If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s actually really good advice that has worked for Disney (the laziest studio in the West) in the past. Beauty and the Beast wasn’t tampered with much when they brought it to live action film. Jungle Book did fairly well. Even Alice In Wonderland (with Tim Burton directing) […]

One of the hardest things about losing a loved one, is the feeling of strangling, lingering grief and loss at, not only things you used to do together, but things you had planned to do together. Do you go ahead and do them alone? With someone else? Are the things you used to do together […]

The first thing to be said about the movie Unplanned is the ridiculous rating. There are no swear words, no violence, and though there is a lot of blood in parts of the movie, it’s no worse than your average PG-13 action film. The rating is a joke and a testament to how stupid the […]

The Review: Ugh. There is a key, universal, direction to writers of any media and it is this: SHOW don’t TELL. This movie is a crap-ton of telling. It starts out awesome. The story kicks along nicely, and although the chemistry between Brie Larson and Jude Law seems acidic, or rather like two magnets of […]

I said in week one that the profound absence of my late husband felt like a lost limb–a phantom pain that was hard to explain at the time. The pain in the first few weeks and months is constantly exposed and magnified by every day actions. Things as simple as going to the bathroom, taking […]

I don’t understand why Marvel made so many bad decisions in regards to Captain Marvel. Their trailers were horrible. They went out of their way to pick fights with fans, so much so that I didn’t go and see the movie even to write a review on it. I didn’t want to be a part […]

My experience: I remember reading, in my quest to figure out my own grief, that you could cut your crying in half if you just set the goal to give yourself some set amount of time to cry. I found this concept very strange at the time. I remember being at my desk about three […]
