The Best Films Of 2015

In the tradition of end-of-year rankings, here are my favorite movies over the past 12 months.

Recap: Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, The ‘Warriosity’ Edition

When WEtv’s “Marriage Boot Camp” ended last week, Benzino had packed and was going to leave the mansion. Why was he leaving?

I just don’t know what to think of this season’s “Marriage Boot Camp” on WEtv. Has there ever been a reality star cast member sleeping on the couch, locked out of his bedroom, on the first night? Sucks to be Benzino. That’s gotta be embarrassing. Director Jim Carroll sends Security along when Benzino finally gets

No Escape Blu-ray Review

Thanks to a fast pace and a gritty film style, No Escape manages to hook the audience in the opening moments and keep them on the edge of their seats. Owen Wilson and Lake Bell deliver intense performances as parents pushed to the edge to keep their children alive in a world gone insane. Directed

Neil Peart, beloved drummer of prog-rock gods Rush has announced his retirement from music, stating “There comes a time to… take yourself out of the game.” After almost twenty records with the band, chronic tendonitis and busy touring schedule, it seems more than reasonable that Peart wants to take the time away from music to
