Morgan (2016) 

This movie felt like D.A.R.Y.L. and the Bourne Identity’s baby. A genetically engineered biological AI is developed and trained to prove that a machine can be taught to act human to give it an edge. A cold and calculated risk manager (played by Kate Mara) is sent to determine if Morgan, model L9, is not […]

Kubo (2016)

This movie is a wonderful work of cinematic art that is difficult to review without spoiling the ending. In essence, it is the story of an origami folding, guitar wielding, magical boy whose only pleasure in life is to listen to his mother’s bedtime stories about a legendary warrior that fought the Moon King and […]

My Bucket List: Update!

I published a bucket list a while back in the hopes to track down high level goals but I noticed some of the inner milestones to check each item are missing. Walking Wrigley Field is a part of going to all the MLB parks yet I wouldn’t be giving myself credit for this milestone. On […]

Catching Up With The Windy City

The last time I went to Chicago was to celebrate my 30th birthday. Yay! This very important milestone required four star treatment so my husband booked us a room at the famous Drake hotel (referenced in the original Tom Cruise Mission Impossible movie), and I got courtside seats (well row 8) to a Chicago Bulls vs. […]

Letting Go

Broken hearted you cry, Releasing the anger through your tears, Vowing to move on, To stay strong, To fight and live another day. It happens naturally, Regaining your composure, Becoming a new person, reborn, with no need to wallow on the pain, Once bitten, twice shy, But with the acumen to win when, not if, […]

10 Reasons to Move Now

The loyalty of the Millennials has been questioned because according to studies and polls, these “kids” switch jobs every 2 to 3 years and don’t believe in the corporations.

Death of Thrones

George R. R. Martin promised the readers that by the end of the books you would be in the middle of a war torn decimated land full of tombstones. It comes as no surprise that as season six winds down, the kill-o-meter is going haywire. Early on I realized that falling in love with a […]

My First Role Model: She-Ra, Princess of Power

My mom can attest to the fact that I had every possible item of the She-Ra collection. She was my favorite Princess, right before Allura and after Aurora, aka Sleeping Beauty. My devotion to her and to He-Man was so spectacular and all consuming that to this day, I win trivia games because I know […]

Sci-Fi At The Pops

A few years ago, I went to the Boston Pops, an offshoot of the city’s symphony orchestra series that specialized in popular music functions. From the introduction, we learned that for a time John Williams had directed the Pops, which must have been a treat for the locals. Upon our return home, and during our […]
