Review: ‘Justice League’ Starring Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Henry Cavill

Posted: November 15, 2017 at 1:56 pm   /   Movie Reviews

I am going to be completely honest and admit my expectations for Zack Snyder’s Justice League did not amount to much. It’s no secret that it has been a rocky road for the DC extended universe of films between 2013 until today beginning with the bland and uninspiring Man of Steel to the most recent colorful and breath of […]

Review: Musical ‘On Your Feet!’ Tells Story of Gloria Estefan (thru Nov. 19)

Posted: November 10, 2017 at 10:46 am   /   Live Theater Reviews

Emilio and Gloria Estefan have won a combined 26 Grammys over their illustrious careers. On Your Feet! is a new musical (it opened on Broadway Nov. 2015) which tells the story of how the two got there. In similar fashion to some of my favorite musicals, like Mamma Mia! and Jersey Boys, the show aims to tell the story […]

Film Review: ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Starring Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe

Posted: November 10, 2017 at 8:24 am   /   Movie Reviews

“I see the world as it should be.” And with that, a simple explanation for how Hercule (pronounced Air-kyool) Poirot is able to deduce mysteries so easily. He’s weathered by age, old enough to not be fooled through naivete, yet idealistic that he remains optimistic, perhaps even yearning for a world without the crimes he’s […]

Film Review: ‘Daddy’s Home 2’ Starring Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Jon Lithgow, Mel Gibson

Posted: November 9, 2017 at 6:24 pm   /   Movie Reviews

2015’s “Daddy’s Home” was a quiet hit. The film took in $250 million, as Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell showed once again that they have great comedic chemistry together. The pair starred together in “The Other Guys,” another money maker. It was inevitable that a film that grossed $250 million wouldn’t garner a sequel, especially […]

Review: ‘Cirque du Soleil Crystal’ Mesmerizes Audiences With Cooler Than Cool Spectacular

Posted: November 6, 2017 at 4:34 pm   /   Live Theater Reviews, St. Louis Events

I remember seeing my first Cirque du Soleil show when I was a teenager, and being completely enamored with the breathtaking feats. Since then, I’ve seen many incredible versions of Cirque, but none quite like their latest production: Crystal. We were lucky enough to be one of the first cities to experience the show, which received a […]

Film Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Starring Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum

Posted: November 3, 2017 at 7:55 am   /   Movie Reviews

Just where exactly has Thor been? 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was the last significant appearance of Thor Odinson (not including the brief mid-credit cameo after Doctor Strange). There’s been five MCU movies since Ultron, including the all-but-titled Avengers flick that was Captain America: Civil War, which left fans everywhere wondering “Where is Thor?!” Well, […]

Review: ‘Heisenberg’ Gives Intimate Look at Life and Relationships at the Rep (Oct 28 – Nov 12)

Posted: October 28, 2017 at 7:29 am   /   Live Theater Reviews

Heisenberg opens The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis’ 2017-2018 Studio Theatre season. English playwright Simon Stephens (the author responsible for adapting Mark Haddon’s 2003 novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, into an incredible play) has crafted a wonderful story about an unlikely relationship. Georgie (Susan Louise O’Connor) is an unpredictable, unfiltered American […]

Home from Afghanistan, desperate for a sense of normalcy, Tausolo “Solo” Aieti (Beula Koale) presents the question to Adam Schumann (Miles Teller), his best friend and squadmate. In the last couple decades, […]

Film Review: ‘Suburbicon’ Starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac

Posted: October 27, 2017 at 8:25 am   /   Movie Reviews

It’s time to move out Last week, I gave the Michael Fassbender-led “thriller” The Snowman a ZERO STAR rating (see my review here), citing that I could not tell if it was failing in its attempt to be a serious crime drama or successful in its attempt to be a hilarious, intentionally cheesy detective film […]
