    ★½

    How you make this movie so poor is beyond my comprehension. You have half your work done for you already: an incredible story. It’s a film that does a disservice to it’s main character and the story behind her by focusing on all the wrong elements. 

    Try again in a decade. Maybe a mini series, I don’t know. I’ll give Cynthia Erivo credit for doing everything she possibly can with what she’s given. 

    It’s just not enough

    ★★★

    This one is really interesting. Parts I loved, parts I hated. I truly don’t know how the parts with the recast original characters got past a studio. Those moments are abysmal. 

    But by God is Ewan McGregor still the king of making bad dialogue sound good.

    Scarlett Johansson gets an Emmy Nomination for Directing on Halloween despite the fact that the nominations come out in July. I thought that was funny. 

    She’s also definitely had her fair share of shoe tying in the last two months

    Takes a little bit to get into but once you discover where this film is going, it really manages to strike you in all the right ways
