Review: “The Lovers”

“The Lovers” – “Cheating and lying aren’t struggles.  They’re reasons to break up.” – Patti Callahan Henry Michael (Tracy Letts) and Mary (Debra Winger) have been married for eons.  Perhaps many of their years together have been happy, but not recently.  Residing in Santa Clarita, California, this 50-something couple share a comfortable suburban home and drive [...]

Review: “The Wall”

“The Wall” – What images immediately come to mind when you read the words, “war movie”?  Human history unfortunately can provide thousands of examples in which people become mired in mass conflict and attempt to kill one another, and the big screens sometimes masterfully recapture those horrific struggles.

Review: “The Dinner”

“The Dinner” – Look up “dinner” in the dictionary, and it reads “the principal meal of the day” and “a formal feast or banquet”.  For most households, however, dinner has a larger meaning.  It is a time when families congregate to share their experiences and feelings while also - functionally - breaking bread.  Sometimes laugher [...]

Review: “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”

I’ve been developing a theory over the past few years.  It still needs further research, but it seems to hold true.  You can tell a film will be exceptional or exceptionally poor based on the creativity of the opening credits.  The opening credits of GotG2 is a great example of this.  The team has assembled [...]

Review: “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract”

It's really hard for me to believe, but there are now a staggering 28 DC Animated Feature Films.  I remember in 2006 when the first one came out, Superman Doomsday, which was an adaptation the Death and Return of Superman story arc from back in the 90's.  Yet I could never have dreamed that they would find [...]

Review: “The Promise”

“The Promise” – “There are churches and mosques like you wouldn’t believe.” In 1914 Constantinople, this is Mikael Boghosian’s (Oscar Isaac) reaction to Turkey’s most prominent city.  Although cultural differences can be a source of tension and divisiveness, Turks and Armenians live in relative harmony during this time, not only in this massive cultural center, [...]
