The School For Good And Evil

Where I Watched It: Netflix Audio Description Provided By: International Digital Center Written By: Betty Capone Narrated By: Sri Gordon Netflix is obviously chasing the next big YA adaptation, as they are throwing everything they have at this super similar, but just different enough adventure that you may have felt like you’ve seen before. To do this, they recruited Paul Feig, and based on his previous work, ranging from Freaks and Geeks to Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters, Feig’s style is entirely not here. This feels more like a film directed by perhaps Ava Duvernay, as I felt more of her Wrinkle … Continue reading The School For Good And Evil

Two Days In The Valley

This Film Was Available In July on Amazon when I watched it, but I do not believe it is there anymore. I’m quite late on this review.

Explaining the plot is a spoiler in itself, … Continue reading F9: The Fast Saga

Actor Profile: Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron turns 40 today, and to celebrate, I’ll run down the roles I’m familiar with. It’s actually appropriate, as her film Dark Places opens today. Unfortunately, it’s not a very good movie. She’s had better roles. The first film I saw Charlize in was That Thing You Do!, but her actual breakout role I haven’t seen in The Devil’s Advocate. From there, she had a lot of misfires, but Hollywood never gave up on her. Eventually, she won an Oscar for Monster (which I haven’t seen), and earned more praise for roles like North Country, Young Adult, and recently Mad Max: Fury Road.
