OK.  The big night is upon us and it's the wild west out there. Not just the Kevin Hart controversy; the cutting telecast categories controversy; the "only Gaga/Kendrick Lamar can sing" controversy; the "popular" movie category controversy; but also that crazy slate of Best Picture nominees with no front runner! Well, the final ballots are [...]

SO many excellent films came out at the 11th hour-- meaning not until FALL  2018 (ridiculously late I might add), that it has taken me until now to see all the good stuff. Here is a list of my TOP TEN favorite films of 2018.  Many of these films allowed us to see ourselves in [...]

MOVIE: THE FAVOURITE

By | December 4th, 2018|Comedy, Drama, Epic & Historical, Movies|0 Comments

It's my favorite film so far this season: THE FAVOURITE, an 18th century biopic about British Queen Anne. A good old-fashioned, period costume drama? No bloody way. It's "Dangerous Liaisons" shot through the looking glass, except that it's "Anne" instead of "Alice," and "les liaisons" are decidedly and historically lesbian. THE FAVOURITE is [...]

GAGA for GAGA: “A STAR IS BORN”

By | October 9th, 2018|Drama, Movies, Musicals, Romance|0 Comments

I knew he was good, but even from the trailer I could tell SHE was good too. What I couldn't tell was just HOW good they would be together. Writer/director/composer/star Bradley Cooper found his muse in singer/composer/performance artist Lady Gaga; their alchemy is what tethered me to this moving, though imperfect film, and [...]

MOVIES: BLACKkKLANSMAN & CRAZY RICH ASIANS

By | August 25th, 2018|Comedy, Drama, Epic & Historical, Movies, Romance, Thriller|2 Comments

The dog days of summer feature two movies based on books that require some navigation through PC muddied waters. BLACKkKLANSMAN is Spike Lee's take on the "true" tale of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington, Denzel's son!) the first black detective on the Colorado Springs Police Force in the early '70's who infiltrates the Ku Klux [...]

MOVIES: Rogers, Whitney, & Ruth

By | July 12th, 2018|Celebrity Interviews, Documentary, Drama, Family, Kids, Movies|2 Comments

Once again, I have waded through the summer's action-franchise-superhero swamp to find no new ground broken. "Jurasssic World: Fallen Kingdom" was a fun, velociraptorous romp through a gothic mansion. "Oceans 8" was an entertaining heist with fab female fashion and locations, but a plot full of holes which anchored its all-star female cast to a [...]
