    Expectations for C'mon C'mon were certainly high after Mike Mills gave us Beginners and 20th Century Women. They were definitely met and exceeded as we were blown away by this masterpiece of a film. The relationship between Joaquin Phoenix and Woody Norman is special. It explores the growing pains of parenthood and living in general with a central message - life can be hard & a grind, and that's okay.

After all, The Godfather has always been & will always be a story about one's character- your character is your…

    Don't Look Up

    ★★★★★

    Don't Look Up is a lethal mix of humor and panic & is our selection for Best Movie of 2021. McKay creates a rare film that shakes you to your core but forces you to belly laugh- although crossing back and forth over the line from humor to fear is tricky. However, the primary love of this movie comes from Leonardo DiCaprio. Leo tackles perhaps the best monologues of his career throughout the movie & when things seem to lose their center,…
