Gertrude Pridgett was born in April 1886 in Georgia…or, if you believe the 1900 census, she was born in 1882 in Alabama.  Regardless, despite her humble and uneventful beginnings, Gertrude would go on to become known as Ma Rainey (Viola Davis; Suicide Squad) a.k.a. the "Mother of the Blues".  She recorded music with the b...

In an age of Pixar/Disney/Illuminations computer-drawn animation, it's difficult to imagine "old school" hand-drawn feature films.  They are time-consuming and one wrong stroke of a pen could mean throwing out a drawing and starting all over again.  They also don't have the same level of precision or coloring that a comp...

Godmothered   Godmothered Streaming Review

Fairytales…they tend to start off with "once upon a time", end with "…and they lived happily ever after", and include at least one magical, fairy godmother.  Most little girls get the idea of a handsome prince sweeping them off their feet and their very own fairy godmother transforming them into beautiful prin...

The Last Vermeer   The Last Vermeer Streaming Review
(Alyn Darnay)  11/18/2020 10:11 AM EST
Just when you think every interesting story about WWII has been told and retold, along comes another, and this one as compelling as any that came before. "The Last Vermeer", is a tale of mystery, of Art Fraud, and the weeding out of Nazi collaboration at the end of the war. It's also a gripping courtroom drama with twist after twist and a...

Disney Channel has had a long history of making movies aimed at tweens and pre-teens.  High School Musical, Camp Rock, Princess Protection Project, Lemonade Mouth, Descendants, etc.  all were launch pads for their casts to move on to successful careers as adults and continued a legacy of clean, quality television programming from Disney.&...
