Published by:

He’s Gonna Wreck-It, Again!

It’s taken 6 years for them to return, but Wreck-It Ralph (John C.

THE FRONT RUNNER review

Published by:

Gary Hart Was Going to be President. Instead He Changed American Politics Forever.

I was not alive in 1988, nor was I familiar with Gary Hart and his story; so going-into “The Front Runner” I had no preconceived notions or ideas.  The film opens in 1984, Hart (Hugh Jackman) is about to concede his Democratic Presidential Candidate Election to then-Vice President Walter Mondale.  Four years later, he is determined to run for our Country’s highest office and, this time, he is the clear front runner for the Democratic nomination.  Not only are his ideas and plans progressive, but his Continue reading

OVERLORD review

Published by:

Deutsch-Gotisch Regular

The Nazi’s Had a Deep, Dark Secret

High above the skies of Normandy, “Overlord” opens as the assault of D-Day is only hours away.  A plane full of nervous, terrified paratroopers anxiously-await their inevitable fates.  Reminiscent of previous WWII films, the opening is harrowingly-intense and suspenseful; leaving you to feel the fear of the soldiers and every bang and shake Continue reading
