I recently attended one of the final performances of Cavalia’s Odysseo in Toronto. My review will be short and sweet. I am not a big fan of acrobatics or horses. Critics would say that I was a fool for spending upwards of $150+ per ticket for attending a show featuring acrobats on horses. I can’t say that I was totally disappointed in the show, but it definitely did not live up to the hefty expectations set by other reviewers. Read more
The original Planet of the Apes movies were done well before my time. Back in 1968, a young Charlton Heston traveled to post apocalyptic earth to discover it was now run by gorillas, chimps, and orangutans. That began a successful string of films leading up to the 2001 Tim Burton remake of Planet of the Apes starring Mark Wahlberg. Fast forward to 2011. Anyone who had seen the original movies wondered how the Apes had taken over earth. The new film, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, answers all of those questions, and foreshadows more prologues to the original films. Read more

I’d like to begin this review by stating that I am not a Harry Potter fan, nor have I read any of the books. J.K. Rowling has somehow amassed a fortune with this series of books, and movies and she is now one of the richest women in all of Britain. Part of me cannot believe that this is true, but the other part of me that has enjoyed many of the Harry Potter movies understands why. The Harry Potter series has mass appeal, and at times can be quite captivating. After massive successes in both paperback and in the box offices, I am happy to say that the latest Harry Potter movie doesn’t disappoint. Read more
