Movie Review: ‘Knives Out’ Starring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis

Posted: November 27, 2019 at 10:13 am   /   Movie Reviews

Sometimes, you think you have a movie figured out from the beginning. Sometimes, the movie tells you what happens halfway through. And sometimes, even when it tells you, it still pulls the rug out from underneath your feet. With murder mysteries, usually it ends up being a combination of all three. They’re fun for a […]

Movie Review: ‘Queen & Slim’ Starring Daniel Kaluuya​, Jodie Turner-Smith​

Posted: November 27, 2019 at 10:06 am   /   Movie Reviews

At a very basic level, Queen & Slim could best be described as a bad tinder date turned into a nightmare. Adding themes of racial tension and injustice, however, the film becomes a more intimate and horrifying commentary on what it’s like to be black in America today.  The film begins with stars Daniel Kaluuya […]

Concert Review: Son Volt at Delmar Hall

Posted: November 26, 2019 at 11:24 am   /   Local

Sure, I got my fill of Saturday morning cartoons: Animaniacs, X-Men, and the like. But during the week, especially when I was very young, I ended up watching a lot of PBS. I […]

Posted: November 22, 2019 at 10:31 am   /   Local

I usually try to open my movie reviews with a fun intro or clever anecdote, but I’m coming up with a complete blank for 21 Bridges. I was pretty excited for this movie. Chadwick Boseman, the Russo brothers producing, and the trailer for the movie made it seem like it’d be a fantastic manhunt thriller. […]

Martin Scorcese is one of the great American directors. His film resume includes ‘Goodfellas,’ ‘Casino,’ ‘The Departed,’ and ‘Wolf of Wall Street,’ all of which are in my top 10 favorite films of all time. Pair him with Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci and his films are almost guaranteed to be instant classics. The new […]

By Bob O’ Mahony and Carla Scuzzo A familiar crowd was warmed up by local legends, the Bottle Rockets, playing the Fox for the first time in some 22 years.  The Bottle Rockets were from the same alt-country period of the St. Louis music scene, sometime working, sometimes playing together.  They did a well put […]
