MOVIE: FIFTY SHADES OF GREY

By | February 12th, 2015|Drama, Movies, Romance|1 Comment

I liked the movie FIFTY SHADES OF GREY. There I said it--and I can already hear the PC police getting their panties in a twist. (Don't even get me started on the Mt. Holyoke College student group who cancelled a production of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES because it wasn't inclusive of trans women. Moronic.) Indeed, the entire [...]

MY TEN BEST MOVIES OF 2014!

By | January 1st, 2015|Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Musicals, Romance, Theater|7 Comments

 BOYHOOD: Richard Linklater's extraordinary "12 years a film" feat! He directed the same cast over a dozen years and captured the ephemeral truth about one boy's childhood and growing up in a broken home. It's a "meta" experience for filmgoers who watch the actors and the characters they play, age on camera over time, while the boy played by the soulful Ellar Coltrane--expressive and [...]

BEST MOVIES TO SEE NOW: “THE FAULT IN OUR STARS” & “EDGE OF TOMORROW”

By | June 13th, 2014|Action & Adventure, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Romance, Science Fiction|1 Comment

So many screens-- so little to see. GODZILLA is godawful. And put a big X through X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Coasting on the devotion of diehard fans who remember the back stories, this latest installment suffers from franchise burnout and never breaks a sweat. How about MALEFICENT? What could be better than Angelina Jolie [...]

Watching FADING GIGOLO the new movie written, directed by, and starring John Turturrro, is like joining a crazy conversation in progress-- and trying to catch up. Woody Allen plays an old bookseller named Murray-- who is closing up shop, but is hardly out of ideas. In fact, he's got a dilly: he's pitching his friend [...]

MOVIE: WINTER’S TALE

By | February 14th, 2014|Drama, Fantasy, Movies, Romance|1 Comment

I am sitting here as a nor'easter wails outside, thinking about WINTER'S TALE and how cold it left me. It's also not going to do much for the ravishing young actress whose character "Lady Sybil" was killed off in DOWNTOWN ABBEY--Jessica Brown Findlay. Her career will remain in the deep freeze until a better movie [...]

MOVIE: BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR

By | November 21st, 2013|Drama, Movies, Romance|1 Comment

BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR has certainly heated up the conversation about women, sex on film, and madmen directors. Since the NC-17 rated movie along with its leading ladies (a first!) won the Palme d'Or the highest honor at this year's Cannes Film Festival, arguments have erupted, accusations have been hurled, and tears have been [...]
