Welcome to Marwen

Welcome to Marwen is a highly anticipated, star-studded, feel good film.  The combination of live action and Augmented Reality enhances the film, but it may be too much of a good thing.  It is a very interesting way to address PTSD and drug addiction from the suffers point of view.  We would have liked to […]

Vice

Initially, we were surprised that Vice was in the Musical/Comedy section of the Golden Globes.   Last night went to a screening with USA Film Festival at the Alamo Draft House in Lake Highlands.  Now we are shocked!  It is a prime example of the liberal media machine pushing their agenda.  This movie is not funny […]

Mary, Queen of Scots

Mary, Queen of Scots is another highly anticipated film.  We are big fans of both Margot Robbie (Goodbye, Christopher Robin) & Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird).  This is Robbie’s “ugly” film, playing the strong Elizabeth I, determined to not be sidetracked by a man or men.   Small pox left the Queen scarred, hence the famous white […]

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.  […]

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

Finally, it’s here!  We have been telling anyone who would listen, and even some people who wouldn’t, this is the movie of the year!  Our favorite movie and winner of the 2018 People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.  We liked it so much we sent our husbands and they agreed.  We were […]

A Private War

We saw A Private War at a USA Film Festival screening at the Angelika Dallas theater in Mockingbird Station.  It is a very engrossing biopic about Marie Colvin, a foreign affairs correspondent for The Sunday Times, a London Paper.  She was a passionate, determined American journalist with a need to put a human face on […]

Outlaw King

If you are a fan of Braveheart, this is a movie for you.  Outlaw King was the opening night film for the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.  We saw it in Toronto and really enjoyed it.  Unfortunately, by the time we saw it, all of the talent had gone home.  The story begins during the […]

Boy Erased

At first glance, you might not think this material interests you, but this one is worth watching.  Boy Erased is another movie we saw at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.  Lucas Hedges (Ladybird, Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri) was in three movies this year.  So far, he seems to be an actor that […]

Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody focuses on the life of Freddy Mercury and how the band Queen came about.  Rami Malek does an excellent job in his portrayal of the insecure Mercury trying to come to terms with himself.  Lucy Boynton is adorable as Mary Austin his lifelong friend and anchor.  Allen Leech was surprising as Paul Prenter, […]
