The Favourite Theatrical Review

Here we go again, another English Period Piece. This one is about Queen Anne and it's thinly disguised as a cynical comedy of royal manners. In reality, it's a nasty, vicious, profane, royal story about two women and their devious plotting and scheming against each other, to become the favorite confidant to the Queen. Take confidant, to mean lover;... Read More

Imagine what Earth would be like in a post-apocalyptic world.  What if nuclear explosions hit multiple continents in a span of 60 minutes?  What would be left?  How would the world rebuild?  What would that look like?  Would it disintegrate into a dystopian society?  Mortal Engines, the new film based on the Phillip Re...

This month the comic book world was dealt a heavy blow when we lost a legend, the "Godfather of Superheroes", Mr. Stan Lee.  He created so many incredible characters that have endeared and changed over time.  I can think of no more fitting tribute to his legacy than Marvel Studios' latest animated feature, Spider-Man: Into the S...

There's any number of good reasons why we go to movies. Why we plunk down our hard earned money, sit in a dark theater away from the world, and watch something unveil itself on the big screen in front of us. One thing I know for sure, I think I know for sure, is that we don't go to movies to be made further depressed than the world we live in is al... Read More

Being royalty is never an easy lot in life but more so when you are a queen in the sixteenth century.  It's even more difficult when everyone is out to steal your throne, including a neighboring queen during an incredibly tumultuous time in your own country.  Mary, Queen of Scots, is that noblewoman.  Having become queen at a mer...

Six years ago we fell in love with video game characters Wreck-It Ralph (John C. Reilly; Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman; A Million Ways to Die in the West).  These two worked their way into our hearts and stayed there.  We routed for them despite their "glitches" and were so happy whe...

The old saying goes… you can pick your friends and you can pick your nose but you can't pick your family?  But what if you could?  Well for some people that is exactly what happens.  On average there are over 400,000 children in foster care each year and of the 135,000 children are adopted each year, 59% come from the fost...

J.K.Rowling couldn't have imagined the phenomenon she created when she originally spun a story about a magical world and a boy wizard.  Like so many of the comic book superheroes, Harry Potter has become its own universe with avid fans of all ages worldwide.  When the eight films ended there was a certain sadness to see it all come to...

She was a talented writer. She had compassion and conviction.  The combination made her words powerful and she became one of the most respected war correspondents in the world.  That compassion and Conviction are also likely what got her killed.  Running into war zones while others ran away, she told their stories… the soldier...

In 1957 Random House published Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  It told the story of a green, furry creature who hated Christmas - can you believe that!?!  Over the past sixty-one years, it has been made into several movies both animated and live-action.  This holiday season Illuminations has taken on the challenge with it...
