    Season of the Witch

    ★★

    Honestly.... not as bad as I was expecting.

     Yes, it’s tacky, the CGI is AWFUL, and there are enough cheesy one-liners to have you roll your eyes out of your skull. But it’s fun! I’m not going to say that this movie was great by any means, but it was relatively entertaining with a few decent action scenes (the bridge scene!), and a few surprising twists and turns.

    The Earth Is Blue as an Orange

    ★★★★

    Had the pleasure of catching a screening of this at Sundance, which was followed by a Q&A with the director Iryna Tsilyk and one of the subjects of the film, Mira, which provided even more insight into the film and its content (even in spite of some really bad questions).

    The Earth is Blue as an Orange centers around the Trofymchuks, a family who lives in a small border town in Ukraine that has found itself in the crossfire of…
