New ‘Lovebirds’ Rom-Com Flies High For Netflix

June 11th, 2020

The hook is bomb. And the payoff is huge. Netflix hit the jackpot with their latest romcom. You know how some movies are ideal to watch on a plane? You know how that’s usually an insult? Given the times we see living in it’s welcome. Some films are pure escapism and entertainment and that’s what you will find with Netflix’s latest, The Lovebirds. With Michael Showalter at the helm, it was no surprise I really dug this Netflix original. After all, Showalter directed 2 of my favorite films from the last 10 years with Hello, My Name is Doris and The Big Sick. He has a real... Read More

Quad-Cities’ Peaceful Protest Provides Powerful Lesson

May 30th, 2020

It was baby’s first protest. My daughter,  Harper, is 6, and didn’t quite understand why we were there but she knew it was important and it was for some guy who died. Kids have empathy so she was on board. It was really something to see. And her reaction to it was awesome. She somehow got it. And it wasn’t hard to grasp the importance and grace of the event. Downtown Davenport. A beautiful Saturday evening. The streets filled with people. It could’ve been any other Saturday night, pre-covid, in the summer, during a festival, or even just a nice evening with the streets... Read More

Well, Quad-Cities, What’s It REALLY Like To Be The Easter Bunny?

April 12th, 2020

Three African American children grilled me about why the Bunny was white. One of the children, no more than 8 years old, said, “This Bunny is out of touch with what’s going out there.” But I can’t talk; I can only animate. And that was my first day as the Easter Bunny. Yes, I was one of THOSE people. And by THOSE people, I mean I was one of the few, the underpaid, the sorta proud, who has donned the costume of the Easter Bunny for public appearances at everywhere from shopping malls to car dealerships to libraries and more. Where was I? Well, everywhere and nowhere,... Read More

‘Dearly Beloved,’ Gather At Richmond Hill For A Good Show

June 4th, 2018

There’s a moment in Richmond Hill’s “Dearly Beloved” where you get Heidi Pedersen, Valeree Pieper AND Diane Greenwood on stage sparring and spewing some southern “hospitality” and for a moment you forget you are watching three local theatre icons and instead feel as if you are accidentally witnessing a real family feud.  Ultimately, that’s the goal of theatre: “to pretend with authority,” as actor Willem Dafoe says, and in most productions – amateur and professional – that is fleeting and is not a notion played on repeat. Lucky for Richmond Hill and Director John VanDeWoestyne,... Read More

Ever see 50 mics drop at once? Watch ‘The Shape of Water’

January 28th, 2018

Ever see 50 mics drop at once? Watch “The Shape of Water” and you will. Guillermo del Toro drops them all and probably secures his Oscar win. The man is genius. Period. I’ve always know that. You’ve always known that. After all, Pan’s Labryinth is one of the beautiful and important films of all time. But this is different. Very different… in every way. On paper, this Amazon monster-romance-horror-fantasy-heist (yes, it’s all those and more) seems an unlikely smash hit but on the screen it sizzles and inspires. “The Shape of Water” is the year’s... Read More

Let’s check it out….   BEST PICTURE Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri The Shape of Water The... Read More

Predictions for the Golden Globes

January 6th, 2018

Sunday, the Golden Globes will be awarded, with a ceremony hosted by Seth Meyers airing at 7 p.m. CST on NBC. You really never what the hell will happen with the Golden Globes. To quote three time host Ricky Gervais, the Golden Globes are “a bit louder, a bit drunker,” and it always shows, especially in the nominations. I always read the nominees with a plethora of WTF’s. This year is no different and this year is even harder to figure out. I sat down and did my best to sttay one step ahead and so… here are my predictions for Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards:   Best Picture... Read More

It’s As If ‘Will And Grace’ Never Left

October 11th, 2017

As if we’ve never said goodbye… With a twist. When we last saw our beloved Will & Grace, their kids were grown up and marrying each other. Naturally a reboot was expected to stay on course and reveal what’s happened to everyone, right? Wrong. What is revealed in a hysterical game of Heads Up – and one of the best openings in sitcom history – is that all of that nonsense was the product of one drunken Karen Walker and her wandering mind. Within seconds, the Will & Grace creators crossed that off the list of their viewers score cards and moved on. It was It... Read More
