Get to Know Alicia Vikander

Posted: October 4, 2016 at 3:26 pm   /   Film, Off the Wall

Every so often in Hollywood a brand new talent emerges and proves to have real staying power. Think of the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Lupita Nyong’o. Five years ago even an avid film fan might not have known all those names, or at least might not have been familiar with the respective […]

When you hear about a musical titled, “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder,” there is little worry about the show resembling the ordinary. Throw in a 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical, and there is no question that something really special is going on at the theatre. And if there are still any doubts, […]

Movie Review: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac

Posted: May 27, 2016 at 7:44 am   /   Movie Reviews

It’s hard to believe that we are now nine films into the X-Men franchise, which kicked off in 2000 with X-Men and was the catalyst for the “serious” superhero films we know today. Although Blade came out two years earlier, it never had quite the commercial success of the original X movie – which brought […]

Review: ‘The Bridges of Madison County’ – From Spinner Rack to Center Stage

Posted: April 6, 2016 at 9:18 am   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews

“One of the most romantic stories ever written.” Or so they say. More romantic than Gone With the Wind? Or Romeo and Juliet? How about Pride and Prejudice? Somehow it is hard for me to believe that the story of a married woman who embarks on a four-day affair while her husband and kids are […]

Review: ‘If/Then’ at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis

Posted: March 22, 2016 at 1:05 pm   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews, Local

Have you ever wondered, in your daily life, “what if?” For most people, thousands of decisions are made at regular, without a thought going to what might happen if they were to choose differently, or how the smallest choice may have vastly different outcomes if made differently. “If” I do this, “Then” this might happen.

Riverdance Makes a Return to the Fabulous Fox For 20th Anniversary World Tour (Feb 12 – 14)

Posted: February 13, 2016 at 10:30 am   /   Live Theater Reviews

I can’t believe it has already been a few years since the Riverdance Farewell Tour came through St. Louis in 2012. It was an incredible show (read the review here), as we sent off the legendary production that had been touring for the better part of two decades across the globe. Fortunately for audiences in […]

You’ve watched the trailers. You’ve seen the billboards. You downloaded the leaked footage. You read the tweets. You listened to the interviews. By now, if you haven’t heard there is a Deadpool movie coming out, I’m not sure how you are reading an online review (unless your grandma printed it out at the library and […]

Disney NEWSIES Delivers at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis (January 19-31)

Posted: January 23, 2016 at 9:50 am   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews

Extra! Extra! Read All About It! It has been probably twenty years since I watched the 1992 film Newsies, starring a 17-year-old Christian Bale as Jack Kelly – the leader of what would become known as the “Newsboys Strike of 1899.” Aside from starring the future Oscar-winning actor, and being directed by Kenny Ortega, there […]

Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Starring John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac

Posted: December 17, 2015 at 9:49 am   /   Film, Movie Reviews

Star Wars is back. Not back like it was in 1999. But really, back. I remember the hype and anticipation surrounding a new Star Wars film being released for the first time since 1983. I was much younger than, and had a lot less film criticism under my belt. But I still knew something was […]
