Toy Story 4 – Movie Review

By: Robert Garland This may be the most boring movie review you ever read. Don’t get me wrong, “Toy Story 4” is far from a boring movie. In fact, it packs in so much action that I wondered if it could even reach a satisfactory conclusion in its 100-minute runtime (spoiler alert: of course it […]

“Little”

By Bob Garver The top two movies in the country right now have the exact opposite premise. “Shazam!” is about a young boy who is happy when he turns into an adult. “Little” is about a grown woman who is miserable when she turns into a child. I guess a good companion piece would be […]

“Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch” – A Movie Review

By Bob Garver I am of the boring opinion that the 1966 animated holiday classic “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” is a work of genius and the 2000 live-action take on the same story is an ugly, mean-spirited abomination. Is it any surprise that the new animated film “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch” falls somewhere in […]

Hypocrisy Abounds Over Harvey Weinstein Case

What about the heroic and brave New York Times who published the story? They had the goods on Weinstein since 2004 but the story was killed after Harvey […]
