Movie of the Week: In Bruges

On a random summer morning back in 2008, I was scoping out Blockbuster (at a time when I was still taking it for granted) hoping to find a good new movie to watch. As I was strolling around the perimeter of the store glancing at the new releases, my eyes caught an unknown title starring […]

Movie of the Week: Begin Again

The first decade of the new millennium saw the arrival of a lyrical voice in both music and film. With the release of “Once” in 2006, John Carney introduced the world to his love of music with the modern-day musical that radically changed the genre.

With math…it started with […]

Movie of the Week

  Teaser: We’re heading to France for this Movie of the Week with one of my absolute favorite films. Feast in its eye-popping visuals, delightful story, and…a travelling gnome? When I was first diving into the vast world of film, I relied primarily on IMDB’s Top 250 list (a solid place to start for any […]
