How Do You Stream?
Posted By : Nancy Schess

I’m taking a survey. There are so many viewing options today. Netflix? Amazon Prime? Hulu? And how about streaming sticks like Roku or Amazon Fire Stick? To be honest, I don’t even really know what those are. That said, my current options seem limited. Netflix just isn’t what it used to be. What is your favorite mode of streaming? I’m ready

Just OK

  This past weekend we saw Manchester By The Sea. Perhaps because we had such high expectations, we were disappointed. Casey Affleck is a very talented actor, but frankly, I though his portrayal was flat. I most liked the actor who played Casey's nephew, but perhaps because I have a 16 year old son. The movie was on the longer side for reason

The New Netflix
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  A game changer, really.     Last week, Netflix changed its offering. Now, instead of needing wifi or a data connection to watch your favorite Netflix programming, all you need is some downloaded content. Netflix has your favorite programs, well at least mine, available for a quick download.     For any of you out there who commute, you will u

Truth
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  I am not sure I have ever written a movie review blog. But here goes. This past weekend, we saw “Truth”, the movie about what came to be known as Rathergate, the news story that took down Dan Rather. Regardless of whether you lean the same way as the movie, I recommend visiting a movie theatre soon to take this one in. First, really excellent

Play It Again Sam

For me it would be a tie between My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Pretty Woman -- by far, my two favorite movies. The former because somehow I can relate to the big Greek family (and my husband’s windex is WD-40). The latter because apparently I am a sucker for a good Cinderella story. So what would your movie be? Finish this sentence. If I was f

No Joan?

This is my Oscar blog. I really enjoyed the show this year but there was one glaring omission for me.  I always enjoy the part of the evening that shows respect for the stars who have passed in the prior year.  I am usually surprised at someone who I thought was still around or nostalgic about a particular celebrity about whom I have fond memori

Not Even One Shade For Me
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  Consider this a movie review in advance. Fifty Shades of Grey, the movie, is hitting local theaters. You cannot turn on the television these days without finding an interview, preview, hype and more hype. Personally, I do not intend to see the movie although I am fascinated by the interest in it. Admittedly, I read the first book and maybe

Captain Phillips
Posted By : Nancy Schess

At some point during the movie, I had to put the popcorn down because I was seasick.  I think that means I liked the film. I remember following the news when the Maersk Alabama was attacked by pirates in 2009 but there was so much more to the story depicted in the film than what I remember from the news at the time. (I know there is controversy
