From the time they are little, girls are taught to wait for their "prince charming" to come.  As they get older these fairytales take on a different slant in the form of the ever popular "romantic comedy" genre movie.  However, Natalie (Rebel Wilson; Pitch Perfect) was always told by her mother that those fantasies wer...

When James Cameron (Avatar; Titanic) read Yukito Kishiro's Manga, Gunnm, twenty years ago he knew he wanted to make it into a major motion picture with himself directing.  However, his other projects derailed his desire and, after having penned the screenplay, Cameron handed over the work to protégé, Robert Rodriguez (Sin Cit...

In June 1914, a young Bosnian named Gavrilo Princip, tired of the Austro- Hungarian rule in Bosnia, assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie in Sarajevo.  This act led to the July Crisis and by August 1914 France, Britain, and Russia were at war with Austria-Hungry, Germany, and Italy.  This conflict became known as Worl...

Once upon a time...That's the way all fairytales, old and new, usually begins, so I thought I'd start my review by honoring this modern take on one of them in the same way. "The Kid Who Would Be King" is quite simply a wonderfully bright new take on the Arthurian legend. Part "Goonies" style action adventure, part allegory, and ... Read More

Over the years the entertainment industry has given birth to some very beguilingly comedy duos. I'm sure you know some of them; they crop up every decade. Some disappear as quickly as they arrived, others leave behind them a vague memory, but a few brilliant ones leave behind an enduring legacy.Unless you've lived under a rock somewhere, you'll kno...

M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) is known for his dramatic thrillers that offer a twist.  He usually keeps the audience guessing as to what is really going on and reveals the truth at the end, often to the surprise of the viewers.  In 2000 he presented fans with a different type of "superhero" story in Unbreakable starring S...

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...

By any definition, "Aquaman" is a certified Blockbuster, a mega-action superhero flick filled with spectacle, cool visuals, decadent insanity, and frenetic fun. It's quite probably the best film of the ‘comic book' Superhero genre brought to the screen so far.The scope of the eye candy here is breathtaking; from the clever underwate... Read More

Here we go again, another English Period Piece. This one is about Queen Anne and it's thinly disguised as a cynical comedy of royal manners. In reality, it's a nasty, vicious, profane, royal story about two women and their devious plotting and scheming against each other, to become the favorite confidant to the Queen. Take confidant, to mean lover;... Read More
