MOVIE: SULLY

By | September 10th, 2016|Action & Adventure, Drama, Movies|3 Comments

Chesley Sullenberger is the reason computers will never take over the world. He's exactly the sort of hero Clint Eastwood would set his sights on-- another man who casts a long shadow over the techno-driven world. Eastwood has directed Tom Hanks as SULLY the pilot who made the miracle landing on the Hudson after a flock of birds crashed [...]

MOVIE: 50 YEARS LATER, KITTY GENOVESE’S BROTHER SEARCHES FOR ANSWERS IN “THE WITNESS”

By | August 23rd, 2016|Documentary, Drama, Movies|1 Comment

The story of Kitty Genovese, a young woman who was stabbed to death in NYC over 50 years ago while 38 people did nothing-- still haunts us. But that's not what really happened. Nevertheless, that horrifying tale of urban apathy reverberated through a family, branded a neighborhood, indicted the media, tore a hole in our innocence, and embedded [...]

MOVIE: FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS

By | August 15th, 2016|Comedy, Drama, Movies, Musicals, Romance|2 Comments

Hold onto your hats-- and your eardrums-- and prepare to laugh yourself silly!! Meryl Streep does it again, this time in a bravura "comedia-tura" performance as a real life "coloratura-challenged" heiress with a passion for grand opera, but no talent: FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS. Stephen Frears once again turns his attention to a strong female character [...]

MOVIE: JASON BOURNE

By | August 4th, 2016|Action & Adventure, Movies, Thriller|2 Comments

It was my last best hope for the dull summer movie offerings-- and it did not disappoint! JASON BOURNE held me fast from first frame to last. I must admit, the $1.3 billion dollar grossing franchise starring Boston's own MATT DAMON, has been an action fave of mine since its inception, not least of all because [...]

MOVIE: GHOSTBUSTERS 2016

By | July 20th, 2016|Comedy, Family, Movies|0 Comments

Who ya gonna call? Well in 2016 it's the all-female GHOSTBUSTERS, a re-envisioning, if you will (and many wouldn't), of the 1984 cult classic played by a fabulous foursome: Melissa McCarthy, and SNL's Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. This all woman cast--plus one token pretty boy hired as a receptionist for his looks and awkward dance moves (a riotous Chris [...]

MOVIE: SUMMER 2016 MOVIE DOLDRUMS

By | July 13th, 2016|Action & Adventure, Animation, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Family, Horror, Kids, Movies|0 Comments

This summer at the movies sucks. I normally despise that expression but it accurately describes the vacuum that is this summer's movie season. Underwhelming fare is now playing on mainstream screens everywhere, and I am searching like crazy for things I want to see. Here's what I don't want to see: --NEWSCASTERS playing themselves on the big screen and then complaining about [...]
