CYRANO | Official Trailer | MGM Studios

Following upon numerous dramatic and comedic interpretations of Edmond Rostand’s classic tale of unrequited love, comes a musical interpretation where the protagonist’s hangup isn’t the size of his nose. Rather, it’s the size of his body. Cyrano de Bergerac (Peter Dinklage, TV’s GOT) is an officer of the guard in mid-17th century France. Although he […]

WEST SIDE STORY

Read Time:20 Second

Hollywood loves a remake. Sometimes it’s a successful foreign film recast with English-speaking celebrities. Sometimes it’s a decent story that just didn’t work the first time around. Most of the time, it’s a hollow-minded cash-grab by a studio rejiggering its intellectual property. But now and then, it’s a filmmaker of regard taking a bonafide classic […]

I remember the first time I saw “West Side Story.” I watched the 1961 film during class at my Catholic elementary school decades later — on a square TV on a rolling cart — and it was transformative. I immediately loved the music, choreography, dancing, characters, and storytelling. I watch that version from time to […]

Read Time:18 Second

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 5 out of 5. There are always moments when we think we are misunderstood, blamed and judged for something we had nothing to do with. Also, people think if we are emotional, loud and extremely cheerful or angry from the outside, we are bad and should be ignored. Evan Hansen (reprising his role […]

It’s a beautiful scene—my favorite in the entire film, actually—and one that made me immediately […]
