‘Goonies’ still a classic

One of my favorite movies as a child, "The Goonies," is playing at Film Streams until Dec. 1. "The Goonies" is produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Richard Donner.

‘The Grey’ a brutal and intense thriller

Admirers of the original 1981 flick written and directed by Steve Gordon might want to steer clear of the recent remake of "Arthur." No longer filled with subtle humor, this rom-com remake is evidence of a clear generation gap.
