Review: GOOD BOYS

By Mark Saldana

Rating: 3.5 (Out of 4 Stars)

Superbad now has a spiritual prequel and that movie is Good Boys. It is certainly fitting that this raunchy tween comedy comes from producers Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill, three comedic talents responsible for Superbad. And yes, this movie deserves its R-rating. So for those who can’t handle wild and hilarious ribaldry, it is best to stay away. For those who relish in some lewd craziness with a tender heart, buy tickets now.

Review: WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE?

By: Renee’ C.
Rating: 5 (Out of 5 Reels)

A loving mom, Bernadette Fox (Cate Blanchett), becomes compelled to reconnect with her creative passions after years of sacrificing herself to her family. Her leap of faith takes her on an epic adventure that jump-starts her life and leads to her triumphant rediscovery (IMDB).

I thought this was going to be another formulaic walk through how mom realizes she is unhappy because she sacrificed her aspirations to raise children and support her husband routine. And, on the surface that is exactly what this film is but, and that is a big but, this film is so extremely well written, acted and directed it takes it to another level. Read more »

David Crosby may not be the nicest rock and roll hippie in the world, but he is definitely a legendary talent. This documentary about the former Byrd/supergroup member gives audiences an intimate look at the life and career of an artist who is mostly unapologetic about his silver tongue, but is actually somewhat regretful about some of his life choices. Producer Cameron Crowe and director A.J. Eaton takes Crosby’s fans down mermory lane and introduce newbies to the fascinating, and sometimes moving, ups and downs that Crosby experienced throughout a life of fame and infamy.
