A Brief History On August 29, 2019, we went to see the second film in the 47 Meters Down movie franchise, this time titled 47 Meters Down: Uncaged.  This new film, which debuted across the country August 16, 2019, is not a sequel to the first film, and only has in common the idea of people underwater with dangerous sharks.  And pulse pounding terror. As great fans of horror and terror movies, and the fact that we previously had seen and enjoyed the first film, we were pretty eager to see this latest installment in underwater terror.  We were not…

A Brief History In 1993, when Cox began offering telecommunication services to businesses, the company became the first multiple system cable operator to do so.  In the society that we live in currently, there are three major things that most of us cannot survive without… a phone for communication, a TV set, and the internet; however, these things are all like owning a car… they all add to your daily/monthly expenditure. Needless to mention, they also come with a ton of advantages and disadvantages, just like everything else in this life. Most of all, did you know that there are…

A Brief History On August 23, 2019, the third in the movie series starring Gerard Butler as the super duper Secret Service agent Mike Banning, is set to make its debut across the US in the wrappings of Angel Has Fallen.  The previous films, Olympus Has Fallen (2013) and London Has Fallen (2016) were financially successful films, making more than double and more than triple their budgets respectively, meaning it was only good business sense for the producers to add another film to the series. Digging Deeper The film series features Butler as a fiercely loyal and dedicated public servant,…

A Brief History On August 21, 2019, the country will be treated to a great “The Most Dangerous Game” (short story, 1924, film, 1932)) themed horror movie when Ready or Not hits the public.  If you are not familiar with “The Most Dangerous Game,” you are probably at least familiar with the theme of man hunting man.  In the new horror film, Ready or Not, the twist is that a woman is being hunted. Digging Deeper If you liked movies such as Surviving the Game (1994) and Hard Target (1993), Run for the Sun (1956), let alone the several other…

A Brief History On August 13, 2019, we went and saw the latest horror movie from Hollywood, the movie version of Alvin Schwartz’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.  Perhaps you read the books back in the day (the 3 books spanned the time from 1981 to 1991), as we did.  Aimed at the preteen and teen-aged audience, even as an adult I found the stories interesting enough to read and finish the books.  It was with this fond memory that we went to the movies this morning. Digging Deeper We enjoyed the movie.  While not a pure anthology…
