Do not walk into the Patti Baker theatre expecting to see the film Grease on a stage. RHS Theatre Co’s rendition brings something new and refreshing to the stage. Well, not “new” but new to most who aren’t familiar with any version of Grease beyond the movie. Don’t be disappointed that ...

Although Director Josh Trank has a bad reputation for his work on the newest Fantastic Four movie, a lot of people seem to look over the fact that Trank made an incredible indie teen superhero movie that landed him the job for the reboot. Chronicle (2012) brings a new and exciting take on the super...

All controversy aside, there is no dispute over whether Beauty and the Beast is a phenomenal film or not. With all the pressure on the studio and director Bill Condon’s shoulders to bring to life the only animated film to be nominated for best picture at the academy, they prevailed. The most m...

The essence of New York hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan’s debut record Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) is something that’s fleeting but beautiful, a unique sound, attitude and atmosphere that many artists have tried and failed to replicate, even the Clan themselves. The album’s ripples can be felt across...

Since Beauty and the Beast came out to a smashing debut last weekend, I figure I’d shed some light on the dashing fellow who played the beast, Dan Stevens. Although he doesn’t have the biggest filmography I figured I’d review the movie that put him on the map. The Guest (2014) is a thriller set...

I’m sure all of us remember the flop that was the original screen adaption of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," right? And I’m sure most of us remember being awakened by live action Rodrick Heffley.

A Separation sustains subtlety, from expert restraint, throughout its entire runtime. However, this subtlety speaks volumes about the societal norms and expectations of Iran.

Fracture is unlike any of the courtroom thrillers I’ve ever seen. Directed by Gregory Hoblit, who gave us another incredible courtroom thriller in Primal Fear, which introduced the world to Edward Norton, uses a similar formula with Fracture to again strike success. The movie right off the bat does something...
