              By Peter Covino A&E Editor/Film Critic Before moving on to this week’s  movie/DVD column, I have to say a few words about the tragic  passing of Robin Williams.

    Posted on August 8, 2014 at 4:12 pm

              By Peter Covino A&E Editor Godzilla, the 1998 version starring Matthew Broderick, was most certainly one of the worst big box office films of 1998, if not the entire decade.
