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 […]


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 […]

Beauty and the Beast (2017) – A Conservative’s Film Review

By Melissa Antoinette Garza  I haven’t seen the Disney cartoon adaptation in quite a while, but since some of my favorite people in the world were going to see the new film, I decided to go with.  I knew there was some hubbub about the inclusion of a gay character, so I was curious about […]


Sinister 2 (2015) Horror Film Review-REDBOX RENTAL – AMAZON PURCHASE

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I wanted to see SINISTER 2 (2015) for quite a while.  Unfortunately, neither my brother Geno nor my husband Steve were fans of the original.   Since I watch so many horror movies with them, I try to watch films of a different genre when I’m alone. They just put it […]

DON’T BREATHE (2016) – Horror Movie Review (SPOILERS)

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I remember seeing the trailer for DON’T BREATHE (2016) in the theater with my husband.  Steve and I couldn’t stop laughing.  With the gruff voice of the blind villain grumbling “Now, you’ll see what I see!” was beyond too much. The film received moderately positive reviews, but I had zero […]
