What A Difference Four Years Make

Idea

As the Democratic Convention approaches, the theme may have been altered from CHANGE "Yes We Can" to FORWARD "We Thought We Could Have", or "Let's Try Once Again"...etc.

Four years later, that energy, excitement, buzz and optimism that we saw during the last democratic convention has apparently faded and it will be interesting to see what organizers to this week's Democratic Party Convention will come up with to charge up the delegates.

Fat Cat On Thin Ice

Problem

Christie knew all about 'Bridgegate', according to prosecutors who say they will prove it. The over wait and see overweight fat cat apparently knew in advance about a plan to shut down George Washington Bridge lanes as an act of political retribution say, prosecutors.

Meanwhile, CC top insists he knows 'nothing'. Will Humpty dumpty fall off The Donald's wall?

Attraction

Not every movie critic is the same, but ours is one of the best. City Island Images is proud to present our major motion picture picks for last year. We hope you take time to watch these films and enjoy them as much as our fabulous film critic did.

Inside Llewyn Davis -- A surreal journey set within the folk music scene of the 1960s Village. Arguably the year's best film, and one of the Coen Brothers' best, it will surely be remembered for its score and the fine actors who sing those songs many of you remember well.
