Bob Garver: “The Secret Life of Pets” movie review

By Bob Garver “The Secret Life of Pets” is an animated kids’ movie where two dogs don’t like each other, but they find themselves stranded and in danger, so they have to work together if they ever want to get home. Just like in “Toy Story.” And “Inside Out.” And “The Good Dinosaur.” And “Finding […]

Myth Trivia: What you need to know about “Gone With The Wind”

CHARLOTTE, NC, July 6, 2016 – Today we venture away from our usual trivia pattern to focus upon just one subject, Margaret Mitchell’s classic Civil War epic “Gone with the Wind.” Beginning with something simple “Gone with the Wind” was the first Technicolor movie ever to win the Academy Award for Best Picture.

Bob Garver: “The Legend of Tarzan” movie review

By Bob Garver One of my biggest problems with “The Legend of Tarzan” is that it plays like a sequel to a movie that was never made. Don’t get me wrong, I’m aware that we’ve had plenty of Tarzan movies before and that many of them cover his origin. But we’ve never had a Tarzan […]

Sonny Bunch: ‘Free State of Jones’ movie review

By Sonny Bunch Free State of Jones begins as a meditation on the horror of war before sliding into a rousing defense of the fight for freedom before tapering off as a rather mediocre history lesson about the ineffectiveness of reconstruction.

Scarlett Johansson is highest grossing female star ever

Scarlett Johansson, star of multiple Marvel superhero movies, Luc Besson’s brilliant sci-fi thriller Lucy and Girl with a Pearl Earring, has been a leading lady for a while now.

Bob Garver: “Independence Day: Resurgence” movie review

By Bob Garver A sequel to the 1996 alien invasion flick “Independence Day” has been batted around for years.

Central Intelligence: A hilarious summer film with a message

A movie with the biggest and smallest comedy actors surely cannot go wrong. In “Central Intelligence,” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Kevin Hart combine their unique skills to create a perfect summertime comedy. “Central Intelligence” features the 5’4″ Hart and 6’5″ Johnson in a hilarious display of action with a plot that is easy to […]

Bob Garver: “Finding Dory” movie review

By Bob Garver Pixar has an excellent track record when it comes to sequels, but for a minute there it looked like “Finding Dory” wasn’t going to work. The aquatic adventure “Finding Nemo” came out all the way back in 2003; kids who grew up with it aren’t kids anymore. Maybe they had… forgotten about […]

Sonny Bunch: Star Wars – The remix awakens

By Sonny Bunch After Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ release, I wrote that it was something like a cross between fan-fiction and a straight-ahead remix of the original trilogy. Filmmaker Kirby Ferguson expands on some of these ideas here: Ferguson’s “Everything is a Remix” series is extremely popular. To get a taste for them, check out his […]
