#CindySays… Thoughts on A Star is Born (2018)

#CindySays… Aquaman is just your average fish story

Aquaman was always one of my favorite comic books as a kid. I so wanted it to be great… but I found this one to under utilize the potential of Jason Momoa and Patrick Wilson. The good stuff?

#CindySays Why don’t we “love” the new Star Wars stories?

#CindySays Review – Amazon Original: Oasis (Pilot)

If it is a good one, it will set the foundation, establish characters, give you a tantalizing taste of things to come– and leave you wanting more. Oasis does that exactly. Reminiscent of sci-fi stories told before, it reveals … More #CindySays Review – Amazon Original: Oasis (Pilot)

Feuding families, sketchy businesses, cutthroat competition … we’ve seen this over and again with mafia films and series. The Godfather, Goodfellas, Bugsy, Magic City, to My Blue Heaven are titles on a very long list as Hollywood has had an ongoing love affair with La Familia.
