The new James Bond film, ‘Spectre’, wasn’t as good as 2012’s Skyfall, but it was not bad. It was more a sequel to the last film rather than a stand alone movie with a new story. It touches on some of the classic Bond tropes found in all the films and even brings back a long lost classic villain but drops the ball on some of the plot, the romance, and the gadgets. It might not be the best film of 2015 but it does continue the renaissance of the Bond films with Daniel Craig. Continue reading →
One of my favorite bands, The Corrs, are back together. Their first live performance in 10 years took place on Sunday in Hyde Park London UK, in front of thousands, during an all day festival hosted by BBC Radio 2.
They played the biggest hits of course and one of my favorites if not a big hit in “Radio”. Word on the street is their new album will be coming out in November.

Thanks, Dave for all of the fun. Continue reading →
(L to R) Hayley Kiyoko, Charley Koontz, Shad Moss, James Van Der Beek, Patricia Arquette, and Peter MacNicol in CSI: Cyber (2015)
This spring the long time CBS show CSI spun off a new version called CSI: Cyber. The show revolves around an FBI team that investigates crimes that start or exist on the Internet. While crimes related to the Internet seems like a good idea for a TV show, CSI: Cyber turns out to be a bland and predictable attempt. Continue reading →
The Judge is a good family drama about the rebel of the family returning to help his overbearing father in his moment of need. If there is a fault, the film is too dense with several story threads. It isn’t sure what story to tell so it feels padded. Continue reading →
The ABC Family cable channel is known for family friendly programing and series that appeal to the teen demographic. I was shocked the other day to see a promo for broadcast of the movie ‘Bad Teacher’ with Cameron Diaz. The movie is not family friendly nor something just any teen should see. A clean version shown on TV makes the movie even worse. Continue reading →
