Luckily, I had the talented Coronado Studios production team on-hand - to capture every moment of this rare occurrence.
And with that, we present this step back in time - courtesy of Claudia Ludlow, General…Continue

Cinderella, Disney's new live-action take on the animated classic, is an enjoyable walk down memory lane for fans of Disney's original 1950 film. Clocking in at nearly 40 minutes longer than the animated version, the new film makes good use of the extra time, developing rudimentary layers in the simplistic characterizations seen in the animated film. For younger moviegoers, especially, the movie does a nice job of demonstrating why the characters behave the way…Continue

"Sometimes it seems to me," says Evelyn (Judi Dench) thoughtfully, "that the difference between what we want and what we fear is a width of an eyelash."
There is a pregnant pause while the actors and the audience absorb her statement.
And then Muriel (Maggie Smith) turns to her and says, "I'm so sorry, were you talking to me?"
Moments like these -- depth one second, humor the next -- fill "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel." Following on the heels…Continue
