Gnome Appreciation Society

What da Cover Says:  Introducing a major literary talent, The White Tiger offers a story of coruscating wit, blistering suspense, and questionable morality, told by the most volatile, captivating, and utterly inimitable narrator that this millennium has yet seen. Balram Halwai is a complicated man. Servant. Philosopher. Entrepreneur. Murderer. Over the course of seven nights, […]

The soccer isn’t bad in “See You Soon.” But then, it’s not really about soccer. The Saint Petersburg locations are striking in all the most travelogue ways. But the romance at the heart of this Russo-American “Affair to Remember” is tepid bathwater, blase and lacking sparks. This slow-footed melodrama only truly comes to life with […]

Tuesdays with Cory

I’m sorry to report that once again I haven’t been able to get to a theater to see the many movies on my time-sensitive backlog this week – Crawl, Midsommar, Yesterday, The Art of Self-Defense, and of course Spider-Man: Far From Home among them – but what I can talk to my beloved readers about […]

The Avocado

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood comes out in theaters this week (which, hauntingly, is close to the 50th anniversary of the Tate murders).  Pulp Fiction is celebrating its 25th and Ingluorious Basterds is celebrating its tenth. So yes, Avocado, it’s time we talk about Quentin Tarantino. The Simpsons writers caught the zeitgeist of what people in […]

The Quiet Crisis Next Door

A couple of weeks ago, Jessi and I were talking as I was firing up the Frankenkindle. She very graciously sits with Tony a few minutes after each session while he watches a video on this near ancient relic so that I can use the bathroom before starting our drive home. Currently Tony is only […]

Heavy Feather Review

Aerial shot. The sun rises over a city of semicircles. Traffic noises are punctuated by shrieking gulls. The camera pans down, getting closer and closer to the earth until figures emerge on a street split in half by a misted canal. I – Economy Nothing is permanent except for the creation of junk. Bicycles. Umbrellas. […]

Movie CRAWL Reviews The movie Crawl will make you swim for your life because if the storm doesn’t get you they surely will. With its less then thrilling plot line and questionable acting the movie takes a bite out of you in more ways then one. This movie revolves around two people who are trying […]

“The night she moves in with Peter, she’s so happy, so exhilarated, so in love. Later, she will remember a much smaller feeling, a tiny one percent in her gut. And she will remember pushing that feeling aside… Samantha Frayn doesn’t know why Peter Bridges picks her – a nobody with bitten fingernails and a […]

Set The Tape

Pop (culture) will eat itself, and Other Box Office News. Well, folks, it happened.  Disney’s CGI – NOT live-action, they didn’t even go to Africa to shoot the environments and then layer the animated characters over those backdrops like with 2000’s Dinosaur; this was shot on a blue-screen sound-stage in Los Angeles, it is for […]
