    My Life as a Zucchini

    ★★★★

    I have a soft spot for stop-motion and this was done in a well-balanced way to tell its bittersweet story about Zucchini. Tragically, after his mom died, a police officer helped Zucchini adjust to his new living situation at the orphanage. There, he meets the children who when through their own fair share of challenges and how they are coping. Once he gets to know the children, Zucchini learns to open up, build new relationships, bonds, and importantly to trust again.…

    Words on Bathroom Walls

    ★★★★½

    Words on Bathroom Walls is an insightful well-crafted YA romantic drama that still hits me emotionally even after a second watch. Charlie Plummer stars as Adam, a thoughtful senior in high school who suddenly been diagnosed with schizophrenia, struggles to keep his mental illness a secret while living his out his adolescent years. Acting was beautiful by Plummer (Share) and his love in interest Maya played by Taylor Russell. A talented supporting cast with Molly Parker, Walton Goggins, Beth Grant, and many others.…

    ★★★

    With a stellar cast and violence, I thought I would like this action comedy a lot more. Brad Pitt stars as Ladybug, an unlucky assassin who jumps on the world's fastest train to carry out a supposedly easy and quick mission to retrieve a briefcase. Only it’s connected to some dangerous people. Pitt was fun until he got dumber and dumber as the movie went on. I love Aaron Taylor Johnson and Brian Tyree Henry’s bantering. Joey King was okay.…

    ★★

    There’s enough atmosphere in this horror, it just falls apart when you figure out what’s going on. This stars Jemima Rooper as Laura, after a life-altering experience, she decides to return to her childhood countryside town to stay with her estranged mother Celia (Kate Dickie) but there’s something amiss. Performances were wobbly, except for Dickie. She was great. The lead was an infuriating character. I did like the visuals. It builds up slowly. Very uncomfortable, and awkward. But then the…

    The Unforgivable

    ★★½

    The Unforgivable is a drama thriller that's set in a classic hard-boiled world but could have done a lot more. Sandra Bullock stars as Ruth, a woman who served her time for a violent crime, get out early on good behavior, and renters society after 20 years. She tries to put her life back together while looking for the sister she left behind when she was incarcerated, but the world refuses to forgive her. Perfect title. We got a great performance…

    The Tender Bar

    ★★★

    George Clooney adds another movie to filmography as a director with this lighthearted coming-of-age biopic. It’s a story about J.R., played by Daniel Ranieri as younger J.R and Tye Sheridan as older, of his upbringing at his Uncle Charlie’s (Ben Affleck) bar. Affleck was fun to watch as the straight shooter uncle and had some endearing moments with J.R. who was abandoned by his father. His mother Dorothy and Grandpa played by Lily Rabe and Christopher Lloyd gave some warm performances as…
