TweetWe all know that after 76 years, Wonder Woman is wonderful. But after seeing this movie, she is still wonderful thanks the direction of Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot, who embodies everything about the female superhero as much as Lynda Carter did – and still do – on the small screen four decades ago.  In other words, “Wonder Woman” was not only the exception of last year’s “Batman v. Superman”, but the film and character is indeed the true dawn of justice in the DC Cinematic World. Born on ParadiseRead More

Review: “Baywatch” Movie is a Risque, Rowdy Romp

TweetI went to an advance screening of the new “Baywatch” movie at the MJR Troy Grand Digital Cinema 16 on Tuesday night and had a good time. Ever since I moved to L.A. for a year in 1980, I’ve been in love with the Pacific Ocean. It was love at first sight. We were both emotionally available.

Tweet Part of the legend of Batman is that he’s the world’s greatest detective.  Another part of the legend is that Batman is more than a symbol as well as a mask.  What else?  The legend of Batman was inspired by two legendary masked crime-fighters: Zorro, the Fox who marked his sword of justice for all as the original Caped Crusader, and the Shadow, the original Dark Knight who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of all men. While he has been considered to be an urban myth, BatmanRead More

Movie Review: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2’ has heart, humor, and action

Now comes “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2”, and we’re ‘Hooked on a Feeling’ once more with Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon and Baby Groot (voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel) … along with references ofRead More
