In 1981 publishing company Houghton Mifflin published a fantasy children's picture book by Chris Van Allsburg called Jumanji.  The book depicted jungle animals and elements coming to life as the game is played.  Then in 1995, Tristar Pictures made Jumanji into a feature film starring Robin Williams (Mrs. Doubtfire).  A second boo...

When does a film stop being entertainment and start becoming political manipulation? That's the question running around in my head after seeing Clint Eastwood's new film Richard Jewell. There's no doubt that Mr. Eastwood is a skilled Director. There is a vast library of fine films to prove it. However, this film feels quickly made, rushed to market... Read More

When It: Chapter One hit the theaters back in 2017, New Line Cinema knew it had a hit on its hands, but not one that would go on to be the highest-grossing horror film to-date. Now, in 2019, the back part of the book finally makes its way to the masses with It: Chapter Two.It: Chapter Two takes place 27 years after the timeline of the fir... Read More

The late 1980's/early 1990s were all about decadence, impulsivity and indulgence in this country and New York City was probably at the center of it all.  Investment brokers were making a lot of money and showing it off with expensive cars, beautiful homes, and lavish gifts.  They also enjoyed their money and would often blow off...

It's just a simple, harmless childhood game, right?  Everyone grows up playing hide and seek.  However, when it becomes a real scenario of life and death, it's no longer a game.  That is the concept behind directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillet (Devil's Due) horror/thriller, Ready or Not.   The scre...

Why do human beings seem so fascinated by the sky and the stars?  Long before the Wright Brothers took to the air in the early 1900s, Other experiments with flight in the form of hot air balloons.  Many were experimenters or thrill-seekers but a few were scientists working to advance our understanding of what lays above us.  One such...

(Leonard Buccellato)  12/4/2019 11:20 AM EST
For a show that has won 260 awards, 59 of which were Emmys, and countless accolades and praise, it has received more than its fair share of slings and arrows, too. Most of which came during this last season.Game of Thrones was the darling of its fan base, not to mention most of the critics, as well. That is, until the rushed and much-maligned Seaso...

Why is it that the powers that be in Hollywood think that almost every novel should be turned into a major motion picture?  Sometimes the outcome is worthy of the original work but more often than not the results are less than stellar. Part of the problem is that novels usually have so many details that movies would need to be several hou... Read More

In 2012 Little, Brown and Company published a novel by Maria Semple called Where'd You Go, Bernadette. The book, which sat on the New York Times Bestseller list for a year, is told mostly through correspondence with some narration by Bernadette's teenage daughter Bee thrown in.  Annapurna Pictures bought the film's rights to adapt the stor...

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/26/2019 8:12 PM EST
Once again it is Oscar bait season and the plethora of well made, terrifically acted feature films is ramping up into high gear.  The (mostly) dramas are aesthetically pleasing, generally, thought-provoking and not only require the audience to think but to have them leave the theater feeling a range of emotions.  In her feature film direc...
