Some of the ladies of Downton Abbey stand dressed up and ready to go out in the Downton Abbey movieDOWNTON ABBEY

“There is a tinge of nostalgia that clings to every nook and cranny as we follow the thread of its legacy through the inevitable passage of time. May Downton continue to thrive in Mr. Fellowes imagination and lead him to conjure up yet another gilded installment on the big screen.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

“If you find yourself encountering the Crawley family (and their relatives and servants) for the first time, you may not be moved to track down the 52 episodes of the series, but the movie is a pleasant and entertaining story.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

In a spacesuit Brad Pitt looks out the window of a spacecraft in the movie Ad AstraAD ASTRA

“Most of the negative attributes that I see in AD ASTRA wouldn’t matter as much if they would have just sped things up.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“AUGGIE answers the age-old plaint of ‘what do women want?’ with the question ‘what do men want?’” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
