When tragedy strikes, how a family deals with the ordeal can make or break them forever.
The new indie film “Bring Me An Avocado” from writer/director Maria Mealla, explores how a family and close friends deal with a mugging gone wrong that leaves a young mother in a coma.
It recently premiered at Cinequest, tying for the ‘Audience Award’ and earning praise for the performances. One of the stand-outs in the film is actress Molly Ratermann, who brought authenticity as the grieving but well intentioned sister who steps in to give the children a...
In 2018, the classic Disney film Mary Poppins got a sequel called Mary Poppins Returns. I have such strong feelings on this film that I felt like sharing how I felt in a full review.

Thankfully, Mary Poppins arrives and teaches the family how to deal with their family loss in a respectable and meaningful away.

2018 had some really good films that are worth talking, so this list is about my personal favorite films of the year. Two honorable mentions go out to the direct to DVD animated film Batman: Gotham by Gaslight and the Aardman film Early Man.
10. Sherlock Gnomes
Sherlock Gnomes is an animated sequel to 2011's Gnomeo and Juliet. I like the 2011 film, but I like this film more. That's thanks to Johnny Depp who shows off his voice acting skills as the title character. The film also has my favorite actress, Emily Blunt. Hearing two of my favorite celebrities in the same...
The Last Airbender is a 2010 action film that was based on a beloved show of the same name. The film got really bad reviews, but I actually really liked the film.
I only saw clips of the animated show before watching the live action film so I'm judging this film by itself instead of comparing it to the show. I still haven't watched any full episodes, but I did enough research to understand the plot and characters.
The film focuses on Aang who's the avatar. He's discovered by a duo of siblings, Katara and Sokka, who become his friends. It's up to them to save the...
It’s 1977 and four college friends who parted ways years ago have reunited for what’s supposed to be a raucous bachelor party. Instead, time has brought a few changes and they find themselves on a treasure hunt down Kentucky’s bluegrass bourbon trail. The story starts simple and slowly unfolds into a twisted maze of greed, guilt and murder.
This is “Bullitt County” -- the new indie film currently in limited theaters by AMC Independent and set to launch on VOD/DVD in early 2019.

It was a hometown welcome for Hollywood-based actress Tammy Kaitz who went back to Denver to shoot the new comedy feature film, “Man Camp.”
Tammy was lured back to Colorado by the role of Theresa, a smart and sassy mother of three grown children who catch their mom off-guard at their family cabin with her secret fiancé, portrayed by Pete Gardner of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” fame. Her sons decide to put their mom’s new beau to the test to see if he’s good enough to join their Mann family.
THIS IS A REPOST OF AN ARTICLE THAT I ALREADY WROTE ON A DIFFERENT CLUB
This is a film that has been out for a while but I'm just now getting around to doing a full article review of it because I've been really busy, stressed, and emotionally drained for a while and all of that has been keeping me from reviewing it. This musical was a big deal when the trailers came out and when the movie finally came out for various reasons. It was Zac Efron's first musical movie since his days in High School Musical and Hairspray, it had freaking Hugh Jackman who always...
New Yorkers love a good pizza. It’s a classic taste of the city -- and so are the owners of the local pizzeria shops. But, what happens when you get a well-intentioned younger generation moving into the neighborhood and looking for a change?
This culture clash is the subject of the indie short film “The Kids Menu,” pitting a young mother (Nyle Lynn) on a mission to get a kids-friendly menu against a steadfast, traditional pizzeria owner ("Soprano's" favorite Vincent Pastore).
