    Big Gold Brick

    You have Oscar Isaac, Andy Garcia, Megan Fox, Lucy Hale, Emory Cohen and Shiloh Fernandez headling the cast. On paper, I'm sure this cerebral comedy would have looked great and a chance to jump on something ambitious and weird. The last time I witnessed a movie this bonkers was booed right out of Cannes.

    Pray Away

    ★★

    As a gay man who grew up with a religious mother. Documentaries about the plight of LGBTQIA+ people will never not be upsetting to witness. The fact that documentaries like this still need to be made shows you how far we have to go as a race. Showing simple compassion and acceptance for one another. I went into Pray Away expecting a hard-hitting expose about gay conversion therapy, and I left somewhat disappointed with the final results. I'm sure many…
