Posted: February 14, 2019 at 8:53 am   /   Movie Reviews

Isn’t It Romantic? is 2019’s Valentine’s Day weekend rom-com that’s hoping to cash in as much of that date night moolah as it can over the love-themed holiday. It stars a surprisingly good Rebel Wilson in her first leading role as Natalie, a cynical single girl who has a jaded mentality when it comes to […]

Movie Review: ‘Happy Death Day 2 U’ Starring Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Phi Vu

Posted: February 14, 2019 at 8:47 am   /   Movie Reviews

Happy Death Day was a surprise hit in 2017. As an October slasher flick with a Groundhog’s Day gimmick, it served its purpose in being an entertaining comedy/horror despite some cringe level dialogue at times. With a $4.8 million Blumhouse budget and the film going on to gross over $125 million worldwide, a sequel was […]

Movie Review: ‘Glass’ Starring James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson

Movie Review: ‘Aquaman’ Starring Jason Mamoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson

Posted: December 21, 2018 at 8:39 am   /   Local

The character of Aquaman has had it kind of rough for quite some time. I have fond memories of shows like Family Guy poking fun at what appeared to be a ridiculous and even useless superhero. Anytime someone would try to defend Aquaman, someone else would just share a silly meme of him riding fish […]

When I first saw the trailer for Welcome to Marwen months ago, I was incredibly intrigued by what seemed to be an uplifting tale of real life artist/photographer Mark Hogancamp learning to cope with the trauma of a brutal assault he experienced and trying to make something of his life once again.
