‘Focus’ is an entertaining but hardly memorable ‘rom-con’

‘Focus’ is an entertaining but hardly memorable ‘rom-con’

Focus is now playing in 3,323 theaters nationwide. It is rated ‘R’ for language, some sexual content and brief violence. It is one hour and forty-four minutes long. For most famous and established actors, the name describes the movie better than the title. A Jackie Chan movie is very different from a Bruce Willis movie, [...]

Giuliani’s talk on Obama’s patriotism draws a firestorm

“I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the President loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.” Those comments by former New York City [...]

LTTE–Who cares how white the Oscars are this year?

LTTE–Who cares how white the Oscars are this year?

So this is how far we’ve come. Just surfing the net, and I see that “civil rights activists” plan on protesting outside the Oscars this year. Apparently every one of the 20 acting nominees this year is white for the first time since like 1998. Oh, the humanity. I also see that according to outlets [...]

‘HTTM 2,’ ‘McFarland’ and ‘The DUFF’ quick reviews

24 hours after the NBA trade deadline, the dust settles

This is one of those articles you wait until the next day to write. The NBA trading deadline came with a tremendous flurry of activity yesterday as 11 trades were made before the deadline. Very few people rumored to be going somewhere didn’t get traded, the only major exceptions probably being Brook Lopez of the [...]

Trailer Tuesday: ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.,’ ‘Poltergeist’

A lot of major trailers have come out in the last couple of weeks as the summer movie season approaches. The seven here are all fairly eagerly-anticipated movies due to come out in 2015. Without any more ado… Crimson Peak is a horror movie from Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) that is due [...]
