Review: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Review “Jumanji:Welcome to the Jungle” I love Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. He’s an incredible actor who can do action and be funny. I also happen to love that he’s a big sci-fi geek. Because of him, I was totally expecting the new Jumanji film to be fun. I was concerned how well it would fit […]

Review: The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water A Modern Fairytale Do you love fairytales? I do, so much so that they were my only form of reading in my early years. Fairytales aren’t always pretty and sweet, like Disney. The true fairy tales are dark, forbidding, and teach us lessons about life. Guillermo Del Toro has mastered this […]

Review: “20th Century Women”

Review: “20th Century Women” “20th Century Women” is a semi-autographical film set in the 70’s sharing the story of a divorced older woman raising her son with the help of two other young women. The description of the characters were appealing and I am a fan of Annette Bening who plays the lead role in […]

Review: “Paterson”

Review: “Paterson” When I heard about this film, I watched the trailer and the characters looked compelling and interesting. The movie seemed to be slower paced but what I saw indicated good writing with solid acting. Instead, the film was so much more than simply good. The movie was poetry in motion and I can […]

Review: “Bad Santa 2”

Review: “Bad Santa 2” “Bad Santa” was raunchy, black humor at its darkest and yet managed to have heart. When I heard that a second movie was being made, I wondered if it would manage to retain that same dark comedy and that touch of sweetness. And it did manage to bring those same elements […]

Review: Kepler’s Dream

Review: Kepler’s Dream A Dream of a Movie I asked to see this film because when I saw the cast, I was excited. I love Kelly Hu and Holland Taylor. Sean Patrick Flanery is sweet and I really adore his work in “Boondock Saints.” Not only did the actors intrigue me, but the idea of […]

Review: Apocalypse Road

Review: Apocalypse Road Post-Apocalyptic movies can spine-tingling or thought-provoking, like “Mad Max” or “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” They can offer memorable characters and riveting plots that make you ponder the future of mankind. Apocalypse Road has an interesting premise. It focuses on two sisters who become separated and their struggle to survive. […]

Review: “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri”

Review: “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri” I love comedy, especially dark humor. When I watched the trailer for Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri, I immediately knew that if they could manage to balance the comedy with drama, this would be an incredibly funny film. It is exactly as advertised while also combining an unconventional story […]

Review: “Bad Moms Christmas”

Review: “Bad Moms Christmas” Taking Back Christmas “Bad Moms Christmas” was on my radar for a while. I knew it starred incredible actresses and after I saw the trailer, I knew I had to see it, if I got the opportunity. I’d failed to see “Bad Moms” due to lack of time but the trailer […]
