    If the victim is choking on popcorn: stand behind the victim and wrap your arms around his waist. Place your fist with the thumb side against the victim's abdomen slightly above the navel and below the rib cage. Grasp your fist with your other hand and pull it into the victim's abdomen with a quick upward thrust. Repeat the movement several times if necessary.

The One Dracula Film Everyone Must See

Filed under: — Brandon Engel on March 19th, 2015 05:03:22 pm

Bram Stoker's Dracula

Every decade seems to bring in a new round of Dracula movies for each new generation. However, the best Dracula movie has to be Bram Stoker’s Dracula by celebrated director Francis Ford Coppola. It was 1992 when it first hit the main screen and instantly it became a classic and is still rerun frequently and is available to watch through platforms like iTunes. Gary Oldman had one of his best performances ever as Dracula. He gave the character so much life and passion. Dracula’s object of obsession, Mina, was played by the talented Winona Ryder. Several other prominent actors like Keanu Reeves and Anthony Hopkins as Mr. Van Helsing would make important appearances throughout the movie as well.

Why, you might ask, is this Dracula so much more special than previous versions?

Breathe In (2015)

Filed under: — Helen on March 18th, 2015 02:03:42 pm

breathe in posterBreathe In is a slow romance drama that is not for the impatient. There is very little action in the movie and even the dialogue is quite limited. Everything is revealed through looks and body gestures. It is a testament to the good cast and performances that even without much dialogue, it is always clear what the characters are thinking.

Out of the Furnace (2014)

Filed under: — Helen on February 19th, 2015 04:02:28 pm

out of the furnace film posterOut of the Furnace is a bleak film where there is no sense of hope for any of the characters. From the start, there is a sense that there will no happy ending for anyone involved. This sense of doom is brought about by the bleak Pennsylvania town setting and the fact the main characters seem unable to stay away from trouble. Despite the negative atmosphere though, the performances are compelling and give a fresh take to a familiar story.

Robots to Storm the Box Office in 2015

Filed under: — Brandon Engel on February 5th, 2015 10:02:42 pm


With a slate of upcoming films that prominently feature artificial intelligence, 2015 is shaping up to be an “Age of Robots.” There’s no question that, in many ways, modern technology has enriched our lives — from robotic surgeries minimizing medical risks in England, to improved mining equipment helping alternative energy providers to keep costs low in the United States, to the compact touch-screen interfaces that make life around the globe feel more like 2001: A Space Odyssey. This may provoke a certain elation within the futurists in our midst, but for the rest of us, we can’t help but feel concerned about the expanding role that technology plays in our lives, as it might be used by hackers to steal our information or may even

The Five Best Controversial Documentaries of Recent Years

Filed under: — Brandon Engel on December 11th, 2014 12:12:45 am



Film is an incredibly powerful medium. It informs public opinion, and helps us to preserve pieces of our history. Some of the most influential writings on the potential social utility of non-fiction filmmaking were produced by Scottish born Canadian filmmaker John Grierson, who thought of film as a means of empowering the powerless, and calling attention to social ills. Grierson’s influence is still resonant, as evidenced by this collection of films that seek to enrich public discourses through their films.


Here are the top five thought-provoking documentaries from recent years.

Black Sea (2014)

Filed under: — Helen on December 9th, 2014 06:12:25 pm

black sea film posterBlack Sea is a gripping submarine thriller that covers themes of desperation and greed. The film is held together by a strong cast providing frantic on edge performances which are enhanced by the dark and claustrophic setting of the submarine. There is a sense of tragedy as men who have dedicated their lives to their work find they are thrown to the bottom of a scrapheap,  and have to resort to desperate measures to get revenge and make a living.

What could Brian Ross Learn from Woodward and Bernstein?

Filed under: — Brandon Engel on November 14th, 2014 11:11:24 pm



Art history is perhaps one of the most comprehensive encapsulations of world history humanity has at its disposal. The role of religion in society at large, social mores, taboos, inequitable societal structures, social unrest, political scandal…it’s all been documented by artists.

What’s great about the 20th Century is that cinema has played such an enormous role in documenting this era in human history. Some of the most compelling films of all time have dealt, self-reflexively, with the role of media in modern society — films like Citizen Kane, Wag The Dog, Network — it’s an extensive list.

Christine: Carpenter and King’s Abhorrent Auto

Filed under: — Brandon Engel on October 29th, 2014 11:10:44 pm



In the history of Stephen King novels adapted to film, some have fallen short by a wide margin, some have become immensely successful, and others still become relatively obscure over time. Then there are those films like The Shining, which didn’t receive much praise upon its release, but has since gone on to be regarded as one of the greatest horror movies of all time. One of the major issues for Stephen King fans with The Shining, and indeed, for Stephen King himself, were the philosophical/spiritual incongruities between King and director Stanley Kubrick.

Demons, Aliens, Renegades, and Slashers: The Grim Imagination of John Carpenter

Filed under: — Brandon Engel on September 10th, 2014 08:09:38 pm


John Carpenter has created some of the most terrifying movie monsters in the history of cinema, but he’s also managed to make films that are moving emotionally, and he has continually defied what audiences have expected from self-aware genre films. What’s more, he could achieve all of this on a miniscule budget, with casts comprised primarily of unestablished actors. In fact, he helped to establish some performers, including Jamie Lee Curtis.

Mistaken For Strangers (2013)

Filed under: — Helen on August 3rd, 2014 04:08:15 pm

mistaken for strangers posterMistaken for Strangers was supposed to be a rock documentary about the popular band ‘The National’ as they embarked on their 2010 tour, but it turned out to be something much more original and stirring.  Filmed by Tom Bernenger, the younger brother of ‘The National’s’ lead singer Matt Berninger, as he is invited to come on tour with the band and work as a roadie for them, Mistaken for strangers is more a film about sibling rivalry and self discovery than a music documentary. It not only shows the not particularly exciting off stage antics of a rock/indie band, but it shows how brotherly love and patience can be tested by jealousy and being in close proximity to one another.
