New to On Demand: The Post

News. It drives the country — hard-hitting reports, puff pieces and even the newly crafted “fake news.” It graces newspapers, magazines, television, radio and online media outlets. The press was put in place to serve the people. Do they always make everyone happy? No, but is their job to make us happy? In the film The Post from director Steven Spielberg, we see how the Washington, D.C., newspaper fought to keep their freedoms alive and brought the Pentagon Papers to light. Back in 1971, The Washington Post was thought of as a nice little paper, but surely not as mammoth […]

New to On Demand: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Long ago in a galaxy far, far, away I was a young boy who was introduced to the Star Wars saga. As a boy, I didn’t care that we started in the middle of the story, I was just overjoyed to see a unbelievable set of characters appear in front of me on a screen. Through the years, I have experienced the magic of the Star Wars films on giant screens and waited, like most, very patiently to see where the universe took us with each new film. I’m happy to say that the latest installment, Star Wars: The Last […]

Bad movies can be fun. I’ve always had an affinity for both the best and the worst that hit the silver screen. Every time I sit down, I look forward to the journey that will unfold before my eyes.

New to On Demand: Justice League

We love feeling that someone is protecting us in every corner of the world. It doesn’t matter whether that person is a lone man armed with sophisticated weaponry or a woman with extraordinary abilities and a fearless attitude. But the thought of an entire team to battle evil — well, that sounds too good to be true. But it is true in Justice League, the newest addition to the DC Universe of films. In my years as a film critic and fan, I’ve seen many superhero movies enter the pipeline. The thought of a new film including Batman, Wonder Woman, […]
