Forgotten Friday Flick - 'A Bronx Tale'
To counteract the bad acting juju of "Pixels" Adam Sandler and cleanse the performance palate the selection this week features top notch work from all involved – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick!

It’s definitely one of the great ones – it’s…"A Bronx Tale!"

'Sharknado 3' Review: 'Sharknado' Has Officially Jumped The Shark

7/23/2015 6:27am EDT
Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No
For a critic, reviewing a Sharknado movie is a dream come true. Today, life says to you that fateful morning, you will watch the movie where a tornado full of sharks threatens to engulf the entire East Coast. Life has led you to this moment. Enjoy it.

I tried, life. I really did. But as much as it pains me to say it, I couldn't bring myself to enjoy Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!. It's awful. And not the giggly, inspired kind of awful you'd expect from a movie where tornado-propelled sharks eat Jerry Springer. The kind of awful that catches you yawning and checking your watch in the middle of a ...

It seems he's not a lock just yet- The Wrap reports that del Toro has been offered a major role in the sequel, but he's yet to officially say "yes." Still, it's Star Wars- who'd really say no?
