Review: My Cousin Rachel

I saw the press screening of My Cousin Rachel last night and I can’t quit thinking about this movie. Based on the novel of the same name by Daphne du Maurier, the movie starts out telling us the story of a young Phillip Ashley, played by Sam Calflin. He was raised by his cousin after his parents’ death. As an adult Philip returned to his home after attending school. His cousin because ill and moved to the “sunshine” country to get away from the harsh winters of England. In Italy, he met Rachel. Rachel is beautiful, smart and not necessarily the person you think she is.

Review: Wonder Woman

After years of waiting and many attempts Wonder Woman has finally gotten a big budget movie. After an appearance in the massively lackluster Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice last year, WB/DC finally got itself a hit with a good film. Only took four tries. But hey maybe “fourth time’s a charm” is the new three. What could have been another disappointing disaster ends up being one great comic book movie. From start to finish this is the movie fans have been waiting for.

Thoughts on the Dirty Dancing Remake

By guest writer Emily A. Filmore.

My 11-year-old daughter, Sage, and I watched the 2017 ABC remake of Dirty Dancing. While I think it is a good attempt to revive an old classic, I spent the entire three hours mourning the incomparable Patrick Swayze and comparing the whole casts’ dance skills, the cinematography, and yes, the storyline to my beloved original; she thinks it was a fun, cute movie, and really enjoyed the singing. I was exactly Sage’s age when the original came out, so this was great timing; it was one of the first adult movies I ever watched…and in 1987 me getting to see two people kiss on the lips was quite a racy event! Today, Sage has seen much more than this on network television, so nothing about the movie shocked her.

Review: Baywatch

Let’s face it: The Rock is awesome. And pretty much everything he does is awesome, good or bad. So when it was announced that he was doing the Baywatch movie based on the television show which ran eleven seasons from 1989-2001, and it was getting this 21 Jump Street movie treatment, where they poke fun at it while actually making a movie about it, I was sold. What could have been really terrible ended up being a hilarious and raunchy movie that was very entertaining.

Review: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

Time to get a slice of cherry pie and pour yourself a cup of damn fine coffee (and hot!) This Sunday brings us the long-awaited continuation of the Twin Peaks series, twenty-five (well, twenty-six)(almost) years after the original series ended, leaving us with many, many unanswered questions.

In preparation for the new episodes, Mark Frost has given us The Secret History of Twin Peaks. The murder of Laura Palmer may have focused the world’s attention on Twin Peaks, but the more her mystery unfolded, the more clear it became that this little town’s weirdness goes way back.
