  • The Power of the Dog

    The Power of the Dog


    Glad I had a chance to catch this in a theater.

  • tick, tick...BOOM!

    tick, tick...BOOM!


    Pookey! It's like they are singing directly to us. I am so happy I had the opportunity to see this in a theatre full of people. It was everything I wanted and more!!!

  • Passing



    Why isn't there more Oscar Buzz for Tessa Thompson? She was absolutely  magical.

  • This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection

    This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection


    I wish I had had an opportunity to see this on a big screen. We are given a visual feast to accompany the gut-wrenching tale of loss.

  • Dear Evan Hansen

    Dear Evan Hansen


    Sorry haters, but I really liked it.

  • Ema



    A wholly unique and terrifying film.

  • Annette



    I'm singing a song. A song about the film Annette. It is a song. A very strange song. It is a song. Like no song you've heard. Adam Driver sings one long chaotic song. I like this song. It's maybe a little bit long. But I still like this song. A baby puppet sings songs after Marion is gone. It's a little bit mad. Oh so grand. It is a song.

  • CODA



    I needed those happy tears today.

  • Nine Days

    Nine Days


    Zazie, Zazie, Zazie Beetz.
    A Bicycle Ride.
    The Final Monologue.

  • Pig



    "He's a Buddhist."

  • Shiva Baby

    Shiva Baby


    I couldn’t stop smiling (or look away) from the chaos. Such fun!

  • Minari



    Minari is Wonderful, Wonderful!”
    Before we can run we have to walk and before that we have to fall. A tender and loving story of resilience.
    I will be crossing my fingers until Oscar nomination morning that Yeri Han sneaks into that 5th slot for Best Actress.
