My thoughts on films, television shows, live shows and more.

Review: The Broken Hearts Gallery (2020)

From the outset, The Broken Hearts Gallery is a winning formula

Review: Downhill (2020)

The premise of Downhill takes after Ruben Ostlund’s Force Majeure, telling the story of a couple on a family ski vacation that sees their relationship come to a breaking point after a certain event shapes what each other consider important in the face of a crisis.

Review: Onward (2020)

If you’re talking Pixar, you’re talking high quality, heartfelt, premium animation with a standard unsurmounted by other animated feature films.

Review: Honey Boy (2020)

It’s hard to make a movie about your life without seeming overly indulgent or seeking empathy at every turn.

Review: A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood (2020)

My first peek into this American TV legend from 1968 to 2001 was in the documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? which took a peek at the man, Fred Rogers and his life before and during his hugely successful TV program Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.

Review: Bombshell (2020)

Bombshell’s story is a perfectly manicured version of sexual harassment allegations against Fox New CEO and Chairman Roger Ailes.

Review: Spies in Disguise (2019)

I attended a screening of Spies in Disguise, a Blue Sky Studios – maker of Ice Age franchise and Rio – I went in with low expectations. And with such a lazy title, I expected the worst.

Review: Jojo Rabbit (2019)

Jojo Rabbit, based on the novel Caging Skies by Christian Leunens, is directed and written by Taika Waititi, and is most likely the first Nazi comedy that’s as subversive as it is boundary-pushing.
