Rating: PG-13 Stars: Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, Tom Holland, Angus McFadyen Writer: James Gray, based on the book by David Grann Director: James Gray Distributor: Amazon Studios/Bleecker Street Release Date: April 14, 2017 THE LOST CITY OF Z covers two decades in the early twentieth century. The movie feels a bit like it was made in the middle-late twentieth century, the ‘60s through the ‘80s, when there were more stories like this one, concerning men finding themselves by leaving civilization behind.

Stars: Heather Morris, Nancy Kerrigan, Mr. T, Bonner Bolton, Erika Jayne, David Ross, Simone Biles, Normani Kordei, Rashad Jennings, Nick Viall Network: ABC, airs Monday Original Telecast: April 10th, 2017 By far my favorite night on DANCING WITH THE STARS is “The Most Memorable Year” night.

Sadly, Mr. T ended his run on DWTS tonight, along with […]Read On »

Sorry, but I have a BIG pet peeve to vent here – there is a HUGE lack of drama when Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews announce at the end of the show who is in jeopardy and then with one big woosh they announce the other nine or ten couples are safe. One of […]Read On »
