So many young people have dreams and aspirations of becoming stars.  Some of them hope to be actors, some rappers and some country music singers.  Rose-Lynn (Jessie Buckley; Beast) is one of the latter.  She is an anomaly living in her small town in Scotland dreaming of moving to Nashville to make it big.  Her chances are probab...

"You've got a friend in me"… since 1995 those words have been synonymous with the Disney animated movie Toy Story and Woody (Tom Hanks; Cast Away) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen; Home Improvement).  Over the next fifteen years, we were treated to two more films in the franchise that followed the adventures of Andy's toys as the...

The Last Black Man in San Francisco Theatrical Review

(Joey R Mannon)  6/14/2019 11:30 AM EST
If The Last Black Man in San Fransisco is any indication of the potential inherent in newcomers Joe Talbot (Director) and Jimmie Fails (Protagonist), then there is certainly much to anticipate down the road from these two. The film is so endearing, the story so engaging and the acting so skillful that it could present as a tough act to follow. ... Read More

Shaft Theatrical Review
Shaft   Shaft Theatrical Review
(Joey R Mannon)  6/13/2019 11:50 AM EST
A son-meets-father story producing a laugh-a-minute, Shaft delivers exactly what audiences come to see. The plot is simple, the premise is familiar, and the laughs from predictable yet impeccably-timed tag lines are abundant. This latest edition of the Shaft franchise, nineteen years after the previous release, finds the "black James Bond"... Read More

Do you believe aliens live amongst us here on earth,…hiding in plain sight?  Are you one of those individuals who is fascinated by conspiracy theories? Do you think our government is hiding secret agencies who go around "erasing" the evidence of aliens?  Well, then you know the premise of the MIB movie franchise that bega... Read More

It's the end of an era.  As Twentieth Century Fox closes out its final slate, they also close out one of their very successful franchises with this week's Dark Phoenix. Nineteen years ago in July 2000 X-Men came to movie theaters bringing yet another set of comic books to life on the big screen.  Nine movies later (not including the two D... Read More

Tomorrow Man Theatrical Review
Tomorrow Man   Tomorrow Man Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  5/31/2019 11:36 AM EST
Once upon a time I actually thought great actors and great acting could make any film work. Then, I grew up and figured out that only a great story can make a film great, no matter how good the actors in it may be. Without a compelling script that captures the audience from the start and continues to hold them through to the end, all you're left wi... Read More

What can you say about a movie that tries to totally capture the formative years of a ROCK GOD?A film that covers his childhood (I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues), his partnership (Daniel), his rise to fame (Honky Cat), his fame (Pinball Wizard), his relationships (Don't Go Breakin' My Heart), his addictions (Crocodile Rock), h...

Kids can be cruel.  The concept is not new and high school bullying can leave scars that last a lifetime.  For many, it builds character and changes who they are as a person.  It makes them emotionally stronger, tougher and hopefully less cruel towards others themselves.  Most grow up to be fairly well-adjusted adults but someti...

(Alyn Darnay)  5/29/2019 2:58 PM EST
The very first "Godzilla, King of the Monsters" movie I ever saw was the 1956 version shot on film in Black & White, and it starred of all people, Raymond Burr (Perry Mason). I watched it when I was about 7 years old on late night television decades after it was made and thought that a 400-foot tall dinosaur, awoken from undersea hibe... Read More
