MOVIE REVIEW: Patriots Day

  Bottom Line Up Front: this movie took me through the full gamut of emotions and I did cry. I went into the screening of Patriots Day, the Peter Berg directed film starring Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, Kevin Bacon and J.K. Simmons, depicting the events leading up to, during and following the Boston Marathon bombing in April of 2013, with discontent. It may be that the memories of the events shown in this film have barely scabbed over or it may be my general disdain for Mark Wahlberg. I can assure you both were quickly cast aside by what...

The much anticipated (for better or worse) Ghostbusters refresh hit American soil for mass consumption last evening. Before we venture any further, let’s just address the Stay Puft sized elephant(s) in the room: the trailers are bad, the marketing has been an exercise in futility, and I was not looking forward to this film. Much to my surprise, I did not walk out of the theater in a heated rage and my childhood affection for the original film and cast was left completely intact. I did have quite a few light hearted chuckles, but those were negated quickly by...
