The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

When I first saw the trailer to this film, I knew I had to see it. Being a Martin Scorsese fan, I had the utmost confidence it would not disappoint. And, guess what? I was right. (Note: It’s been awhile since I’ve seen a Scorsese flick — the last one I saw was this film.) At first glance, this movie is not typical of Scorsese. Now some folks may not like it.

Les Misérables (2012)

Some are funny, some are sad, some are dramatic and some are true. But, it takes real talent to come up with a movie that can weave all these elements together – this film has done just that.

Movie Preview – Eat, Pray, Love

When I first heard this book being turned into a movie from my tweep’s, @ReelTalker, blog post, I really got excited.

And, great stories always include great adventures. (Note: I am wondering if my tweep, @Clarabela, at Just Chick Flicks is interested in this movie as well. I feel it may be a very relatable film for many women Read more [...]
