Well that was pretty damn good. I went with three much older people, two in their golden years. All of whom have very little exposure to Star Wars and one of which practically none. They all loved it. I really wanted to know what watching a movie like this would be like if you don't come at it with the nostalgic baggage that some of us have been carrying around since 1977. That nostalgic baggage is what kept me from enjoying anything about the prequels other than Darth Maul having a...

I've had to sleep on this a couple of nights before figuring out how to write or talk about this movie. Is it this year's Manchester By the Sea? ...maybe. There's so much subject matter to dodge talking about since I would never want to colour anyone's viewing of this movie. i went in completely dark. It's basically the story of what life is like for a kid growing up, living in discount inn(s) close to Disney World, where her mom can barely afford to live full-time. So it's a mix of what...

Pixar pulls off another paradox in delivering a hilarious tear-jerker. Took 6-yr old Emily to this and she loved it, as did I. It's visually stunning and the music is great. Really tough subject matter to tackle and they did so in a beautiful way for kids to interpret and understand. There was this massive short film on Frozen beforehand that seemed to go on forever and felt a little rushed and easy when it came to forcing songs. This led me to better appreciate the use of music in Coco....

How has this movie not even made $90 million yet? Is it the length? I am so happy I didn't miss the chance to see this in theatres. I think my biggest takeaway is how surprisingly affecting it was. I couldn't get enough of the scenes between K (Gosling) and Joi (great supporting performance by Ana de Armas). The 2nd scene in the movie felt like almost 20 minutes of just setting this up, and at the time i found it surprising to spend this much screentime on developing this sub-plot, but it sure paid...

Wow. Where did this come from? I honestly walked into this thinking this was an early biopic of Lady Bird Johnson. Last year around this time, i cluelessly walked into Moonlight expecting something completely different as well. I think this must be the very best way to walk into a movie because this is twice that i've been totally blown away. It's similar in some ways to last year's Edge of Seventeen except instead of just supplying the ups, this one also gets into the downs really effectively. In fact, depression is explored on many...
