Jane Fonda in Five Acts (2018) Review: A Gripping Memoir

Jane Fonda in Five Acts (2018) Review: A Gripping Memoir
Jane Fonda’s memoir proves to be both a charged and dysfunctional story of the search for one woman’s identity and worth. The documentary takes viewers down an unusual winding road, explaining the early years, acting and celebrity life, periods of activism, family and Fonda legacy. Jane makes her mark by pushing the envelope and embracing her place in history with... Read more »

'Avengers: Infinity War' (2018): Emotions Run High with Universe Hanging in the Balance
Do we all live or do we all die? Who stays and who goes? You will not know the answers to these questions until you see ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. At first, I thought the movie was about fighting a war “infinitely” like ‘X-men’s Days of Future Past’. Time to throw down the gauntlet…so to speak??... Read more »
