“Spiral” Does Not Inspire New Thrills

HOLLYWOOD—I had seriously high hopes for this latest entry in the “Saw” franchise titled “Spiral.” It is the latest entry in the horror catalogue that if you count this flick, is the ninth entry, only it does not have “Saw” as a moniker.

“Mortal Kombat” Is A Fun Treat!

HOLLYWOOD—Growing up I was quite fond of the video game for the Super Nintendo gaming system, “Mortal Kombat.” It was a game unlike any other that was notable for its fighting style, its violence and its fatalities.

SANTA MONICA—Awards season is finally and I mean finally coming to an end; it has been a major drag, a drag that has extended a little over 2 months longer than what it should normally do.
