There are times when you want a movie experience to be up-lifting.  Many of us would agree that these are just such times.  Fortunately, there is a film that delivers . . . “Lion.” The quick synopsis is this:  a five-year-old Indian boy, Saroo gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, a thousand miles from

Stressed Out? Have some sex!

Stressed Out?  Have some sex!

With the transition to becoming solo, there comes a great deal of worry.  But you’re not alone.  Studies show that 40% of all Americans lose sleep because of some type of stress.  52% of Americans worry about their health and 62% of those of us over 65 years worry about money.  We live in a

Note To Self: Go Out.

If you have not gone on a date, had a meal out, or seen a movie in the past month, then it is time to push yourself.  Static friction is hard to overcome but we have found that once you get some inertia going, it tends to perpetuate itself. Many of our Suddenly Solos use

The assassination of John F. Kennedy is a historical touchstone for most of us Suddenly Solos. We can remember where we were and what we were doing when he heard the news in November of 1963.  The next few days were etched into the collective conscience of the world. The new film, Jackie dramatizes the

Manchester By The Sea

Manchester By The Sea

This film will likely be an Academy Award favorite with exceptional acting and a poignant story to make its case for Oscar glory.  That said, it is not an uplifting cinematic experience. Rather, it examines the fragile nature of human loss and guilt as experienced by “regular” people.  In this case, it is through the

Football and Big-Screen TVs: Made for Each Other

Although any sport looks better on a large-screen television, football seems to have the best coverage and camera angles that make watching it in high-definition and on a screen that is larger than 27 inches pretty remarkable. Here are some tips if you are thinking about upgrading your current unit: Wait until January for the

Birth Of A Nation

Birth Of A Nation

The 1831 rebellion led by enslaved African American, Nat Turner in Virginia jolted the South at the time. It resulted in the deaths of over 50 white people before the revolt was put down in two days but mob retaliation by fearful whites killed over 200 blacks.  It was a bloody, sorry moment in the

Hell or High Water

Hell or High Water

We are pretty much suckers for any movie with Jeff Bridges. He just seems to dissolve into any of the characters he plays.  He does not disappoint in Hell or High Water. Beautifully filmed in current day west Texas, writer Taylor Sheridan (Sicario) uses the expansive landscape to tell a well-developed story of a divorced

Sully

It’s hard to create a movie when you already know how everything is going to end. Leave it to Clint Eastwood’s, “Sully” to challenge you from the very first scene about your real understanding of the “Miracle On The Hudson”  landing in 2009. And that’s quite an accomplishment.  To create a story that has to
