MOVIE REVIEW - A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

Written by
I wish I could say this is perfect, but I can't.  But what I can say is that Tom Hanks is terrific in this darn good movie that puts PBS TV Icon Fred Rogers front and center.  And he deserves it.  This is based on true events, but sadly it deals far too much about a middle aged reporter and his daddy issues from years ago that are relateble for sure, but in the end,…

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

Written by
This may be the biggest weekend at the movies in a long time, as far as new movies are concerned.  Thanksgiving week.   A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood Tom Hanks.  Thanksgiving weekend. A fully immersable role.  PG-13.  This movie about Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers) is on the list of "mandatory going."  You almost have to go, like it's a city ordinance of something.  With all due respect to the incredible Hanks, I think many…

MOVIE REVIEW - The Good Liar

Written by
You may think this is just another movie for the over 70's crowd to go see, but you would be wrong, and still technically right I guess. Yes, this stars Helen Mirren, and Ian McKellen, neither one can wear the Spring Chicken costume anymore, or ride the MIllenium Force probably.  But this is really good.  Indeed, they are the stars here, but the real star of this movie, is - the script.  And today, that's…

MOVIE PREVIEW - New This Week!

Written by
Charlies Angels Here we go again, Charlies Angels. A new cast, a new spin and new look.  The TV show of the 1970's was groundbreaking to a degree.  We had never seen a show like it before, and it essentially made stars out of those not stars before.  Although the early returns are that the critics seem to like it.  That all seems so long ago, as this has been watered down, and made a…

MOVIE REVIEW - Midway

Written by
The national critics are overall not being kind to the latest WWII epic, Midway. This has been told once before in the 1976 film of the same name.  Was that a perfect picture? No. And niether is this.  But that doesn't mean it's not important, or bad.  This is pretty darn good. There has been a ton made of the amount of CGI in this movie, and I can't understand that.  The same critics make…

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

Written by
Terminator:Dark Fate I love the movies, and I love this time of the year at the movies. But do we need Linda Hamilton returning to a going on 40 year old franchise, that seems to never want to end?  I'm not so sure we do. Nothing against Linda Hamilton, but it is becomming tiresome seeing the incredible lack of original ideas out of a place touted as the most creative place on earth.    …

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

Black AndBlue This is a police thriller that has a good cast, and story. Problem is, this is not going to be on as many screens as they would like for an opening weekend.  But This is expected to be the biggest opening of the weekend, as far as NEW movies are concerned.     It may make the top 4 or so.   Countdown OK, a killer app.  That's right, a smart phone app…

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

Written by
Maleficent:Mistress Of Evil This franchise is huge, and this is going to be a big hit this weekend and well beyond.  Seems fans just can't get enough of Good VS. Evil, sorcery, and this kind of looking film.  This will knock off Joker which has been a huge hit in the past couple weeks.     Perfect release time for this, and everything is lining up for a multi week #1 run.   Zombieland: Double…
