Brooklyn movie

BROOKLYN is a beautiful and moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother’s home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh, […]

Steve Jobs – Movie

A somewhat entertaining movie about a high tech CEO by the name of Steve Jobs. I would not call it a bio-pic about Steve Jobs. This is an artistic impression of a man, not necessarily from real conversations of Steve Jobs. The screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, was not your typical Sorkin structure as in The Social Network, […]

Pippin The Musical

Diane Paulus’ reworked version of the musical “Pippin” is a visually appealing production that combines Cirque du Soleil/Big Top inspired theatrics along side Bob Fosse flavored choreography by Chet Walker. Originally directed and choreographed by the great Bob Fosse, Diane Paulus’ version won 4 Tony’s in 2013 including Best Musical Revival. Pippin is a play […]

It’s a fairy tale for adults. The musical has a steady pace, with no dull moments, which makes it easy to follow the story. Wicked: […]

Pixels

Just plain silly. Pixels is a typical summer popcorn movie, it fills you up with empty calories. It fits well with all the live action cartoon movies that the big studios release these days. This movie attempts to show young people that their parents were cool when they were teenagers. The story is about aliens […]

Trainwreck

Amy Schumer lights up the screen in this Judd Apatow dark comedy Trainwreck, as the foul mouthed, hard partying, bullying, self-destructive, narcissistic, Amy. The men in this movie appear to be sensitive, communicate, and caring, while, Amy appears to be drunk or stoned throughout. She cares less about anybody’s feelings, and has no apologies for her actions as […]

Minions

Not appropriate for children under five years old, because of loud explosions and sounds. For those who want to know the backstory of where Minions come from the “Minions” movie is the origin story. Evolving from single-celled yellow organisms at the dawn of time, Minions live to serve, but find themselves working for a continual series […]
