Growing up in Scranton, Jeremy Saltry and Joey Dominick know just how ingrained – baked in, if you will – pizza is in NEPA culture, so […]

MOVIE REVIEW: A truly scary premise gets lost in ‘The Forest’

MOVIE REVIEW: A truly scary premise gets lost in ‘The Forest’

This movie had everything going for it – it really did. It had a lead actress in Natalie Dormer, who I have enjoyed before, particularly in “Game of Thrones” and her OK performance in “The Hunger Games” films. She’s likable in most things, really – just not “The Forest.” Dormer plays Sara Price, an American […]

Documentary about Holocaust survivor ‘Blue Tattoo’ screens Jan. 24 at The Cooperage in Honesdale

From a press release: At first glance, Dina Rosenberg Jacobson and Joe Crookston seemed like unlikely collaborators. When they were introduced in 2008, the 86-year-old Holocaust survivor with white hair and a tattooed left forearm and the youthful folk singer/songwriter from Ithaca, New York came from different worlds. But Jacobson’s story inspired Crookston to write […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Danish Girl’ addresses today’s transgender issues through a true story from 1926

Last year, the public spotlight was cast on transgender issues. For the first time, a high-profile transition had captured the general public’s attention. Caitlyn Jenner was an inspiration for many, raising questions for some and bringing out deplorable hate speech from far too many others. 2015 introduced people to a struggle that those in the […]
