Rating: R Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mahershala Ali, Keri Russell Writer: Gary Ross, story by Leonard Hartman & Gary Ross Director: Gary Ross Distributor: STX Entertainment Release Date: June 24, 2016 Rather extraordinarily, the broad facts of FREE STATE OF JONES are true.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Blake Lively, Oscar Jaenada, Brett Cullen, Sedona Legge Writer: Anthony Jaswinski Director: Jaume Collet-Serra Distributor: Sony/Columbia Release Date: June 24, 2016 THE SHALLOWS pits Blake Lively’s surfer, Nancy Adams, against a Great White shark that has taken up residence near a secluded beach in Mexico.

It’s usually not a problem, except when the movie wants to be taken seriously on a number of levels. THE SHALLOWS aims […]Read On »

Book Review: THE LAST DREAM KEEPER

THE LAST DREAM KEEPER | © 2016 Ace Paperback Original

Writer: Amber Benson Publisher: Ace Paperback Original Publication Date: January 2016 Suggested Retail Price: $15 THE LAST DREAM KEEPER is a follow-up to Amber Benson’s THE WITCHES OF ECHO PARK. Anyone who is familiar with that area of Los Angeles probably wondered if Benson’s first book in this series was fact or fiction. Echo Park is funky and forested and seems entirely likely to host a coven of magical practitioners. In fact, WITCHES is a work of horror-tinged urban fantasy, with Lyse returning from out of state to tend to her beloved great-aunt Eleanora, who turns out to be Lyse’s […]Read On »
