CRUELLA – Movie Review

Ever since blowing people’s minds worldwide as 2016’s CGI “The Jungle Book” and 2017’s live-action “Beauty and the Best” earned in the ballpark of $1 billion apiece, Walt Disney Studios has been trying to find other classic cartoons they can bring to dynamic new life. This summer brings us their latest effort, “Cruella”, which provides… Continue Reading CRUELLA – Movie Review

This week marks the official return of blockbusters to movie theatres after 15 months of pandemic paranoia causing studios to hold their best movies due to many theatres being closed. Two big movies – the sci-fi/horror sequel “A Quiet Place – Part II” and the live-action Disney movie “Cruella” (which I’ll review for next week)–… Continue Reading NOW PLAYING – Movie Reviews

MOVIE REVIEW – “Here Today”

This week I’m focusing on a movie that’s in theaters, although it’s playing just 1200 screens – about a third of what most major releases get these days. It also came out last week, so please go support it so that it’s not driven out of theatres for next week. I’m talking about “Here Today,”… Continue Reading MOVIE REVIEW – “Here Today”

NOW STREAMING – April Movie Reviews

This week, we have two distinctly different movies from Netflix: first, a lighthearted documentary called “The Last Blockbuster,” which recounts the rise and fall of Blockbuster Video with a special focus on the very last Blockbuster store in the world; and “Concrete Cowboy,” a stunning drama that’s nearly as powerful as the 1991 Oscar-nominated classic “Boyz N The Hood.”… Continue Reading NOW STREAMING – April Movie Reviews

resurrection movie


With Holy Week upon us, everyone’s minds are on the story of Jesus’ crucifixion, death and Resurrection – the three incidents that are at the core of the message of salvation offered by faith in Christ. And so it’s fitting that this week, we are spotlighting a wonderful new film that’s available on the Discovery… Continue Reading RESURRECTION – Movie Review

This week I’m looking at a couple of veteran performers in movies of wildly different quality, both of which are found on Amazon Prime. Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall reteam in the sequel to “Coming to America” called “Coming 2 America” (the lame title is just the start of its weaknesses), which debuts today. Meanwhile,… Continue Reading MOVIE REVIEWS – Now Playing

After nearly a year of fighting the pandemic and living in a world where most comedy clubs are closed because people are scared to laugh around each other, we could all use some good humor. Thankfully, Netflix has come to the rescue with a couple of new offerings that bring comedy that’s also clean, so… Continue Reading NOW STREAMING – Entertainment Reviews

Last week I expressed my total delight in the fact that Oct. 23 was the best day of the year so far for pop culture, thanks to a solid new Bill Murray movie and both an album and documentary from Bruce Springsteen. I only previewed those selections, however, so this week I’m writing my actual… Continue Reading STREAMING NOW – Reviews
