The Big Sick

The Big Sick (Review) I saw “The Big Sick” on Saturday. It’s my first film to see in a movie theater since Oscar season. This isn’t because there aren’t any good movies that have come out – there are many that I hope to catch up on – finishing my undergraduate got in the way. I digress. One review I ...

20th Century Women

20th Century Women (Review) There were two films in particular this season I felt were ripped off, for very different reasons, however. “Silence,” was a cinematographic masterpiece.

Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures (Review) In the week since seeing “Hidden Figures” I have two things that I can’t seem to erase from my head: Pharrell’s song “Runnin’” from the movie’s soundtrack and Taraji P. Henson making her final run from the West Area Computers to the control room for Friendship 7. Maybe it was their ...
