This is the story of Margaret (Adams) who is the artist responsible for the memorable paintings of the children with big eyes during the sixties and seventies. She married a salesman Walter Keane (Waltz) after walking out on her previous husband. (Which was a big thing for women of that time.) Keane told her that people don’t buy ‘lady art’, so it would be in both of their best financial interests if Margaret’s art was passed off as his. Over 10 years, that lie snowballed into something much larger, where Margaret was lying to her daughter, lying to herself and losing her identity in a dominated relationship. Continue reading

So more and more films are either being made and released as 3D, or re-made in 3D… Is this a necessary evil to keep the industry on its feet? Or are they just doing it because they can?
I’m guessing it is just another money-making scheme.
I honestly enjoy 2D films better than 3D with very few exceptions. VERY few exceptions. In fact, I will name them for you right now: Continue reading

What a trip!
Despite numerous films portraying Lewis Carroll’s tale of Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton’s gothic vanished tale of being lost in Wonderland hit the nail on the head. Burton’s magical story turned a once, Disney musical cartoon into a 3D adventure of mystery and excitement for the whole family… Continue reading
