Harry Potter, the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

Mike Hinshaw - Sunday, July 24, 2011

Now, we have just seen the final edition in the most highly publicized, longest running series on the earth. I am referring to Harry Potter, the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. It stars a lot of the same folks: Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron), Emma Watson (Hermione), Michael Gambon (Dumbledore), Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix), Alan Rickman (Snape), and finally Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort-one whose name we do not speak!).  More

Super 8

Mike Hinshaw - Thursday, June 16, 2011

Finally a decent movie, actually an outstanding movie. One to start the summer with, I’m referring to Super 8, starring a gaggle of youth who are putting together a home movie. Joel Courtney (brand new) leads off as the hero, so to speak. We also have Ryan lee (Trick or Treat, Shorts) as a pyromaniac, Zach Mills (Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium) a movie set assistant, Riley Griffiths (new) the movie producer, Gabriel Basso (Alabama Moon, The Big C) the leading man in the home movie, and Elle Fanning (Yes, Dakota’s sister, has been in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Déjà vu) as the leading lady in the home movie. We also have some adults, Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights, King Kong), Ron Eldard (Blackhawk Down, House of Sand and Fog) and Joel McKinnon Miller (Big Love, Men in Black 2).  More
