Jill’s Top 10 Movies of 2020

Well, let’s start by saying 2020 sucked, movie-wise. At least in the theatrical releases. With the pandemic keeping us inside, theaters have been (mostly) closed all year — tough for film fanatics like us. The trickle of new wide release films hasn’t provided much in the way of outstanding offerings: I’ve had to fill in […]

Indie Movie Review – Happy Face

Happy Face is an awesome film. I just had to get that off my chest right from the get go.  It’s not a laugh a minute rib tickler, it’s not an edge of the seat thriller, and it’s not a mind bending thought provoker. It’s a drama about the lives of a group of people […]

Classic Movie Rewatch Review – Trading Places

I’ve lost count of the number of times that I’ve watched Trading Places over the years, and not always as a Christmas film. It’s a comedy first and foremost, then it’s a social satire, and only then is it a holiday film. For the sake of the half dozen or so people who haven’t seen it, […]

Rewatch Review – Love Actually (A Brit Perspective)

Back in October we were talking about articles for the run up to Christmas (yes, this stuff is all actually planned!) and the idea of a rewatch review of Love Actually was mentioned, especially a British take on the film. This took me a little by surprise, as I can’t help thinking that anything written by […]

The Film Legacy of Sean Connery

This weekend I had one of those “aww” moments when you get some sad news. Not so sad as to knock you sideways, like the death of a parent or a favourite dog, but sad enough to give you a moment’s pause to think back and reflect. That moment was when I heard that Sir […]

Golden Man’s Top 10 Movies of 2020

How do you choose the top 10 movies of 2020? I wish I knew an easy way to choose the top 10 movies of 2020.  But the truth is it’s like trying to pick your favorite child:  there are so precious few of them.  Looking at the “Movies Seen 2020” list on my phone depresses […]

Movie Review – News of the World

Tom Hanks is at it again. News Of The World was magnificent. I’m not sure if there is a role out there that Hanks can’t master. He fit the part better than little Forrest Gump’s shoes fit. It’s a slow moving movie, but for a very good reason. They immersed you into the Old West. […]

Indie Movie Review: HAM – A Musical Memoir

If you’re like me, you’ve missed live theater during the pandemic.  You watched Hamilton and you’re looking forward to Netflix’s adaptation of The Prom.  May I suggest a one-man show that may not be on your radar yet?  It’s called HAM: A Musical Memoir and it’s playing in virtual theaters now.  Starting January 7, it […]

Movie Review – Let Him Go

  Let Him Go took my heart, ripped it out of my chest, and let a stampede of horses crush it until it was unidentifiable as anything human. As I was sitting through the credits, my mind was reeling with emotions that were so carnal and brutal that it took me a moment to realize, […]
