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 […]



By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Tonight, my husband and I were supposed to go see RIFFTRAX Shorts as one of their Fathom events were being aired live in some theaters.  The cinema we typically go to wasn’t showing it so we had to make an adjustment.  We went to see IT COMES AT NIGHT (2017) […]


The Incredible Hulk: The Psychic (1980) – Marvel SUPERHERO TV SHOW REVIEW

By Geno McGahee I like psychics, except for those fake ones. I know that some of you think all psychics are fake, but Uri Geller was the real deal. I know that the so-called Amazing Randi tried to debunk him, but I’ve got it from a reliable source that Geller shoved a spoon up his […]

The Principal (1987) – Movie Review – on Amazon

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   THE PRINCIPAL (1987) is another comfort film or me.  For years, I thought it was a quality rip-off of LEAN ON ME, but shockingly the latter came out two years after.  THE PRINCIPAL is more of an action than a drama. The lead character Rick Latimer (Jim Belushi) wields […]


Lean on Me (1989) – Movie Review (on Amazon)

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   LEAN ON ME (1989) is like comfort food for me.  If I’m upset, down, suffering from insomnia or just in need of a feel-good film, Principal Joe Clark (Morgan Freeman) always puts a smile on my face. As there may be some too young to remember this classic, go […]


The Incredible Hulk: The Lottery (1980) – Marvel SUPERHERO TV SHOW REVIEW

By Geno McGahee For the first time, that I can remember at least, David Banner (Bill Bixby) is offered a drink. Initially, he declines, but then, he surprisingly has a few glasses of wine. I would think that being the Hulk would making drinking alcohol too risky. Get drunk, fuck shit up…you know the score. […]



By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Congratulations DON’T BREATHE (2016), you are no longer the movie that pisses me off the most.  That honor goes to a 1984 award-winning TV movie starring Ted Danson and Glenn Close.  It’s a film called SOMETHING ABOUT AMELIA and it’s a fictionalized account about a father molesting his daughter. Full […]


The Incredible Hulk: Falling Angels (1980) – Marvel SUPERHERO TV SHOW REVIEW

By Geno McGahee It’s sad that David Banner (Bill Bixby) can’t have kids. He is so helpful and loves children, but he is so afraid of Hulking up during sex that he will not risk it. That is a testament to his love of humanity that he will not risk the life of a woman […]


The Hand that Rocks the Cradle (1992) POSSIBLE MANDELA EFFECT – Movie Review

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   As a child, I loved the movie THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE (1992).  I still love movies of this genre.  SINGLE WHITE FEMALE (1992), OBSESSED (2009), THE BOY NEXT DOOR (2015), PLAY MISTY FOR ME (1971) are just a few of the films that I own and love. […]


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 Eternal Jew (1940) – A Nazi Propaganda Film (Subtitled)

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Other than seeing clips of TRIUMPH OF THE WILL (1934) in documentaries, I never watched a Nazi propaganda film.  I knew Nazis were horrible, I knew Hitler was the devil incarnate and I knew about the horrors of the Holocaust.  So, I never saw a reason to watch a […]

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 […]
