“A heavy-metal drummer’s life is thrown into freefall when he begins to lose his hearing.”
In recent years, my reviewing habits have slowed down more than I would’ve liked, since entering the workforce it’s been hard to watch, think and write about films whilst also balancing work and personal lives. I’ve started to pick it up again in the last few months and the reason for this was The Lighthouse, because when I walked out of that first viewing I knew I wanted to write down my thoughts on this film and explain in great detail why it’s a goddamn modern masterpiece of isolationist horror.
Which given our current climate, this film hits a little closer to home now than I realized.

To begin, I’m a casual Star Wars fan. I enjoy them enough to say that I have fun just going along for the ride with the characters. I can’t say that I know all the minor characters and can name all the different ships and the droids. I don’t watch the cartoons or read the Extended Universe books. I will say though that The Mandalorian is doing a nice job at being a fun Western story that just happens to take place in the Star Wars universe. Star Wars is just a thing to me that exists that I have no ownership to and that doesn’t owe it to me to give me what I want. But in this day and age, the internet has allowed people to complain about many things, including movies. We can’t even go through watching sci-fi action movies made for the family without causing controversy these days. The Last Jedi wasn’t amazing to me, but it was a movie that made some interesting choices. I liked what it was doing with the universe and director Rian Johnson gave the franchise a chance to go in a new direction. But, no one can be happy with what they have and Disney decided to bring back J.J. Abrams to direct the last movie of the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Let’s see if this movie was willing to continue on the path that TLJ laid out or they were going to backtrack and attempt to correct what never needed correcting. Spoiler alert: they end up doing the latter. Continue reading
On this episode of the Cinephellas Podcast, Henry Hill interviews the director and star of Mob Town, Danny Abeckaser. Danny was gracious enough to share his insight on making the film as well as talking about how he landed a role in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman. Mob Town tells the true story of the 1957 meeting of over a hundred mafia members in the small town of Apalachin in upstate New York. A state trooper played by David Arquette uncovers the meeting and helps coordinate a raid on it. Henry was able to watch a screener of the film, and while not on the level of a lot of other mob films, he found the film both entertaining and informational.
Saban Films released the thriller Mob Town in theaters, VOD, and Digital HD on December 13th, 2019!
