“Between Us”: Ten Movies to see in January

I know, January is usually a real dumping ground for films. That’s normally true, but if you look hard enough, you can find worthwhile titles hitting screens. This year is no exception, as 2017 has a handful of pretty strong movies hitting in its first month. I can personally vouch[...]

“20th Century Women” is a poignant family tale

There are always Academy Award hopefuls that just sort of slip between the cracks. This year, one that isn’t quite getting the love it deserves is 20th Century Women. Initially thought to be a major player, it has seen its star shine a bit less bright than expected, despite being[...]

R.I.P. Carrie Fisher

Some very upsetting news to report today to you all. Carrie Fisher, the actress and writer who first captured a galaxy of hearts with her turn as Princess Lea in the Star Wars franchise, has passed away. She was 60 years old. Fisher had been fighting for her life ever[...]

Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night” seeks to further cement his A-list director status

Oscar qualifying runs are a funny thing. Sometimes, they enhance a film’s stature and chance at awards love. Other times, they wind up creating unrealistic expectations and hurting more than they help. That seems to be the case with Ben Affleck’s fourth film behind the camera, the period gangster tale[...]
