Movie Review: “BlacKkKlansman”

"BlacKkKlansman" is the most powerful movie of the year. It's based on a book by Ron Stallworth who, in the 1970s, became the first African-American hired by the Colorado Springs police department. One day, he sees an ad in the paper for the Ku Klux Klan, which is...

Reel Spoilers: “MI-6”

I’m back for another Reel Spoilers podcast with Kevin, Joe, and Tom to review “Mission: Impossible - Fallout.” Lots of fun (and spoilers). Listen here, or download to your favorite podcast...

Kayla is a thirteen-year-old girl entering her last week of eighth grade. She's shy, quiet, desperate to be popular, wants to have a boyfriend, doesn't know what that entails, and hasn't dated yet. She's a jumble of pimples, anxiety, insecurities, and is obsessed with...

Movie Review: “Boundaries”

I have a new leader for Worst Movie Of 2018: "Boundaries." It's too bad, because it has a good cast wasted on a horrible script. Vera Farmiga plays a woman who has trouble saying no. Whenever she sees a stray dog or cat, she takes it in. That's certainly...
