Halloween Horror Fest: Adventures in B-Movies Part 1

Since cutting the cable cord and picking up a Roku, I’ve stumbled upon a great free film option.

One of the streaming channels available to Roku owners is B-Movie TV. Every two hours, the channel plays a low budget B-movie, usually from the 80s or 90s. The channel plays a different genre every day, ranging from martial arts to horror.

2019 Summer Movie Awards

The 2019 summer has come to an end and it included the finale of both the “Avengers” series and the “X-Men” franchise, with one being far more successful than the other. Along with the action movies, there were a few indie gems out there that made the past few months really good.

Since some of these flicks might get overlooked during award season, they’re going to get some recognition in my award ceremony.

LAMB Special: Large Association of Movie Blogs Movie of the Month, Stagecoach

“The Grapes of Wrath” is probably the main reason John Ford is one of my favorite directors of all time. But it’s his extended filmography, including 1939’s “Stagecoach” that cements the legacy.

Recently, the 1939 black and white classic just so happened to win the Large Association of Movie Blogs’ Movie of the Month event for August. As a fan, I’m more than happy to talk about it.

LAMB Special: Large Association of Movie Blogs July Movies of the Month

So each month, the Large Association of Movie Blogs does a poll to select a “Movie of the Month” for members to take a look at. For the month of July, there are two movies in the polling currently that I wanted to write about. They include “Drop Dead Gorgeous” and “Chronicle.”

For reference, here are the films in the July poll:

Evaluating the Avengers roster post ‘Endgame’ SPOILERS

Here we are. “Avengers: Endgame” is out and it’s truly the end of an era. It’s the same in real life, with many actor contracts reaching their end. As a result, new characters have been introduced recently, as the Marvel universe is scheduled to continue.

With that in mind, here’s my guess on who will make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward. Also, this is only covering film. While the MCU films and TV shows have had connections, they usually seem pretty loose.

Marvel Memories: Avengers Blog 2

The Fight of the Century and one of the most anticipated sequels of that time period came out during the same weekend in 2015. Unfortunately, neither lived up to the hype.

Despite that outcome, though, it was a remarkable weekend I look back fondly on. For me it marked a sign of a comeback.

Tony Stark: A character arc for the ages

Outside of Rocky Balboa and Anakin Skywalker from “Star Wars,” few characters have had as much screentime to grow and change as Tony Stark.

Of course there’s the obvious point of how Stark, played throughout the series by Robert Downey Jr., went from being a smart but rather selfish businessman to being a person who helps protect the world. however, the journey the character takes and the lessons learned are very layered and interesting to look at.

Oscar Docs: A Look at the Nominees

Another award season has come and gone, with several movies now nominated for the biggest honor in Hollywood. Five of those movies are documentary features and this year, I managed to see all of the nominees.

With my major disappointment that “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” (sort of) behind me, here’s my take on the documentaries nominated for an Oscar.
