I have been a film critic for nearly 20 years and worked professionally, as a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association for the past 9 years. My favorite movie of all time is The Big Lebowski because it always feels new.
Check Out these 10 Weird Products I Found on Amazon!
People buy millions of different items from Amazon.com. It really is as if the company has any kind of product that you can imagine. With that in mind, I began to wonder what the weirdest items I could find might be. It didn’t take long for me to find a treasure trove of the bizarre and fantastically tacky items one might find on the world’s largest online shopping marketplace.
Movie Review: 'The Spine of Night'
The Spine of Night is an epic animated adventure for an adult crowd. It’s a throwback to the 70s and 80s when animated movies weren’t always made for kids. The Spine of Night uses the freedom of animation to tell a sprawling and violent story of an ancient power struggle between natives of a forest and the growing forces of power hungry conquerors more interested in subjugating the masses than in creating a future for society.
Movie Review: 'Triple Threat'
The new millennial musical, Triple Threat is debuting at Cinequest and is likely to delight those that give it a chance and don’t stop at the words ‘millennial musical.’ The much maligned millennial generation is now of an age of introspection and they are beginning to examine their lives as Gen-X’ers like myself did and the baby boomers before me. And it will happen to you someday to Zoomer, when you start feeling nostalgic and introspective.
Movie Review: 'I'm Fine (Thanks for Asking)
I’m Fine (Thanks for Asking) was co-written, co-directed and stars Kelley Cali as Danny, a woman struggling to keep up in the wake of the death of her husband. Unable to keep up with the mounting bills, Danny finds herself and her daughter, Wes (Wesley Moss), sleeping in a tent on the outskirts of her L.A suburb. In order to protect her daughter, Danny has told Wes they are camping and then moving to a new apartment.
TV Review: 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: Episode 1'
What is the first image we see in the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier? Is it Sam Wilson heroically wielding the shield gifted to him by Captain America at the end of Avengers: Endgame? Is it the awesome sight of The Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes, crushing some baddie with the super strength in his bionic arm? Perhaps it is Sam gliding through the air with his Falcon wings??? Nope, ironing. Literally, it’s Falcon ironing a shirt.
Movie Review: 'Justice League: The Snyder Cut'
Joss Whedon and Warner Brothers really screwed up. There are no two ways about it, trying to turn the D.C Universe into a snarky, bro-ey comedy universe was a bad idea. As much as it pains me to admit it, treating the D.C Cinematic-Comic Book Universe with seriousness and dignity is the right approach. Yes, it’s a silly comic book movie but it works best when you are able to, in a way, treat with respect.
Movie Review: 'Food Club'
Food Club is a movie about desire, specifically the ways in which desire never goes away. Regardless of age and experience, desire always remains and the balancing act of having desire versus how realistic such a desire is, is not a math problem anyone wants to have. For instance, an elderly person has a desire to sleep with an attractive and much younger person. Some factor might make that possible but it’s unlikely and the reality of that notion can weigh on a person.
The History of Play-Doh is the History of American Capitalism
I have a fascination with the history of products and companies. I find that you can learn a lot about American history and the history of capitalism by collecting random facts about ancient products that have thrived for decades. One such product is Play-Doh, the children’s colorful clay product that nearly every child in America has fashioned into various shapes for decades. Where did Play-Doh come from? I happen to know the answer for some reason.
