Running Time: 8 Episodes (each between 34 and 39 minutes in length)

This documentary travel series is now available to stream on Apple TV+.

Apparently, 75-year-old Canadian comedic actor Eugene Levy isn’t much of a traveler. Despite this, Apple TV+ has convinced the performer to venture out across the planet for a new program on their streaming service. To be fair, the concept of putting a personality in front of the cameras as a reluctant visitor to new lands isn’t particularly uncommon. The British 2010 – 2012 series An Idiot Abroad and the 2017 – 2021 show Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father did it well, though often taking glee in the...

A few weeks back, the Academy Awards were announced. As always, there were a few pleasant surprises and strange omissions (it’s hard for there not to be, given there are only five nominees for most categories taken from a selection of hundreds upon hundreds of titles). Most would agree the biggest shock was the inclusion of Andrea Riseborough for Best Actress in To Leslie, an independent drama that received little publicity and grossed less than $30,000 dollars at the box office.

Running Time: 125 minutes

This feature from Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures is opening at theaters nationwide on Feb. 17.

It has been a few years since Marvel fans have seen the Ant-Man character appear on the big screen (specifically, Avengers: Endgame in 2019). These films have always tried to inject as much humor as thrills, often to varying effect.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is even more bold in its efforts to mix genres. It further expands the Marvel comic book universe by adding a major and stone-faced villain into the proceedings. There are a few amusing gags and some enjoyable action toward the close, but the attempts to throw in...
