Servant Season 2 Non-Spoiler Review | Shyamalan Back At His Very Best

Servant Season 2 Non-Spoiler Review | Shyamalan Back At His Very Best

Servant is undoubtedly one of the strangest and utterly mesmerizing series you’ll ever watch and season two finally begins shedding light on so many of the questions haunting us from the first. Thanks for listening to our pleas, AppleTV+! Unrelenting from the first episode to the last. There is no other show like this anywhere. Toby Kebbel in Servant The most perplexing family is back and just when you think they’re starting to move towards healthy reality, delusion and ignorance pull them right back into a world of heightened emotions and pain.

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Season 2 Review | A Network Musical Sitcom Worth The Wait

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Season 2 Review | A Network Musical Sitcom Worth The Wait

Much like the first, the second season of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is infectious from the very start. It has been while since I’ve been able to turn off my brain and just enjoy a network TV show but this one makes it easy, especially if you have any affinity at all for musicals. Pictured: (l-r) John Clarence Stewart as Simon, Jane Levy as Zoey Clarke, Skylar Astin as Max Zoey is a young woman who discovers one day that she has the ability to hear people’s inner most thoughts as full musical compositions of multi-generational popular songs.

The Midnight Sky Review | Clooney’s Best… Direction

The Midnight Sky Review | Clooney’s Best… Direction

The Midnight Sky surprises in the best possible way. More than a drama, this is an experience that truly pays off! Felicity Jones as Sully and David Oyelowo as Commander Tom Adewole. Cr. Philippe Antonello/NETFLIX ©2020 The year is 2049. Augustine, a sick scientist who has chosen to live his last days alone, is forced to face the frozen elements of Greenland with a stranded little girl to attempt to inform a group of astronauts of the unfortunate mysterious apocalyptic conditions the world currently finds itself in before they come back home. This was an absolute delight! An incredibly engaging…

Soul Review | An Unpopular Opinion

Soul Review | An Unpopular Opinion

Soul thrives in it’s diversity and in the music of Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, which elevates the heart of the film along with the jazz compositions of Jon Baptiste… and if that was all it took to make a great film I would be exclaiming that Pixar has done it yet again, but it is not and THEY have not because these can’t save what bad writing has ruined. Tina Fey & Jamie Foxx in Soul(2020) In Soul a musician who has lost his passion for music is transported out of his body and must find his way back…

Promising Young Woman Review | A Kick in the Balls

Promising Young Woman Review | A Kick in the Balls

Divisive and necessary, Promising Young Woman is a rollercoaster ride full of humor, jaw dropping moments and a twist that still has me traumatized days later. A message that absolutely needs to be told but one that will surely be attacked by toxic masculinity and machismo as the film does not try to soften the blow it deals to the male ego. The message: all men are a problem. Carey Mulligan stars as "Cassandra" in director Emerald Fennell’s PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN, a Focus Features release.

Small Axe: Education Review

Small Axe: Education Review

A heartbreaking tale about injustice and systemic racism in its most insidious form-- that form which affects the youth and tries to sweeten the bitter taste of oppression by disguising it as a “good deed”. Kenyah Sandy as Kingsley Smith (left) and Nigel Boyle as Mr. Hamley (right) in "Education." Photo Credit: Will Robson-Scott / Amazon Prime Video. Kingsley is a 12 year old boy with dreams of being an astronaut who gets sent to a "special school" after being disruptive in class. This school, they say, is more suited to his needs. Kingsley soon learns that this new school…

The Wilds Review | An Ode to the Strength, Resourcefulness, and Tenacity of Women

The Wilds Review | An Ode to the Strength, Resourcefulness, and Tenacity of Women

The Wilds is so much more than a story about the modern-day young woman at their worst struggling to survive… It’s an ode to the strength, resourcefulness, and tenacity of women who are thrust into a trial by fire that will, likely, reveal that their biggest threat isn’t the impending doom facing them on the desolate island where they lay stranded, but rather the everyday pressure waiting for them back home. Pictured (L-R): Jenna Clause (Martha Blackburn), Shannon Berry (Dot Campbell), Mia Healey (Shelby Goodkind), Reign Edwards (Rachel Reid), Sophia Ali (Fatin Jadmani), Sarah Pidgeon (Leah Rilke) A group of…

Small Axe: Alex Wheatle Review

Small Axe: Alex Wheatle Review

Alex Wheatle is a heartfelt tale that will frustrate you to your core because it is, undeniably, incomplete. A true story depicting the life of award winning writer Alex Wheatle, from his childhood through his formative years as a young adult trying to find his way in Brixton. Sheyi Cole as Alex Wheatle (center, black leather jacket) in "Alex Wheatle." Photo Credit: Will Robson-Scott / Amazon Prime Video. Listen, I love what Steve McQueen has achieved by making the Small Axe series. Five stories, all true or inspired by such, about the struggles of the black West Indie community in…

Half Brothers Review | A Fun Tale Muddled by Waring Tones

Half Brothers Review | A Fun Tale Muddled by Waring Tones

Half Brothers is a fun take on the road trip narrative that simultaneously tackles some very serious issues plaguing immigrants in the U.S. today. This fact, unfortunately, muddles the tone of the film and causes it to bounce back and forth between absurdist humor and a heartbreaking social injustice drama rather than living in a happy middle ground. I found myself both amused and emotionally rocked by it but neither ever felt like they belonged in the same film, though I’m sure they could. Luis Gerardo Mendez (left) stars as "Renato" and Connor Del Rio (right) stars as "Asher" in…

I Am Greta Review | A Message That Transcends Its Rating

I Am Greta Review | A Message That Transcends Its Rating

“My name is Greta Thunberg and I want you to panic…” Powerful words that resonate in my mind as so many of hers do. More than a documentary, I Am Greta is a warning against inaction that just so happens to be wrapped in a passionate, brave, and wise teenage package. I AM GRETA -- The story of Greta Thunberg, the Swedish schoolgirl who, at 16, is leading the global school strike for action on climate change. Greta Thunberg, shown. (Photo By: Courtesy of Hulu) The best thing about this doc by filmmaker Nathan Grossman is that it grants us…
