Digging into rarely seen footage, family videos, unheard audio cuts and other rarities, this retelling of the short life of Amy Winehouse points out those who shine twice as bright burn out twice as fast; a tragedy to the music industry overall. Careful and thoughtful insight offers a new found respect for the artist often thought to be a brash train wreck of substance abuse, poor manners, and an unkempt bed. Worthy of your attention and a fine tribute to an artist snuffed out way before her prime. Amy is rated R. Amy

Since the dawn of time tiny yellow creatures known as Minions have walked the earth. Driven by a need to serve the most aggressive or mean spirited boss they can find, the Minions have traversed centuries helping in the evil quests of their superiors; now, after a rough stretch of failures and years of isolation the Minions are ready to re-enter the world. Minions Stuart, Kevin, and Bob are released to the world in search of a new big boss, Super villain Scarlet Overkill (Sandra Bullock) might just be the the boss they’re looking for; but just how far will her plans of world domination actually materialize?minions Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, this overreaching attempt at fleshing out a 90+ minute screenplay from about 20 minutes of actual plot misses many points on the way up as also the way down. And, sadly the comedic hits per minute count only manages to return on investment marginally; rather, a return to the same wellspring of ideas proves to work on only one aptitude level, low, mom and dad you’re bound to be less enthused with this one, young audiences on the other hand will eat this up. Pass. Minions is rated PG.
