Table 19 (2017) – Available on Amazon & VUDU

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   If there is one type of movie that I adore, it’s when a band of misfits unify and find out things about themselves that they didn’t know.  LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE (2006), WE ARE THE MILLERS (2013), SUICIDE SQUAD (2016) and most recently THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE (2017) are all […]

Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive (2017) Free on Netflix

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I always liked Tracy Morgan.  I loved him on Saturday Night Live.  He was on it when it was actually funny.  He was the best part of 30 ROCK and was hilarious in the comedy FIRST SUNDAY (2008), the underrated COP OUT (2010) and most recently FIST FIGHT (2017). […]

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 […]

Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) – New Release Family Film Review

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza I was never as opposed to THE SMURFS (2011) or THE SMURFS 2 (2013) as most people.  Some of my favorite online critics and podcast hosts voiced how much they loathed the films, but I enjoyed them, for what they were.  I can’t speak for the later ALVIN and THE […]

Why Him? (2016)  – Comedy Film Review – Available on Amazon

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I saw a trailer for WHY HIM? (2016) a few months back and made a mental note to see it.  I just recently saw the same ad and thought it was finally coming to theaters only to see it was already available on AMAZON.  I rid myself of cable a […]

The Choice (2016) Romance Film Review – Free on AMAZON PRIME

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   It feels like spring in Western Mass and despite enjoying horror films and everything strange and dark, I do have a soft side.  I’m a girl.  I grew up on soap operas which with few exceptions are obsolete now.  After surrounding myself in all the dreary, haunting and scary […]

The Reunion (2011) – John Cena & Amy Smart ACTION MOVIE REVIEW

By Geno McGahee WWE’s John Cena has followed the path of Dwayne Johnson and is, arguably, the second most successful wrestler turned actor in Hollywood. Cena has yet to find that role though. The Rock has picked his screenplays well and has probably had more opportunities due to his overall charisma. Cena is marketed as […]

Grotesque (1988) Horror Movie Review – FREE FILM INCLUDED

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   My husband wants me to give this flick a 10 out of 10.  He’s overreaching quite a bit, but it was certainly a film worth watching. GROTESQUE is a fun confused mess with an odd premise and an even odder implementation.  The performances seem as though they should come […]

Sinbad: Shazam Genie Movie – Film Review — The Movie That Never Existed but I Can’t Forget

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   After talking with a few of my movie-buff friends who are tearing their hair out and feeling insane while remembering the controversial film SHAZAM, I decided I’d put myself 100% out there.  Somehow this film disappeared off the face of the earth so knowing I’ll be called a nut, I’ve […]

Elf (2003) – Christmas Movie Review – Available on Amazon

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I’m a softy during Christmas.  I fully admit it.  It’s the one time a year that I genuinely try to forgive everyone and find the best qualities in people who don’t always like to exhibit good behavior.  I don’t know why Christmas is so important to me, but it’s […]

Trolls (2016) DreamWorks Family Film Review

By Melissa Antoinette Garza I didn’t expect to like the movie TROLLS (2016).  I knew very little about it.  I didn’t even know who released it. If my niece didn’t ask me to go see it, I probably would’ve never watched the film.  That said, I’m glad she wanted to go. The animated movie begins […]
