MOVIE: “TINA” Now on HBO!

By |2021-03-30T09:03:41-04:00March 29th, 2021|Documentary, Movies, Musicals|1 Comment

I have loved Tina Turner from the first moment I saw her perform. It may have been her very first TV appearance in 1960 on "American Bandstand." I surely saw her one and only appearance with the Ike & Tina Turner Revue on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1970. I had no context for what [...]

MOVIES: “THE MAURITANIAN”/ “LAND”

By |2021-03-06T16:44:55-04:00March 6th, 2021|Drama, Movies, Thriller|0 Comments

Some movies are torture. "Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar" is like jumping off a comedy cliff and finding yourself forever cringing in the world where jokes never land. Even Kristen Wiig can't save you. Some movies are about torture. THE MAURITANIAN is a film that doesn't tell us anything we didn't already [...]

The best reason to see this HULU feature film about iconic Jazz vocalist Billie Holiday is a galvanic performance by Grammy & now 2x Golden Globe-nominated singer/actress Andra Day in her first-ever big screen outing!

MOVIES: REUNION/BLISS/THE LITTLE THINGS

By |2021-02-09T19:09:01-04:00February 9th, 2021|Movies|0 Comments

Is it something in the air? The latest movies have left me wanting.  REUNION, a horror film out of New Zealand, starring Julia Ormond is one of the dreariest movies I've seen in a long time. Her character is living in a big, gloomy house stuffed with repressed memories and her aging husband, catatonic and [...]

MOVIES OVERLOOKED: BORAT/DAVID COPPERFIELD/THE CLIMB

By |2021-01-11T18:14:34-04:00January 11th, 2021|Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Kids, Movies|0 Comments

Happy New Year one and all.  As I write this, I am consumed by so much raw emotion--outrage, disgust, sadness, cautious optimism, disbelief, frustration--that I have hardly been able to focus on writing movie reviews. It's difficult to pull myself away from the nightmare still unfolding. I am holding my breath in the days leading [...]
