Ninety years ago, as a female in this country, I would not have been able to write this review and have it published.  Those doors would have been closed to me.  Even sixty years ago some of those doors still were not open to women as we were expected to stay at home and take care of our husband and children.  When Ruth Bader Ginsbur...

Actor/ Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) is known for his quirky, offbeat comedies so it's no surprise that he decided to tackle Darcey Bell's dark comedy/thriller A Simple Favor.  Outwardly, It seems like a perfect match as he infuses his personality into every thread of the movie but there is a seriousness that permeates which is some...

In order to bring us the thriller Venom, Columbia Pictures, Sony, and Marvel worked in conjunction and from the previews, Venom looked like the typical alien type scary movie.   I was very unsure of how it would set itself apart from all the other alien movies but Venom brings out the alien in everyone and is actually a carefully scripted cohe...

Racial profiling is an issue that seems to be plaguing this country more and more in the past few years.  Young, male minorities end up on the wrong side of an argument and are senselessly killed when a person in authority pulls a gun unnecessarily.  We have seen numerous news reports about it happening and several films based on this typ...

Semper Fidelis – Always Loyal… That is the motto of the United States Marine Corps.  Unless you have served as a Marine, you cannot really understand what that means.  Up until now, our perception of what being a marine is like is what we have seen in the media.  Movies like Full Metal Jacket and Born on The 4th of July ...

Imagine what Earth would be like in a post-apocalyptic world.  What if nuclear explosions hit multiple continents in a span of 60 minutes?  What would be left?  How would the world rebuild?  What would that look like?  Would it disintegrate into a dystopian society?  Mortal Engines, the new film based on the Phillip Re...

This month the comic book world was dealt a heavy blow when we lost a legend, the "Godfather of Superheroes", Mr. Stan Lee.  He created so many incredible characters that have endeared and changed over time.  I can think of no more fitting tribute to his legacy than Marvel Studios' latest animated feature, Spider-Man: Into the S...

It is a well-known fact in Hollywood that Denzel Washington (Fences) never reprises a role or makes a sequel to any of his films so it was a big surprise when it was announced he would be returning as Robert McCall for the second installment of The Equalizer.  The beloved, yet quirky, character from the 2014 movie was destined to be back as th...

The holiday season really is a magical time of the year.  With beautiful lights and gifts and a feeling of warmth and festivity, one can feel how lucky and grateful most of us are.  It is a time for sharing and spending time with family and friends, gathering for meals and traditions.  Some of these traditions include watching a favo...

Being royalty is never an easy lot in life but more so when you are a queen in the sixteenth century.  It's even more difficult when everyone is out to steal your throne, including a neighboring queen during an incredibly tumultuous time in your own country.  Mary, Queen of Scots, is that noblewoman.  Having become queen at a mer...
