Blazing Saddles

With the recent loss of Gene Wilder, we have been doing a lot of reminiscing about the comedies of yesteryear, and the one that always rises to the top is Blazing Saddles. The interesting thing about this Mel Brooks classic is that -by far- it is not politically correct and yet it is still a […]

As of the publishing of this article, 854,312 people have “disliked” the first trailer for the new Ghostbusters reboot.

What does Star Wars, Jurassic Park, and the Avengers have in common… besides Samuel L. Jackson? Each franchise has had one movie score over $200,000 in box office sales during their opening weekends.

You should not go see Pixels. There is not much else to say, but in an effort to not make this the shortest movie review we have ever written here at The NYRD we will endeavor to continue. After all, it could not be any less painful than seeing the actual movie. Gala-Go Away This movie […]
