Review: “The Jungle Book”

Jon Favreau has his passion projects, and then he has his passion projects. Take his last film, “Chef”, a fairly light under-the-radar dramedy with the writer/director in the starring role as a sought after culinary wizard who departs from a trendy high-end restaurant to open a food truck. Now look at “The Jungle Book”, an […]

Star Wars – Episode VII: The Force Awakens (Eddie’s review)

As it says in my bio, my first solid childhood memory is being in a movie theater, squealing with delight while the X-Wings skimmed the trench in 1977’s Star Wars (not bearing its A New Hope secondary title).  This was probably the first movie I loved through and through, soon amassing a collection of figurines […]
