not a filmmaking class or a dissertation. But at its heart, it’s a simple story about the forces that draw families together and splinter them apart. The family in question just happens to be The Family. More»

Known for their mellow country rock sounds, Cowboy Junkies‘ music is grounded in traditional country, blues, and folk, yet drifts along in a sleepy, narcotic haze that clearly bares the stamp of the Velvet Underground.

Please note the date for this film is June 19. Re-Animator (1985), directed by Stuart Gordon and based on the novel by H.P. Lovecraft, stars Jeffrey Combs as Herbert West. West is a medical student with a plan to cheat death. The only problem is that West will do anything to succeed in his experiments. This macabre tale also has a great sense of humor that enables you to let your guard down only to be terrified all over again. You’ll never see another film like this…well, until you watch Bride of Re-Animator.

"It was the beginning of the end of the great American Western," John Carpenter says of 1960's The Magnificent Seven, which he describes as the genre's "last hurrah" before television and Sergio Leone revamped it. It's hard to claim the classic American Western survived the '60s intact, but it went out on a high note. More»
