In honour of its 50th anniversary this year I’m taking a look at this Disney classic.  That I think represents the pinnacle of work at the studio for that era.

Let’s Review a Movie: Star Trek Into Darkness or Star Trek XII: Boldly Going Nowhere (2013)



All right after several months it’s time to take a better look at the most recent release from the franchise that kicked off this blog.  And oh boy is there a lot to discuss.  As I’ve said before all my early thought opinions are subject to change and this is such an occasion.  In my first thoughts review I originally said that this film was better than the 2009 film and I have changed my mind.  This outing is not better than the last movie this is worse, so much worse.

Let’s Review a Movie: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)



All right I’m looking at two classics in a row.  This is a different genre than the last film, but still definitely a classic of the action adventure films.

Let's Review a Movie: The Magnificent Seven (1960)



Well this is slightly belated, but in honour of what would have been Deforest Kelley’s 94th birthday this past Monday I’m looking at a Western.  And unlike last year when I reviewed a remake of a classic Western this time I’m reviewing a true classic…that is a remake of another classic.
