The Favourite

We were so excited about The Favourite.  We have been waiting for it since it’s premiere in Venice, where Olivia Colman won the Volpi Cup for Best Actress.  We sat down at the Alamo Drafthouse Cedars and they even had a mini menu with items inspired by the film – we were thrilled.  Then it started.  […]

Instant Family

I will admit that we went to see Instant Family ready to totally pan it.  The trailer made it look more stupid than heartfelt.  We felt that it may be just a product of the media machine. We were pleasantly surprised.  It did have a couple of scenes that went a bit too far, but […]

Front Runner

We saw The Front Runner on day 10 of the 2018 Toronto Film Festival.  The screening took place at the campus theater at Ryerson University.  Touted as a political thriller, we definitely were not on the edge of our seats.  Our view into the media’s apprehension in reporting the affair is interesting.  Previously, the press […]

Green Book – Mussels with Linguine

For you Italians, you probably recognized the traditional Dinner of the Seven Fishes that Dolores was serving on Christmas Eve.  This is a great recipe if you are going the extra mile.  If not, one of the funniest scenes in Green Book involved Kentucky Fried chicken.  A bucket of KFC popcorn nuggets would also be […]
