‘John Wick — Chapter 3 — Parabellum’ simply demands to be seen

‘John Wick — Chapter 3 — Parabellum’ simply demands to be seen

By Chic DiCiccio “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” has one big problem: it firmly establishes that the main character cannot be stopped. John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is a monolithic force, smartly dressed and always ready to take out his enemies by any means necessary. The thing is … that’s fine. Reeves’ Wick dispenses justice […]

‘Positive sensitivity’ reflected in paintings

“Essence of the Human Spirit” is the latest presentation from the Fairmont Street Gallery.

By Sara Newberry Poke, for me, is the perfect middle of the road option for when I’m in the mood for sushi, but either don’t have the time to sit down in a sushi restaurant, or don’t want to spend $30-$50 on a sushi meal.  I predicted about two years ago that poke would be […]

‘Long Shot’ so darn charming it’s impossible to resist

‘Long Shot’ so darn charming it’s impossible to resist

By Chic DiCiccio If you strip away much of it, “Long Shot” is an old-fashioned romantic comedy. The high class, straight-laced person falls for their exact opposite, who of course is a flaky underdog that’s completely out of their league. So really, “Long Shot” is just like “Notting Hill” … if you remove the English […]
