Unbelievably, one of my favorite childhood films turned 40 this year. I grew up watching The Blues Brothers and it’s remained one of my favorite comfort movies to watch (the kind that I’ve seen so many times I can quote most of it). Not too long ago I rewatched the film for the first time […]My Thoughts on: The Blues Brothers (1980)
The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942)
Continuing the Frankenstein marathon, I promptly moved on to the fourth film in the series, The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942), a decent enough film, though it’s more than obvious that the story is starting to go off the rails just slightly. This is not only the first Frankenstein film without Boris Karloff involved in any […]My Thoughts on: The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942)

True Detective – Season 1 (2014)
The thing about True Detective is that it doesn’t just explore the darkness of serial killers. It explores the darkness of every character in the show. And though season 3 of the anthology was solid, season 1 is the best. It’s not even close. These warped, twisted, stunning eight episodes changed my opinion on Matthew […]True Detective – Season 1 (2014)

All places of comfort – a mother’s […]Reely Bernie Horror Fest: The Babadook – 2014

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) ★★★★ / ★★★★ Remove the gruesome, in-your-face murders and mutilations and notice that “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” remains to be a thoroughly effective horror film. Inferior slasher films forget that violence does not define horror even though it is or can be a part of it. Director Tobe […]The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

You’ve Laughed at ‘Borat,’ Now Watch These Five Films from Kazakhstan
Sacha Baron Cohen’s outrageous 2006 comedy “Borat,” about a fictional Kazakhstani reporter traveling through United States, put the Central Asian nation in the consciousness of most Americans for the first time. Back then, Kazakhstan’s government had an understandable reaction to the comedian’s crude and stereotypical portrayal of the ex-Soviet republic. Now, 16 years later, with…You’ve Laughed at ‘Borat,’ Now Watch These Five Films from Kazakhstan
