The first full day for the festival took me on a trip around the world. That’s one of the values of film festivals, we get to see other lands and cultures without the expense and time of travel. (Not that I wouldn’t love being able to go to so many places.)
Hannah is something of a masters acting demonstration by Charlotte Rampling.
If there was any concerns whether or not Rian Johnson did a good job on The Last Jedi, they were put to rest this week when Lucasfilm announced that Johnson will be creating a new trilogy that is “…separate from the episodic Skywalker saga. Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy… [Read More]
If I thought I received some crazy looks when I admitted that I hadn’t watched Indiana Jones, I was in no way prepared for the outright shock from some when I said the words, “I’ve never seen The Goonies.” I guess as a child of the 80’s, it was merely assumed that I had viewed… [Read More]

The second film was a big disappointment and a missed opportunity with one of Thor’s comic based greatest foes in Malekith. In Thor: Ragnarok, we get arguably the best film out… [Read More]
For full audio of our interview with Jim, stream below: While he’s perhaps best known for his role as perennial nice guy Jerry Gurgich from Parks and Recreation, actor Jim O’Heir finally gets to usurp those expectations in the dark comedy, Middle Man. Written and directed by Ned Crowley, Middle Man tells the story of… [Read More]
God’s Own Country will no doubt be compared to Brokeback Mountain. The easy comparison crossed my mind as I watched the screener for this film. But the dynamics of this relationship bring an entirely different feel to this love story.
