NEW ONGOING SERIES! “Space Aces” – Part One: Cosmo is a Martian with the skills of a warrior and a heart of gold. He’s the leader of his M.A.R.S. unit that explores the solar system. What was meant to be a routine scouting mission turns into a much larger adventure Cosmo and his friends stumble upon a panicked human and encounter some ferocious foes! I’m a huge fan of what Archie Comics are doing with all their properties with modern takes on The Jetsons, Flinstones, Archie, and Scooby-Doo. Cosmo is one of those properties that they’ve had for over 50...



In Disney•Pixar’s extraordinary adventure, a boy who dreams of becoming a great musician embarks on a journey to uncover the mysteries behind his ancestor’s stories and traditions. Coco was missing something and I can’t really put my finger on it. It had a story that flowed pretty well and the animation was top notch, but I didn’t feel the emotional punch that normally comes with Pixar films.


Murder By Death

The world’s greatest detectives have been invited to dinner. But when murder is on the menu, who will make it to dessert? You are cordially invited to join an all-star cast featuring Peter Sellers, David Niven, Peter Falk, James Coco, Elsa Lanchester, Maggie Smith, Alec Guinness, Eileen Brennan, Nancy Walker, James Cromwell and Estelle Winwood for Neil Simon’s hilarious murder-mystery spoof MURDER BY DEATH. The isolated mansion of eccentric millionaire Lionel Twain (celebrated author Truman Capote in a Golden Globe(r) -nominated performance) is the setting for the twisted puzzler. There’s some casual racism going on here that I’m weirded out...


The Cloverfield Paradox

Like nearly every other JJ film, this is a gorgeous mess with a story that just barely entertains. Skippable unless you’re a Clovy fan, but even then this isn’t going to impress very much.

Low Blow from The Atlantic

Spencer Kornhaber of The Atlantic has a completely tone deaf piece in which he protests entirely too much about Justin Timberlake’s nearly perfect Superbowl Halftime show: So why point it out? to show that you can’t make everyone happy. He did a very touching tribute to a great artist (Prince) who had a pretty unfortunately rocky and regrettable Halftime show of his own and some how JT a thief of “black swagger”? I expected more from The Atlantic 🙁


All The Way

Bryan Cranston stars in a riveting look at the formidable challenges and demons faced by President Lyndon Johnson in his tumultuous first year in office – from his “accidental” ascension to the presidency in November 1963, to his relentless fight to win passage of a landmark Civil Rights Bill with the election of 1964 looming. Bryan Cranston does a great LBJ and I Anthony Mackie had a great performance as Martin Luther King Jr. It was entertaining to see some behind the scenes of how the Executive and Legislative branches of the government were behaving at the time.


Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle

Four teenagers in detention discover an old video console with a game they’ve never heard of. When they decide to play, they are immediately sucked into the jungle world of Jumanji in the bodies of their avatars (Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan). They’ll have to complete the adventure of their lives filled with fun, thrills and danger or be stuck in the game forever! Fantastic third entry in the franchise (yes I count Zathura), I’m happy with what happened here, even Karen Gillian’s ridiculous cut off shorts and leather bikini top. Great to see Bobby Cannavale...
