Movie Review – The Man Who Invented Christmas

Director: Bharat Nalluri Starring: Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce Year: 2017 I don’t know about you, but I loved Downton Abbey, and I’m glad to see its stars succeed in other places.  The show was basically a soap opera, but masterfully done, with characters you could fall in love with and a quality to

Director: Bryan Buckley Starring: Evan Peters, Barkhad Abdi, Al Pacino Release: December 8th, 2017 I’m not sure Evan Peters is ready for this role quite yet.  He’s great as Quicksilver, he’s tried popping up a few other places, but he hasn’t landed that great role yet/hasn’t delivered that key performance.  I can see how this
