In a summer when the world is still out of kilter, along comes a welcome distraction; a long, lost treasure in the form of a documentary directed by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson: Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not be Televised). Libby Wadman has this week’s Friday Film Review.

Tis the season for another fabulous film review panel. Rick Brough, Katy Wang, Barbra Bretz and Libby Wadman talk about the films expected for the upcoming 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

Libby Wadman, with this week’s Friday Film Review, looked at the new movie, “Midway.”   She says that it’s still possible to do a World War II epic right.

Fans of “Independence Day” will be happy to know that director Roland Emmerich is back with a new look at the battle of Midway in the film “Midway”.  This rendition, written by Wes Tooke, a Navy veteran, has nothing to do with the 1976 film of the same name, or any others, except that it depicts the battle of Midway early on in World War II.
