Sundance Festival Movie Review – R#J

I’ve taken a vacation from Facebook.  Which makes it ironic that one of my favorite films from this year’s Sundance festival is drenched in social media.  The classic story of Romeo and Juliet is told through text messages, Spotify playlists, FaceTime conversations, YouTube videos, search engine results, Facebook DM’s, and Instagram stories. It seems like […]

Jill’s Top 10 Movies of 2020

Well, let’s start by saying 2020 sucked, movie-wise. At least in the theatrical releases.
