TV Review: Turn Season 1

TV Review: Turn Season 1

Shrewsbury, Massachusetts- The American Revolution is one of the most interesting periods of American History. This is possibly because it was the official start of what we refer to today as “American History,” but it nonetheless is an exciting period that is often overlooked in Hollywood. The most we’ve gotten in the last few decades [...]

Music Review: American Beauty

Music Review: American Beauty

Shrewsbury, Massachusetts-Record Store Day is a staple in my circle of acquaintances. A chance for vinyl-lovers like myself to get their hands on some exclusive releases from some of the world’s top music acts in a celebration of music and the “ancient” forms they came in. One of the day’s biggest releases this year comes [...]

TV Review: Hannibal Season 2

TV Review: Hannibal Season 2

 Shrewsbury, Massachusetts-The mythology of Hannibal Lector runs deep. Anthony Hopkins has been serving us liver with fava beans and a nice Chianti for over twenty years. So when a Hannibal television series was announced, it seemed like a bad idea. It seemed like nothing but a cheap gimmick to try and get viewers back into [...]

Senior Moments – for week of April 14

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – There’s a story written by Oscar Wilde called “The Picture of Dorian Gray” where a young man is so beautiful and conceited that he has his portrait painted and then, falling in love with his own likeness, wishes that the image in the painting would age instead of his actual face.

Senior Moments – for week of March 31

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Leading a fairly sedentary lifestyle I’m very fond of reading biographies of explorers who have traveled the world over in search of fame and adventure, men like Sir Edmund Hillary who was the first to successfully climb Mt. Everest and return, Adm. Richard E. Byrd who lived alone in the Antarctic for [...]

Senior Moments – for week of March 24

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – It’s been a long time since I was in elementary and high school but the things that I learned in Math, Language, and Science classes are as true and correct today as they were over 60 years ago. Euclidean Geometry or the Pythagorean Theorem haven’t altered and are still taught in classrooms [...]

Senior Moments for week of March 17

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – I’ve been called many things over the years and not all of which were flattering, but one that my wife likes to use is “The Great White Hunter.” Not that I actually hunt, but whenever I go fishing she always assumes I’ll come back with nothing but stories of the ones that [...]

Senior Moments – for week of March 10

In case you don’t realize it, this week contains a special date of great significance. First of all it’s my wife’s birthday but while that is of personal importance, I’m referring to something of even more cataclysmic consequence if that’s possible. Besides my spouse, looking at the names of others born on March 14 it’s [...]

Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor

  Lone Survivor (2014) Dir. Peter Berg       Lone Survivor is a film I’ve been avoiding, but knew I had to see eventually. The ad campaigns for it made it seem like just an okay Team America sort of film. Yet, the press was talking about it being an Oscar contender. Though it didn’t [...]
