“Joy,” A Triumphant Journey

HOLLYWOOD—It seems every time director David O. Russell and actress Jennifer Lawrence team up the duo create magic. They first worked together in the dramedy “Silver Linings Playbook” and in 2013 worked on “American Hustle.” Lawrence was sensational in “Silver Linings Playbook,” and I thought she was the best thing in the drama “American Hustle.” Sorry, I was not...

HOLLYWOOD—The awards season has officially kicked off, the first of 2016 being the People Choice Awards which were held on Wednesday, January 6.

Tom Hardy Delivers, “Legend” Not So Much

HOLLYWOOD—Portraying dual roles in a movie is no easy feat for an actor or actress in Hollywood. It can be done, but it requires the smallest nuances of characteristics to convey to the viewer that two independent characters exist even though doubles are being seen on the screen.

“The Hateful Eight,” One Hell Of A Fun-Ride

HOLLYWOOD—Quentin Tarantino, what can I say about this man. He doesn’t make movies that often, but when he does they are always the buzz of the town. I loved “Kill Bill Volume 1” and I thought “Kill Bill Volume 2” was even better. “Inglorious Basterds” was a revelation and frankly “Django Unchained” was unlike anything audiences ever saw on...
