Led by a career best performance by Richard Gere, …

A-Ron’s New Movie Reviews: “Boss Level” (2021)

In 1993, the now beloved Bill Murray comedy “Groundhog Day” set a path for future movies to use the premise of reliving the same day over and over again.  It was done to successful results in “Happy Death Day 1 & 2” and Tom Cruise’s “Edge Of Tomorrow”, who both put the “Groundhog Day” time loop gimmick to use in sending …

Movies like Warner Bros “Tom & Jerry”, is about nostalgia.

Not only does it give us older generation that nostalgic feeling, it will surely bring “Tom & Jerry” into the homes of …

A-Ron’s Film Rewind Presents: “Running Scared” (2006) – 15th Anniversary

I distinctly remember the moment I saw the poster for “Running Scared” hanging up in the lobby of my local movie theater back in 2005. My first and initial reaction was “This can’t be? Are they actually making a remake to ‘Running Scared’?”. Of course the “Running Scared” I’m referring to was the 1986 buddy cop comedy starring Billy Crystal …
