You know I am unabashedly biased when it comes to Kate Winslet movies because, well, she is the best actress on the planet and can do no wrong. But I can say with full confidence that despite the bleak subject matter in BLACKBIRD, it is actually one of the best films I have seen at… Continue reading TIFF Movie Review: Blackbird
I CARE A LOT is one of my first surprise hit movies of the year. Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, the film is incredibly entertaining, a mixture of jet black comedy and intoxicating thriller.
Mulan is a beautiful film, led by a female director, starring a talented, diverse cast. Show Hollywood we want more of this!
Man oh man, BOYS STATE is quite a ride. I should have known what I was getting into with such a politically-charged documentary. But I didn't know just how invested I would get in the documentary's subjects, particularly Steven Garza. And by invested I mean hysterically sobbing at the end of the movie. I won't… Continue reading Movie Review: Boys State
JAWS did to swimming in the ocean what THE RENTAL does to staying in Airbnbs. This horror-thriller, co-written and directed by Dave Franco, is one of the genre's best of the year... just be prepared to go into your next vacation rental with a totally different mindset. And by mindset I mean checking the entire… Continue reading Movie Review: The Rental
THE OLD GUARD is one of the surprise hits of the year with an original script, diverse cast, and thrilling fight scenes. And why am I surprised when the movie has two amazing women at the helm?! QUEEN Charlize Theron, who also produced the movie, goes full Imperator Furiosa/Atomic Blonde, kicking ass and taking names just… Continue reading Movie Review: The Old Guard

And I can't think of a better time for Disney to release it than now, on their streaming service Disney+... not only because we are all sitting at home in quarantine, but also… Continue reading Movie Review: Hamilton
I take no pleasure in saying IRRESISTIBLE has been one of my most disappointing watches of the year. I have been looking forward to this film for weeks because its written/directed by Jon Stewart, has an awesome cast, and an admittedly funny trailer. But overall, the movie is very forgettable, with serious pacing and tone… Continue reading Movie Review: Irresistible
A SECRET LOVE is my latest underrated movie discovery, this time on Netflix. I not only wanted to highlight this documentary because it is a sweet and important watch, but also because it is Pride month and I can think of no other movie that better highlights a generational-spanning romance than this. The hook of the film… Continue reading Movie Review: A Secret Love
THE HIGH NOTE is just the kind of escapist movie you want to be watching in quarantine. It's entertaining, has great performances and songs, and is an all-around positive and fun film. Despite a late reveal in the last 30 minutes that ends the film on a shaky note, I am glad Focus decided to release… Continue reading Movie Review: The High Note
