“Doctor Strange” Is A Visual, Narrative Masterpiece

HOLLYWOOD—Rarely, and I mean rarely would I used the word ‘masterpiece’ to describe a movie, but man was I blown away at the multiplex this weekend. I love a good comic book adaptation, but for the most part they are popcorn fun. Not many flicks from that genre make you think or wonder. When I think of genre bending...

“Suicide Squad” Exciting, But Also Flat

HOLLYWOOD—Hmm, what can I say about the comic-book driven, action-adventure “Suicide Squad.” Let’s utilize the term ‘interesting.’ Rather that is a good thing or bad thing is still up for debate and I’ll share why.
