    A Man Called Otto

    ★★★★

    'A Man Called Otto' aims for the heart strings and then plucks every one in almost the sweetest fashion. It doesn't try to play it cool it's trying to make you cry and will succeed unless you try shut it out. It's the film it wants to be and one I gladly shared with my family.

    Hanks is wonderful and Mariana Trevino is a revelation. Between this and last year's criminally underappreciated 'Finch' Hanks is putting out some of his…

    Really enjoyed this. Maybe more than I should.
    Found the endless shifting distribution of power/wealth quite captivating. It feels very fitting that both my daughters are reading 'Lord of the Flies' as I watch it. One of the bigger surprises of the year for me.

    Black Panther: WakandaForever  picks up the pieces after tragic loss of Chadwick Bosemon and moves forward, both the characters and the franchise, with the greatest of respect.. Coogler pulls off the band-aid right out of the gate & allows the healing to begin through an emotional journey of grief and transformation. Strong performances & top-tier villain help. Great action, stunning visual effects, & A+++ score. The smaller, intimate moments work best to keep the film's heart where it needs to be as the action has it pounding out of your chest. Perfectly sets up the BP future very well.

An investigator hires and 80+ year-old man name Sergio to be his eyes and ears inside the home. What we find can certainly be considered criminal, but it is not what you would expect.

    This heartwarming and poignant exploration of aging and loneliness is…
