Movie Review: ‘The Campaign’ Starring Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott

Posted: August 10, 2012 at 7:48 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

What better time is there to watch a political film than right in the middle of election season? The release of The Campaign couldn’t be more relevant, and reminds us just how silly politics can be.

Movie Review: ‘Drive’ Starring Ryan Gosling, Bryan Cranston, and Carey Mulligan

Many years ago, red-headed hellion Pippi Longstocking searched for the elusive “spink” in the book Pippi in the South Seas. Pippi didn’t even know what the hell “spink” was – it was simply a nonsense word she tried to apply to a rake, a disease and finally a beetle. She claimed she would know a […]

Movie Review: THE ART OF GETTING By Starring Emma Roberts, Freddie Highmore

Posted: June 16, 2011 at 11:08 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews

There are very few films now-a-days that you can go into completely blind.  Between magazines, television, and internet one is bound to see something about a movie before it hit theaters.  But THE ART OF GETTING BY was a rare opportunity where I was doing just that.  Seeing the film without knowing a single thing […]
