When the Game Stands Tall

When the Game Stands Tall

When the Game Stands Tall Runtime 117 minutes. OK for children. This cliché-ridden biopic of high school coach Bob Ladouceur (Jim Cavaiezel) and how his 2004 team coped with the ending of De La Salle’s (a small school just outside of Oakland) 151 game winning streak is so preachy it robs itself of entertainment value.

Into the Storm

Into the Storm Runtime 89 minutes. OK for children. In late April of 1974 I was in St. Thomas on business. I had a flight to Knoxville, where I had an office, the next day, but the wind was blowing a gale and I thought it would be wise to fly to Knoxville immediately. So […]

Get on Up

Get on Up

Get on Up Runtime 137 minutes. OK for children. This is the way that a biopic of a music legend should be brought to screen. It’s full of music and Chadwick Boseman is lip-syncing to the voice of James Brown. It would have been a tragedy to have someone try to mimic a voice that […]
