    KARL, CLOSE YOUR MOUTH!

    I had to remind myself to do so throughout the further adventures of Miles Morales aka Spider-Man. His second outing in the suit is a staggering work of art that uses all facets of filmmaking to deliver a pure cinematic experience. It propels what an animated film can do into the stratosphere. Am I being hyperbolic? I think not. It’s truly a work of artistic genius. 

    It’s not only a visual feast but has a better…

    ★★★½

    Shudder just dropped what at first glance might seem like just another flick about the dangers of social media and the woe-is-me trial and tribulations of being a well-off influencer. While it does have all those things, some surprises are in store and it's absolute FIRE!

    The film opens with an influencer, who is of course named Madison, traveling solo in Thailand. The beautiful setting, a pulsating soundtrack and slick filmmaking insured my immediate interest. As is often the case,…

    ★★★½

    Being a man or being a woman has nothing to do with your genitalia. It has to do with what's right here in your heart and what's in your mind.

    Robert Eads
    (1945 - 1999)

    A moving portrait of a transgender man and the support system around him. Robert Eads, who was born Barbara Eads, has one year to live. He was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and notes the irony of the only female part about him is what's killing him.…

    ★★½

    Composer John Barry’s score almost fooled me into thinking this was better than the rather basic erotic-90s flick, with a provocative hook, that it is.
     
    Would you be down with your spouse spending an intimate night with a stranger for a million bucks? What if it’s someone that on the surface appears to more worthy than your sad-sack self?
     
    This could make for a thrilling, if not at least guilty pleasure, viewing, especially considering director Adrian Lyne is…

    ★★½

    Immediately dated (pandemic jokes), too clever by half and indulgently overlong, Rian Johnson's follow-up to the refreshingly clever and entertaining Knives Out, fails to live up to the hype made by festival audiences. Or it could just be me? Chances are I'm an outlier here but I couldn't wait for it to end.

    While there are plenty of funny moments and the actors do well with what they're given, spending two plus hours with most of these characters is a…

    Very distasteful but not in a good or even offensive way rather an eye-rolling one.
    There’s an apparently “meet-cute” at a grocery store that I found cringy. Then there’s the tired Black best friend trope (make her Lesbian for bonus points). While chatting with her needy white friend, who tells her she got laid, she yells “get that D” while at work. Oh how hilarious. I’m just not on this film’s wavelength. I found the humor, shall I say, hate…
