The First Attack Ads: Hollywood vs. Upton Sinclair is a short documentary that looks at Hollywood’s fight against the American writer. If you’ve read Scott Eyman’s Lion of Hollywood or Sydney Stern’s The Brothers Mankiewicz, you’ll be in a good position because these books feature some of the history. In short, MGM executives didn’t want to see Upton Sinclair elected governor of California. As such, Louis B. Mayer’s #2 man, Irving Thalberg, created the first…"The First Attack Ads: Hollywood vs. Upton Sinclair"
Looper, the sci-fi thriller written and directed by Rian Johnson, marks the tenth anniversary of its theatrical release in 2012. Rian Johnson certainly knows how to make them–Looper remains one of the most original films of the past decade. By the time that I first saw Looper in 2012, I was already familiar with Johnson’s work on two episodes of Breaking Bad. His third episode, which didn’t air until September 2013 is one of the…"Looper: Rian Johnson’s Sci-Fi Thriller Marks 10 Years"
The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers returns for its second season as the team travels to an intense hockey institute during summer. I know exactly what you’re thinking. Is it still worth watching the show after the departure of Emilio Estevez? The answer is yes. This show has always been about the underdogs and if the first four episodes of season two are any indication, showrunners Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa are sticking to the franchise…"The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers – Season 2"
The Oscar-nominated In Bruges makes its arrival on 4K Ultra HD just a few months shy of the film’s 15th anniversary in early 2023. I was a few years late to discovering the work of writer-director Martin McDonagh. Going into this year’s reunion project, The Banshees of Inisherin, I’d yet to watch the film in which the trio worked together. However, I’ve now rectified it with this black comedy crime thriller, in which the city…"In Bruges Arrives on 4K Ultra HD"

What’s Love Got To Do With It? is a romantic comedy about the different ways people find love while living in a contemporary society. You’ve seen one rom-com, you’ve seen them all. What makes this one feel different is through its approach to the subject. Jemima Khan’s script does a few things here: it tackles documentary filmmaking, dating via apps, and finding a spouse through assisted marriage. But at the end of the day, are…"What’s Love Got To Do With It? – Toronto 2022"
The late Sidney Poitier gets a revealing documentary in a two-hour film directed by Reginald Hudlin and produced by Oprah Winfrey. Unfortunately I missed getting the opportunity to see Sidney during its Toronto premiere screenings. I had one screening on my schedule but one must listen to their body when it needs sleep. In any event, I finally had the chance to sit down and watch ahead of its release on Apple TV+. Leave it…"Sidney: A Revealing Documentary of Sidney Poitier"
