Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

I am not sure which is feeding on which. Obviously, the 1939 MGM’s  was the first, but not in 3D, so the new released in IMAX 3D can be said is following the footsteps, in format only, of Oz the Great and Powerful, which was in 3D when it was released. I read the squabbles between MGM and […]

My Week with Marilyn (2011)

Sir.Kenneth Branagh himself delivers three marvelous soliloquies while transcending Sir. Laurence Olivier, but who is more fitting for this role other than Branagh?

If you want a highlight of what she did as PM, watch the trailer […]
