PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES | © 2017 Disney Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES Supposedly this is the last film in the franchise, the fifth film based on a freaking amusement park ride in Disneyland. Don’t get me wrong, these films have been fun from the get-go but after five of them, it has become a little long-in-the-tooth to see Captain Jack Sparrow continually get into trouble, fumble his way through problems for two hours only to have it all work out in the end. This time Sparrow must once again deal […]Read On »

Cast: Dave Sheridan, Joey Oglesby, Tim Olgetree, Sophia Taylor Ali, Danielle Garcia, Mason Dakota Galyon, Troy Olgetree Writer: Tim Ogletree Director: Scott Dow Distributor: Arc Entertainment Rating: Not Rated Movie parodies used to be something of a rarity. And then they were not based on current pop culture but on a genre of cinema. AIRPLANE was not based on a slew of shows about airplanes but rather the dramas and action flicks of the time with a unique storyline and comedic slapstick. Parodies remained a rare thing in Hollywood until the SCARY MOVIE franchise emerged and made a ton of […]Read On »

If Marco Beltrami’s ever-growing resume of work makes him one of the hardest working composers in score business, then consider Buck Sanders as the session man who’s made the prolific number of IMDB entries possible (they currently have their work on display in the recent releases A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD and WARM BODIES). After assisting Beltrami since the beginning of his career in roles ranging from synthesist to sound design, score producer and additional music writer for such stylistically diverse titles as THE MINUS MAN, I ROBOT and SOUL SURFER, Buck Sanders finally got to step into the […]Read On »

It’s been about eight years since a plague swept through the world, turning most people into flesh-eating zombies and forcing the survivors […]Read On »
