The Oscars are less than a week away! It’s been a long year and a long awards season. I actually haven’t reviewed most of these nominees. Apologies about that – it’s hard balancing writing reviews and having a full time job. But we have a pretty good line up this year.Continue reading “2021 Oscar Predictions”
Hopefully 2021 things will start going back to normal, but it will be a slow process. Cinemas are still mostly closed around the world, so a lot of these movies will be seen at home. And as many of you know, a lot of 2020 movies were pushed back to 2021 and 2022, so some films that were on my Most Anticipated Movies of 2020 list will re-appear here.
First up, here’s some honorable mentions: Black Widow, Eternals, Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It, Blonde, Don’t Look Up, and EncantoContinue reading “Most Anticipated Movies of 2021”
2020 is finally over! It’s been quite the year to say the least. A lot of movies were pushed back, so my top 10 list this year consists of some smaller fair. I also haven’t had the chance to fully review each movie on this list now that I have a full time job, so I will provide a mini-review for those.
First up, here’s some Honorable Mentions: The Glorias, Wolfwalkers, and Palm SpringsContinue reading “Top 10 Movies of 2020”
This year’s Oscars are less than a month away and with the nominations announced I decided to share who I think will win the golden statues this year. I will only be covering a few of the major categories. As of now, I have not seen these films nominated in acting categories: Bombshell, Harriet, Judy, Richard Jewell, and The Two Popes.
Here is a link for the full list of nominations, but I have listed the nominations for categories I am covering.
Let’s begin.Continue reading “2020 Oscar Predictions”
2020 is year and with it comes another promising year of films. I’m particularly excited since there are a great number of women-led films both in front of and behind the camera in 2020. Since it’s early in the year, none of the smaller, independent films are really known until the Sundance Film Festival later this month, so this list will mainly be bigger films. I will also do a Top 10 of 2019 list, but that won’t be up until I have seen 1917, which is a major awards contender this year.
So here is what I’m most looking forward to at the moment for the upcoming year with some honorable mentions that go out to Godzilla vs. Kong, Eternals, and Bob’s Burgers who didn’t quite make the list.
(500) Days of Summer surrounds Tom as he fantasizes about a girl named Summer and starts a romance with her. But things end up going wrong, and Tom is heartbroken, angry, convinced he will never move on from Summer and that she was the one for him.
Hey guys! I’m out of town so you may not see any new reviews for awhile, but I’ll try my best to get Deadpool 2 and Solo reviews out as soon as I can (which will probably around the end of the month)

This is a different post than usual, it’s not a review, but a post that will hopefully start some discussion. Last night I discovered some video essays about women in film and in the public eye – specifically Megan Fox and Stephanie Meyer, the author of Twilight. Here’s a link to both video essays by Lindsay Ellis:
As today has gone on, I keep seeing that more and more women are speaking up about their encounters with Harvey Weinstein. Here is a list of actresses and other women he has sexually harassed so far: Tomi-Ann Roberts, Laura Madden, Rosanna Arquette, Katherine Kendall, Liza Campbell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mira Sorvino, Ashley Judd, Judith Godrèche, Rose McGowan, Asia Argento, Angelina Jolie, Zelda Perkins, Romola Garai, Dawn Dunning, Lucia Stoller, Lauren Sivan, Louisette Geiss, Emma de Caunes, Jessica Barth, Cara Delevigne, Emily Nestor, Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, and Lauren O’Connor. That is a total of 24 women that we KNOW of and these incidents of harassment have been going on now for about 33 YEARS. This is simply unacceptable.
Male actors have also spoken out condemning Weinstein’s actions such as Ben Affleck and Matt Damon (Weinstein gave them their big break). It should be noted that Ben Affleck failed to comment on his brother’s, Casey Affleck, alleged sexual harassment of women. Rose McGowan fired back on Ben Affleck saying that once she informed him of Weinstein’s harassment, he said, “Goddamnit! I told him to stop doing that!” meaning that Affleck was well aware of Weinstein’s predatory behavior before it was made public. In his statement, Matt Damon said, “But, now, as the father of four daughters, this is the kind of sexual predation that keeps me up at night.” Okay people, can we stop using the “as a husband/as a father of daughters” line please? You are insinuating that only as a husband or father that you care about this type of sexual behavior. That you only care about those close to you receiving these unwanted advances, not women in general, which is A PROBLEM!Continue reading “Now Let’s Talk About Hollywood Sexism…”
