A Dog's Journey review

A DOG’S JOURNEY Review — Resistance is Futile. Scratch Its Belly.

A Dog’s Journey Review — Best of the three “A Dog’s…” movies, you’d better bring tissues. Let’s get this out of the way right up front: If you’ve ever loved a dog, owned a dog, petted a dog, seen a dog or even ‘liked’ a dog photo on Facebook, you WILL cry. It might not…

The Hustle review Tolkien review

The Hustle Review — Tolkien Review — Will Opposites Attract?

The Hustle review — Dirty Rotten Scoundrelettes I’ll say this for the female take on  Dirty Rotten Scoundrels: Anne Hathaway’s wardrobe is sublime, and she looks fabulous in every outfit. Oh, and the animated title sequence is great fun. Unfortunately, the rest of the film doesn’t deliver on its initial promise. What we have here…

Pokémon Detective Pikachu Review — Fans of the Game Will LOVE It

Pokemon Detective Pikachu review — 11-year-old critic Winston says it’s “fantastic!” To Pokémon fans new and old: You’ll be glad to see Pokémon Detective Pikachu.

Poms Review

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…

Long shot review

LONG SHOT Review — It Hits a Perfect Comedy Bullseye

Long Shot review — A classic rom com with a killer cast, full of biting humor and hilarious plot twists? Yes please! If you’re looking for the ideal movie to ease you back down after the fervor and fever pitch of Avengers: End Game, this is it. Who would have thought the graceful, elegant 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…
