Re: Black Panther Reviews

With the year almost half over, just two films, Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, still account for over 1/3 of all domestic -theatrical-box-office sales.

Yes, I would consider Perestroika to be an adaptation.

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

Every award went to an adaptation, either a revival or a non-revival based on a movie or TV show. Does anyone know if this is the first time it has happened?

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

The big Donald-Trump-potential-pardoning-marathon surprise for me is Martha Stewart. At this point, with her being out of jail for years and back to her career, it could not make any impact on her life. She even publicly supported Hilary Clinton. The only thing I can think of is to thumb his nose at...

This is more than the number of people who died in 9-11 and more than twice the number of people who died from Hurricane Katrina.

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

His mood shift in the play is just as startling as the film’s Michael and Parsons does a great job of keeping the whole ensemble together through the Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf-style drunken confrontations that begin to accumulate. My reaction of the films is that, even while they cover much th...

Titanic brings up the question of how much credit goes to the cinematography vs. the special effects. For example, the night sky when Jack and Rose hang on to the piece of ship is computer generated, obviously they did not shoot in the middle of the ocean at night; however, there would need to be c...

At first I thought, how great that someone my age will finally get to see Glenda Jackson give an acceptance speech at an awards show... until I did some digging and learned that she wasn't present to accept her Oscars or Emmys either! Presumably she'll show at the Tonys, right, considering there's ...

At least with the three-hour run time, they were able to make more use of its $300million+ budget.
