    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I was really disappointed in this movie. First, the positive: the acting was phenomenal all across the board. Lupita deserves an Oscar for her performance.

    Now the negative (double warning here; if you haven’t seen this movie and don’t want it spoiled, walk away. If you have seen this movie and loved it, I don’t want to yuck your yum, so read on at your own disgression). 

    Ok, I maybe mis-managed my expectations with this one. After being blown away…

  • White Christmas

    White Christmas

    Ok, if this is a Christmas movie, then no one ever gets to say Die Hard isn’t one. This is a movie about the virtue of being loyal to your army company and they spend more time reminiscing about how wonderful the days of minstrel shows were than they spend being Christmas-y.
