My mother always told me that if you didn’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all.  Well, if I were to follow that rule then this would be a very short review.  This flick was a complete disaster from the get go.  It’s one bad thriller cliche after another and even […]

When I saw the movie adaptation “Chicago” almost a decade ago, I knew absolutely nothing about it the story, the music, the dancing, anything.  And I was completely astounded.  It quickly became one of my favorite films of all time.  I loved the music.  I loved the dancing.  I loved the actors in the roles.
