Mini Movie Reviews: ‘Goosebumps,’ ‘Spotlight’ and ‘Bridge of Spies’

On the fence about these movies?  Below are my three mini movie reviews. GOOSEBUMPS:  A perfect family film for the fall season. Lots of scary monsters, and Jack Black as R.L. Stine, author of “Goosebumps”. Jack is surprisingly underplaying his role in my opinion, but your kids will love the monsters coming to life out […]


Movie Review: Brian Wilson’s ‘Love And Mercy’

A somewhat overlooked biographical film from early summer is getting a lot of new buzz lately, and not just because it is now available on home video. “Love And Mercy” is the tortured story of Hawthorne native Brian Wilson, who rose to fame with brothers Carl and Dennis, while still a teenager with the Beach […]

Last night, a founding member of Motown’s greatest female group, the Supremes, the ageless Mary Wilson kicked off the first of many Motown exhibits, Legends Of Motown: Celebrating The Supremes.

‘Love And Mercy’ and Brian Wilson at The Greek

I dived deeply into the history of the LA Pop Music scene this weekend. First I saw the new film Love And Mercy, the complicated story of tortured musical genius Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys. The film jumps back and forth between Brian at his lowest mental paralysis following the untimely drowning death of […]


Movie Review: “San Andreas”

Anyone who has ever lived in California is aware that we are in earthquake country. The most famous of all the earthquake fault systems  is the San Andreas. We in Los Angeles live right on top of this somewhat dormant monster.  Dwayne Johnson is the perfect guy to be the face of this new action film, […]


‘Tomorrowland:’ George Clooney Steps Into The Future

George Clooney has been all over the place promoting his new Disney film. He even handcuffed himself to David Letterman for TWO of Dave’s final shows. It was a funny gag, but is the film really that strong? Many critics don’t think so, although it just may be the # 1 film of the long […]


Letterman Has Left The Building….in Disguise

After 33 years, David Letterman has finally left the building, in disguise. “CBS This Morning” reports a decoy limo was placed behind the Ed Sullivan Theater last night where Letterman normally exits. After his final show however, Dave snuck out thru neighboring Angelo’s Pizza wearing a white jacket, and walked up Broadway amongst the people […]


B.B. King: The Thrill Will Never Be Gone

B.B. King’s eight decade career sadly came to an end yesterday. While driving down the West Coast from Portland two weeks ago, I had heard B.B. was in hospice care. I stopped in Ashland, Oregon at one of my favorite record stores, The Music Coop and picked up two choice CDs of his very early […]
