The character of Batman has been one of the most popular comic character since he emerged onto the comic book scene back in 1939.  Since then, we have seen many incarnations of Batman in print, television, and film; some comical, some dark and serious. Gotham brings a whole new dissection of his story to life.The show, which airs on Fox, premi... Read More

Disney "Prom" is a film made about -- you guessed it -- the Prom!  This squeaky-clean high school film is a breath of fresh air from the usual high-school- themed films that one sees nowadays.  Hokey?  Maybe, but it is nice to be able to bring a young girl to a movie without worrying about seeing alcohol or drug use and lot...

Disney has had a few "golden ages" of animated feature films throughout its existence. The first one was Snow White,  followed by their next golden age that started with the Little Mermaid -- then peeked at the company's best-animated feature to date, The Lion King.  It appears now with Tangled that we are on the verge of yet an...

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!  That's right, I said it three times.  Now, as I wait for Michael Keaton to appear in my living room, let me do my glowing review of this Tim Burton classic. While fixing up their New England farmhouse, Adam and Barbara head into town to pick something up at the hardware store, but while crossing ove... Read More

Ever since the show ended on HBO, I have been waiting to hear if the movie would indeed come to fruition. Some of the actresses were on board and others were not. Four years later, everyone came together, however, and created a film that picked up right where the series left off.First things first...Big and Carrie:  It was great to see that th... Read More
