Frye promo poster

We watched the Netflix produced Fyre Fest documentary over the weekend. I remember the blow up on the social media when guests started posting pictures of the grounds and accommodations as they arrived. I had zero awareness of the event prior to the social media explosion in 2017 when it …

Roman Holiday Poster

Audrey Hepburn is beautiful, charming, vulnerable, regal, and funny; all at the same time as the Princess of an unnamed European Country that slips out of the embassy for a Ferris Bueller style day off in Rome. It's no wonder she won an Oscar for this role. Gregory Peck is …

We went to the Fred Rogers bio-documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor last night, and it exceeded my expectations in every way.

Scream For Me Sarajevo

A few months ago my weekly email from Pledge Music featured a documentary about Bruce Dickinson's 1994 concert in Sarajevo. I didn't worry too much about what the film was, Bruce was involved so I click the button to support the project. The DVD arrived a couple of weeks ago …
