Battlecreek (2017) – New Drama Available on Amazon Prime

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Damn, it’s been awhile since I’ve written any reviews.   Life has gotten in the way of many hobbies, but now that I have done a few home renovations, readied myself to gardening and started a new candle-making operation, I’m feeling a bit artistic again, so thus – movie reviews are […]


AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING (2017) – horror movie review

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING (2017) was filmed a few years back and has been repeatedly shelved since.  Cursed with delays and reshoots that spanned nearly 5 years, the lore behind the film was far more interesting than the production itself. When it was finally released last month, I couldn’t wait to […]


Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (1988)

Reviewed by Melissa Antoinette Garza “There‘s nothing wrong with G rated movies as long as there‘s lots of sex and violence.” – Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) When I was in elementary school, some girls idolized She-Ra, some lived for Rainbow Brite. The young intellectuals of the bunch may have even thrown Nancy Reagan‘s name around as […]


Cult of Chucky (2017) – NETFLIX FREE WATCH

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   First, my apologies for the delay in reviews.  Unplanned emergencies and a death in the family When it comes to the CHILD’S PLAY (1987) franchise.  I’m an easy sell.  I loved the first six films, and I was pumped for the seventh.  Don Mancini, the same writer who created […]


The Circle (2017) – Thriller Movie Review – HOLLYWOOD LIBERALS EDIT FILM?

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I typically adore suspense flicks about conspiracies.  CAPRICORN ONE (1977), THE V (1984), THEY LIVE (1988), ANTITRUST (2001), THE CONSPIRACY (2012), THE FIRM (1993) and THE SKULLS (2000) are all movies I suggest quite often (some more than others).  Still, all of those mentioned told an entertaining and solid […]



By Melissa Antoinette Garza I only recently heard about INCONCEIVABLE (2017).  It’s in select theaters currently, but I streamed if off Amazon for $6.99.  As the cast includes Nicolas Cage, Gina Gershon and Faye Dunaway, it was obvious that the acting would be topnotch and entertaining. The hubby told me that most compared it to […]


Ever After: A Cinderella Story (1998) on Amazon and VUDU

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Certain movies, I enjoy not just for the quality of the film, but also because of what the film invokes in my own memory.  EVER AFTER: A CINDERELLA STORY, for me, will always be connected strongly to my sister-n-law Dani. For starters, I believe I saw it in the […]


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 […]

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 […]



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 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. […]
