‘The Outsider’ annoyingly good to watch

By Chic DiCiccio There are slow burns and then there is HBO’s “The Outsider,” a 10-part miniseries that manages to be simultaneously compelling and frustrating. The first three one-hour long episodes have all aired and we are nowhere near learning who viciously murdered a young boy named Frank Peterson. This murder mystery piles on elements […]

‘Bad Boys for Life’ deserves a quick death

‘Bad Boys for Life’ deserves a quick death

By Chic DiCiccio “Bad Boys for Life” may be the first movie ever made that makes viewers miss Michael Bay. If there is one area where Bay excels, it’s turning brain-dead scripts into entertaining (yet still brain-dead) movies. This is a guy that directed the hell out of the first two silly “Bad Boys” scripts […]

It is so captivating and unbelievable that it would be considered a masterstroke for a horror/thriller novelist to […]
