    TIMBER BEAST FROM LAZY MAGNOLIA

    TIMBER BEAST FROM LAZY MAGNOLIA // DRINK SLOWLY ON YOUR BACK PORCH I was at a local gas station that I always go to just to buy beer. I only buy beer there because the gas is too expensive, but that’s beside the point. As I was browsing, I saw an end cap with a […]

    MOVIE REVIEW OF ''D-DAY ASSASSINS"

    MOVIE REVIEW OF ”D-DAY ASSASSINS” When the American Film Institute compiled its list of the “100 most thrilling American movies,” they ranked the unforgettable World War II combat extravaganza “The Dirty Dozen” (1967) as their sixty-fifth entry. This outlandish opus concerned twelve condemned U.S. Army soldiers scheduled to hang for their crimes in England. Headquarters […]

  • ”GODZILLA, KING OF THE MONSTERS”

    ''GODZILLA, KING OF THE MONSTERS"

    ”GODZILLA, KING OF THE MONSTERS” “Trick ‘r Treat” director Michael Dougherty’s “Godzilla, The King of the Monsters” (**** OUT OF ****) qualifies as the rare sequel that surpasses its impressive predecessor, “Rogue One” director Garth Edwards’ above-average, larger-than-life “Godzilla” (2014), with Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Elizabeth Olsen. Edwards’ “Godzilla” rebooted the American “Godzilla” franchise […]

  • ”BRIGHTBURN”

    brightburn

    ”BRIGHTBURN” Mash up “Superman” with “The Omen,” and you’ve got the elements of “Hive” director David Yarovesky’s “Brightburn” (**** OUT OF ****), co-starring Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, and newcomer Jackson Dunn.  No, this isn’t your ordinary, standard-issue, run-of-the-mill, superhero ‘origins’ saga, since our hero amounts to an anti-hero.  Nevertheless, “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” scenarists […]

  • ”THE INTRUDER”

    The-Intruder

    ”THE INTRUDER” “Traffik” director Deon Taylor’s “The Intruder” (* OUT OF ****) qualifies as a potboiler.  Webster’s defines a potboiler as “a usually inferior work (as of art or literature) produced chiefly for profit.”  Indeed, this dreadful B-movie about the trials and tribulations of homeowners serves up little more than an inventory of clichés.  The […]

    India Arie

    INDIA.ARIE ASKS BIRMINGHAM TO ‘LISTEN WITH YOUR HEART’ DURING CONCERT Four-time Grammy award winner India.Arie doesn’t do concerts. She does songversations, a delightful mixture of music and dialogue between the artist and the audience. Fans of the R&B songstress might recognize the clever term from her 2013 album and 2017 EP of the same name. […]
