About Us

The Big Movie was started in April 2016 by it's main writer Jimmy P.  The site started out as a home for film reviews and blu-ray/dvd special features reviews. While the film reviews stayed the same, the blu-ray/dvd special features reviews ballooned into full-on reviews (film, picture quality, etc.). Since then, we have been able to bring at least two reviews a week, with some weeks bringing more. We have run a Jaws week, a Psycho Week, and a Phantasm Week with more planned for the coming months.

We here at The Big Movie House want to thank you for stopping by and we hope to see you again.


Thank you,

Jimmy P

Mel Gibson and the N-word (archival editorial)

Note: This appeared on another blog that I wrote for. Again, everything is kept in it's original form. No editing has been done

As you may have heard, Mel Gibson supposedly threatened his ex-girlfriend by telling her that he hoped that she was raped by a bunch of "n-words". I use the term "n-word" because I am white and us whites are not allowed to say it. Not that I would want to anyway. I am just making it clear to some of the people who might not get what an "n-word" is. Anyway, so Gibson supposedly said this and other disparaging remarks to his ex-girlfriend. The reasons I bring this up are many, but I will only highlight a few.

An Explanation of My Ratings System

Back when I was a kid I got into watching Siskel & Ebert with my dad every Saturday night. 90% of the movie that they would review I was,  either too young to appreciate them or had no interest in seeing them. I still watched every Saturday, though, because it was something me and my dad did together.

Rated PG-13 (mature thematic material involving disturbing violent content and images, and some                            language)

These were the lovely bones that had grown around my absence. The connections, sometimes tenuous, sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent., that happened after I was gone. And I began to see things in a way that let me hold the world without me in it.
Having walked out of the theater after viewing The Lovely Bones , I asked myself if it was a good film. I liked what I saw, but I was having doubts. Here we have a film that has gotten a lot press about what did and did not make it into the film. That press had gotten to me and I had to sit and ponder the film, for…

Roger Ebert and The Lovely Bones

I know this has almost nothing to do with horror or cult movies, but it is something that has been weighing on my mind for some time and I fell that it needs to be said.

Roger Ebert, a week ago, posted his review for "The Lovely Bones" and I couldn't disagree more. It's not the fact that Ebert didn't like the movie, but why he didn't like the movie that pisses me off. I have no problem with people liking or not liking a movie. Hey, everyone has their own opinion. But when someone dislikes a movie they need to give reason and back it up with fact. Ebert's review of "The Lovely Bones" does not do this.

I want to say, before I go off on a tangent, that I respect Ebert's opinion. I grew up reading his reviews, and while we don't agree on everything, I always thought that he gave pretty good reasons for liking or not liking a movie. I have learned a lot about movies from reading Ebert, but I think the time has come for him to hang up his thum…

Halloween (1978) vs Halloween (2007)

Remakes are generally inferior to the original. We have seen this time and time again. A movie that is considered a classic goes to be remade, only to be hated by a majority of fans. The remake of Friday the 13th (2009) is a prime example of this and to many, Rob Zombie's remake of the John Carpenter classic, Halloween, is too. I happen to be a fan of both so I thought that I would take a look at the movies and give you my thoughts.

I want to get this out of the way before I proceed: I am all for remakes. I like to see how other filmmakers see material. There have been a lot of remakes that have worked for me, even ones outside of the horror genre, The Departed being a prime example. So I always go into a remake with an open mind and the thought that even if the remake is bad, it will not be able to touch the original. That being said let's move into the two versions of Halloween.
