2016 is being ruthless. It’s showing absolutely no mercy. Since the first few weeks in January, 2016 has been taking away beloved and legendary entertainers. Unfortunately, that streak continues with the death of Gene Wilder. We all grew up with Willy Wonka and even those who don’t particularly like the movie know enough of it to […]

I’m fed up with critics almost more than I can bear. I really have no idea what those people want from movies anymore.
