“I don’t think I’d find myself very interesting” is how Leonore Carol “Lee” Israel responds when a date of hers asks why she doesn’t write about herself. This exchange is wholeheartedly honest but rings tongue-in-cheek given that it is from a scene in a film based off Israel’s popular an...

I want it on the record that I didn’t go into “Hunter Killer” ready to bash it, but I was really left with little choice. I was lucky enough to see an early screening of the film at the lovely AMC River East surrounded by fine folks excited to see the latest Gerard Butler action flick. When I s...

When rumors began to stir that British actor Idris Elba was in line to become the next James Bond in 2015, much of the internet erupted in joy and support with a large amount of optimistic skeptics.

                Full disclosure, there are few things in life I like less than being spooked. So the odds of me watching these recommendations are essentially nonexistent. With that said, I’m what some people may refer to as “a professional” which is exactly why I still did the research to justify these recommend...
