I roused myself at the crack of 8AM this morning, and waded through the annoying byplay of hosts Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish) and Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace) to hear the announcement of the 94th OSCAR nominations and was happy to see so many of this year's best films and performances recognized by the Academy.

MOVIE: CRUELLA

By |2021-05-29T17:19:39-04:00May 29th, 2021|Comedy, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies|0 Comments

I've always had a weakness for villainesses. Sleeping Beauty was a snooze compared to the magnificent Maleficent. I adored Snow White; still her ravishing wicked queen of a stepmother was disturbingly alluring. Even that green-complected shrew on a broom who threatened Dorothy, the Wicked Witch of the West (the sheer power of that woman with [...]

MOVIES OVERLOOKED: BORAT/DAVID COPPERFIELD/THE CLIMB

By |2021-01-11T18:14:34-05:00January 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 [...]

CHRISTMAS CLASSICS–VIRTUAL EDITIONS & GOOD AS NEW!!

By |2020-12-23T16:20:55-05:00December 23rd, 2020|Dance, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Music, Musicals, Theater|0 Comments

The two events I recommend here are among the most joyous presentations of the season, and are just as, if not more effective in virtual form! One marks its 5oth ANNIVERSARY this year, that medieval pageant celebrating the winter solstice known as THE CHRISTMAS REVELS. The second has been a classic on page, stage, and [...]

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. His latest and much anticipated TENET is another mind bender of a sci-fi thriller, but its thrills are tempered by the tedium of its method as an end in itself, instead of a means to an end we care about. The result is [...]

LABOR DAY WEEKEND MOVIES CONTINUE: MULAN

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 [...]

MOVIE: “WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES”– A Tale For Our Times

By |2020-07-13T19:59:44-04:00July 10th, 2020|Comedy, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Musicals|0 Comments

You are in luck-- a fresh, exhilarating new film opens on YOUR screens this weekend: WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES.  A buzzy hit at Sundance last year, it's the debut feature film by writer/director Makoto Nagahisa and sparkles with inventiveness and style, humor and wisdom, humanity and digital dazzle. It's a fizzy mashup of retro video [...]
