“Morbius” Lacks Entertainment Value!

HOLLYWOOD—Here is a piece of advice, just because a character appears in a comic book movie or in a comic book franchise does NOT mean the character needs to have his or her own spinoff people. For those of you not in the know, I’m referring the Marvel flick “Morbius” starring Oscar-winner Jared Leto. Yeah, I should have known...

“Deep Water” Is A Deep Mess!

HOLLYWOOD—I’m not sure what it is, but Ben Affleck does not have good luck on the big screen wherever he appears with an actual love interest. “Gigli” did you see that? I don’t think most of America did. You can now add another movie to the list, “Deep Water” starring Affleck and his former lover Ana de Armas. Affleck...

“The Batman” Is A Dark Piece Of Cinema

HOLLYWOOD—It is dark, it is the iconic superhero film in my opinion who absolutely changed the world of the comic book movie. I am referring to Batman aka Bruce Wayne.

2022 Oscar Predictions

HOLLYWOOD—I am usually excited about the Academy Awards, but for 2022 I don’t feel that much excitement and I quite don’t know why. It could be the pandemic, the unpredictability of awards season or the fact that I have a very strong idea, as I have had in the past about who will walk away with the golden statue...

“Power Of The Dog” Nabs Top BAFTA Awards

HOLLYWOOD—There were two award shows on Sunday, March 13, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts and the Critic’s Choice Awards. Look, I’ve never been a fan of the CTA simply because critics tend to be too opinionated and sometimes are out of touch with the American people. Maybe we will talk more about that ceremony later.
