Another Take on STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

Posted: December 20, 2019 at 9:12 am   /   Movie Reviews

(Excuse my brief history with the franchise. I promise I get into Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker a few paragraphs down.) Star Wars. Oh, what an incredible journey it has been.  It’s been years since I’ve attended midnight showings of the prequel trilogy where every seat was filled and additional people sat on the […]

Movie Review: CATS Starring Francesca Hayward, Idris Elba, Judi Dench

Posted: December 20, 2019 at 7:46 am   /   Local

Where to start with this trainwreck? From the moment the first trailer dropped for Cats, the internet was ready to pounce. And this time, rightfully so. Lovers of Broadway and musicals alike thought it couldn’t be as bad as the trailers looked.  Surely there has to be something more than creepy CGI cats with human faces and […]

Movie Review: STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

I can still remember my first exposure to Star Wars. I was pretty young, probably eight or nine, looking for a movie to watch. Back then, we had to rely on the old VCR and whatever movies had either been purchased or recorded off broadcast TV. I feel old just typing that. Anyway, one of […]

Movie Review: ‘Black Christmas’ Starring Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Lily Donoghue

Posted: December 13, 2019 at 1:35 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Another Friday the 13th is here, which means the release of at least one horror flick is destined to open in theatres this weekend. Being shy of two weeks before Christmas, it’s fair to say that nothing gets movie viewers into the holiday spirit more than a holiday-themed slasher flick, am I right? If that’s […]

Movie Review: ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ Starring; Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black

Posted: December 13, 2019 at 10:01 am   /   Local

I will admit that when I heard a sequel was being developed to the beloved 1995 Robin Williams classic, “Jumanji,” I was skeptical. Luckily, a great cast featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black, and Kevin Hart, along with a great script, carried the film to a $1 billion global box office haul. So, it […]

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

By Carla Scuzzo A sellout crowd welcomed Son Volt to Delmar Hall on Saturday night, November 23rd. Jay Farrar was in typical form – quiet and rather sullen. His musical style has not changed much over the years. He continues to preach his religion of political and personal inequities. While he is not generous with […]
