Film Review: ’12 Strong’ Starring Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Peña

Posted: January 19, 2018 at 10:17 am   /   Movie Reviews

I admit it, I’m a sucker for movies based on true events. Sure, there are usually a lot of liberties taken with the truth, with some movies distorting the truth so much they hardly resemble real life, but much of the time, we can at least draw concepts and ideas and appreciate what the characters […]

Review: ‘School of Rock’ Musical Lives Up To Its Name at Fabulous Fox

Posted: January 19, 2018 at 9:14 am   /   Live Theater Reviews

It has been several years since I’ve seen the 2003 comedy School of Rock, directed by Richard Linklater and starring Jack Black. But I do remember the film being quite funny, and how entertaining it was seeing Black’s character teaching a bunch of private school kids how to rock. So I expected a fun show […]

Film Review: ‘Phantom Thread’ Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville, Vicky Krieps

Posted: January 12, 2018 at 1:24 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Phantom Thread is the story of a 1950’s dress-maker named Reynolds Woodcock, portrayed brilliantly (as always) by Daniel Day-Lewis. This is Day-Lewis’ second collaboration with director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will be Blood) and reportedly his final role before retirement. There were rumors of him wanting to retire before he took on this film, but […]

Film Review: ‘The Commuter’ Starring Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson

Posted: January 12, 2018 at 8:53 am   /   Movie Reviews

After tackling planes in 2015’s Non-Stop, Liam Neeson is back to tackle trains in the latest entry to his action movie repertoire with The Commuter, and it’s more or less the same movie. This is Neeson’s fourth collaboration with director Jaume Collet-Serra (Run All Night and Unknown being the other two), and it’s pretty much […]

Film Review: ‘Paddington 2’ Starring Ben Wishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Sally Hawkins

Posted: January 12, 2018 at 8:29 am   /   Movie Reviews

What a delightful film. Growing up, I can’t say I recall having read any of Michael Bond’s A Bear Called Paddington books, but I can’t imagine they’re any less charming than the two films that have been adapted from them. I watched 2015’s Paddington just before Paddington 2 and was enamored by its charm and […]

Theatre Review: THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES at The Rep (Through Jan. 28)

Posted: January 10, 2018 at 11:16 am   /   Live Theater Reviews

Written and created by Roger Bean Directed and choreographed by Melissa Rain Anderson If I could travel back in time for music, the ’50s and ’60s would be high on my list of destinations. Experiencing artists like The McGuire Sisters (“Sugartime,” “Sincerely,” “Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight”), The Chordettes (“Lollipop,” “Mr. Sandman”), and Connie Francis (“Stupid Cupid” & “Lipstick on […]

The Resolution tour stopped by the Chafeitz Arena this Saturday Dec. 28th and it held an awesome roster. KiDGoalSs, the YouTube Sensation, opened up the show with a three song set. Unfortunately their mic’s seemed to be malfunctioning but the members pulled through and delivered a strong concert performance. The kids can really entertain! Needing […]

Top 10 Albums of 2017

Posted: December 28, 2017 at 5:13 pm   /   CD Reviews, Local, Music, Music News, Reviews

To me, it was a weird year for music. It was hard for me to get into a lot of the new rock and hip hop that was released. In fact, a number of my favorite albums didn’t come out until the latter half of the year. I was also in the minority of those […]

Film Review: ‘All the Money in the World’ Starring Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer

All the Money in the World is directed by Ridley Scott and is adapted from the 1995 book Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty. Aside from a little bit of dramatization, this is the mostly true story of the 1973 kidnapping of the grandson of the richest […]

Movie Review: ‘Bright’ starring: Will Smith, Joel Edgerton

Posted: December 22, 2017 at 7:09 pm   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

Will Smith deserves so much better. Let’s hope Smith doesn’t go the same route as Adam Sandler, but it looks like the once bankable star just might. There is no denying that Sandler hasn’t made a decent movie in 10 years. Some may argue if he ever did. Well, The Fresh Prince is working on […]
