It was a true wonder when Warner Bros. Animation Group (WAG), along with a number of other assisting units, announced its extraordinary Lego Movie in 2014. Winning 73 awards since its release, Lego’s film franchise has captured the hearts of millions, one colorful brick at a time. Then, in 2017,...
Over the weekend I revisited a 2011 film that captivated the world almost a decade ago. Nominated for Academy Awards, Oscars, Golden Globes and BAFTA’s, War Horse went on to win 17 titles for itself. If you haven’t seen it, I highly suggest you do – it’ll captivate you from beginning to end. There’...
Ever since I was a little girl, I have absolutely loved dogs. I was around nine years old when I adopted my first dog, a miniature toy poodle named Spike (it’s hilarious, isn’t it?). He was white and just little enough that a nine-year-old could pick him up comfortably, and he was my gift from God...
Anyone else sick of the Patriots winning the sparkly Lombardi trophy? Like the many millions of Americans who are actually quite tired of seeing the Patriots go to the Super Bowl, I was rooting for the Rams on Sunday during the LIII. I even watched the last playoff game, where I rooted for any...
All this cold, flurries, and “polar vortex” talk has successfully kept me huddled inside like a hibernating bear; snuggled up in sweatshirts and drinking a variety of teas, cocoas, and coffees, thanks to my trusty Keurig. If you’re anything like me, this week has not been the most fun time for you...
In 1967, Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke embarked on an adventure in moviemaking history that would capture hearts and audiences far and wide in “Mary Poppins,” which is perhaps one of Disney’s most beloved, live-action musicals. Set in turn of century London, “Mary Poppins” follows Jane and...
If you ask anyone who knows anything about yours truly, they’d probably give you one of three answers: firstly, that I’ve got a loud and colorful personality; two, that I am 100% in love with Jesus; and three, that I was born to write. A runner up answer would be that I have some of the most unruly...
I’ve mentioned before that if I were pressed to choose a western to watch, it’d be a Clint Eastwood one – specifically, The Outlaw Josey Wales. What that says about me as a person, I haven’t quite figured out yet. Anyway, back to my point – with a renown acting and directing repertoire, it’s no...
I know this week was supposed to be a movie review, but the christening of a new year, in a way, demands a redetermination of focus. That in mind, we’ll resume reviewing a movie next week, as I’ll fill this week’s page space with an end of the year muse. Having holidays on a Tuesday can make the...
By the time many of you will read this, Christmas will have wrapped up like a present with a nice little bow on top. Or, if you’re like me, holiday plans stretch all the way into the New Year for many of us, and you’ve got another few parties on your calendar, yet. I am pleased and encouraged in...
