"Incredible"..."Triumphant"..."Out Of This World".... A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away, as movie goers lined up to witness the spectacle of "some new sci-fi flick", these exclamations could be overheard as those now initiated emerged wide-eyed from the theater.A relatively unknown director in an unch...

Warner Bros. is turning out to be what I would consider one of the smartest studios around.  Not only did they work with J.K. Rowling to provide one of the world's most popular movie franchises to people of all ages, but they have made the best business decision to bring the Harry Potter movies to 4K UHD.  Harry Potter and The De...

Warner Bros. has been amazing moviegoers over the last few years with their movie content, storylines, and choice of cast.  In the last year, they have also shown incredible foresight into bringing some of their prior blockbuster releases into the new digital technology.  The Harry Potter franchise has enthralled kids and adults...

"Kind of disjointed," whispered one correspondent. "Distracting…," murmured another.  Yet, they all boisterously agreed loudly that they found themselves laughing...increasingly.  "It was very funny," many, if not all, declared.  Wherever the disconnect might be, this film is truly funny, inventiv...

For all the Harry Potter fans out there, J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. has rewarded us with a "prequel" to the beloved magical series (rumored to be the first of possibly five- yes, five!) that creates its own story without losing the Harry Potter vibe that is central to the stories.  Magic,&nb...

J.K Rowling wrote seven books in the Harry Potter series but the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was so large and full of details that it was broken into two movies.  I'm sure Warner Bros. also saw it as a chance to prolong the inevitable end of the series and an opportunity to make more money.  In all...

It is hard to believe that it has been almost 20 years since the first book in the Harry Potter series was published and 16 years since the first film was released.  Both the books and the movies garnered boundless success and have now spawned a second generation of fans.  As newer technology advances the audience'...

When I heard about 20th Century Women, I was intrigued.  People said it was funny and it got very strong reviews.  It had a great cast, so I added it to my "must watch" list but took my time to see it.  Now that it is coming to Blu-ray, it's time to revisit the film and write down my thoughts.  Inter...

In 1958, illustrator Peyo (Pierre Culliford), brought The Smurfs comics to Belgium.  It's popularity quickly spread throughout Europe and eventually became an animated show on American Television.  I can remember Saturday mornings in the 1980's in front of the television watching those little blue creature...

When I was a little girl, I loved cheesy television shows.  The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, and CHiPs were among some of my favorites.  Granted, they weren't great television by today's standards but when you are young you don't really worry about those things. It was fun television that entertained and ther... Read More
