I really wanted to like “Ant-Man and the Wasp.”Read More
The original “Sicario” released in 2015 was an amazing well-crafted tale made my Top 10 list that year. “Sicario: Day of the Soldado,” a follow-up in the “Sicario” saga, finds our anti-heroes played by Oscar-nominated Josh Brolin and Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro, who reprise their roles from the original flick.Read More
There is a select segment of society that relishes violence and death on the big screen. I, however, am not one of those individuals. I saw the other “Purge” movies, so spending my time with this one is part of my duty as an at-large film critic.Read More
As far as Marvel films go, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” may surpass positive reviews by critics and audiences alike. This film marks the return of Paul Rudd as Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly as the Wasp. Michael Douglas and Michael Peña return as their supportive helpers.Read More
This one is all about the girls. Whereas the 2001 ‘Oceans’ update, led by George Clooney and directed by Stephen Soderbergh, was one of the biggest blockbusters of the past decade, “Ocean’s 8” finds Gary Ross directing an all-female crew led by Sandra Bullock as Clooney’s screen sister, Debbie Ocean.
Summertime is here and a pop-up art museum called Sweet Tooth Hotel has some sweet and interesting exhibits to discover. Not just fine art paintings, but also sculptures and fascinating art installations.Read More
I guess it’s time for the kids to grow up. But, even though Toys “Я” Us is closing its doors, the people who grew up with the famous toy store will always be Toys “Я” Us kids. The toy company announced the closure of 180 brick-and-mortar stores across America on May 15. It will be history by the end of the month.Read More
Just because a film is “based on a true story” doesn’t guarantee a favorable review. I say this because the filmmakers behind “Adrift” seemed to think they hit an automatic gold mine with this true-life tale about one woman’s ordeal with the ocean.Read More
I’m a sucker for one big thing: Disney animated films. After 14 years of waiting, the family of supers comes to life onscreen again in “Incredibles 2.” Brad Bird previously directed “The Incredibles” and the critically acclaimed “The Iron Giant” and “Ratatouille.” His most recent film, “Tomorrowland,” returned him to his post at Pixar Animation Studios to helm this much-anticipated animated feature.Read More
“Hotel Artemis” was just plain awesome. It’s set in 2028 Los Angeles where nothing but malevolent riots and touches of anarchy take place in the midst of Middle America. The hotel is essentially a place criminals go when other plans go south. It’s a place where only paying members are allowed.
I have seen lots of comments on the internet lately about the new Netflix production “The Kissing Booth,” so I decided to find out what the buzz was all about.

I think fan boys and novices alike will enjoy a complete background of everyone’s favorite pirate and smuggler, including anti-hero Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo in the Ron Howard-directed “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”Read More
As far as sequels go, “Deadpool 2” delivers the goods. I cannot give any spoilers away, so I have to find the right words to use and not give away any key plot points or, God forbid, spoilers of any kind.Read More
The Drama department will be busy this summer, if all goes as planned. Andy Long, drama director, has scheduled refresher classes in June and July for middle and high school drama teachers. He got the idea from his wife, Kristi, who teaches drama at the Episcopal School of Dallas. She was looking for local refresher classes in stage scenery and lighting.Read More
Once a year, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) chapters from all over the world gather at the Catalyst International Convention to learn and share their experiences.

As college students may know, trying to find a date can sometimes be stressful. Everyone knows Googlemania has taken over America, but how much information does a person need to know about someone before going on a date?Read More
