MOVIES: JURASSIC WORLD/TOMORROWLAND/I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS/ABOUT ELLY

By | June 18th, 2015|Drama, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Romance, Science Fiction, Thriller|1 Comment

The blockbusters and the hidden gems are battling it out this summer, and here are the winners and losers according to my calculations. I bit the bullet and saw the number one movie in the country: JURASSIC WORLD-- the JURASSIC PARK sequel that's tearing up the box office, with the biggest opening of all time anywhere, ever, on [...]

MOVIES: ALOHA/SPY

By | June 8th, 2015|Action & Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Movies, Romance|2 Comments

Here are two movies to lighten up a summer day-- ALOHA boasts a first rate cast BRADLEY COOPER, EMMA STONE, and RACHEL McADAMS in an offbeat Hawaiian love triangle written/directed by the quirky Cameron Crowe. At his best he gave us JERRY MAGUIRE and ALMOST FAMOUS and at his worst gave us ZOO. ALOHA falls somewhere [...]

MOVIES: MAD MAX/MADDING CROWDS/MOTHERS & DAUGHTERS

By | May 26th, 2015|Action & Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Movies, Romance, Thriller|1 Comment

I've had women on the brain at the movies lately, and we are out there in significant numbers this season along with the boys of summer. I happened to see two sequels MAD MAX: FURY ROAD and  PITCH PERFECT 2 on the same day and fully expected to tolerate the former and enjoy the latter. Not even close. PITCH "imperfect" began with a crude joke, meandered [...]

MOVIE: SERENA

By | March 30th, 2015|Drama, Horror, Movies, Romance|1 Comment

January to March is typically a wasteland for good movies but here's one that might not be a complete waste, because it features two of our biggest stars and best actors. SERENA is based on the novel by Ron Rash, and features Best Actress Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence in the title role and Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper. This is a melodramatic romance set in the moody [...]

MOVIE: THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL

By | March 12th, 2015|Comedy, Drama, Movies, Musicals, Romance|1 Comment

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is definitely second best--as most sequels are, but this cast and locale still manage to make the film a delightful, if passing, fancy. Richard Gere in the mix (yes, the hunk is getting on) adds an extra bit of spice. The old gang has returned, an elderly but colorful band of wandering misfits who have taken up [...]
