Stan & Ollie Theatrical Review

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...

Aquaman Theatrical Review

(Alyn Darnay)  12/19/2018 9:19 PM EDT
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

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...

There's any number of good reasons why we go to movies. Why we plunk down our hard earned money, sit in a dark theater away from the world, and watch something unveil itself on the big screen in front of us. One thing I know for sure, I think I know for sure, is that we don't go to movies to be made further depressed than the world we live in is al... Read More

Mary Queen of Scots Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/6/2018 9:57 AM EDT
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...

Six years ago we fell in love with video game characters Wreck-It Ralph (John C. Reilly; Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman; A Million Ways to Die in the West).  These two worked their way into our hearts and stayed there.  We routed for them despite their "glitches" and were so happy whe...
