    This upcoming week is Hnukkah, aka: the most wonderful time of the Jewish year. The next eight days will be full fun, family-time, extremely oily food and lots and lots of holiday spirit. I know some of you see more Chistmas than Hanukkah when walking down the street, so to make...

  • Review: ‘Skyfall’

    By Joan Alperin-Schwartz

    November 6, 2012 | 6:53 pm

    'Skyfall' directed by the super talented Sam Mendes gives us a very different James Bond. Yes, he's still the charismatic, super macho male that loves sex, hot women, hot cars, gambling and kicking butt. But this time around, he's also vulnerable, slightly worn out and much more...

    Q:  What was the impetus for the story?

    A:  I’ve always been fascinated by theater people, and by the fact of my being Jewish, and those two things together led me to explore something that I’d never had any personal experience with, which is the Yiddish theater.

    August 22, 2012 | 3:59 pm

    Sometimes a film is 100 per cent entertainment…That is definitely the case with “Premium Rush” written and directed by David Koepp (writer of “Spiderman” & “Mission Impossible” etc).

    This film is one big roller coaster ride…one that you’ll want to keep riding, right up to the end.

  • Review: “Sparkle”

    By Joan Alperin-Schwartz

    August 16, 2012 | 6:42 pm

    No matter how hard you try not too, ‘Sparkle’ directed by Salim Akil, based on the 1970’s film of the same name, will always remind you of Miss Whitney Houston’s premature and very sad death. Whitney died just three months after filming this picture.

    “Sparkle” takes place in...

  • Review: “The Dark Knight Rises”

    By Joan Alperin-Schwartz

    July 18, 2012 | 8:24 pm

    Okay, the bottom line…‘The Dark Knight Rises’ directed by the uber talented Christopher Nolan, is not only the very best comic book hero movie ever made, but in my opinion, it’s worthy of an Oscar nod. That’s how good it is.

    The film, which was written by Nolan and his brother,...

    By Joan Alperin-Schwartz

    June 27, 2012 | 7:04 pm

    ‘The Amazing Spider-Man, shot in 3D and directed by Mark Webb (500 Days Of Summer) is an edgy, emotional, action-packed, at times, boring movie.  Yes I did use the ‘b’ word.

    In this version, which is definitely in my opinion, an improvement over all the preceding ‘Spider-Man films,...

  • Review: ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’

    By Joan Alperin-Schwartz

    June 21, 2012 | 9:51 pm

    Most of the time, when you see a film, after you’ve read the book, you feel let down. The movie usually pales in comparison to the novel.

    I am happy to report this isn’t the case with ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ .

    By JewishJournal.com

    June 15, 2012 | 10:36 am

    The “new” Matisyahu released a preview of his upcoming music video for the new song Sunshine this morning. Sporting [what appears to be] frosted tips, multiple scarves, skinny jeans and no kippah (headcovering), the new baby-faced Matisyahu looks like a love-child between an L.A. hipster and a youth group advisor. 

    But image isn’t everything.  Unchanged is his voice and musical style, which still reminds us why we love him today. What do you think of the new appearance?

    By Joan Alperin-Schwartz

    June 14, 2012 | 12:28 am
