Directed by: Roland Emmerich Written by: Wes Tooke Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 has inspired many films over the years, most of which center around fictional characters and cheesy love stories. The 1976 Midway is no exception so it was with guarded anticipation I awaited the release of Roland Emmerich's Midway. …

JUNE Viewing Recap: INDIAN SUMMERS, Netflix’s Murder Mystery, Unlocked, etc.

I can't believe it's July already... I feel like once July 4th is behind us, we're already more than halfway done with Summer 😦 Well, I actually didn't really do much movie/tv watching around the Fourth weekend as I prefer to make the most of Minnesota Summer outside.

FlixChatter Review: The Girl on the Train (2016)

When this project was first announced, I was hoping I'd finish the book by the time the film comes out.
