Review: ‘SONGWRITER’ gives birth to Ed Sheeran’s best album yet.

I feel like if you don’t like Ed Sheeran‘s music you may be a bit of a sociopath.

In the new doc by Murray Cummings, Songwriter, we get to go behind the magical creativity that becomes an Ed Read More →

Fantasia International Film Festival review: ‘THE WITCH IN THE WINDOW’ takes its place among the classics.

The Witch in the Window has a classic ghost story feel. Anchored by a local legend, the film’s uniqueness is amped up by the fact that the locals can also see the ghost in question.

Tribeca Film Festival Review: ‘Tully’ is the perfect movie to see this weekend.

​ Diablo Cody, Jason Reitman, and Charlize Theron have managed to capture the very essence of what Motherhood feels like on a primal level.

It’s in the film’s specificity that creates a sense of, “Oh, my God, yes. Finally, someone Read More →

Review: ‘LOVE BETWEEN THE COVERS’ makes sex and power synonymous.

As a child, I saw my mother as a voracious reader. Danielle Steel covered our bookshelves end to end in hardcover glory.
