The Bad News Bears (1976) Movie Review

Much like Cape Fear, Bad News Bears is a film that’s embedded into American pop culture.  Whether it be through its 2005 remake or that episode of South Park called “The Losing Edge” which also involved little league baseball, or the fact that the overall plot of the Bad News Bears is like a cheeseburger variation.   1,086 more words

A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

(*1/2 out of ****)

(Originally written for The Boston College Heights on 5/3/2009)

One, two, a new remake’s coming for you … three, four, this one is quite the bore … five, six, you won’t find any new tricks … seven, eight, you could call it second-rate … nine, ten, never trust anything Michael Bay touches again. 742 more words
