Movie Review: Battle of the Sexes (2017)

It’s probably safe to say, those who remember the explosive tennis court confrontation between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs were either exhilarated or exhausted by the gender-clashing sporting event dubbed the “battle of the sexes.” The mega-match, after all, forced the nation to take sides in defense of their gender pride. But what was…

Movie Review: Despicable Me 3 (2017)

It’s a well-known fact that most third installments of film franchises do not rise to the level of the first (and often the second). Now, these examples are subjective, of course, but I present as evidence the following pictures: “Rocky III,” “Superman III,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the…

Movie Review: The Big Short (2015)

When everything in your life is looking rosy, there is always someone who will tell you that your happiness is on shaky ground.

Movie Trailer: Minions (2015)

As the sly penguins have outgrown their “Madagascar” roots so have the lovable minions of “Despicable Me.” Taking place before the days of Gru (although it may end with his being involved), the Twinkie-shaped, mumbling servants are getting their own movie aptly titled Minions to go on a comical adventure to search for an evil…

Movie Trailer: Foxcatcher (2014)

The makeup may not look the best, but the early buzz says the acting by the three main players is in Sony Pictures’ biographical drama, Foxcatcher. Based on a true story, it chronicles the highs and the very lows of the relationship between brothers and Olympic Wrestling Champions Mark and Dave Schultz (Channing Tatum and…
