Thoughts on Star Wars before seeing The Force Awakens


image

Star Wars is one of those things that have always been there for me. No matter how tough life gets, you can always take a break and visit the galaxy that only exists a long time ago and is far, far away.
Star Wars has gone from movie phenomenon to cultural institution and right now, it seems like it always will be. Maybe the sequel trilogy will alter its status one way or another, but in this moment, the anticipation is palpable.
And by all that, I mean this: the force will be with you – always.

Cruz Christmas Classics collapses my colon

This offends both Christians and comedy fans by politicizing a high holy day and doing so in such an unfunny manner.

Merry Matrimony movie review

You think they end up together by the end of the film?

So… Yeah, Merry Matrimony is not a Christmas movie. Not really. This movie could take place during any holiday and it’d still be a RomCom without the Com.  it could just as easily be called Labor Day Love and you’d barely have to change anything.

Window Wonderland movie review


Window Wonderland

Like virtually every movie produced by the Hallmark Channel, Window Wonderland has the usual problems:  by the numbers RomCom, no surprises.  Yet, this movie is a bit more than the sum of its parts. Read the rest of this entry

Which wrapping paper should I use?


This was a difficult decision.

Republicans are Master Debaters (Round 5)

See what I did there?

CNN brought the thirteen (yes, there is still an unwieldy baker’s dozen) Republican Presidential Candidates to Las Vegas last night for the fifth debate in an effort to give Chris Christie an up close view at profitable casinos. Here’s what went down. Read the rest of this entry

Charming Christmas movie review


charming-christmas

It’s all new! (Except for the story.)

It’s Charming Christmas, new for 2015! Three women! One dress! One story you’ll barely be able to remember five minutes after you’ve finished watching it!  Read the rest of this entry

A Very Murray Christmas has heart but no hop


A-Very-Murray-Christmas

It’s not often that one comes across something like A Very Murray Christmas.  It’s not terrible, it’s not great – it’s a disappointment, but I’m not sorry I watched it…  I wouldn’t even call it an oddity of mediocrity, because it’s not necessarily mediocre.  It just kind of… is.

12 Gifts of Christmas movie review


12-Gifts-of-Christmas-movie-review

“She has a gift… for finding the right gift.”  Which makes, sense, because she’s a painter and he’s in advertising, so… wait, that doesn’t make any sense at all!  Such is the plight of 12 Gifts of Christmas.  (Not to be confused with A Gift Wrapped Christmas).  Read the rest of this entry

West 50th St is where Christmas lives

Walking east on West 50th Street in New York City is a veritable deluge of Christmas.  There is no avoiding it.  Read the rest of this entry

A Christmas Carol (1999) movie review


a-christmas-carol-spirit-of-christmas-past

Admittedly, the design of the Spirit of Christmas Past is as weird as the Spirit of Christmas Future is cheap.

I’m sure you’ve seen A Christmas Carol before, but Patrick Stewart as Scrooge is not to be missed.  Read the rest of this entry

A Christmas Detour movie review


A-Christmas-Detour

It’s a movie as insincere as this green screen publicity photo, and more than that, it’s a Volcano/Dante’s Peak situation as this is exact same movie as Lifetime’s The Flight Before Christmas (both movies are new this year).  I give you HIV victim hating Candace Cameron Bure’s A Christmas Detour.  Read the rest of this entry
