The film stars Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine and revolves around Keira Knightley’s character Gretta getting into the music business after her boyfriend (Adam Levine) gets too big for his britches when he strikes it big.

Whatever your age movies are very impressionable. Whether the flying monkeys scared you or the ending scene of Dirty Dancing puts a smile on your face, films leave an impact. When I was younger that was Disney. The first movie I saw in the theater was a re-release of Lady and the Tramp, I remember […]

I saw Beauty and the Beast last week and was more than happy to be their guest. I really liked that the opening introduction stayed truer to the original story than the 1991 animated film. Instead of the Beast appearing because Belle’s father trespassed Maurice is jailed for taking a rose. This was a nice […]

Posted January 5, 2017 by Whitney in movie review / 4 Comments

I had my hesitations going into Bridget Jones’s Baby. The trailers only looked so-so but I had enjoyed the first two movies and thought I might finish off Bridget’s journey through singleton on film. What a big mistake. Bridget, who has broken off her engagement to Mark Darcy is back to her thirtysomething ways despite […]
