"Spotlight" Shines at 25th Gotham Independent Film Awards 


Tom McCarthy's "Spotlight" was the big winner at the 25th Gotham Independent Film Awards. The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the child molestation in the Catholic church took home the Best Feature and Screenplay trophies. I love this film! It's ripe for melodrama but McCarthy wisely avoided that!

Another film I love that won big at the Gotham Awards is Sean Baker's "Tangerine." It took home the Audience award with Mya Taylor winning the Breakthrough Actor trophy.

Movies To See This Thanksgiving Weekend! 


Two big movies for your Thanksgiving weekend! We have the Disney/Pixar flick “The Good Dinosaur” and the Rocky sequel/reboot “Creed.” Which one is worth your time and money? Take a look at my movie reviews of “The Good Dinosaur” and “Creed.”



Official “The Good Dinosaur” Synopsis

"The Good Dinosaur" asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of. (C) Disney

Official “Creed” Synopsis

Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father,world heavy weight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there's no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed's legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone). Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo - the fierce rival who became his closest friend.
