Top 5 Movie Franchises of All Time

Money. Money is awesome and it makes the world go ’round. Movies. Movies are also awesome. They don’t make the world turn, but they’re damn fun to watch. Well, most of them anyway (that’s a post for another day). In any case, wouldn’t it be fun if we looked at the biggest movie franchises of all time? So for background, let’s say that we’ll be looking at the highest grossing franchises with...

Why KTown Needed a Voice and How We Found It

For the last few years, Koreatown, Los Angeles has been worming its way into popular, mainstream culture.

Best Movies of 2014

Well, late last night, Danny sends me the email that we’ve all been waiting for. The teaser for Ktown Cowboys is...

A Look Back at the Original Planet of the Apes Series

Since we’re getting a new Planet of the Apes film this month I thought it was a good time to revisit one of my favorite sci-fi series of all time. The original movies may seem a bit quaint to modern audiences used to expensive CGI spectacle, but there was a time when the Apes movies were a real phenomenon. Between 1968 and 1973, five movies were produced. Apes were everywhere. They were on lunchboxes and bed sheets. Kids bought the...
