Labor Day Weekend Roundup: a goofy comedy, a road trip doc + a fantasy romance

It's been quite a nice and mellow three-day weekend for me... the calm before the *storm* as it were, as the later part of September is going to be a pretty busy one for me. Twin Cities Film Fest is just a month away, but we'll get a preview of the film festivities this coming Friday …

Monthly Roundup & Favorite Movie of SEPTEMBER 2014

Welcome to October, folks! Autumn is officially here, though yesterday morning felt like Winter with temp in the 40s already, ugh. Autumn in Minnesota is rather unpredictable.

FlixChatter Review: Jack the Giant Slayer

I've actually never seen any Jack and the Beanstalk movie before, but of course I'm familiar with this bedtime story. I was curious enough about this one given that it's directed by Bryan Singer. It starts unpredictably enough, with Jack's father reading him a bedtime story and of course Jack always believed it's not just …

Music(al) Break: Moulin Rouge’s Come What May
