By |2020-09-06T00:00:47-04:00September 5th, 2020|Action & Adventure, Drama, Epic & Historical, Family, Fantasy, Movies|0 Comments

MULAN just opened virtually and it's too bad you can't see this on the big screen. It's an expansively shot and handsomely choreographed epic adventure that will inspire all the women (and the men I hope) in your household; it inspires me still, and I know the story well. Disney's original animated version came out [...]

MOVIES: WORDS ON BATHROOM WALLS/TESLA

By |2020-08-26T18:55:26-04:00August 26th, 2020|Drama, Epic & Historical, Movies, Romance|0 Comments

Slim pickins at the movies thus far this season, but here's my take on two films just released beginning with one based on a young adult novel by Julia Walton: WORDS ON BATHROOM WALLS. I thought this was going to be just another doomed teen romance, of little interest to me given how [...]

HAMILTON: ON SCREEN

Who said you can't put theater on TV? The Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical HAMILTON has made the quantum leap from stage to screen and the result is a stunning, exhilarating, technical and artistic triumph. The musical's power, brilliance, and relevance has been cinematically galvanized for a country again on the brink of revolution.  [...]

It was a notably lackluster year for movies. I searched in vain all last spring and most of the summer for something exciting, challenging, beautiful to see. It wasn't until this fall that a tidal wave of smart, absorbing, artful films were released before awards season, and I did my best to stay afloat in [...]
