Review: ‘Ferdinand’

An entertaining and likable bit of good cheer arriving just in time for the busy holiday movie season, the animated romp Ferdinand might be more interested with keeping the little ones engaged than giving adults much to latch onto, but that doesn’t make it any less charming and bubbly.

Review: ‘Call Me by Your Name’

One of the year’s most moving and powerful films, Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name is a nuanced, perceptive, intricately realized tale about the perils of young love, budding sexuality, and inter-generational relationships.

Review: BlackBerry Motion

Earlier this month BlackBerry launched their new mobile device, the Motion, and I've been using it ever since. Although it hasn't taken over as my main device, I have to admit that I'm not only impressed--I also really love the design, the user experience, and the features. The Blackberry Motion has some stiff competition, based on my other recent favorite devices, but it's a solid mobile phone.

Fogo Island Inn

Newfoundland in the Ford Edge | St. John’s to Fogo Island Inn

Canada is breathtaking. From coast to coast to coast, and along the border, Canada is a place of discovery, and even for those of us who live here, there are new adventures around every corner. In the fall, my family and I had a trip of a lifetime when we drove a 2017 Ford Edge from St. John's, Newfoundland to the stunning Fogo Island, and stayed at the Fogo Island Inn.
