  • The Talented Mr. Ripley

    The Talented Mr. Ripley


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

    The Talented Mr. Ripley is a film of two halves. The first half consists of Tom lying his way into Dickie's life and falling more and more in love with the man, the way he lives and the freedom his wealth allows.

    The second half begins after Dickie is killed by Tom. And our hero assumes the dead man's identity and finds ways to escape capture each and every time by manipulating, by fabricating lies on the fly. By almost…

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

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

    I wish I could say I'm just disappointed with Rise of Skywalker... but that would be an understatement. Sigh...

    This certainly feels like the end of something but not the Skywalker Saga™. It signifies the end of creativity of Star Wars, or at least that's what it feels like. This is the death of everything good about the sequel trilogy and the advancement of brand and empty nostalgia full stop. Above everything else.

    I've been so infuriated by this film,…

  • Bros



    Bros is the gay rom-com answer to Bo Burnham's Inside. Basically a white man is given a platform and spends several minutes describing how banal that is, and how we should be paying attention to other people. While Billy Eichner is certainly making an effort to not center himself in a movie attempting to represent all LGBTQIA+ people for some reason...the two leads do eventually need to fall in love. So ultimately it's about two cis white men, who are…

    Hocus Pocus 2


    I struggle to see families revisiting this one nearly as much as the original. Hocus Pocus 2 is forgettable save a charming "One Way or Another" musical number set at a Sanderson Sisters lookalike contest (what a fun idea!) Loved the audience's choreographed dancing too. It's always great to see the three witches and they shine per usual. But there's something so morbid about resurrecting this 30 year old IP for a sequel and putting so little effort into it…

    Call Me by Your Name


    I wanted to compile a list of articles, videos and editorials that helped me dig deeper into Call Me By Your Name.

    How a Little Film Touched So Many Lives. Arranged/edited/curated by Barb Mirell. A book filled with stories from people who watched the movie and were deeply effected by its power. A large variety of demographics around the world are represented. A global fanbase. Profits from the book go to The Trevor Project which provides crisis and suicide prevention…

    It Chapter Two


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

    This isn't just one of the worst movies of the year.

    It might be one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

    It pissed me off in a way that movies so rarely do. I had so many objections with the structure, the stylistic choices, the writing and the representation of this movie that it exhausted me.

    Any attempts to further unpack all my problems with It have made me want to just shut down.

    I wasn't sure if…
