The loss of Prince, a true innovator and trail blazer

In the 1980s, there were three major singers that helped shape the musical landscape during that decade.  Not only did they help define the musical DNA of that decade, but their contributions are still felt in this day and age.   Those three singers, that I like to think of as the Triad of 80s music,...

  Night of the Living Dead is a small movie that caused a giant stir within the horror movie community and helped shape the currently popular zombie genre.  On the surface, it looks to be just a simple zombie movie filled with gore, but if you dig deeper, it actually is a symbolic sociological study...

The Goonies is still awesome, just like it was back in 1985

It’s hard to believe that ‘The Goonies’ was released thirty years ago.  In fact, I remember watching this at the theater when I was little.  To a five/six year old, this movie had everything a child could want including a treasure hunt, pirates, escaped convicts, great music, and lots of adventures involving a close knit...

Nightmare on Elm Street 2, a horror movie about repression and how it manifests

Friday is here again, which means time for another flashback trip to the 80s.. one of my favorite decades.  Today I decided to write about a movie that came out about 30 years ago entitled ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street 2’.  Often derided as the evil step-child of the film franchise, I have to say...
