A Star Is Born – Review

Before the 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born”, I had never heard of the story itself. However, I’m a fool for a good soundtrack-centric, music-themed movie (think “Begin Again” or “La La Land”) so the trailer immediately caught my eye.

‘Dunkirk’ – A Cinematic Masterpiece

“All we did was survive.” “That’s enough.” Very rarely do you hear people cheering and clapping for a film once the credits roll. After all, the director and cast aren’t there with you. How would they know that you gave the movie a standing ovation? But once the lights came up Thursday night after theContinue reading “‘Dunkirk’ – A Cinematic Masterpiece”
