‘Wonder Woman’: A superhero non-fan’s review

Right off the bat here, I will be fully transparent: I am not a comic book fan. I have nothing inherently against them — quite the opposite, actually. There is a massive, loyal superhero fandom out there, which I tremendously respect and admire...I just don’t count myself among them.

However, I waited for “Wonder Woman” to hit theaters with bated breath. Why, you may ask? Plain and simple: I love movies, and I want to see all movies with women at the helm succeed. I want to see women directing in…

‘Baywatch’ is charmingly innocent, but did we need this?

Lots of things happened in the year 1989. The Berlin Wall finally came down. I was born. A bevy of beautiful lifeguards ran in slow motion on a beach, sparking a global cultural phenomenon that lasted long after the sun set over the balmy Los Angeles waters.

Here's Why 'Beauty and the Beast' Will Smash Box Office Records

It’s a tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme...stop me if you’ve heard this before.

It’s no secret that Disney’s live-action remake of the 1991 classic “Beauty and the Beast” will undoubtedly make major bank at the box office. But I think the highly-anticipated blockbuster is poised to shatter box office records — and here’s why.

From a technical standpoint, the release of this movie comes sandwiched between two other major spring releases, “Kong: Skull Island” and “Power Rangers,” two reboots…
