Remember This: A Movie Review of Casablanca

The old saying goes, “Can’t live with them, can’t live without them.” The same thing holds true for legends.



Although the movie showed little success at its first publication (perhaps the title turned people away?), it became wildly popular in 1988 (when VHS and new-fangled “videos” were introduced) as the few who had first loved The Princess Bride showed it to their children… and then to their grandchildren.

Her Fantasy: A Review of the Movie “Austenland”

    What is it about men who wear breeches, billowy white shirts, velvet waistcoats, and top hats? Is it the knee-high boots that make the ensemble or the way they tip their hat as a woman passes by? For Regency era-loving Jane Hayes in the film Austenland, it’s simply because the men are living in the ideal yesteryear of Jane Austen’s world.


Joy is a flame Like a burst of wings and sweet voices, it proclaims Hosanna in a frosted soul, a frozen field Our feet fly over the ground to greet the King; we are poor in spirit, But a great light has kindled within our hearts.


Is our heartache taken from us just because you sorrowed, too? Has our road a happy ending since you’re traveling it, too? Is our miserable surrender to the lines of finitude Less terrifying now since you capitulated, too?
