Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, stockholm syndrome. In the past seven or so years, Disney has set out on a conquest to take their most popular animated films and convert them into live action. While continuing with this quest, Disney has had some major hits (2015’s “Cinderella,” an...

Okay, so before I start this review, I’d just like to make a shout out to the man who decided to recline all the way back in his chair so that my knees were crushed down. You sir, are the worst type of human being. Hello, I’m the Movie Buff, and this month, I will be reviewing the best movie t...

In a month full of all kinds of new, unnecessary horror sequels (looking at you “Ouija 2”), one film stands high above the rest. No, not a new-age horror flick just in time for Halloween, but instead, the 1988 cult classic horror-comedy: “Beetlejuice.” Directed by the legendary Tim Burton...

I am the Movie Buff and now that the Most Disappointing Summer in Movies has come to an end, it is a nice and refreshing feeling to return to movies that not only aren’t a giant disappointment, but are actually worth your money. Well, the first movie from that category is t...

It’s May, so the summer movie season has officially kicked off, and let me tell you, thank God for that! Rather than spending your time at the beach or hanging out in the sunshine, you can sit down in your seat with your overpriced buttered popcorn and soda, and enjoy stuffing it into your face whi...

Hello everybody, I am the Movie Buff and this month. Due to the lack of movies coming out and my inability to get interested in any of them, and because it was at the theater for one day, I will be reviewing one of my all time favorite fantasy films: Labyrinth. Labyrinth is a film created by Jim Henson a...

Following not far behind 2013’s cash-grab musical hit that was “Frozen,” comes a delightful tale about talking animals in a civilized society. Of course, by a delightful tale I mean a dark animated film about racism, sexism, and prejudice all set to a colorful background of talking animals. Sounds lik...

It’s Oscar Time everyone! The best time of the year for all of the old white guys that make up the academy to vote on movies that pretty much nobody has ever heard or cared about until they are announced to be nominated for an award. One day, I got a pop up on my Twitter feed (the one time I’ve...

A short time ago in a movie theater not very far away… *insert Star Wars opening music* Happy New Year everyone! This is The Movie Buff and I have a review for you. Now, this movie came out almost a month ago, but it is about time that I can talk about it a little more in depth as ¾ of the planet...

The name is Buff, The Movie Buff, and I went to see the newest installment in the only film franchise that has more movies than the “Land Before Time” and more conveniently placed couches than “The Pit” at Bob’s Discount Furniture, the James Bond franchise. This is the series where everything...

Wow, all I can say is, it’s official: the movie industry has spent an unusual amount of money trying to rescue Matt Damon. Saving Private Ryan, Interstellar, now The Martian. But hey, if he keeps bringing us great movies, I say keep it going! As you can more than likely tell, I went to see “The Martian,...
