Review: Another Odd Couple

The Goodbye Girl: Definitely one of the playwright’s best movies of the decade, because it has tons of charm to go along with the funny dialogue.

Review: Holly’s Game

Breakfast at Tiffany’s: As a romance, the ingredients are hard to beat, with undeniably lovely New York flavor.

Life is Too Short Not to Live Like Anthony Bourdain

This is how I want to live, as a citizen of the world, curious of new impressions, not some nationalist sad sack who hates every foreigner they see.

McQueen: Nicely designed, with stylish, evocative use of skulls, Alexander McQueen’s trademark.

Quick Take: Volcanic Mayhem

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: So slick it makes us almost forget there really are no new ideas here.


Review: Family = Enemy

Whitney: So much has been crammed into the movie, but its poignant moments really stand out.
