Kevin Kritiques: Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Kevin Lazzari | Special to the Fitzhugh Are you a fan of the “Ghostbusters” franchise? If you liked the original two movies, “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” should be on your watchlist. It follows the storyline from the two made in the ‘80s. The gap from “Ghostbuster 2” made in 1989 and “Afterlife” (2021) is substantial for a sequel. I cannot think offhand of how many sequels there are with that kind of time diff ...

Kevin Kritiques: Jane the Virgin

Kevin Lazzari | Special to the Fitzhugh Have you ever watched a Telenovela? Until recently, I had never even heard of the word Telenovela. By definition, a Telenovela is a soap opera produced primarily in Latin America. A friend recommended I watch "Jane the Virgin" on Netflix and I thought I would give it a try. Occasionally, I like to step out of my comfort zone and watch something different in a genre th ...

Kevin Kritiques: Stillwater

Kevin Lazzari | Special to the Fitzhugh Have you ever wondered if the movie you watched is based on a true story? I thought “Stillwater” was based on real events, so I decided to do a little research. It turns out the makers were inspired by the Amanda Knox story but did not follow what actually happened. I was shocked that “Stillwater” was not based on reality and was just a loose interpretation. Hollywood ...

Kevin Kritiques: The Matrix

Kevin Lazzari | Special to the Fitzhugh In 1999, “The Matrix” hit theatres around the world, and life was never the same. Audiences would question their own reality. “The Matrix” was more than your typical sci-fi movie. It had elements that were never explored in any movie in existence. To simplify the plot, the writers are telling us that we are trapped in a simulation, and we are batteries for the machine ...
