  • Zack Snyder's Justice League

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★★

    I loved "Zack Snyder's Justice League." Those are words I never thought I'd say but here I am in the year of our Lord 2021 proclaiming my admiration for this movie. That's not to say it is faultless. There are many issues with this movie. To start, there still is an issue with objectifying women which is most present in the Amazon scenes and the entire character of Iris West. I will never understand why the Amazon's went from being…

  • Derek DelGaudio's In & of Itself

    Derek DelGaudio's In & of Itself

    ★★★★½

    It's been a while since a stage show has brought me to tears and I wasn't expecting it to be Derek Delgaudio. The magician and storyteller is an expert showman. He knows how to work an audience but most importantly he knows how to touch the heart. His exploitation into what makes us unique shouldn't work. It should feel cliche or even cheesy but he makes it an amazing experience.
    Frank Oz captured several nights of this show and instead…

  • Quo Vadis, Aida?

    Quo Vadis, Aida?

    ★★★★½

    The final film nominated for Best International Feature that I had to see before the upcoming Oscars. "Quo Vadis, Aida" is a film I don't think I could watch again because of how horrifying the subject matter is. Writer/Director Jasmila Zbanic doesn't have to show how violent the Srebrenica Massacre, it led to the death of over 8,000 men. Instead, she focuses on the constant fear and anxiety many felt in this time. How even the hope of shelter at…

  • Better Days

    Better Days

    ★★★½

    A brutal depiction of bullying and the need to help those suffering from it. Somehow all of this gets buried in a second half that feels like it's from a mystery thriller. But it feels like everything ends where it should. Not to mention the stellar performances from the two leads. A worthy nominee in the International Feature race.

    I would let Andrew Scott hook a bomb to me.

  • Soul

    Soul

    ★★★★½

    Here comes Pete Doctor and Pixar again forcing parents all over the world to have uncomfortable conversations with their kids. The story of "Soul" fits right at home with the likes of "Inside Out" and "Coco" when it comes to emotionally upsetting animated films. The story is that of Joe Gardner a jazz musician finds himself dead and leads another soul to find their spark as he seeks a way to return to his body on Earth. Everything I just…
