McDonald's fast food restaurants are ubiquitous around the world. You can find them just about anywhere, but how did a one-store burger stand in California become such a global phenomenon? The new movie The Founder aims to show us, warts and all.
For Valentine’s Day, instead of flowers (they don’t last) or candy (too fattening and bad for your teeth), consider giving that special someone something you can enjoy together on more than one occasion. Movies, especially good ones, are the kind of gift that keeps on giving. Below are suggestions of new Blu-ray and DVD releases available in time for Valentine’s Day.
You must wonder what studio executives think when they come up with movie advertising tag lines. Some are genius, like "In Space No One Can Hear You Scream," but others can be duds and unfortunately prophetic for how the film will be received. Case in point, The Bye Bye Man which urges not only the characters in the film, but the people looking at the ads to "Don't say it, don't think it." In this case, it's best to heed that warning.
In midst of Baltimore’s 2016 July Pride, the Creative Alliance’s Rainbow Fest - the annual LGBT film festival- first screened the independent film Akron for Maryland audiences. To their delight, audiences are able to enjoy the film in the comfort of their own home as Akron is released on DVD and Video on Demand (VOD) on February 7th, 2017.
Top Ten lists are always subjective. No one can ever agree on what the best movies of the year are and this list will surely be no different. It’s also hard to choose just ten movies to be considered the “best” when comparing a drama to a comedy is like apples and oranges – they’re different genres that give the viewer completely different experiences (and comedies especially are hard to agree on since different people find different things funny). Add sci-fi and superhero movies to the mix, and picking ten “best” movies becomes even more difficult. Mainstream critics usually consider “prestige” or how “important” a movie is (in their opinion) when selecting it as a “best” movie of the year. Not here! This Top Ten list consists of movies that made me laugh, made me cry, or just elicited some type of emotional response regardless of its chances of winning any awards – and most of the movies on this list stand no chance of winning anything. But they are popular movies, or movies that should have been hits and got overlooked, and some are pure popcorn movies. With that in mind, these are the top movies of 2016 that I enjoyed and I hope you’ll consider if you didn’t see them.
