The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is back for the start of the fourth season but the show has yet to solve its Jewish caricature problem. Listen, we need to talk. This series is a prime example of why we need Jewish actors being cast in these roles. No amount of acting is going to change the fact that a non-Jewish actor is going to come off as a caricature. People might say “acting is acting” but…"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 4 Review"
Galaxy Quest, the Star Trek send-up, still remains a sci-fi comedy classic as fans across the globe celebrate the 20th anniversary. No list of the all-time best comedies can be complete without Galaxy Quest. To make such a list without this cult classic would be–By Grabthar’s hammer, by the suns of Worvan–illogical to say the least. When I first saw the film, I had never been initiated into the Star Trek universe. A real introduction…"Galaxy Quest: Star Trek Send-Up Is A Classic"
Amazon surprised us all by dropping season 3 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel a few hours earlier but the third season is the best season yet. The series takes us away from the Catskills and on the road with Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan).

Men in Black 2 unfortunately suffers at the core as the sequel just doesn’t quite have the same magic as its predecessor. The first film ends with Agent J (Will Smith) getting a new partner in Agent L. As anyone could probably guess, this was too good to be true. Eventually, we’re going to see Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) again. This is not a matter of if but when. But before he can go…"Men in Black 2 doesn’t have same magic"
As the period comedy returns for a second season on Amazon Prime, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel brings the funny with a superb performance from Rachel Brosnahan. Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) isn’t afraid of telling it like it is. This is never more true than in the season’s second episode. While there men have made the argument that women aren’t funny, Midge turns this idea on its head. In telling the bunt truth–even in a…"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 2 Brings Laughs"
Final Portrait is a character study that takes us into the mind of what an artist goes through as they work to perfect their work. It’s the latest directorial offering from Stanley Tucci. The camera framing is absolutely beautiful with its handheld movements. Through his direction, Tucci makes some wise choices early on to hide the portrait of James Lord (Armie Hammer) even if audiences would beg for even just a glimpse of the master…"Final Portrait: A Character Study"
A sequel to Galaxy Quest has long been gestating in one form or another. The latest development is Paul Scheer being hired to write a television series for Amazon Studios.
