• The Goodbye Girl (1977) – Classic Movie Review & Dreyfuss Initiative

    By Melissa Antoinette Garza   As a writer, there are certain films that I watch and walk away saying, “I wish I wrote that.”  12 ANGRY MEN (1957), PSYCHO (1960), and HAROLD AND MAUDE (1971) all had that impact on me.  When I bought THE GOODBYE GIRL (1977), I really didn’t expect anything to hit […]

  • UNFORGETTABLE (2017) – SUSPENSE THRILLER FILM REVIEW

      By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Nothing draws me in more than when a film’s antagonist is an obsessive nut-job.  They’re a guilty pleasure that are without question, chick-flicks.  I’m grateful to my husband for agreeing to take me as I really wanted to see this one. First, I like Katherine Heigl.  I think she’s […]

  • Arrival (2016) Sci-Fi Movie Review

    It’s about time that a film emerged from the shadows which manages to relight the flame for the rather sparked out alien/UFO sci-fi genre. ARRIVAL (2016) brings us an entirely different format and a close encounter that will stick with the audience for years to come, if not for fear then for intrigue. When we […]

  • When the Bough Breaks (2016) – Suspense Movie Review

      By Melissa Antoinette Garza   It’s a Sunday and Steve’s downstairs watching some YOUTUBE shows where best friends play videogames and I’m up here watching some big-screen, Lifetime style, chick-flick thrillers. The first on the list was WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS (2016).  This is actually a lot more terrifying because, come to find out, […]

  • The Dressmaker (2015) – MOVIE REVIEW – BEST FRIEND RECOMMENDED – FREE ON PRIME

    By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I enjoy Kate Winslet as an actress.  Despite disliking the wildly popular TITANIC (1997), I recognize her amazing performance.  In productions like, THE HOLIDAY (2006), THE LIFE OF DAVID GALE (2003) and the phenomenal ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (2004), Winslet revealed her versatility and overall talent as an […]

  • The Windmill (2016) – Horror Movie Review- Free on Netflix

      By Melissa Antoinette Garza It seems like only yesterday that I was perusing the aisles of local video stores hoping to rent horror movies that were worth the watch.  I’d read the back, look at the cover, put it down and pick it back up again before making my decision. Back then, when it […]

  • God’s Club (2015) -Religious Movie Review – Free on Netflix

    By Melissa Antoinette Garza   The past few years have been pretty crazy. I began watching religious films, like GOD’S NOT DEAD (2014) for entertainment value alone.  I wasn’t really a religious person and bounced into and out of Christianity.  It’s only very recently that I felt a solid relationship with God. Don’t get me […]

Rounders (1998) – Casino Thriller Movie Review

By Geno McGahee In 1998, two of Hollywood’s brightest stars would team up in the action/thriller “ROUNDERS.” Matt Damon would play the role of Mike, a talented poker player that would give up the game after a big loss. His friend, Worm, played by Ed Norton, would relight the fire and bring him back to […]
