Downton Abbey Theatrical Review
Downton Abbey   Downton Abbey Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  9/19/2019 5:11 PM EDT
"Downton Abbey" is sumptuous and stylish in a way the touches your heart and moves your soul. It's rather like a cherished overcoat you snuggle into in winter that's at once familiar, comfortable and warm. Of all the British period pieces about upper class families living in the 1920's that I've seen over the years, this one is by far the... Read More

Ad Astra Theatrical Review
Ad Astra   Ad Astra Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  9/17/2019 11:19 AM EDT
Before you ask and to clear up one piece of confusion about this film, the title "Ad Astra" is Latin for "To The Stars", which this movie is somewhat all about. I say somewhat because the story borrows liberally from Joseph Conrad's ‘Heart Of Darkness" in the same way ‘Apocalypse Now' utilized the journey and th... Read More

The moment Jennifer Lopez steps on to the stage dressed in dental floss, and smiles and begins her Pole Dancing routine as the patrons of "Move Gentleman's Club" throw hundreds of dollars at her, you know this is going to be the role she'll be remembered for. Not since she and George Clooney tussled in the trunk of a car in "Out... Read More

The Goldfinch is a 1654 painting by Carel Fabritius, which depicts the little bird chained to its feeder that is mounted on a wall.  In 2013 author Donna Tartt used the painting as one of the central characters in her novel, The Goldfinch.  The book went on to win the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and this week Amazon Studios brings the...

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/3/2019 12:01 PM EDT
Arguably, one of the most highly anticipated films of this year is the ending of the highest-grossing horror film of all time…It.  People have been waiting for It Chapter Two since they flocked to theaters two years ago to watch Pennywise the clown (Bill Skarsgard; Deadpool 2) terrorize the small town of Derry.  I suppose the "...

Every once and awhile a small film comes along that unexpectedly packs a punch to the heart and unarms you with its charm. This film is like that. It's a walking, talking, a riff on a modern Mark Twain style adventure tale, that adds so many more layers to what's expected, you'll find yourself moved emotionally by its evolving storyline...

In 1993 DC Comics opened an offshoot branch called Vertigo.  It was used to publish the more graphic stories that couldn't be published under the Comics Code Authority.  It allowed DC Comics to offer readers more graphic violence, nudity, drug use, and profanity.  One of these stories revolved around mob wives and was called The Kitc...

FACT: Of all the animal species in the world, the one we humans are closest to and have formed the most lasting relationship with is the dog. It's a relationship that started over 100,000 years ago, just about as long as we've trod this earth, and may actually be responsible for our survival as a species. FACT: It's known that when humans pet ...

In 2001 we were introduced to Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel, xXx), Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker, Running Scared) and a host of other colorful characters in Universal Pictures' The Fast and The Furious.  The movie centered around the idea of family and what that means surrounded by a backdrop of fast cars.  Since then there have been seven ot...

Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) has made quite the name for himself as a filmmaker.  In 1992 his movie Reservoir Dogs became an instant hit after being screened at the Sundance Film Festival.  Then in 1994 Pulp Fiction won over audiences with its non-linear style of storytelling and its eclectic soundtrack.  Since then he has had nu...
