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

Posted: January 18, 2019 at 8:12 am   /   Local

In 1999, M. Night Shyamalan became a household name with his six-time Oscar-nominated film, The Sixth Sense. The following year, he gave us something even better (at least, in my opinion), and that is Unbreakable – a film that is basically a comic book that unfolds on screen, centralizing on the idea of superheroes possibly […]

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 […]

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 […]

By Carla Scuzzo It’s Wednesday at the Broadway Oyster Bar, so Sean Canan’s Voodoo Players are playing. This week, they take on The Beatles’ Let It Be album in its entirety.
