    Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

    ★★★★★

    We all needed this movie in 2018. 
    We all needed a feel good movie that literally everyone can enjoy. 
    It was so well done and I’m beyond happy with how they wrote this one. It pulls at the heartstrings but offers comfort in family relationships. It’s a beautiful film about adventure and growth.

It was a simple story but the way it was executed was far from simple. Each shot, each frame was…

    Prisoners

    ★★★★★

    Prisoners premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and it has been getting amazing reviews. I went to go watch it opening night and even though the idea of a 2 and a half hour movie might turn you off, it was completely worth it. Prisoners tells a story about these two families who come together to celebrate Thanksgiving and their two youngest daughters get abducted. From my knowledge prior to the film I believed it was a true story…
