Dr. Will Caster is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working
to create a machine that combines the intelligence of everything ever
known with the full range of human emotions. These experiments have made him famous but have also made him a target for
competitors who will do anything to stop him. As usual his desire to make the world better became a quest for power. The movie
was a great idea, but that’s where ‘great’ stopped. The movie fell short of its goals just as Dr. Will Caster fell short of his.
I question whether you might want to waste your time renting it on Netflix or Cable.

Go see it only if you have a craving for movie popcorn.

On the day of the NFL Draft, general manager of the Cleveland Indians football team, Sonny Weaver, is 12 hours away from drafting
the number 1 pick to save his beloved team. The 12 hours until the he has to decide on this pick
is emotionally charged with the threat of losing his job from his boss, the needs of the team and his gut feeling about what
he really needs to do. The trades, phone calls and strategies make this a very interesting movie even for those you are not
football fans. The decisions are even more involved as his relationship with Ali (Jennifer Garner) is also in abeyance.
I definitely recommend this movie.

Jude Law, Demi·n Bichir,
Dom Hemingway is a volatile safe-cracker with a loose fuse. He spent 12 years in prison because he wouldn’t give up his boss.
After keeping his mouth shut he expected his boss to give him what he is owed. The movie is vile in some ways, profane and
violent. At times there were attempts at humor, but it tragically fell short. Save your money. It isn’t even worth a trip to the
theater for good popcorn.

Due to the lack of entertainment in the movie theaters I ventured onto “Broadway”
A good musical, better than expected with a great score and exceptional acting. The best is when they bring the ring
into the audience by moving the theater goers from the first ten rows, putting them in bleachers on the stage and bring the ring
over the first ten rows. I give it…

A sweet musical that was revived from an off-Broadway production of the same name. It was blessed with another
wonderful performance by Sutton Foster who I call the Queen of Broadway. The music ranged from country to Gospel. It told a
story of a girl seeking to find an evangelist, who can ‘heal’ a horrific scar on her face. You never really see the scar, but that
goes with the theme that scars are only on the surface, what is beneath is what counts.
I highly recommend Violet. I give it…

Was fabulous, my 3 and 5 year old granddaughters loved it, along with
my son and his wife. The costumes, music, staging, choreography were amazing. A must see for all ages.
