    Vigil

    ★★★

    Season 2 was fine but did not hit the same as season 1. Like where was the romance?? They gave us crumbs! Also it made me miss Suranne Jones fighting for her life in that submarine. Suspense at its peak.

  • Killers of the Flower Moon

    Killers of the Flower Moon

    ★★★★½

    KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON hit much harder on second watch. The first time I was just trying to take it all in. Now I got to really sit with it and reflect. Not only is this an Osage story of survival, but it’s also holding a mirror to us as settlers and what that means. Colonialism is why I’m here. My ancestor, a French man, got on a boat in the 1600s & settled himself on a land that was…

    Drive-Away Dolls

    ★★★★

    As a queer viewer, it felt so refreshing to watch a movie like Drive-Away Dolls. Most lesbian movies are dramas that end up tearing my heart to shreds so it felt so nice to watch something pulpy and unserious. The straights have their share of trashy comedies – it’s our turn!

  • Stopmotion

    Stopmotion

    ★★★½

    Have you ever been so focused on a project that you found yourself contemplating your life choices because it’s been eight hours, and you haven’t showered or even eaten? Well, Stopmotion is a movie all about that but cranked up ten notches. Any artist can be consumed by their work, and in Robert Morgan’s captivatingly deranged feature debut, it drives the artist into madness. Blending both live-action and stop-motion animation, Morgan’s horror film sees an animator bring life to her…

    ★★★½

    In the early 2000s, the United States was rocked by one family’s legal battle. The case involved Terri Schiavo, a Florida woman who was in a permanent vegetative state after suffering a heart attack at just 26 years old. For 15 years, one family’s dispute brought the right-to-die debate into focus. Terri’s husband, Michael, fought in court to disconnect his wife’s feeding tube while her parents fought to keep her alive. In 2005, Michael won his case, and thirteen days…

  • Out of Darkness

    Out of Darkness

    ★★★½

    Horror films have taken us everywhere. From cabins in the woods to spaceships to suburban homes and beyond. Characters in the horror genre have had to go up against evil in more places than we can count. In Andrew Cumming’s Out of Darkness, that fight is taken back in time to 45,000 years ago. Set in the Stone Age, this survival horror film, written by Ruth Greenberg, follows a group of six people searching for a new land who are…

  • Exhibiting Forgiveness

    Exhibiting Forgiveness

    ★★★★

    Exhibiting Forgiveness is a literal title. In every frame of the film, there’s a small piece to a greater canvas, one whose theme surrounds a journey to forgiveness. Painter Titus Kaphar’s first feature follows an artist who takes to canvas to heal from childhood trauma, but simply describing Exhibiting Forgiveness as a drama about a tortured artist diminishes the depth of the story crafted. Each layer of paint is a new layer of emotion, leading deeper into an internal struggle for healing and the search to find freedom from the past.

This trend is also reflected in movies such as The Beekeeper, where the protagonist, played by Jason Statham, takes revenge against a criminal call center that scammed his friend, Eloise (Phylicia…
