Interview with Rosamund Pike, Matthew Heineman, and Cat Colvin for A PRIVATE WAR

Oscar-nominated documentarian Matthew Heineman (CARTEL LAND) knocks it out of the park with his first dramatic feature film, A PRIVATE WAR. I first saw this film at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and have been thinking about it consistently ever since. Based on the life of Marie Colvin, an American journalist killed while reporting… Continue reading Interview with Rosamund Pike, Matthew Heineman, and Cat Colvin for A PRIVATE WAR

TIFF Movie Review: Boy Erased

BOY ERASED, written and directed by Joel Edgerton, is a great movie as much as it is an important one. Tackling the issue of conversion therapy, the film brings a very disturbing subject matter to the forefront, publicizing a horrific experience that too many LGBTQ young people have faced in their lives. Across numerous communities,… Continue reading TIFF Movie Review: Boy Erased

TIFF Movie Review: Halloween

All I want to do is gush about HALLOWEEN--the latest entry in the horror franchise (and potentially my favorite)--as well as spoil every moment that made me cheer. But don't worry, this review is as spoiler free as I can make it. Writer-director David Gordon Green and writers Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley did such… Continue reading TIFF Movie Review: Halloween

TIFF Movie Review: Teen Spirit

I told you there were going to be surprises at TIFF, and I just found the first one in TEEN SPIRIT. From first time director Max Minghella (who you probably know as Nick on HANDMAID'S TALE), TEEN SPIRIT tells the story of Violet (Elle Fanning), a 17-year-old girl who lives on Isle of Wight with… Continue reading TIFF Movie Review: Teen Spirit

TIFF Movie Review: Outlaw King

I could tell you that Chris Pine goes full frontal, has a Scottish accent and mullet, sings, and kicks major ass in OUTLAW KING. Or I could tell you the film is an epic—even more brutal—companion piece to BRAVEHEART that is sure to get the blood pumping and rip at your heartstrings! Either way, you… Continue reading TIFF Movie Review: Outlaw King

Our Most Anticipated Films at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival

I can't believe in just under a week, I will be at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF)! Last year was my first experience in Toronto, which gave me the perfect opportunity to discover the ins and outs of the Festival, attend all the screenings and press conferences I could, and most importantly meet Kate Winslet!… Continue reading Our Most Anticipated Films at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival

TIFF Movie Review: The Mountain Between Us

It's been 20 years since we last saw Kate Winslet in a romance-disaster movie…trying to survive, yet freezing to death beside a handsome love interest. But don't worry, in THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US Kate's vying for Idris Elba's affection (lucky girl)… and the "will they, won't they" does not feature our heroes attempting to fit… Continue reading TIFF Movie Review: The Mountain Between Us

Awesome Con- Biggest and Best Year Yet

Awesome Con has come to another close, and this year was its best yet. I have been going to Washington DC's largest comic convention since it first started five years ago, but this year had the best guests, most booths and artists, and (admittedly) largest crowds I have seen yet. As a comic and pop… Continue reading Awesome Con- Biggest and Best Year Yet
