Weekend Roundup: Oz The Great and Powerful review

It's the last week of March already, but Spring is arriving VERY s-l-o-w-l-y here in Minnesota. By around the same time last year, we're already in mid 60s, I think some people were wearing shorts on St. Patrick's Day? This year, I'd be thrilled to see mid 40s by next weekend! I did see a …

Question of the Week: What’s your favorite White House movie scene?

I'm set for an advanced screening of the white house actioner Olympus Has Fallen tomorrow. Surely you've seen the pretty aggressive promos of that one all over the place.

Weekend Roundup: The Intouchables Review

Happy Tuesday! Hope y'all had a great St. Patrick's Day weekend. Did you see any Irish film?
