The Men Who Became Batman

Since Batman is one of the most popular superheroes, if not THE most popular, he is also the hardest to get “right” when transferred from the paper page to the big screen. Just as his personality has changed over the years, so does the audience’s expectations. Those who grew up with the Batman TV series expect “their” Batman to resemble Adam West while others born a decade later expect Batman to look more like Michael Keaton. So, it goes without saying that Robert Pattinson, who will play the caped crusader in the upcoming film, The Batman in 2022, has some big boots to fill. Read More>>>

Tim Allen Will Appear in New ‘Santa Clause’ Series

Even though we are now in January, we are still talking about Santa Claus, or rather, Tim Allen and Disney’s Santa Clause franchise. On Friday, Disney announced that the Home Improvement star and “Disney Legend” will again don that famous red suit one more time for an upcoming Disney+ limited series. Read More>>>

Encanto

Encanto

It’s hard to believe, but this year Walt Disney Animation Studios releases its 60th full-length animated film, and what a celebration this is. The beautiful visuals, toe-tapping music, fantastical characters and important messages about family, Encanto is one of the best films that I have seen in a long time. Dare I say that I think it has Oscar potential? Read More >>>

The Last Duel

Based on true events that happened way back in 14th century France, The Last Duel is indeed about the last trial by combat held in France. But despite what is shown in the trailers for the film, this isn’t much of an action picture and the actual duel doesn’t occur until much later in the two and a half hour screening time. Instead, this is very well-made movie that not only serves as a history lesson but also a lesson in morality as well. And sadly, as much as our world has changed since then, some things remain the same. Read More >>>

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

With the exception of the 2016 failed reboot, the Ghostbusters franchise is like a family business. Many of the original cast members are still involved and Ivan Reitman, who directed the 1983 original and its sequel passed the mantle down to his son, Jason (while still staying on as the film’s producer) for the third movie. And Ghostbusters: Afterlife is not only filled with Easter eggs and callbacks to the first two films, but it is also a loving tribute to Harold Ramis. Even one of the themes of this new outing is about family. Read More >>>

West Side Story

Now 60 years later, with Steven Spielberg daring to remake this classic film, the pressure is on. And this time, the entire cast is singing their own parts. Will it stand up to the original? Yes it does and maybe, given today’s advanced filmmaking and different style of storytelling, it surpasses it. It’s hard to say if this is Spielberg’s greatest work since he’s done so many great films, but you will be seeing his name listed as possible recipients for next year’s Oscars. Read More >>>

Being the Ricardos

The trials shown in Being the Riccardos happened at different times even though the premise of the movie is that they took place during one week of the couple’s life. Desi is accused of cheating on his wife, Lucille is accused of being a communist and the couple announce that they are in the early stages of having a second child together, which they wanted to incorporate into the show. All three of those things threatened to kill I Love Lucy for good. Read More >>>

American Underdog

Based on Warner’s life story and his own words from his own book, All Things Possible, American Underdog comes out on Christmas offering a feel-good sports movie with an excellent cast that will probably appeal to a larger audience, including those who don’t attend church. Perhaps not wanting to preach to only the choir, this faith-based tale is the least overtly “religious” of all of the duo’s works. Even so, this story shares a story of hope, redemption and the fulfilling of dreams of an unlikely hero. Read More >>>
