My Review of 'Paddington 2'
Paddington 2 came out last year and quite honestly, I didn't expect a sequel to Paddington. The first movie was a surprise hit. I was one of the doubters thinking that it wouldn't succeed, but after I...

'Us,' (2019) is Jordan Peele's 'Late Registration' (2005). Like Kanye West did over a decade ago, Peele avoids the sophomore jinx with equal measures of bravura and aplomb.

'The White Devil'
The White Devil is a marvelously staged play that deals an early modern tragedy, a type of play in which crime spurs secret retaliation that in turn spurs further revenge. We see this cycle when Branc...
My Review of "Wonder"
I didn't really hear much about the movie, Wonder, when it first came out. I guess it's a lower budget movie with little money for advertising. There was barely any press, so it kind of slipped under ...

The following review is not spoiler-free. I’ve tried to keep it as vague as possible, but in order to discuss the movie fully, details had to be made. How to Train Your Dragon 3 was a wonderful additi...

'Grease': My Favourite Film
Grease (Randal Kleiser, 1978) will forever hold the title of My All-Time Favourite Film. To me, it's much more than a story of how the guy gets the girl, with a handful of catchy songs. Kleiser’s film...

A Review of 'Secret City' Season 2 Episode 5 - "For Whom the Bell Tolls"
We are nearly there now! And things are cranking up nicely. Episode five begins with Caroline (Laura Gordon) surprising Harriet (Anna Torv) and demanding that she gets her another audience with the PM. Caroline now seems a bit unhinged and she doesn't confirm or deny she killed her friend. It's just a shame she didn't spill the beans when she was talking to the PM before. The irony is of course that he also wants to talk to her!
