Where the other three films were released during the weeks…"Chevalier: Biopic Rights A Historical Wrong"

Peter Pan & Wendy, now on Disney+, is the latest live-action reimagining of a classic Walt Disney Animation Studios film, 1953’s Peter Pan. Disney reimaginings of animated classics come in two forms: a theatrical release or Disney+. When a film goes straight to Disney+, there are some lesser expectations because it tells me they don’t think it could be a box office hit. Disney has both Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3 and The Little…"Peter Pan & Wendy Elevates Heroines In Live-Action Reimagining"

Never Stop Dreaming: The Life and Legacy of Shimon Peres is a biographical documentary of one of Israel’s greatest leaders. I’m several months late to watching the documentary but I decided to do so in honor of Israel’s 75th birthday on 5 Iyar, which in the Jewish calendar is known as Yom Ha’atzmaut. If you’re familiar with Shimon Peres, there’s a chance that you probably won’t learn anything new. Regardless, George Clooney’s narration and Peres’…"Never Stop Dreaming: The Life and Legacy of Shimon Peres"
