Theatre Review: Disney’s ‘Aladdin’ Grants All Our Wishes at The Fabulous Fox!

Posted: November 16, 2018 at 10:17 am   /   Local

Like most people living today, I grew up a child of Disney. My VHS copy of 1992’s Aladdin was no stranger to the VCR, and the film remains one of my favorite animated features to this day. So it goes without saying that a stage adaptation of the beloved classic had a lot to live up […]

Movie Review: ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler

Posted: November 16, 2018 at 7:49 am   /   Movie Reviews

Fantastic Disappointment: The Crimes of Warner Bros. As I, almost shamefully, revealed in my review of 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, I have not taken many advantages of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. I saw Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone, but never continued watching the series. I read the first 15 pages […]

Calling all pop-punk, alternative, and rock lovers: The Faim, an Australian group originally created in the small town of Perth, will be playing Fubar in Saint Louis this Saturday, November 17th, alongside Hands Like Houses.  With the way modern-day music can be, it’s sometimes a bit questionable as to whether or not these “pop-punk/rock” groups […]

Movie Review: ‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’ Starring Claire Foy, Sverrir Gudnason

Posted: November 9, 2018 at 8:35 am   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

Leave it to Hollywood to make another unnecessary film. That’s the feeling I got while watching The Girl in the Spider’s Web. It’s just not needed. The franchise adapted from Stieg Larsson’s best-selling novels has not fared as well in Hollywood, as the films have failed to bring in the big bucks that studio executives had […]

Movie Review: DR. SEUSS’ THE GRINCH Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Cameron Seely, Rashida Jones

Posted: November 9, 2018 at 7:56 am   /   Movie Reviews

In 1966, the Dr. Seuss-penned children’s book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! was adapted into a half-hour television special which later became a holiday classic. For thirty-four years, it was a staple of holiday programming (and still is) and the only adaptation of the book until a live-action feature-length version of the film starring Jim […]
