Eloquently understated and poignant...I'll See You In My Dreams.There are no grandiose overtures to lure the audience in, but as soon as the film starts rolling, the trance begins. The plot is incidental; the story profound.At a time when our elders are undervalued, and not fully respected as individuals, writer/director Brett Haley (The New Year; ... Read More

It was three years in the making but Pitch Perfect 2 is finally hitting theaters.  As is typical with sequels, it can't compare to its predecessor but as a whole it holds its own.  I really like the first Pitch Perfect so it had "lofty shoes to fill" and while it doesn't quite get there it was actually better than I expected it ...

From the trailers I decided I wanted to see Age of Adaline.   It looked mildly interesting, starred actors I typically liked, and wasn't the same old action adventure, sci-fi or romantic comedy so prevalent in movie theaters today.  Unfortunately, I left the theater with a sense of disappointment as Age of Adaline was predictable, un...

If grey is too gloomy for you, try 50 (or 100) Shades of Blush.  I did! But, before we get to those hot and glistening details...What you need to know about Nicholas Sparks' latest novel turned Hollywood blockbust... er... uh... hopeful...There are some acting gems in this film.  Disclosure: I became a lifelong Alan Alda fan upon meet...

Furious 7 is everything you would expect from the Fast and Furious franchise and so much more.  Once again "the family" needs to pull together to fight against others who want to harm them.  Interestingly, this time there are two menaces instead of one and a "world domination" pseudo plot is woven into the mix. In...

The Boov are coming, The Boov are coming!!!  What exactly are "Boov", you ask?  They are the cute, colorful alien creatures at the center of Dreamworks' new theatrical release Home.   Out in theaters on March 27, 2015, this animated film is an hour and a half of typical family entertainment. The Boov are a society...

Cinderella…We have all seen it in some form or another.  The story has been told time and again. Of course, arguably the best version is the Disney animated classic.  Now Disney is trying to outdo itself with a live action movie out in theaters today.This latest attempt is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor) and stars Lily James (Do...
