Every year since 2014’s Maleficent, Disney has released a live action re-imagining of one of their famous animated features.

I have a confession to make. I didn’t really watch Disney films as a child. Okay, that isn’t completely accurate. Dumbo was one of my favorite movies growing up, and when I was 9, my sister dragged me to the theaters to watch The Lion King for her birthday. Beyond that, though, I never watched […]

Extra! Extra! Read All About It! It has been probably twenty years since I watched the 1992 film Newsies, starring a 17-year-old Christian Bale as Jack Kelly – the leader of what would become known as the “Newsboys Strike of 1899.” Aside from starring the future Oscar-winning actor, and being directed by Kenny Ortega, there […]

Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Starring John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac

Posted: December 17, 2015 at 9:49 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews

Star Wars is back. Not back like it was in 1999. But really, back. I remember the hype and anticipation surrounding a new Star Wars film being released for the first time since 1983. I was much younger than, and had a lot less film criticism under my belt. But I still knew something was […]

Sharon Suchoval joins us this week for Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out.

Finally.  After years of speculation and two lackluster (albeit not from a money making stand point) entries into the Spider-Man mythos, Disney/Marvel and Sony Pictures have come to an agreement to share the rights to The Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. This deal will bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and will allow Marvel to […]

Perspective is a powerful tool. Oftentimes marred by a person’s opinion or emotions, differing perspectives can be deleterious. The inability to maintain the same interpretation of events or words can pit former allies against each other and bring down powerful entities. On the other hand, being able to view the world from another person’s point […]

There’s been all kinds of Marvel movie in the last week.  With the release of the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer coupled with the announcement of  the cast for the Fantastic Four reboot, one must ask, what else  could Marvel Films have up their sleeves?  Why not start pre-production work on the long talked about Dr. […]
