    MARY AND THE WITCH’S FLOWER

    MARY AND THE WITCH’S FLOWER REVIEWED “Mary and The Witch’s Flower” feels like Studio Ghibli, but it’s not. Playing like a recent string of girl-focused anime projects, the film feels a bit cliche. Attraction to neighborhood boys, absentee parents and precocious cats introduce us to this world.

    EDDIE THE EAGLE

    EDDIE THE EAGLE REVIEWED “Eddie the Eagle” is the weird kind of biopic. The film takes about 15% of a true story and then makes up a film around it. Eddie the Eagle did exist and he traveled overseas to learn ski jumping. He was a persistent kid...
