Chevalier Movie Review

The film is set in the prelude to the Paris Revolution. Mozart is giving a concert and a man from the crowd asks if he could play Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. Five with him on stage. Mozart accepts, yet when he sees it’s a black man, well dressed though he is (his father supported his son so he would want for nothing), Mozart asks his audience, “Who put you up to this?” ​

Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song Movie Review

 “Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song” as a documentary is, in short, a bit too much of a good thing. Toward the film’s end, Cohen suggests with a smile that maybe it’s time people stop singing the song for a while. Then the journey starts… ​

ELVIS Movie Review

If you’re hoping for expanded details about the “King of Rock n’ Roll” in this biopic, they’re here. When you hear the name Elvis Presley, outside of the songs he courted us with, you can’t help but think of the loud outfits, big belt buckles, the mismanaged movie career and his fondness for karate. Baz Luhrmann’s usual glitz and flash are all over “Elvis” because that’s who the singer was.

JAZZ FEST: A New Orleans Story Movie Review

The late great George Wein, the creator of the Newport Jazz Festival in the 1960s, felt that New Orleans had to have a music festival of its own. New Orleans had something no other city in the world could claim. It had the birthright of jazz.

Marry Me Movie Review


In time for Valentine’s Day, I advise you to say “Yes” to “Marry Me.” Sadly, I’m more referring to the song performed by Lopez and Latin music star Maluma rather than the movie. No. The movie isn’t that bad for your typical rom com it’s just what it is… your typical rom com. With that said, for a film of this ilk, the songs were quite good all around. ​
