"MARSHALL" (2017) Review




"MARSHALL" (2017) Review

I have a confession. I had no interest in seeing the recent movie, "MARSHALL", when I first heard about it. I thought it would turn out to be one of those solemn biography flicks about some "great man in history" and his struggles to become successful in his endeavors. But when I learned about the movie's plot, I changed my mind and decided to see it. Read more...Collapse )

"BECKY SHARP" (1935) Review

Being something of a film history buff, I have been aware of the 1935 adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray's 1847-48 novel, "Vanity Fair" for a number of years. But I have never been inclined to watch the film, until recently. Read more...Collapse )

"THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD" (2017) Review




"THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD" (2017) Review

It occurred to me that the buddy action film genre has become a dying breed in Hollywood summer blockbusters. I cannot think of the last one that did not feature science-fiction, fantasy or costumed heroes. So, imagine my surprise when Lionsgate released "THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD" during the late summer of 2017. Read more...Collapse )

ADAPTING "WARLEGGAN"

Do many fans of the current adaptation of Winston Graham’s "POLDARK" saga have an unnatural hatred of the character known as Elizabeth Chynoweth Poldark Warleggan? Or do they merely dislike her?

A change that I personally found disturbing? Or was it something else? Read more...Collapse )
