Mama Mia 2! Here we go again, Review: ABBAsolutely delightful--See that film, enjoy the scenes Co-incidences and flashbacks galore dot the story of Mama Mia 2! Here We Go Again, a sure-fire recipé for disaster in so many films. Not here, though. Here, they are never one too many. And linking them all are some delightful songs and dances, in a 114 minute long ode to bittersweet things called life and love. A jukebox romantic comedy it is, but so well executed and integrated that it almo...

Jeff "The Giver" Bridges Remembers Robin Williams

The previous evening, Bridges had learned of the 63-year-old ac...

Happy 77th Birthday Jack Nicholson, It's Been A Wild RIde

The photo here is said to be Anjelica Huston's favorite shot of their glory days together as featured from her collection. by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   When the legend turns 77 on April 22, Jack Nicholson will mark it in his new-found low-key way. But Nicholson's path from New York to Hollywood has been a wild ride. In fact, The Wild Ride (1960), the "B" exploitation racing movie with Georgianna Carter, still holds up. With the dark-haired lothari...

August: Osage County

user
The play-turned-movie August: Osage County follows one family's moral and emotional smack-down in the American Heartland. No one wins, though a shrink could clean up handily. The Westons of Oklahoma sure could use some counseling. And judging by the actors' comments at the film's New York press conference, they too may have some lingering traumas to be worked out from the ordeal of performing this Gothic melodrama.  Meryl Streep, who played the splenetic matriarch, and Ju...

      by Marla Lewin Sandra Bullock continued her remarkable year where she has dominated the box office and been declared the number one top grossing star in the movies today.
