Movie review: "Love the Coopers"

OK so “Love The Coopers”.

This movie was marketed as the inheritor to “The Family Stone”–a modest, well-rehearsed actor’s piece centering on a mildly dysfunctional family, with faint overtones of “Love Actually”‘s spiderweb-like structure (where we meet all the characters first and discover their intersections later). 604 more words

'Trumbo' Movie Review

This movie is based on a true story and book of the same name. Essentially, one of the best screenwriters in history (and other artists) was jailed for their political views. 78 more words

Drama Movie


Talented writers, liberal politics, power equalized and a family that adjusts to circumstances and stays united…what is not to like! Certainly,it is not Bryan Cranston or Diane Lane whose chemistry and depth of character have us wishing to know more about James Dalton Trumbo and Cleo,his loving and insightful and wise wife. 745 more words
