POMS Review — Do Seniors and Cheerleading Mix?

Poms review — This film about the unlikely pairing of seniors and cheerleading has a fab cast, but a drab script. Bless this movie’s heart! Southerner’s know that “Bless her heart,” is the socially correct preface to a thorough skewering. And since this film takes place in the south, I thought that was appropriate. Diane…

La La Land house

LA LA LAND House Makes a Splash on the Market

Remember that great La La Land house where the fully dressed guy takes a flying leap off the balcony into the pool? It now can be yours for only… Among many other gorgeous musical numbers in 2016’s La La Land, there’s a scene where Emma Stone‘s character and her roommates don primary-color party dresses and…

JT Leroy review

JT LEROY Review – A Movie Within A Film, A Truth Within A Lie

JT LeRoy review — A surprisingly pedestrian take on a fascinating and elaborate story. Everyone thought androgynous urchin Jeremiah Terminator “JT” LeRoy was a bestselling author in the late 1990s thanks to his heart-wrenching, poignant autobiographical novels “Sarah” and “The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things.” There’s just one problem: JT didn’t exist. He was…

Avengers Homes

Avengers Homes — Posh Places for Our Trusty Superheroes to Await the Endgame

No spoilers here! I just wanted to suggest a few fine Avengers homes where they can chill until they figure out how to deal with Thanos. When we last saw the Avengers at the end of “Infinity War,” only a handful remained alive. The rest had been vaporized when the evil Thanos snapped his Infinity…

Avengers: Endgame review

AVENGERS: ENDGAME Review — Best. Superhero Movie. Ever.

Avengers: Endgame Review — Run, don’t walk to the cineplex, and see it before the spoilers rob you of the pure joy of it all.  Avengers: Endgame has achieved what was previously considered impossible: it kept me not only riveted, but thrilled for the entirety of its three hours. Not once did my attention wander,…

Breakthrough review

BREAKTHROUGH Review — Faith-Based Fare Just in Time for Easter

Breakthrough Review — Sustenance for the faith-based, and an interesting look at a devout culture for non-believers. Before you non-believers roll your eyes the second you see the words “faith-based,” ask yourself if you’d have the same reaction to a film about, say, an ancient Native American or African tribe, their rituals, and faith in…

THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA Review — The Ghost That’s a Crying Shame

The Curse of La Llorona review — the tale of the weeping woman who steals children scared me almost to death. First off, for those of you who are not aware of the tale of La Llorona, let me give you some background to help you appreciate the film more. La Llorona (pronounced Your Row…

Little Review Hellboy review

LITTLE Review – HELLBOY Review — A Little Slice of …

Not being one to dwell on the negative, my Little review and my Hellboy review are short but not so sweet. Little Review — Big on potential, small on delivery You might have heard that Little is a flip of  Tom Hanks’ Big, switching up age, race and gender. That’s what I was expecting. But…

William review

WILLIAM Review — Sure, It’s About a Cloned Neanderthal, But It’s Not What You’d Expect

 William review — A surprisingly gentle yet provocative sci-fi drama about the evolution of a fish out of water. “Sweet” and “subtle” are not the first words you’d expect to read in a description of a sci-fi film about cloning a Neanderthal. But those are exactly the first two words that came to mind after…
