When I tell you I haven't laughed this hard in a minute...I do not exaggerate!!!! This is Melissa McCarthy's funniest film to date. Written alongside her husband Ben Falcone (who has a cameo as a Uber driver), Life Of The Party is witty realism at it best.Read More
A few years ago, I attended a live-taping of "The Odd Couple" in which the creator Gary Marshall loved to interact with the audience during taping breaks. He shared tale after tale of all the now famous people he discovered from Julia Roberts to Henry Winkler to Robin Williams. Williams had just passed a few weeks before and Marshall gleefully spoke of how Williams' character of Mork was born on "Happy Days" because his son wanted to see a martian on the show. Mork from Ork was only the beginning for the shooting comet we knew as Robin Williams.Read More
The old adage - "the more things change...the more they stay the same" have never been more true than during the 21st century.

It's about bringing attention to the cruelty of animals in slaughter houses and in this case, that bond is unbreakable for Okja and her loyal, beloved caretaker Mija (An Seo Hyun).Read More
Spidey is back and with a new best friend...Tony Stark! That's right Robert Downey, Jr. aka Ironman is a mentor for the young Peter Parker, who is trying to figure out how to make good use of his special gifts. The last time we saw theses two in the Avengers flick, there were rumblings that this relationship would be on the horizon. Not to mention that we had a teaser of our current Wonder Woman - Gal Godot as well.Read More
When I tell you that this is the best action movie I've seen in awhile...I do not exaggerate! The car stunts in this flick make the Fast and Furious franchise look like a movie about bumper cars.
From the first frame to the last, I was riveted by the acting, stunts and overall story line. It sort of has a little Godfather quality in the respect of "...every time I try to get out...they pull me back in."Read More
