MOVIE TIME: TENET/ BILL& TED FACE THE MUSIC

By |2020-09-08T15:47:22-04:00September 8th, 2020|Action & Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Movies|0 Comments

Has filmmaker Christopher Nolan ("Inception," Memento") outsmarted himself? Oh yes he has.

Jon Stewart who left his groundbreaking TV show THE DAILY SHOW 5 years ago to Trevor Noah, is back again in a larger format, but his sights are still laser-focused on the lunacy of the broken system in which we're trapped.  A cross between a movie and a very long joke, IRRESISTIBLE  has a punchline [...]

MOVIE: THE KING OF STATEN ISLAND

YES! FINALLY a summer movie--and it's a good one.  "The King of Staten Island" stars that tall gawky SNL cast member who dresses like a 12 year-old, was engaged to Ariana Grande for a minute, and sometimes plays the shallow, slack-jawed pool boy next door you want to rescue.
