The moment Jennifer Lopez steps on to the stage dressed in dental floss, and smiles and begins her Pole Dancing routine as the patrons of "Move Gentleman's Club" throw hundreds of dollars at her, you know this is going to be the role she'll be remembered for. Not since she and George Clooney tussled in the trunk of a car in "Out... Read More

Every once and awhile a small film comes along that unexpectedly packs a punch to the heart and unarms you with its charm. This film is like that. It's a walking, talking, a riff on a modern Mark Twain style adventure tale, that adds so many more layers to what's expected, you'll find yourself moved emotionally by its evolving storyline...

FACT: Of all the animal species in the world, the one we humans are closest to and have formed the most lasting relationship with is the dog. It's a relationship that started over 100,000 years ago, just about as long as we've trod this earth, and may actually be responsible for our survival as a species. FACT: It's known that when humans pet ...

Once upon a time I actually thought great actors and great acting could make any film work. Then, I grew up and figured out that only a great story can make a film great, no matter how good the actors in it may be. Without a compelling script that captures the audience from the start and continues to hold them through to the end, all you're left wi... Read More

What can you say about a movie that tries to totally capture the formative years of a ROCK GOD?A film that covers his childhood (I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues), his partnership (Daniel), his rise to fame (Honky Cat), his fame (Pinball Wizard), his relationships (Don't Go Breakin' My Heart), his addictions (Crocodile Rock), h...

The very first "Godzilla, King of the Monsters" movie I ever saw was the 1956 version shot on film in Black & White, and it starred of all people, Raymond Burr (Perry Mason). I watched it when I was about 7 years old on late night television decades after it was made and thought that a 400-foot tall dinosaur, awoken from undersea hibe... Read More

Let's start by saying; if you're a John Wick fan, you won't be disappointed by this latest installment of the franchise. The same goes for Keanu Reeves fans, Halle Berry fans, Action Movie fans, and just plain well-made Pop Movie fans.Right from the very first film, you could tell this opus was always meant to be a franchise; the type of movie seri...

"In a hole in the ground"…J.R.R. Tolkien wrote, and with those immortal words began the creation of a place known as Middle Earth, a mythological land where Hobbits dwell. "The Hobbit" was published in 1937 and received tremendous critical acclaim. It has been read, taught, admired, loved, and copied ever since.It spawned... Read More

I don't know what this film about senior citizens in a retirement community is trying to be, and I don't think it knows either. Is it a comedy, a drama, a tale of female bonding through sports, or is it just about the cattiness of women? Maybe it's trying to be all those things at once, and perhaps that's why it doesn't work for me. Trying to be to... Read More

I have always found films about India to be fascinating. Probably because India is a place of mystery, magic, philosophy, and hidden secrets. A place so big and filled with so many people that you get the feeling that anything could happen at any moment; and it did in the most terrifying way in 2008. That's when the members of the "Lashkar-e-T... Read More
