It’s pretty rare that I get to review a movie before it hits theatres, but I suppose that’s what happens when you’re fortunate enough for advanced screenings. Me, being one of those fortunate souls, attended a special screening of Bumblebee, the Transformers film which is slated to release on...
I can imagine there’s a lot of people out there who read my column and think I’m some variety of nuts. And I’m ok with that. I love cashews and almonds! As the holiday season comes around to salute the swiftly departing 2018 year, I listen to the Christmas carols hit the radios like a typhoon. The...
Being a film enthusiast always comes with that one, inevitable question that I, personally, always hate answering. It comes from someone of every avenue in the business of enjoyment: the genuinely curious, the one-upper, the just-looking-for-a-good-recommendation, or the know-it-all. It’s just a...
I had every intention of cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year with my mom. However, intentions don’t necessarily translate into definite action, and on the morning of last Thursday, I can say with some embarrassment that this sleeping beauty didn’t get herself out of bed until well after 9:30 a.m...

I’ll be the first to say it, without hesitancy – I don’t like winter. I say all the time that if I could afford it, I’d be a snowbird. I am one of those Minnesotans that can just barely get through winter, and slogs through the cold months with layers upon layers beneath a puffy coat, still...
When “First Man,” starring Ryan Gosling, was announced late last year as a film that would rocket onto screens in 2018, I was more than excited. Space films are always super engaging and very, very thrilling – and if they’re based on a true story? You know it’ll be amazing then! Swiftly falling in...
